    4.2 is getting a security update also. There will be a built in anti virus scanner, which you can opt in/out. The permissions page will be much more user friendly to understand and also there will be an alert if an app tries to send an SMS message to a premium service. First time hearing of it today but here is the article.

    It was posted in AC front page a few days ago Android 4.2 brings new security features to scan sideloaded apps | Android Central .
    also this was uncovered a month ago by some developer looking at the apk [APK Teardown] The Play Store Is Getting A Built-In Malware Scanner, Wish List Progress, And More.

    I just ordered my Netgear PTV3000 for pickup at my local BestBuy on Saturday. I can't wait to get miracast running. Some online stores are already out of stock.

    OK. Someone please explain miracast. Just bought a new fancy Samsung Smart-TV. Up to my chin figuring out what I need to use it well. Special router, Roku, sling, nomad, now miracast. Heaven help the helpless and overwhelmed and tech-challenged! Y Nexus 7 is what started all this!

    And for those of you telling others "you don't need av/security on your Nexus 7, just a waste of space and performance hit", make note of this line in the BGR link above.

    The Android platform has been targeted with malware more than any other mobile operating system, however with the latest Jelly Bean software version, Google doing more than ever to keep users safe.

    Isn't most of this from side loaded apps? Google also does a scan of apps before they are placed into the Play store.

    Factory image is already up on https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images, installed yesterday and still kills tethering (same as 4.1). Much faster and better overall performance..but haven't had much time to play
    What do you mean it kills tethering? Does it not allow me to use wi-fi tether from my phone for the internet?

    Yeah, Miracast will be cool. ... When standard-compliant Miracast devices are available. Read Phil's N4 review to see how far he got with one the NetGear Push2TV devices.

    Does this mean Nexus 7 delivered after Nov 13 will be loaded with 4.2? I stopped by my local Fry's today and they haven't been able to keep any in stock. Next stock arrival is Nov 17. Hoping it will have 4.2.

    Even if it doesn't, it's a simple and automated upgrade.

    Yes. None. Wait for compatible adapters, or confirmation of updates for existing "pre-standard compliant" devices.

    And it's "Miracast" IIRC.

    Thanks...that was going to be my next question. One less worry on my mind about what version it came with.

    Android 4.2 is so awesome with the introduction of Google but it is still waiting to test.
    because Google hasn't been a part of android before?
