Upgrading from Android 4.1.1 to 4.2 on Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I am unable to upgrade from 4.1.1 to 4.2 through the phone.  Is this something that Rogers is restricting?  Is it possible to upgrade through Google Play?

 

Any suggestions to get to 4.2?  Does it involve hacking the phone?

 

Thanks,

Hello jrudner

Rogers is not blocking anything. This is all Samsung here. They provide the update for the Galaxy Nexus. Google play only has apps, games & Movies. It does NOT have software / firmware for the device.. You can just root your device & install a ROM that has 4.2 on it BUT please watch a few videos & read more about rooting before doing this.

Hi, thanks for your reply.

 

Is it easy to install Android 4.2 manually?  is there a chance I brick my phone?

 

Thanks,

Short Answer, unless you are willing to deal with bugs and instability, you should not try and root your phone.
If you need the latest Android OS, consider buying a Google Nexus phone.
