Can't update my galaxy nexus :(
Hi. I'm a new android user. Bought a Samsung Galaxy nexus. I tried to install the OTA 4.0.4 update and this image came up. I had to remove the battery to exit. Since then, whenever I try to update, the same thing comes up and it doesn't update. Ultimately, I want to upgrade to Jelly bean please tell me what to do...

That looks like the stock recovery screen. My solution would involve unlocking the bootloader and flashing a custom recovery...but my guess is you don't want to do that. (If you do, more power to ya!)
Otherwise, so long as you haven't done anything to compromise your phone or warranty, I'd suggest calling the Nexus support line at 1-855-83-NEXUS.
There may very well be a simpler solution that I'm not considering...but I'm afraid I haven't taken an official OTA upgrade in years so I won't be of much help there

Re: Can't update my galaxy nexus :(
if you know the basic command prompt stuffs you can do it easily.
1. Install sdk from here and you need jdk from here
use x86 or 64 depending on your PC. First install JDK
2. run installed SDK from step 1 and install USB drivers and platform tools from within SDK..
uncheck all others if not mentioned.(make sure you keep a note of the path you installed sdk)
step 1 and 2 above are explained here
you have to follow part 1 and part 2 in the link to do step 1 and 2 above
In the link part 1- step 2,3 and 6 might not be applicable.. it differ depending on what you download for sdk. exe install or zip install. I recommend exe setup.
3. download factory image from this link
4.1.1 is jelly bean. and look for your device galaxy nexus.
4. Now follow this link
in this link "how to install" is what you finished above.
start from "On windows:"
step 1 is talking about downloaded factory image file in step 3()
copy the ecxtracted files (two times with 7zip) on android-sdk/platform-tools/ (this is important, if you dont unzip it, dont complain about "radio couldnt be loaded")
do till 4A and you are done. Reboot your phone and disconnect the USB.
report back how it went.
NOTE: the link i gave is for Nexus S but the steps are the same. do 4A carefully because the name will change.
