If you do this update and have lobe security app job will crash. Uninstall lbe before you do the update. I posted a topic on it.

I had voodoo installed which let me recover my root
The phone was rooted before and it worked fine. My phone was bought from Google though. Unfortunately I had lobe privacy app which when activated cause my phone to continually reboot. Had to go into fast boot to restore it. Wiped out all my data. Thankfully everything was backed up.

You Rock

Finally got my Nexus to start downloading Jelly Bean after 3 days of nonstop tapping the check now. Follow these steps an you will be using the buttery goodness like me.

-Go into Setting -> Apps -> All -> Google Services Framework
-You will see a button for “Clear Data”; clear it.
-Go into your dialer and type *#*#2432546#*#* - This will cause a ‘force checkin’. You will notice that it shows “checkin succeeded” across the top.
Go back to Setting -> About Phone -> System updates and then click the check now button.

YOU HAVE TO BE ON WIFI TO DOWNLOAD UPDATE!!!

Hit the thanks button if it helps!!!! Best of luck!
I swear you guys rock ! From Rooting to this now? love this site.. Igoogle charged me 3 nexus sold one to my friend was very upset dude got jelly bean before me !. THANKS KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK

One question :

For this update does stock need to be unrooted and bootloader lock?

My nexus is on stock 4.0.4 rooted and bootloader unlock. When I done force update I get update 4.1. After downloading and reboot i get 2 error - E: signature failer and something more. Then I done reboot from ClockMod recovery and get in 4.0.4

What to do?

Are there any risks to your phone force stopping and clearing the google framework thing?

I know this is probably my imagination, but one day with my Galaxy GSM (international), I woke up to it saying it "Encryption Unsuccessful" which bricked my GN. After many failed attempts at reflashing stock, etc., I picked up a Nexus from the Google Play store so I have stock Takju, unrooted, untampered.

Anyway, my point is, I can't help but feel clearing the framework might have caused that "Encryption Unsuccessful" issue? Please tell me I'm wrong.

So, I was trying with the force close, clear cache, system update cycle since morning but nothing happened. I just now tried doing the *#*#2432546#*#* force checkin trick and it worked. I have the Jelly Bean updating as I type :)

Thanks

You can be rooted with unlocked bootloader, but must have stock recovery. So your problem would be you're trying to update with CWR. Either use the ROM by bigxie, or restore factory recovery img.

this will sound stupid, please bear with me

Yeah, so i got this yakjuzs IMM76K samsung-maguro Galaxy Nexus v4.0.4...

let me just say that i freaking envy you guys. i wish i could get the same JB update within July (or August at most), but I have little faith with Samsung. My GT 8.9 has been promised an update so many times, i don't think i can trust Samsung anymore with mine.

i've read a lot of articles unlocking my GN then update my version to an IMM76I to get the update. is this the right step?

I've always loved you but I didn't knew it until the moment I found this post! :)

Now I can test stock Jelly Bean for some time until I get confortable with unlock by bootloader and root my new Gxus.

Thank you so much!

download the nexus tool kit, use it to download the offical rom, flash it then just wait, 20 mins for the 4.0.4 update and another 2-3 hours for 4.1.1, it seems the OTA download silently in the background and ONLY display the uopdate box when it comes to time to install
