Android 4.1.2 OTA Hitting GSM Galaxy Nexus Phones
Last week, Google pushed Android 4.1.2 live, integrating its changes into the Android Open Source Project. The initial distribution of 4.1.2 arrived as updates for Nexus 7 tablets, and in the days that followed, we saw Google add some new 4.1.2 factory images for other hardware. There’s a time and a place for installing one of those, but most users were looking for updates that would bring them to 4.1.2 without having to start from scratch. Luckily, it looks like there was only a short wait before Google got to releasing the new Android for some of its Nexus phones, with reports now coming in of OTA notifications for the Galaxy Nexus.
Specifically, we’re talking about the international HSPA+ GNex here, and not the CDMA version available in the States. Even more specifically, the update is arriving for yakju builds already at JRO03C. Android 4.1.2 brings that up to JZO54K.
If you haven’t seen the update arrive, despite being on a yakju and JRO03C, you needn’t wait any longer, and can get started with a manual install. There’s a detailed thread over on the XDA-Developers forums that keeps track of all these updates for Galaxy Nexus phones, and has the JZO54K Android 4.1.2 update ready for you to install.
