    Default How to force ICS update on VZW

    I'm not going to take credit for these instructions, but they have been floating around the Interwebs for a while now.

    Step 1. goto settings, manage applications, select all and find Google Services Framework.
    Step 2. Clear all data and force stop.
    Step 3. Check for updates .

    You may have to do this 3 or more times in a row, but it seems to work.

    I just got ICS by doing this today!!!

    Good luck and have fun

    I had this issue on my G Nexus too. (As far as I can tell, this may work on all Android devices waiting for a pending update) On the 1st day I tried it would not let do it no matter how many times I tried, but the next moring it took 3 times to work. Give it a try in the mornng.

    I can't believe it worked. I thought for sure this was a hoax. I tried it about ten times tethered to my phone without success. As soon as I untethered and tried over 4G, it worked the first time. I don't know if it was a fluke, I'm just glad it worked!

    Thanks for a great tip

    I thought the same thing as you when I saw this posted for updating the VZW G Nexus last week. I tried like 50 times without luck. The next morning it worked on 3rd try.

    I'm glad I could help you out.

    I'm normally not a pessimist, but I have two questions.

    1. What if it doesn't work?
    2. If successful, will you remain able for future OTA Upgrades (now that's optimusm)?

    Had to go back to stock after using TeamEOS for awhile, but it worked (8 tries)! Thanks for the heads up on the Google services framework trick!
