The Android 4.2 update rollout for the GSM Galaxy Nexus is currently underway, particularly for the takju variant. We already saw Google making the latest Jelly Bean factory image for said variant available on its website yesterday. Now, it appears the update has hit the international GSM Galaxy Nexus, or the yakju build, as well as the Nexus 7.
The Android 4.2 system update for the yakju Galaxy Nexus build was first spotted by Ausdroid. Aside from the Nexus phone, the update to the latest Android OS has also hit the Nexus 7 in Australia, while device owners in the UK, Canada and several other countries have reported seeing the OTA update notification on their tablets.
Judging from the lack of celebratory posts on XDA, we don’t think the fresh scoop of jelly for the Galaxy Nexus (yakju) is available for that many users right now. We’ll see whether Google will crank up its update machine today.
Any Galaxy Nexus owners out there who have the yakju build can confirm getting the Android 4.2 software update? Likewise, we’d love to hear from Nexus 7 owners about the new jelly flavor on their tablet.

I received the OTA for 4.2 for the nexus 7 last night around 9 EST. I haven’t taken a big advantage of the multi user just yet but I’m digging the keyboard for sure.
yea the new keyboard will get me using my N7 much more frequently. the new clock is pretty slick too. have yakju GSM galaxy nexus –still unable to get 4.2 update :(…
I have the 4.2 Update on my Nexus7. But im still waiting for the update on the Galaxy Nexus (yakju). (I´m from Germany)
Nothing for yakju yet. Odd thing is until recently yakju used to be the first to updated.
Just got my Jellybean 4.2 on my Yakju here in the states (T-Mobile)
There is hint with forced to close Google Services Framework?
I try but nothing …pfff
Still no love for my yakju in europe… the trick with google framework does not help
Someone be a hero and grab the yakju ota url from catlog.
I have an international GN running stock 4.1.2 takju. I tried to sideload it and I got a radio error while updating. I upgraded my N7 to 4.2 without problems
Got 4.2 on nexus 7 tablet in Aruba, i’m from the US though.
Still no 4.2 on my N7 in the uk . I guess it just a matter of waiting
helps to clear the cache of the google services framework, try that trick, always worked for me! ;)
I was greeted with the update this morning (7 AM Spain [GMT+1] time) on my Nexus 7. Got to love the new quick settings!
Mind you, until I updated Nova, it had issues, and I may do a factory reset just in case (and unlock the bootloader, I was waiting for this OTA to root it)
No 4.2 update to my yakju GN yet in Aus, by AM 15 Nov.

Lol to everyone who’s freaking out. Im in the US with unlocked tmobile Gnex and I got the update an hour ago. Just be patient you guys. It’s a small update with the Photosphere, quick settings, daydream feature and a keyboard swipe thing. You guys will be OKAY if you don’t get them. Haha. Relax and breathe.
I got my update yesterday afternoon in Canada, but I get the Red Triangle halfway through the install.I had flashed Takju on and the original 4.1 Jelly Bean OTA installed fine. I used the official radio for Takju, didnt bother flashing a different radio, yet i cant install. Anybody else with probs?
