Android 4.2.1 update rolling out to Canadian Galaxy Nexus

Only a couple of months late, the yakjuux variant of Galaxy Nexus is finally receiving its Android 4.2.1 software update.
March 18, 2013

Unless you got the takju and yakju variants of the Galaxy Nexus, you can be sure that whenever Google is serving a new version of Android, you’ll have to wait a little bit longer to get the software updates – though your handset will eventually catch up with them.

For folks in Canada who have been waiting to get a taste of the newer Jelly Bean version, the time has come to make the jump, as Samsung is now pushing out the Android 4.2.1 software to the yakjuux variant of Galaxy Nexus.

We’re hearing reports from Galaxy Nexus owners on Telus, Rogers, WIND, and Fido that they have received the software bump up, but it may not really matter which carrier you’re on. While it’s not exactly the latest flavor of Jelly Bean, at least you’ll only be one update cycle behind. Plus, it’s worth noting that Android 4.2.2 was only officially released in February.
