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.
Tnx a lot! Can you plz send me on PM how to flash stock recovery and are you 100% shore that's problem and not root and unlock BL

jelly bean not booting up

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!

Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus success on first attempt. Was on rooted stock ICS 4.0.4. Make sure you are connected to Wifi and I had it on the charger. I would recommend this easier method over the link in previous post. Get cha some JB!

Im in Chicago and Sprint toroplus of course.
I went back to stock ROM with recovery and locked. I immediately got the update to FG01 as I was on FD12, but have not received the update to 4.1 with newer radios. I tried all the clearing framework tricks and forcing checkins but no go any ideas ? I do want the factory radios and images Im not a fan of leaked radios due to past issues Thanks for any help

I was able to force the update. All I had to do was clear google framework data only (never stop it). Then checked for the update and was able to get it. It took a few tries but got it.

I only had to clear data for Google services framework, then i with to settings>about phone > system updates. no dial padding required.

Question?......If i do this on my rooted gs2 running AOKP JB 4.1.1(which i read was possible and done) - this will obviously make me loose root, correct? if so, is there a way to re-root? If so, can someone share the link or tell me how I can do this on my gs2 safely. I love the JB quikness but not at the expense of loosing my paid (root) apps and free wifi tethering.... which i definately need and so far non of the wifi tether apps are working on the JB roms. any help and/or knowledge would be greatly appriciated, thanks - Stiffler
