Android 4.2 update rolling out to ‘yakju’ Galaxy Nexus, factory image up online

We get your frustration. It’s been more than a week since the takju variant of Galaxy Nexus received its Android 4.2 update, but the yakju variant has been seemingly left out from the fun.

This time it’s not a false alarm – the software upgrade to the latest version of Jelly Bean (build JOP40C) is now rolling out to the yakju Galaxy Nexus. If the screenshot below isn’t convincing enough, just head to Google’s website and you’ll find the latest factory image for the phone.

You may not see the notification update right away, but if you simply need your Android 4.2 fix now, there’s a known trick to speed up the process. Simply go to Settings, Apps, All and tap on “Google Services Framework”. Then click Clear Data and Force Stop, and restart the phone before checking for the update. You may have to do it more than once. As for the usual disclaimer, proceed at your own risk. We don’t  really recommend doing it as it may mess up the device’s Google Play settings.

Now, we’d love to hear from yakju Galaxy Nexus owners out there. Did you get the update yet? For those who have, what do you like or dislike most about the new Jelly?
