It’s been a loooooong wait and Samsung has certainly been a major factor in the reason behind the wait, but it appears the wait is nearly over for Vodafone Galaxy Nexus owners with this weeks latest software update blog advising that the upgrade from Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.04) to Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.2) is ‘Approved, awaiting roll out by Google’.
To prompt your phone to check for a software update you can go to Settings > About Phone > Software Update > Check now for update. The rollout hasn’t begun as yet as far as we know and even when the rollout does commence it is generally done in stages over the course of a week or so.
In terms of the other carriers, Optus is apparently still waiting for the update to begin their testing with their update page advising : ‘Manufacturer to provide version for testing’.
Telstra has advised today that the ‘Jelly Bean update for the Galaxy Nexus has been received and is in test.’
So, if you own a Vodafone Galaxy Nexus and have left it stock, let us know in the comments as soon as you see that update notification.
