    Read the title. Read the instructions. Grabbed N7. It prompts me to dl the update. Damn it Google, I am trying to be mad at you for the N4 fiasco( didn't get 1) but this helps lol.

    My apologies....

    I did not "read" the update screen properly. The OTA was for 4.1.2....RATZ!!!

    I tried the OP's method and after about 5 times it did not work.

    What I did was almost identical to what the OP but with one minor change as some have posted:

    Did the "Force Stop"
    Did the "Clear Cache"
    HIT "Force Stop" a second time

    Searched for the update and voila! Success!

    Thanks OP for posting this up and helping us all!!!

    Keyboard, lock screen that allows widgets, my understanding is that the play store now protects against malware, and Quick Settings.... much more convenient than the old two-step method of getting to settings.

    So I have two Nexus 7's. One is a 16gb and the other is a 32gb. I did the update on my 32gb last night with no problem what soever and I love it. The 16gb however is not working. It showed that an update is needed. It downloaded and went to restart/intall and I got a android dude laying down with a red triangle sticking out of his belly. I used the method mentioned in this thread after the device restarted and I got the same thing a second time. Could it be because I have both devices synced with the same account?

    It might have been because you needed to install more updates.

    After 7-8 tries this worked and I am now in the process of updating to 4.2.
    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    I followed the steps, except after I cleared the data, I rebooted and then checked for an update and there it was! it didn't work for me the 1st time with the steps outlined above so I decided to clear the data then reboot and then check for the update.

    It's sad that people have to do a workaround just to get the OTA update.

    The same thing happened to me on my Galaxy Nexus phone. It was 100% stock, except I had it rooted. It turned out I had to set it back to its out-of-box condition, including not rooted. Then the 4.2 update went right through. It seems the android laying down with the red triangle indicates an aborted installation.

    I'm curious; did anyone else successfully install the 4.2 update OTA while rooted? When mine updated from 4.1.1 to 4.1.2 it was rooted. It seems that update was more minor though.

    Nexus running 4.2, Nexus 4 16GB successfully ordered yesterday, life is good!

    Not really. It's been said somewhere else that Google does a slow rollout of OTA's, to make sure there aren't any major issues.

    I believe it's just the date it always shows after clearing the Framework Data. Not sure the reason why.
