    I've been trying to get the 4.3 OTA since it appeared in the ASOP. I was finally able to "force" the OTA by following these simple instructions:

    1. Go to Settings > Apps > All Apps

    2. Find the Google Services Framework

    3. Force Stop the app and then clear the data.

    4. Go to Settings > About Tablet > System Update

    5. The date should now show 12/31/1969 or something like that from 1969.

    6. Check for the update.

    I had to do this step 6 times, but it finally worked.



    Good Luck!

    Just a quick FYI....after the update, I could not update or install any apps from the Google Play Store. After an hour or so of frustration and searching the web for a solution, I contacted Google and spoke to "Audrey" and got this solution.

    Delete your Google account: Settings > Under Accounts, select Google > Select your account > three vertical dots at the top right > Remove account (if you have multiple accounts, delete them all).

    Go to Settings > Apps > All Apps > Google Play Store
    Clear the data and cache

    Re-add your Google account and downloads from the Play Store should now work.

    Or you can simply uninstall Google Play updates. After that, updates will automatically reinstall and when you open Google Play next time you have to agree with Terms and Conditions again. Then allow it 1-2 hours and your device will be available online again.

    I think it really depends on your location. They are releasing the update progressively and geographic location sure is a criteria.

    Tried this on my Galaxy Nexus and it worked, took 3 tries and now it's downloading. Thanks!

    Note I'm in NYC. Bought my GN about 3 weeks after it was released on the GPS.

    My wife uses a GSM Galaxy Nexus, and her update came through yesterday. She didn't do anything, not even check for updates. We live near Philadelphia, PA. I, however, am still waiting for the update on my Nexus 4.

    I have a Gnex (Google IO 2012) in Colorado. Just got the push a few minutes ago. Didnt have to do anything special. I got tired of hitting update last week.
