Android 4.1 Jelly Bean official for Verizon Galaxy Nexus

Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is officially ready for the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus, according to the nation’s largest wireless carrier.  A support page (PDF) has gone live for the update, detailing some of the new and awesome features such as Google Now and enhanced notifications. Once you (finally) download and install the JR0030 you’ll be as current as things can be!

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Upgrades to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

The Galaxy Nexus by Samsung is the first smartphone on the Verizon Wireless network to be upgraded to the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system (OS). For a limited time, the software upgrade will be pushed out in phases over Wi-Fi only.

Customers can check if the software is available for their device by going to Settings > About Phone > System Updates. If the upgrade is available, a notification will be displayed and customers will need to connect to a Wi-Fi network to complete the download.

Jelly Bean is the newest Android OS and offers advanced functionality and new features like Google Now that feeds relevant information to a device based on time and location. With Google Now, a person standing on a train platform may receive information about when a specific train is arriving and if there are delays.

Jelly Bean’s smarter keyword feature makes text messaging faster by predicting the next word in a sentence, and improved speech-to-text technology and voice technology continues to work even if a data connection is interrupted.

The interface on Jelly Bean is also the most responsive Android OS to date. Customers can interact with messages, photos, emails and event details from the notification screen, allowing them to directly access important information without navigating their phone.

Additional information on the Jelly Bean upgrade can be found on the Galaxy Nexus by Samsung support page.

    I got it. Just go to Google Service Framework in apps window. Then clear data but don’t Force close. Then check for updates. Worked for me.
