VZW Galaxy Nexus getting 4.2.2 (JDQ39) NOW

Got the OTA update to Android 4.2.2 on my Galaxy Nexus last night. Just a head's up for all you Nexus owners who thought you had been abandoned.

See thread here: »www.droid-life.com/2013/03/19/ve ··· d-jdq39/

Any one have any luck forcing the download? I'm impatient

Yep, I forced it night before last.

On WiFi, go to Settings->Apps->All Apps->Google Services Framework, select Force Stop, and Clear Data

Then go back to Settings->About->System Updates and check for update.

Took me several times of doing that, but it finally came through.

Thanks, I tried that before and it didn't go through. I'll keep trying now that I know that worked for someone. Although I have a custom recovery and I think I had a problem the time before last. If I have to I'll stop being lay and manually do it

I was able to get it to pop. Needed to reboot right after force stopping and clearing data. But since I have a custom recovery it doesn't validate. So now I just have to figure out the easiest way to do this w/o wiping (I don't want to deal with that if I have to)

Just checked my VZW Galaxy Nexus today and it said that it successfully updated to JDQ39 4.2.2.

My HSPA Galaxy Nexus I manually loaded 4.2.2 a few weeks ago from the Google factory takju image.

Nice!

The OTA broke bluetooth on my phone. Bluetooth just won't turn on.

It broke my Bluetooth also. Same symptom, won't turn on.

My bluetooth actually works BETTER. Before the upgrade, about 1/2 the time it would just lock up when I tried to turn on Bluetooth, requiring a reboot. Now, 100% so far at turning it on/off without incident.
