    It shows, (1969), only as a date so far back that all should know no updates or any Android anything was happening at that time back in, (1969), not really, {strange, strange, strange}, at all, and its the, only date that is being referenced.

    Worked on first try. Surprised it did, since it didn't work with the 4.1.2 OTA. Thanks!

    Enough of this trying to be patient and wait for the OTA to just push itself.

    Just started to update after the 2nd try clearing the framework data. Thanks!

    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.
    What's up with that, anyway?!? Mine said 12/31/1969. I'm in the US.

    Apparently Asus/Google had these on the shelf for a long, long time before letting them out in the wild.

    1/1/1970 GMT is the UNIX Epoch (when the kernel became self aware )

    "ctime" is often used in ###ix operating systems to calculate the current date by sorting out how many seconds since the Epoch (midnight on the 1st) have elapsed. Using a single ten digit integer simplifies the heck out of date/time calculations.

    Took me about 7x but it works. For me I kept hitting the "check now" button right away. Just wait a minute before hitting the button and see if it works for you as it did me. Good luck! And thanks for the info! :-)

    This works for many people but may not work for all. This trick was posted on gottabemobile website.
    Nexus 7 Android 4.2 Jelly Bean Update Rolling Out Slowly

    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.
    So I have been trying to no avail to update my Nexus 7. I have gotten it to start updating about 8 times now and each time about 1/3 of the way through the installation process it aborts (red triangle thingy). I have never rooted or unlocked this device. It did just come back from Asus though because the screen was cracked and they replaced it. The current software it is running is 4.1.2 and Kernal 3.1.10-g55eddff (whatever the hell that means). I have reset to factory settings 5 times now and restarted the device numerous times and in all with the 8 or so attempts at installing 4.2 there has been no success or changes in the process. Does anyone have any ideas? I really do not want to send this thing back to Asus for another 1.5 weeks.

    I got it figured out. I ended up having to unlock the device and flash 4.1.1 back on to it. After that I was able to get the OTA updates up to 4.2. What a pain...but now i want to root both of them along with my new Galaxy Nexus coming Tuesday.

    This also worked for me. As others report, two tries seems to do it.

    Hello from Sweden,

    I got my nexus 7 yesterday, I never use custom ROMs etc, I try to update and I get the same issue as Jon_Cox, nexus 7 refuses to install from 4.1.2 to 4.2, I get an Android and a red triangle when the installation reaches about the 1/3.

    I tried it more than 20 times! Hard resets, wipe all data, everything, should I return the tablet?

    Did anyone manage to solve it?

    Thanks in advance!

    My N7 is rooted, and this doesn't work for me either. Get the same green android with red triangle on reboot as posted above.
    I and the same when it picked up the update directly.

    Without unrooting, anyone found a solution?

    That will install 4.2.1, which is an update to 4.2.

    Still nothing in NJ for 4.2.1

    Tried doing this the other day to try and push the 4.2.1 update and nothing, did it again this morning and nothing yet!

    4.2 at least is already installed
