    I had this problem as well and not working for me either after 4 tries. Any solutions known? Thanks.

    Update: It worked after trying again. It took 4 times to get it working, but I'm currently downloading those beautiful 80.6 MB's. There is a problem with google play store but it syncs after a while and things are all good. Thanks OP.

    Yep, just give it an hour or so, and the play store will be back to normal.

    got the update on the first try but on restart it failed to finish the install , it took me to the recovery icon (droid icon with red triangle ), was not working after that then I charged the battery to 80 and tried the method and got the update again but the install failed again . it's it because of the root ? Anyone had success in the rooted device ? Using stock recovery.

    Nice one, it's worked for me on the second attempt. Mine said "last updated 1/1/1970" before it found the update.
    I'm in the UK.
    Gonna have a play now, the apps in my drawer are a lot smaller!

    Here's the trick:

    1. Go to Settings -> Apps -> All

    2. Find Google Services Framework.

    3. Tap on Force Stop.

    4. Select Clear Data.

    5. Head back to the Nexus 7′s Settings, go to About, and check for a System Update.

    Post your success stories below.

    EDIT: If it doesn't work the first time, try again. It seems to work on the second try for some people.
    I've been trying this for the longest time, but I never did the "Force Stop" step first, just "Clear Data". Once I did the steps as you posted, BINGO, update coming!

    Thank you!!!

    I waited for the 4.1.2 update and it came very late for me. The 4.2 update came yesterday without doing any tricks.

    Working great!


    Interestingly, the lock screen widgets were disabled when I accepted the Exchange Active Sync security stuff from my Corp server.

    I can confirm what someone else posted... That if you can't get it to download, then force stop, delete data and force stop again. That's what got it to download for me.

    It worked for me but after 4 try's and no dice I changed it up a bit and cleared data first then forced stop the frame work services. Then checked for system updates and it worked. Dont know if that made the difference or not but who cares I got 4.2 now on my N7 32gig.

    Thanks it worked on the 5th time. When I went into About and hit "Check for Updates" it always showed 12/31/1969 and then on the 5th try I got the update screen. Great I have a Miracast PTV3000 that has been waiting on that 4.2 update.

    I just purchased a Nexus 7 16 GB for the family and I must say I love it thus far

    Still trying to work out some bugs but only after about 5 minutes of turning it on ..... Update came OTA for it! Kind of glad it came out right away on the new purchase as I will only now have to get used to 4.2!!!

    Worked.. By clearing data first then force stop it works. So far I really like the key board and notification trays, haven't tried much else yet.

    Took me about 500 tries for it to finally download. Now Dolphin web browser doesn't work. I've reinstalled it but it still does not work. Advice?

    Seriously, I tried probably 20-25 times exactly following the instructions from the OP. Finally it worked and all is well except Dolphin keeps crashing no matter what I do to fix it. I may have to wait for an update from Dolphin. Anyone else have this problem?

    Question, other than the keyboard enhancement, what other noticeable improvements were made? I don't see very many changes other than some minor and insignificant changes.
