    Ok, 4.2.2 came out last week and I still hadn't got it.
    Not the end of the world, but seeing as I know others have got it (in the same area, without even having a SIM in) then I wanted to make sure it would actually work.

    All the searching I did resulted in advice about going into recovery and manually installing it.

    However, I found there's a much easier method.

    Firstly - you need to be on Wifi. It's wifi only until the 19th Feb.
    I wasn't so I got around this my making my work phone a hotspot. Just borrow somebody elses mobile data :P

    Anyway, you can force it to do the OTA update by simply going to Settings, Apps, All Apps, Google Framework Services.
    Hit Force Stop. Then Hit Clear Data.

    This will remove the previous data about updates.

    Got to Settings, About Phone, System Updates. Hit Check Now.

    It'll now actually see the update and download.

    Hope this helps.

    Really? I looked and looked and couldn't find it.
    All I could find was info about 'sideloading'? and updating via USB.

    Worked for me first try. Was getting frustrated that I still didn't have update last night so gave it a shot.

    Thanks for pointing this out, on the Google Services Framework if you uncheck "Show Notifications" the notification to install the pesky update for 4.2.2 disappears.. this was what I was looking for so that I don't click on the update to 4.2.2 by mistake.
    I'm one of the few that does not want to update my Nexus 4 to this lastest version yet. I'm happy with 4.2.1

    THANK YOU! I'm convinced that *not* updating to 4.2.1 has been making my normally stable phone do very strange things. And in defense of the OP, because of the way the forums are divided, ie by carrier/phone/tablet, it makes since that he wouldn't have seen the postings in the Google Galaxy Nexus phone forum (or where ever), if he/she doesn't have one. As such, I'm copying your useful post about getting rid of the notification in one of the various Sprint Galaxy Nexus 4.2.1 threads.

    Sheaf,

    Thank you so much! I also did not know about this, despite considerable searching. It worked like a charm, and I am very grateful to you for taking the time to share this with others! Hats off!

    This thread is regarding Nexus 4, which isn't on Verizon's network...so no, Verizon will never release an update for a phone that doesn't work on its network.

    It didn't work. The notification in the notification area doesn't pop up, but the notice on the screen still does. Maybe Google Framework has to be disabled altogether. Would that mess up anything else?

    This worked for me, though I had to go clear the services data twice to get it to come through.

    Now that I've done that, what did clearing that data mess up?

    Still works on 2/19. Think my problem was not checking for update via wifi. And for the record this is the first notice I have seen to use that!

    You might see some errors on shutdown complaining about play store credentials but everything still works. At least that's what I see on my Galaxy Nexus. I just wait on my other devices now. It's only a few days...

    Worked for me, too. Thanks! My son's N4 already got the update, so I was wondering, and feelin' a little left out... ;-)

    I've seen nothing about it in the N4-specific forums. Even though Starter didn't mean to offend, his post was unnecessary, and inconsiderate.

    Furthermore, it seems to me that one would always want to have the latest updates, unless they are using a device for development for a specific version, but even then, testing on the latest OS version would be wise, too. Oh, well, to each his own.,
