    I'm pretty you can download the update yourself. I'm betting its somewhere on these forums.

    It sounds as if you have a non-yakju version of Android on your Nexus; Google only is updating takju and yakju. You can find your version by going into the Map app, into Settings>About and see what is listed under Device.

    You can use these instructions to change your Nexus to Jellybean and yakju, so that future updates will be pushed by Google.

    IMO just wait for the official update to come to your phone OTA (Over The Air). you're really not missing that much. enjoy your phone - it's awesome as is.

    good luck.

    The instructions on that webpage, using the Toolkit, makes it very easy. Basically, you will unlock your phone. After the phone is unlocked, you are essentially following the steps to lock the phone again, which includes installing the official version of Jellybean. You also don't need to download Jellybean (though you can) as the toolkit will do it for you. And you do not need to root your phone, despite the fact the process says you are unrooting it.

    Also, as I mentioned previously, after following the instructions your phone will be yakju -- the version that automatically updates when Google releases new Android updates for the Galaxy Nexus.

    I believe that you are not supposed to do this on a Verizon phone.

    Do NOT flash a GSM ROM on your Verizon Nexus. Head over to XDA-Developers and get a Verizon specific copy of 4.1. Using Wugs toolkit will NOT download a CDMA ROM.

    Agreed that it should not be done on a Verizon phone (Galaxy Nexus i515). In this case the OP stated they have the Nexus i9250, which is the GSM version.

    I finally found out why!

    Nexus Products are two groups:
    1- Yakju and Takju

    the second group still don't have updates and it is going to take a while but if you convert them to Yakju or Takju it will work! If anyone knows how please contact me.

    You must not have read anything in this thread that mogelijk has posted, which told you almost 4 months ago what you "finally found out why today".

    I usually hate to sound like a jerk, but mogelijk not only answered your question but gave you a link to do what you asked about. If you didn't really want the answer why ask the question?

    Let's keep it friendly here. People often don't read through the past posts when they post on these older threads and it was easy for me to repost the link.

    I have 2 questions. I need 2 answers. Question #1::: how can I use voice command to make a phone call? I want to be able to say "call Jim's cell phone" and have my phone dial his. It won't do that, but when I'm driving it's kind of necessary.

    Question #2):::: for a while my screen would shut off in 3 seconds when I laid it face down. It doesn't do that anymore. How can I make it do that again?

    3 ways. Either create a shortcut to google search on your home screen (the blue g icon), tap the microphone in the search bar, or Swipe up from the bottom to open Google now. Say "Google" (which will activate voice recognition) "Call Jim Smith Cell". At which time it will bring up Jim Smith's contact. You have about 5 seconds to cancel if it is not the right contact.... otherwise, there is a blue bar beneath it that is basically a countdown timer...which when it reaches the end, will dial the listed contact.

    That would be relying on the proximity sensor, but that only works in-call. The minimum screen time-out is 15 seconds otherwise. I've never seen any setup that uses the proximity sensor not in-call.

    That's actually a really good idea. In theory, it should also prevent the screen from turning on in your pocket, preventing pocket dialing. If the proximity sensor is triggered, it would probably be wise to assume the screen is covered and shouldn't turn or respond to input.

    In theory of course.

    It would also make using the upper portion of the touch screen problematic....
