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."


The post also revealed that the HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus won't be alone in receiving an official Jelly Bean update. Android's latest and greatest iteration is expected to come to all Galaxy Nexus, Nexus S, and Motorola Xoom users as well. The post did not mention a specific time frame for those releases. "Of course," the post notes, the Nexus 7 "will ship with Jelly Bean later this month."

    dont mess this up sprint

    • sanman202

      Sprint? Who said Spring is giving the update? This is for the Galaxy Nexus HSPA version that is unlocked and not bought from a wireless carrier.

    This is happening quick! Can't wait to try it out on my Nexus S seemingly soon =D

    How can i tell takju and yakju apart from the one getting the OTA?! I have a GNex from Google Play not sure if it is takju or yakju or any other ending in kju hahahah

      If you bought if from the Play Store it is a takju

      • sanman202

        Anyone who bought a Gnex HSPA version from the Play Store will receive the JB update.

        • Ian Santopietro

          It's worth updating that both yakju and takju are now scheduled to be updated.

    • Kenny O

      I'm pretty sure the GNEX from the play stare is takju

    • BobbyCR

      So I'm not getting the OTA right away?!

      • David Gray

        No for a while, sorry man. BUT if youre ballsy you can change your phone back to yakju like I did. got the OTA within 5 mins after flashing back

      The only difference between takju and yakju is takju has the Google Wallet. takju is US HSPDA+ non carrier locked Galaxy Nexus and Yakju is the rest of the world.

    Verizon GNex. Have to depend on Verizon for the OTA (which might come when it is irrelevant) or Google will be pushing the envelope?

    • Ian Santopietro

      The update comes from Google's servers, but has to be approved by Verizon first.

    This might sound like a dumb question but does anyone know why android can't be updated via WiFi? So that carriers don't have to be involved with the update?

    • PhilNelwyn

      Most Android devices are updated via Wi-Fi, that's what O.T.A. means.
      But only Nexus devices receive updates directly from Google.

    • h_f_m

      You only need internet access over WiFi. Pull your SIM and it will still update. I have a nexus s laying around with no SIM and it gets updated no problem.

  • Seph

    When they said 'all' Galaxy Nexus, i hope they meant ALL including yakjuxw and other variants. I just got my 4.0.4 OTA last week (Singapore) Didn't want to go to flash route because it was just incremental update and i don't want to void my warranty yet.

    • David Gray

      Sorry man but they DON'T mean all, just yakju and takju

  • Javier Medina

    Does this mean my Galaxy Nexus from the Play Store will finally ship?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Andres-Barroeta/771021596 Andres Barroeta

    i have yakjuxw? is works also for me??? please help

    • kareem

      I followed these steps to get the good version of the phone. Do some reasearch about it before you start not only from the website I gave you below. Ofcourse no responsebility if you fuck it up :P First time I did something like this on a phone and it went well after reading different articles, in the end i followed this one:


      Even though it says yakjuux it worked for my yakjuxw version and I got the latest update at that time (4.0.4) instantly after upgrade. Hope this helps.

    • David Gray

      No, you will need to flash to yakju OR wait

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Andres-Barroeta/771021596 Andres Barroeta

    should i sell this phone in buy direct from google? my has the same box i9250 model

    • David Gray

      The model is fine but what VERSION do you have? IMM76I, IMM76K? Also you need to see if youre yakjuxw or a stock yakju build. Let me know what you got and I'll tell you IF you'll ever get JellyBean

  • Josh Curtis

    Just to be clear a international GSM Galaxy Nexus will gey the OTA In july!!???...

    • David Gray

      Not for sure, if your version is a yajku you'll get it but I think you have a yakjuwx

  • http://twitter.com/alksnitis Robert Alksnitis

    Just got my JB update. Location 33707 Florida. Finally it happened! i waited for more than day ;)

  • Burak Hazine

    My Galaxy Nexus is yakju but its ID ise IMM76D. Its Android 4.0.4. When do you I will receive the OTA update? And i have another question. I've heard that my phone's ID should be IMM76I, not IMM76D. Is it true? Does my phone has a problem with its software? :(

    • David Gray

      that is true, if you see IMM76D you'll be waiting. ou have yakjuwx NOT stock yakju...Samsung will update your handset. Sorry dude

  • rufus

    my phone has yakjuxw. IMM76K
    will it ever get the OTA?
