Verizon Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean Update Rolling Out Now



After months of waiting, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean update is finally rolling out which means that all Nexus devices in the United States slated to get the upgrade to Android 4.1 have finally received the software.

We’ve been tipped by several readers who say that the update is rolling out right now to Verizon Galaxy Nexus devices and so it appears that the roll out indeed has begun.

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean originally rolled out in July so it has been a long, arduous wait for Galaxy Nexus owners on Verizon.


The Verizon Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean update has arrived.

What’s interesting is that we have had a couple of readers say that they were only able to pull down the update when connected to a Wi-Fi network and the update is saying that it will only be available that way until October 1st. As of right now, we can’t confirm that it doesn’t work over cellular but to be safe, it’s probably wise to connect to Wi-Fi before installing the update.

The update itself is fairly big and those who are replacing Ice Cream Sandwich with Jelly Bean are going to want to remain patient as the update both downloads and installs.

Once the update finishes though, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus will finally be on par with the rest of the Nexus devices and the it will be running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which is a vast improvement over Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

With its smooth and fast UI, offline voice dictation, improved camera software and more, this is an update worth installing, even for those comfortable on Ice Cream Sandwich.

So, if you own a Galaxy Nexus on Verizon, you’ll want to check for the update now. It might be sitting there waiting for you to download.

Let us know how the process goes and enjoy.

      Try going to settings apps all google frame work then force close and clear it all then go to the dialer type in *#*#2432546#*#* then go to to settings about phone system update and that should work it worked first try with me but with my sisters and moms it took like 3 tries so don’t get mad if it doesn’t work the first time

    Got my update. Tried about 10 times. Go to settings>apps>all>Google Framework Services. Then push “Force Stop,” then “Clear Data.” After go to system updates and push “Check for update.” Again I did this about 10 times and it worked. Also, it is Wifi only, and I disabled mobile data while trying. You’ll get the update, just may take a few tries.

        Also, I had been trying this since yesterday, with no success…the key was doing it over and over again, one attempt after the other. FYI, I am in upstate NY.

      Well, I’m near Chicago. Not sure if it has anything to do with it, but I tried a few times when I woke up, and got nothing. Waited an hour, and now I’m updated. You’ll get it within an hour or so I’m guessing.

    Now I wonder if Verizon had not planned it (Jelly Bean release) this way all along…timed to compete with the release of the new iPhone?!

    In Las Vegas and still no updat, ugh.
    I’ve tried every trick in the book to try to force the OTA with no luck.

  23. Joseph

    09/22/2012 at 6:25 am

    Got the update in Illinois with the clear data on framework trick, running Jelly bean now! :D

  24. Coleman

    09/22/2012 at 10:31 am

    I got it on my 4th consecutive try. I just cleared the data instead of force stop then clearing. I’m in Atlanta btw

  25. Steve

    09/22/2012 at 11:40 am

    I turned off mobile data and then tried the method and it worked the second time. Doing it with mobile data enabled didn’t work, even after dozens of times.

  26. Jefhart

    09/22/2012 at 2:25 pm

    Did the framework trick twice and it updated. I’m in Cincinnati. Thanks for the tip guys!

  27. RJ

    09/22/2012 at 2:57 pm

    Did the framework trip in Madison, WI as well. It worked! Thanks for the tip.

  28. Rob

    09/22/2012 at 3:38 pm

    I was going to allow myself 50 tries on the “Google Framework” fix before I gave up completely. It worked on attempt 47!! Worked great if you have the patience!

  29. Shannon

    09/22/2012 at 4:16 pm

    Nothing in NC yet – tried all the tricks!

  30. Dave Wolf

    09/22/2012 at 6:40 pm

    tryed the Google Framework and got it after about 10 times. East Central Iowa.

  31. Dean

    09/22/2012 at 9:09 pm

    It took me around 15 times but it worked…. Finally got Jellybean! New Orleans area.

  32. Brian

    09/23/2012 at 3:28 am

    Got the update in Tampa yesterday. Force close and clear data in IMS framework and Google services framework. Took me about 5 or 6 times. G/F got it about an hour later the same way. But it will not download until you’re on Wi-Fi. Jelly Bean rocks.

  33. getoff

    09/23/2012 at 3:50 am

  40. Patrick

    09/24/2012 at 6:40 am

    OK I was skeptical that the Google Services Framework thing would work – and after an hour doing it the other day I gave up. Tried it again today about three times and it worked! Macon, GA area!
