Google's Android 4.2.1 update brings back December

Android logoGoogle launched a minor patch for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean this morning. Android 4.2.1, also known as JPO40D, is 1.1MB in size. It will slowly roll out to Nexus 4 handsets and Nexus 10 tablets, and though the Nexus 7 and Galaxy Nexus haven't been officially confirmed, it's possible those two devices are on the update roster as well. Users can also download the update file from Google's servers.

So far, the most notable change in the small update is that it brings back the month of December to the People app. Google had mistakenly left out the month of December in Android 4.2, leaving those with poor memories struggling to remember the birthdays and anniversaries of their loved ones.

As noted by the Android Police, the update most likely fixes a few other bugs as well, though they are not as apparent as the glitch in the contacts app. The list of files that have received changes is extensive and seems to include patches for things like Bluetooth connectivity, Android's new FaceLock feature, and Google's Voice Search.
