Hello all, I know that att's 4.2 update came out January 29, and it's been longer than 1 month, yet my phone still has not gotten the OTA update. nothing comes up for both system updates or software updates in my settings, and my phone is not rooted. any other possible solutions since i dislike updating through PC?

But if you ever want to unlock your bootloader and root your phone you need to do it before taking the update.

It shouldn't wipe any data but make backups just in case. If it's your brother's phone then he should be doing the work, I don't assist when the person who owns the phone isn't willing to do the learning and the work.
