Along with its little brothers, the Nexus 7 and 4, the Nexus 10 Tablet is receiving an OTA (Over The Air) update today with version number 4.2.1 which serves to fix a few glitches that arrived with the coming of Jelly Bean 4.2.  Most notable was the absence of the month of December in the 'People' app.   Gladly, the year has 12 months again thanks to this fix.  It's a bit unclear what else has been tweaked with this update but Google has released the following info for those interested in the technical data of the release.

Quote
Project: platform/build
d4382dd : bump version to 4.2.1
476750c : JOP40D

Project: platform/external/bluetooth/bluedroid
0d15318 : Add HID gamepad/joystick as supported HID devices

Project: platform/frameworks/base
b361b30 : Revert "NumberPicker should adjust min and max when displayed values are set." (a.k.a. Santa is back)
cc2e849 : Notification vibration improvements: [DO NOT MERGE]


There may be some other updates in protected areas of the OS that we're unaware of as of yet.  Some Nexus 10 owners that have received the update already have commented that the OS is a bit snappier and smoother so there may in fact be some 'under the hood' fixes we're not aware of.   We'll update this post when more is know.

Mine still has not updated. I went in and had it check for anything new but it shows no updates available. I did see a downloaded file that may be the update but it's not changing anything. Any suggestions?

No not yet. Still wondering if I should root. Not sure of the benefits or drawbacks. This is my first android device, so kind of a rookie yet.

So was I until I rooted my Nexus 7, but that was so easy I rooted my Nexus 10 within days if getting it :D

Have a read through WUGFRESH'S toolkit thread on XDA DEVELOPEES: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1766475

His toolkit will root all Nexus devices, including 4, 7 & 10.

There are other toolkits but I personally prefer this one.

In the sister forum to this one, there is a walk through by S. PRIME (moderator on this and Nexus 7 forums) for rooting the Nexus 7 but it's very similar to do Nexus 10.

Read here: http://nexus7forum.com/nexus-7-root-hacks-mods-and-development/the-nexus7forum-com's-step-by-step-guide-to-rooting-the-nexus-7-tablet/?PHPSESSID=e8b92c70709202aaffa6888cca5fe470

Did you use WugFresh toolkit?

If so, post on his thread, the one above.

He will assist you.

I did use WugFresh Toolkit. I was somehow able to unlock the loader but when it goes to root the tablet it can't find an ADB device. Not sure what went wrong but now I can't root it nor lock it back up. Any ideas?

@Klevon.

Have a read through, and watch the videos in, mskip's thread on XDA, which is a different toolkit:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2001868

Just remembered that it was this one I used to root my Nexus 10.
