Getting my Google official I/O version with Jelly Bean... this week
Interesting article on The Verge: Chris Ziegler and Vlad Savov debate whether the Galaxy Nexus is still the best Android phone, or whether it has been overtaken by the likes of the SGS3/One X:
Needless to say, I side with Vlad on this issue. Still, the fact that people can even be debating this topic when objectively, the hardware on the GNex is clearly outguned by its newer rivals, shows you just how much value there is in the stock Google experience.
Just saw the following on AndroidPolice:
F*** yeah!In a post to the Nexus Google+ page just minutes ago, it was revealed that the official rollout of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to the Galaxy Nexus is beginning now (just after its addition to AOSP), starting with HSPA+ connected Galaxy Nexus Devices. Users of Galaxy Nexus devices carrying the Yakju and Takju software variants should expect to receive an OTA prompt some time within the "next several days."
Install alogcat and post the update link before you do the update
I think my phone is currently updating OTA... 76%...
Well, I'll be blunt. I'm honestly not sure what the hell this phone is doing. It seemed like it was downloading an update, filename bigxie_maguro_JRO03C.zip
It finished, but now it doesn't seem to be doing anything. Now I'm not sure if a manual restart is required, and if so, how long I have to give the phone time to update itself- it's round about 230mb for the file.
Here's how to do the update manually: http://www.androidpolice.com/2012/07...c-takju-yakju/
I'm not keen on the idea of flashing a custom recovery though. I think I'll just force myself to be patient and wait for the OTA.
So, question: I hhave ClockworkMod installed, I think it is? used it to root and go to yakju. Would this cause the phone to fail an update?
