Default Actual Jelly Bean Update!

Virgin Mobile just pushed out the Jelly Bean update, I'm downloading it now and I will update with more screen shots when I finish the download. If you want to force the update go to application manager>all>google service frameworks>clear data>force stop and then check for updates again, and it should (should) push the update.

Samsung also threw in Page Buddy into the update. If you plug in headphones or dock your phone a special home screen window appears.
Son is off to school. Now I feel like taking my Reverb and going back to stock so I could get the update and seeing what else is new.

It should work if you haven't unistalled anything stock or haven't flashed custom recoveries.

Default How to force your phone to update

Someone posted this on the Reddit thread about this, and I wanted to share it with you!
  1. Go to application manager
  2. all
  3. Google service frameworks
  4. force stop
  5. Go to about phone
  6. Check for System Update

Apparently it may take a few attempts, but I did it in this order once and it worked for me!

It does work. Its a known thing to do. The best thing is to reboot after you fc the apk. It will save you having to do it numerous times

I'm currently stuck at the Samsung boot screen(the last one before you see the lock screen), going to leave it there for an hour and see if it boots up or not. If not, I don't know what to do .

Mine just started downloading the installation package now even though I'm rooted. I never flashed a different rom but I think I froze some Samsung crapware. Dunno if that would affect an OS upgrade though.

You should be OK as long as you haven't changed your recovery. Be warned though, once you update you WILL lose root and at the moment there is no way to get root back. Poot will no longer work.

Yeah that's kind of disappointing. Although I won't have to worry about it for now because it failed during installation. Said I'm missing PolarisViewer.apk, which sounds vaguely familiar. Probably something I considered bloatware that I uninstalled. I thought I was careful in freezing the things I thought were important and all that sounded like was an image viewer. Gonna have to start looking for the apk.

I'm hopeful that was the only important thing I completely got rid of because I was pretty careful about freezing and not removing altogether.

Update: I found Polaris and installed it, but now I can't get it to try to install the update again. Just gives the "your phone is up to date" when i'm still on ICS. I googled around and found that the same thing has happened to others on other phones (Nexus) where the OTA update fails and then they can't get it to try again. I tried FCing Google Services Framework and restarting but still won't initiate the update.

My guess is that the update is rolling out, not everyone will get it immediately. You know, because a few hundred MBs takes a toll on a data network.

I ended up doing a factory reset to see if that would get the update back but so far no dice. Pretty frustrating. Wish there was a way to download it as an offline package and transfer it to the phone.

I'm having a problem myself, here. When I check for updates, it gives me the update for the MB3 baseband that doesn't flash. So right now I can't upgrade because of that stupid MB3 update. Any suggestions?

Default Have any of y'all receive the Jelly Bean 4.1.2 Update Yet for the Samsung GALAXY Reverb™?

I went to the My Account App on my Galaxy Reverb and I got a thing saying that there's a software update, then I go to Settings - About device - System updates then it say that I'm currently updated.I haven't receive the update yet, but I'm super excited!

Beware though if you tether because this update breaks FoxFi and any other non-root wifi tether app. I wish someone had told me and I would not have accepted the downgrade. If you lose functionality, then yes by definition it is a downgrade.

Instead of just force stopping it I cleared the data also and it worked right away.

EDIT: Never mind, it was just the MB3, or whatever its called update.
I'm frustrated. I want Jelly Bean!

My install failed a couple days ago and I haven't been able to get it back after FCing and clearing Google Services Framework and even doing a factory reset. I'm worried that the system is skipping over me now thinking that it succeeded. Pretty bummed.

I tried the procedure above many times with no success. But, when I added a step 3.5 "clear data" to the procedure in the OP it worked right away. Previously I wasn't clearing the data, or was clearing the data after the force stop. clear data, force stop, use the back button and check for update right away worked. Might just have gotten lucky , but try it.

I had a thought that maybe you would also have to wipe dalvik cache due to the new kernel.

I've done this before and got the MB3 or whatever update. I'll keep trying.

This happened to me also. The only way I could flash the MB3 was via Kies through the PC. After I did the flash successfully, the JB update started downloading.
