Forcing Your Verizon Galaxy Nexus To Download Android Jelly Bean.

DDMS IconNever Miss Another Deal - Follow DansDeals on Facebook

Not my typical post here, but if you are a Verizon Galaxy Nexus user like I am this update will make you fall in love with your smartphone all over again. After playing with it for the past few hours it’s obvious that Jelly Bean is bar none the best mobile operating system out there, but feel free to talk about that and more in the tech forum on DDF.

The “hack” goes like this.
1. Connect to a Wi-Fi network.
2. Go into Settings>Apps>All.
3. Scroll down to and click “Google Services Framework”
4. Click on “Force stop” and press OK.
5. Click on “Clear data” and press OK.
6. Go into Settings>About phone>System updates and you will be able to download Jelly Bean to your phone.

Post a comment if that works for you.  And Galaxy S III owners don’t fret, you’ll have Jelly Bean goodness very soon as well!

Funny, I just did this last night. What differences do you see with jelly bean?


what about galaxy S II, anyway to get it?


No he meant bar


It took me quite a few tries to get this to work, as apparently your battery level needs to be nearly full (at least 80% IME). Once I got it downloaded I was up until 3 playing around with it. Thanks Dan!
