    unless you have the google direct version (yakju) your update schedule will depend on when your carrier releases it. If you aren't sure which version, you can go to google maps > settings > about. You will see something like yakjuxw listed. This will be your build. Only the Yakju and Takju builds are updated directly by google (and immediately). If you want the latest update directly from google every time, you can flash the yakju build on your phone. There are instructions for doing so posted here on the forum.

    Do you have the G-Nex purchased from the Google Play store in the USA? With the last 2 updates I had to hook my phone up to WiFi, and as soon as I did that the updates came in.

    If you didn't get your G-Nex from the Play store in the USA you will have to wait for your carrier to push out the OTA update to you.

    I got mine through Vodafone in the UK, it doesn't seem branded or locked.i got the update to 4.1.2 a couple of days after release.

    Like wise updates within an week

    My nexus was from 02 yakju

    Release schedule usually goes
    Takju (us version with Google wallet)
    Yakju
    Then all the others at some point yakjujw etc

    To me this defeats the ideologically of nexus range
    Why have devices that still wait for manufacturer or carrier approval

    Got the yakju version, not branded or locked. But on Vodafone.

    I got 4.1.2 pretty quick but just waiting for 4.2, thought I would've had it by now, even had to try the Google service framework trick but no luck.

    I'm not sure why but I don't believe Google has released 4.2 for yakju. The one comment I've found from Google is, "The Android 4.2 system update is still rolling out gradually to eligible Galaxy Nexus devices, but we haven't quite started it for yakju yet. We're working on it and hope to expand the rollout before long. There's no timeline I'm able to provide."

    My guess is it should start rolling out next week.

    As a rule, the GSM i.e. Google (SIM-Free) versions get releases first, followed (sometime and much later) by the versions issued by the individual carriers. If you look at the US carriers track records you will note that many Yanks were moaning that they were still waiting for 4.1.2 several months after the GSM ROMs were updated. Whatever your (GSM) build, yakju or takju, you have access to and can flash the takju factory image of 4.2, which has been avasilable from Googles developer site for over a week now. The only difference between the two builds is that takju includes Google Wallet, which won't be enabled on your yakju anyway since your regional identifier is Non-US. The takju build ROM works perfectly on a yakju build. I flashed this last week but preferred my ParanoidAndroid ROM because of the customisations.
    So, the moral of this story is you can have 4.2 already - just flash via adb or learn how to.

    Under about it says Samsung yakju. But the phone was not bought in the us. Could you link the thread about flashing it?

    Here are easy instructions on how to flash yakju or takju onto your Galaxy Nexus. As has been mentioned, 4.2 for yakju has not yet been released by Google, but there are links at the bottom for downloading 4.2 takju.

    Google has not started the rollout of 4.2 to International phones yet, though it should happen "soon" (my guess is this week or next week).

    I went into about phone to check for an update and it popped up. I'm impressed with it so far.

    Grr, I've tried that a few times, and my phone was the same situation as you, not locked or branded and im with Vodafone UK. Hopefully have it by this time tomorrow.

    Have you tried doing the whole 'force stop' and 'clear data' for the google services framework app, then check for updates again? It seems to work for some people.

    the clear data option never appears on mine, just says computing.

    Starting to think you should not mind waiting. A lot of minor inconveniences. Crashing Swype beta, can't find user dictionary in new 4.2 keyboard, notifications issues with third party software, starbucks app crashing, etc.

    As I said, minor stuff, but still irritating.
