Earlier today, we told you that the Verizon Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean update has finally started rolling out to customers. While many see the update, others just can’t get the ball rolling. Well, with a simple trick, Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners who haven’t seen the update should be able to download it right now.
It looks like the Verizon Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean update has only arrived for select folks as it goes live over the Air. So far, I haven’t received the OTA update yet.
However, using a little trick, users should be able to manually update and start using Android 4.1 Jelly Bean right now. It may take a few tries, but this method should work.
For those out of luck, follow these instructions and you should be up and running in no time to Jelly Bean and all its new features.
1. Go to Settings -> Apps -> All
2. Find Google Services Framework.
3. Tap Force Stop.
4. Select Clear Data.
5. Go back to Settings of Verizon Galaxy Nexus, go to About and check for System Update.
For many, this should bring up a download prompt and the Jelly Bean installation process will begin shortly. As always, the process can take some time, so be patient. It also appears that owners must be connected to a Wi-Fi network at this point. Trying to do this over the cellular network probably won’t work.
Verizon says it will be available over Wi-Fi until October 1.
For the impatient, this is something you’ll want to try instead of waiting for the update, which can only take a few hours or possibly days.
Let us know how it works.
