Google themselves have just announced that Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean is rolling out for the international (HPSA+) Samsung Galaxy Nexus starting today. Right now the update is rolling out as we speak and as long as you don’t have the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, you can enjoy the latest and greatest from Google.
The update has already arrived on our Nexus 7 tablet a matter of minutes ago, but we are still waiting for it to arrive on our Google IO edition Galaxy Nexus phones. While we wait you can rest assured that Google themselves announced the update was rolling out today only a few minutes ago over on Google+.
This should also be arriving for all the Galaxy Nexus phones sold through the Google Play store over the past month or so, not just the original international model. Google mentions next on the list is “all Galaxy Nexus devices” so hopefully Verizon is up next. Then the Nexus S followed by the Motorola XOOM. We’ll be sure to update once we hear any additional details but for now you should probably head to settings > about phone > check for updates and enjoy the awesome new Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean with Google Now. For more information about both check out our review and videos below, or head to our Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Portal.
Is this just in the US?
Should be international as it is for all HSPA+/GSM Galaxy Nexus phones
Is Google now handling all updates ? I’m in Australia & our nexus updates go through our carrier first . We are still on 4.01 🙁
Still on 4.01 eww. Should at least be 4.0.3 by now. Hopefully you get it soon. Otherwise root that baby and flash some Jelly Bean buddy
Will do soon Cory..got a Nexus to do otherwise though . Dissapointed !!
lol a lot of people get a Nexus so they can hack. I guess it goes both ways.
Nice 1 cheers!
This wouldn’t be flashable to a Vodafone UK device would it effectively GEDifying like we all did our none US Xooms.
I wish I could use this operating system now. I have Verizon and will have to wait.
Hopefully not too long. Most of the delay with 4.0.4 was caused by the updated radios. If the radios aren’t updated this time, it could come quicker.
I’ve been running Android 4.1 JB on my Verizon GNex for 2 weeks. Check out XDA for a few good ROMS. They run flawless
I’m giving Verizon a week. Then I’m updating my Nexus manually.
I wouldn’t hold your breath with Verizon.
verizon sucks i wish i had unlimited with ATT
Why wait for Verizon I’ve had JB since June 30th
Anyone got the update already from Google? Just curious 🙂
You can download it direct from Google and flash with stock recovery if you’d like. Make sure you know what you’re doing though. This download direct from Google is for the takju HSPA+ version.
Ok thanks 😉 I will look into it!
thanks again 😉 worked as a charm!
I just got update 4.1 its amazing. Its really fast. Galaxy nexus.
Some tip to push the OTA Faster?
On this ota u can’t do anything… just wait
When will Sprint Galaxy Nexus get the update?
Just got the update. Can’t say I love new grey-cyan interface over old cyan. But it works. May be even a bit faster.
Also animation has changed itself, not only “buttering” was done here. 7/10
I’m really hoping the Verizon Gnex gets updated soon. I’m getting more and more irritated with their practices, and I’m looking forward to the day I can move away from their phones and service.
I got the update on early Saturday morning and I am loving it – only had one app that I don’t use often that isn’t compatible yet, and flash works fine on it.
ive been spamming the update button for 3 days now.
still no update
neeed that update!!!!
if check for updates not showing 4.1 update for G-nex wat cud be the reason???
