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.
