In addition, the tablet also comes to the role of multi-user support that has brought so many good reviews.

The Update is available for all Galaxy Nexus and in the world, however, depending on the area where we find the update may not come yet OTA (over the air) so we could make it so manuela, which is relatively easy for experienced Android users. If you do not have experience in this kind of procedures, recommend wait for the update via OTA or otherwise seek help from someone that does have it.

The steps to perform this update manually are:

  • We must have Android version 4.1.2 installed on the device.
  • You need to have the Android SDK installed on your computer and device drivers.
  1. Download the version of Android 4.2 (JOP40C) for the Galaxy Nexus or the version of Android 4.2 (JOP40C) for the Nexus 7 .
  2. Save the file. ZIP you downloaded to a folder called Platform-tools located in the Android SDK.
  3. Connect the device to the computer, then shut it off.
  4. We light the Nexus Bootloader mode. This is possible by pressing the Volume Up, Volume Down and Power simultaneously.
  5. We access the recovery mode from this screen Scrolling with the volume keys and select with the power button.
  6. At this time we will be displayed as an exclamation point warning, there must press the Volume Up and Power buttons simultaneously.
  7. On the next screen select the “Apply update from adb”.
  8. In the command window or terminal computer (console, for some) wrote the following statement, which consists of the command “adb sideload” next to the name of the package you downloaded. A role model is in the case of the Nexus 7 would write the following in the terminal:
      adb sideload

Following this procedure will update the device, and finally we restart our Nexus and begin to enjoy the benefits of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. If you have no rush to have this version, you just have to wait a few hours or at most a couple of days (while your terminal is not purchased through an operator) to get the update via OTA.
