Instructions

1. If you are on any 4.0.x ROM, it is highly suggested you do a full factory reset (wipe data/cache in recovery) prior to flashing Jellybean!

2. If you are upgrading from a 4.1.2 JB ROM you may be able to just wipe cache and dalvik cache.

  • Wipe accordingly as outlined above
  • Use your recovery to flash the ROM file
  • Do NOT flash any gapps - they are all included
  • Optionally, flash the baseband (radio) update if you'd like the newest one
  • Reboot - be patient, the initial boot may take a few minutes

Downloads

Primary Link (Goo.im)



So alangrig made zip for takju and yakju update via CWM: preserves CWM and Root permission. Just don't forget in CWM after update before reboot choose fix SU. Works flawlessy

Download link:
takju (works great)
yakju (looks like it has a bootloop bug)

Make sure to make back up.
I take no responsibilities for any outcome.
This update works flawlessly on my Gnexus takju and version


official takju - aosp | OTA


Make sure you follow the methods below.


Method 1


Note: the method 1 below will work just fine for JB — but you will need to re-flash CWM, and rename /system/etc/install-recovery.sh once you are booted.

1) Download the correct update for your build on to your computer;
2) Open the archive and delete the recovery folder; EDIT: Do NOT do this step if it you are using any Jelly Bean update, i.e., JRN84D or newer.
3) Copy the file to /sdcard on your device;
4) Reboot into CWM;
5) Select “install zip from sdcard”;
6) Select “choose zip from sdcard”;
7) Select the update the you just copied to your device;
8) Wait until it completes. Reboot. Done.

Method 2 – Stock recovery installed, Unlocked bootloader
1) Download the correct update for your build on to your computer;
2) Copy the file to /sdcard on your device;
3) Download CWM from here and place it on your computer in the same directory as your fastboot binary. For CDMA/LTE devices, use this version;
4) Rename the CWM image to cwm.img
5) Reboot into fastboot mode;
6) Open a command prompt in the same directory;
7) Type fastboot devices to make sure your device is recognized;
8) Type fastboot boot cwm.img
9) Select “install zip from sdcard”;
10) Select “choose zip from sdcard”;
11) Select the update the you just copied to your device;
12) Wait until it completes. Reboot. Done.

Method 3 – Stock recovery locked bl, no root

1) Reboot your device into the stock recovery (i.e., the screen with the Android on its back with the “!”;
2) Access the stock recovery menu by pressing power and volume up;
3) Select “Apply update from ADB”;
4) Download the correct update for your build and place it in the same directory as your ADB binary;
5) Open a command prompt in the same directory as your ADB binary;
6) Type adb devices to make sure that your device is recognized;
7) Type adb sideload name-of-file.zip
8) Reboot. Done.

Please note: your device should also be running build JZO54K before trying to install the update manually.

Hey guys, Does it matter if were on Takju or Yakju? And I have TWRP installed. Will I have to reflash that after I am finished or will this take away Root completely?

you need to be stock takju 4.1.2, you can be rooted but you will lose root and you will lose cwm as well but it will take you 5 mins to root and flash cwm so not that big of a deal

same situation with takju/maguro:4.1.2/JZO54K rooted and CWM touch.. so the file which is present in the download link at the start of the -topic ..
Install zip from sd card.. and this should work.. minus the root? yes

Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OTA (JOP40C) already rolling out to GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus
If you own a GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus, it might behoove you to check your device settings right about now, as we’re starting to see reports on the Interwebz that Android 4.2 (aka Jelly Bean) is in the process of rolling already. The boys over at Android Police have spotted posts on both Google+ and Twitter, with users already posting screenshots of build JOP40C installed on their phones.


The update brings along with it the awesome new Photosphere feature (which I’m still trying to perfect my hand at), as well as Gesture Typing support, but unfortunately does not include multiple user support, like the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 versions of the OS will offer. Don’t be surprised if we see it ported over to the phone though, as we all know how the Android development community works. Even if we don’t really need the function, I’m sure someone will make it happen, just because they can.

Sprint and Verizon GNex owners, you already know the drill. Even though your device is a Nexus, you’re still going to have to wait a bit until your respective carriers get all the details sorted out.

As for you GSM owners, feel free to check for the update now. Be sure to stop back and let us know if you’ve already gotten it, and how it’s treating you if you’re already rocking it.
whats the point of posting this?

    Still no link for Yakju OTA???? Riciculous... :D

    Ya its a good thing I flashed my yakju to takju so I could get the OTA quicker.

    ---------- Post added at 03:51 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:40 PM ----------

    hi, I have the yakjuux — Variant for Canada. Which procedure I should follow??

    You would first have to flash your phone to either to yakju or takju to receive the OTA. I would recommend flashing to takju so you get the OTA faster than the yakju version.

    1. Backup your phone (contacts, SMS, media, etc)

    2. Download the takju image for 4.2 (no need to get 4.1.2 and then get OTA. Better off flashing 4.2 from the get go) from here: https://dl.google.com/dl/android/aosp/takju-jop40c-factory-1a47c890.tgz

    3. Extract that into a directory. I suggest into one directory on your C: Drive for simplicity sake.

    4. Make sure your drivers are working properly - i.e. adb drivers.

    5. Download the adb and fastboot files from here; http://downloadandroidrom.com/file/GalaxyNexus/rooting/GalaxyNexusRootNew.zip

    6. Extract only the adb.exe, AdbWinApi.dll, AdbWinUsbApi.dll, and fastboot.exe into the directory where you saved your Takju 4.2 image from.

    7. When you have that all done. Turn your phone into the bootloader menu. By pressing Volume Up + Volume Down + Power Key until you see the word Bootloader.

    8. Open up command prompt and you need to change your directory path to where you have all these files installed.

    9. Type "fastboot devices" to see if it recognizes your phone in fastboot mode. You will see the serial # of your phone if successful. If not, a) drivers are not installed properly or b) all the adb and fastboot files are not in the same folder.

    10. Once its recognized, type in "fastboot oem unlock" to unlock your bootloader. This will wipe your phone completely, so backup your phone.

    Then follow these instructions (taken from another thread):

    1) Reboot by typing: fastboot reboot-bootloader
    2) Optional (NOT optional for n00bs) -- Flash the bootloader: fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-maguro-primela03.img (or whatever the name of the bootloader image that you downloaded).
    3) Reboot (not required if you did not do step 5): fastboot reboot-bootloader
    4) Optional (NOT optional for n00bs) -- Flash the radio: fastboot flash radio radio-maguro-i9250xxla02.img (or whatever the name is of the radio image that you downloaded).
    5) Reboot (not required if you did not do step 7): fastboot reboot-bootloader
    6) Flash the system partition: fastboot flash system system.img
    7) Flash the data partition: fastboot flash userdata userdata.img
    8) Flash the kernel/ramdisk: fastboot flash boot boot.img
    9) Optional (NOT optional for n00bs) -- Flash the recovery partition: fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    10) Erase the cache partition: fastboot erase cache
    11) Reboot: fastboot reboot
    12) Done! The first boot will likely take quite a bit longer than you are used to, as Android builds the Dalvik cache.

    If you still need help, I could help you out provided you live in the Toronto/York Region/GTA areas heh.

    Cheers
