The Galaxy Nexus with Vodafone has surely taken its time to make the OS version jump from Ice Cream Sandwich to Jelly Bean. If you’ve got a Galaxy Nexus from Vodafone then now is the time to get a little happier – you’ve got an OS upgrade awaiting you.
You know the drill – head over to the Settings -> About -> Software Update -> Check Now and see if it has rolled out to your phone yet. There’s no mention of a trickle system, so we can expect all eligible phones to have the update ready.
The update brings smoothness in the form of Project Butter and an unparalleled form of pushing relevant information with Google Now.

We’ve received a tip from a regular reader that the Android 4.2.1 update has rolled out to their Galaxy Nexus. The update mostly provides a few fixes for the the somewhat laggy nature of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It doesn’t come with too much under the hood but will be a nice addition to your already lovely updated Galaxy Nexus.
You know the drill. Head over to Settings -> About -> Software Update -> Check Now.
The update hasn’t come through yet for myself yet, but it will likely come through in the coming week. Let us know if you get the update and how it goes below!
Before I start writing – if you bought a Galaxy Nexus from any of the Australian carriers then this update is not for you, sorry. You’ll have to wait for all the submissions, testing, etc. which will probably not come for a very long time seeing as though the GNex in Australia has still not been updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
For those of you who are lucky enough to have bought your phone from elsewhere, it’s likely you’re holding onto an international Galaxy Nexus (yakju). This is the unlocked international GNex that was not purchased from the Google Play Store.
It has been reported by Android Police that users who have the yakju variant of the Galaxy Nexus …
Well, what do you know. Things have been fairly quiet on the Jelly Bean update cycle and no one really knew if some of Samsung’s major phones would get the update or not. It turns out that Samsung’s flagship phones of 2011 will in fact be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. That is the Galaxy Note and the Galaxy S II. Oh, and, the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 will also be getting a little sweet Jelly Bean treatment.
For those of you who are still keen to hold onto your older phones rather than updating – this is great news! We’re not sure when to expect the updates, but Samsung is preparing the update for submission to Vodafone to …
Vodafone made a tweet today letting us know a bit more information about the Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Nexus. It appears that Samsung is no longer working to submit the Android 4.1.1 update, but rather an update to 4.1.2. Here’s the tweet:

Android 4.1.2 only started rolling out to international versions of the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 and Nexus S (as well as the Voda version of the Nexus S) over the last week. Samsung has even yesterday submitted the Jelly Bean update to Vodafone …
Got yourself a Galaxy Nexus or Nexus S from an international outlet? Well, the Android 4.1.2 update that started rolling out to the Nexus 7 last week is now available for international variants of the Galaxy Nexus or Nexus S. If you bought your Nexus from an international retailer and it is updated by Google then the update should be starting to roll out now.
My personal Galaxy Nexus (and Nexus 7) received the update today, meaning that the roll-outs have begun! The update includes a few bug fixes and the ability to use the device in landscape mode.
You know the drill – head over to the Settings -> About -> System Update -> Check Now. If the update …
HTC, Samsung to submit Jelly Bean updates to Telstra for One XL, One S, SGS3, Galaxy Nexus end of October
We all love Jelly Bean, don’t we. Well, four of the major phones from Telstra that we already knew were in line to receive some sweet Jelly are getting a bit closer to that fanciful moment. Telstra has updated its community support page to let us all know of the upcoming updates.
It appears as though HTC, Samsung and Google’s flagship phones are getting closer to an update, with the OEMs all expected to give Telstra their update software by the end of October. Take note that this is only the first software submission, with the likely possibility of the need for further editions. If there are, however, no hiccups then we may see some Jelly Bean updates rolling in …
Samsung has today released a statement (via the Vodafone blog) releasing some very interesting information about the Galaxy Nexus. As we all know, the Galaxy Nexus on Australian carriers has not yet received the update to Jelly Bean, while the Nexus S has (on Vodafone) and the international Galaxy Nexus is enjoying the sweetness of Jelly Bean.
As such, Samsung has listened to the Australian public’s words and has addressed the issue of the Galaxy Nexus problem, somewhat. Unfortunately, Sammy has really not said too much besides for the fact that they are working on it. Here’s the quote -
Samsung are working as quickly as possible to address Australian market specific issues for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. We will
Yesterday we reported about the Nexus 7′s impending update to Android 4.1.2 – a minor update in the Jelly Bean line. For many (including myself) the update has not yet rolled out to their devices. Do not fear, it will come.
If you’re one to tinker with your device and want to get the update yourself then Google has released the factory images for the Galaxy Nexus (takju, maguro) and the Nexus 7 (nakasi). If you’re interested in flashing the version for yourself then head over to the source link below (Google) to grab the images. Enjoy!

Update: I haven’t checked inside every store, but the one’s that I’ve been to (Melbourne CBD) have been out of stock or close to it.
Now that two months had passed I decided to check out what Australia’s other carriers had been doing. I checked Vodafone, Optus, Telechoice, Virgin Mobile, Crazy John’s, Dodo, Boost, Red Bull Mobile and others.
To my astonishment no Australian carriers are selling the Galaxy Nexus anymore, meaning it is almost impossible to have the Nexus on a plan. This is quite …
We could be seeing a radical change to the “Nexus” line of devices, just in case the release of the Nexus 7 tablet and the Nexus Q wasn’t change enough for you. A leaked roadmap of upcoming devices for the Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo was released on Japanese site Android Noodles, and there’s a few gems buried in the list.
Among the upcoming devices listed are a Galaxy Nexus II, an LG Optimus Nexus and a Sony Xperia Nexus. If correct this could indicate a complete rethink of the Nexus phone line. Rather than one phone a year being made by a manufacturer chosen by Google, each major manufacturer could have their own Nexus device. We would expect each …
