Google's Android code just got a minor bump.

Per reports, a brand new source code has surfaced on Android Open Source Project, or popularly known as AOSP, tagged android-4.2.1_r1.2, version JOP40G. The source code, although minor, presents some needed and interesting bug fixes to the operating system.

The new version JOP40G, per an Android Central report, is said to have "some power management fixes as well as a tweak to the way an EXT4 partition handles file creation. These fixes are not device specific, so they will affect the Nexus 10, Nexus 7, and Nexus 4. We imagine the Galaxy Nexus will also see the benefits of this build."

This will be highly beneficial to some people who have complained in the past that their device would shut off when removed from the charger, and the new updated code is expected to address those issues. However, there's no word on when to expect an update, or if even any such update is planned for the tag.

However, it is to be noted that this update is nothing similar to the mysterious Android 4.2.2 version that made rounds on the Internet in the past, and the new update also doesn't include the Bluetooth fix that was mentioned by a Google employee last month. The Bluetooth fix is said to be one of the biggest points of the 4.2.2 refresh.

Earlier, the Google employee posted a note to the bug's comment page stating that the A2DP bug had already been fixed by the company, and the other change would be present in the "next release" of Android.

Nonetheless, Android 4.2.2 seems to be a thing of the future and the more burning issue with the Android operating system is presently arriving from the current generation Android Jelly Bean 4.2.1, and the company has a boatload of bugs to fix in the version.

As far as Android 4.2.2 is concerned, it was also previously spotted running on a Google Nexus 4. There were screenshots of the refresh running on the 8GB variant of the device that made rounds on the Internet.

"Despite the point-difference in the build number, the device reportedly doesn't have anything different from your everyday's Nexus 4 running Jelly Bean 4.2.1 (except "dev-keys" at the end of the build number)," a Pocektnow report stated.
