    How do you get to your /android-sdk-macosx/platform-tools/ folder
    Got it working using Mac OSX.

    Pretty much the same procedure, get into recovery, select 'update from ADB'.

    In a terminal, get to your /android-sdk-macosx/platform-tools/ folder, then issue ./adb sideload c5ea6e959840.update_mysidspr_FH05_to_GA02.zip (give the zip is in the same folder as adb)

    I did not even use a PC to complete this task. I simply downloaded the OTA zip file, installed clockworkmod app, used clockworkmod to flash the update. All with leaving my bootloader unlocked, and keeping root access once completed. Finally, being able to do this all without a PC is great! Love the little updates that came along with 4.2 on Sprint Galaxy Nexus!

    Question for anyone who has installed the 4.2 update - does it enable MAP support on the bluetooth radio? (to allow the paired device - car stereo - to read the SMS (or Email) messages out loud on the paired device?)

    Did you need to do a data wipe going from OTA? That's the biggest thing I want to avoid.

    Not sure of any 'need', but I did not perform any kind of data wipe. Using the link, from the phone, i downloaded the update zip. Opened up the free app 'Rom Manager', and used clockworkmod to point to directory of zip file. It then rebooted into necessary elements, began processing the update as if it was OTA from the get go. Right before it finished, it recognized i was unlocked, and rooted, and asked to save those settings. Then it booted up just fine with all the new 4.2 enhancements.

    Worked great. Kept boot loader unlocked, and root intact.

    Has anyone been experiencing any problems? Like random reboots, system freezes, wake lock issues...etc. Have had all those so far.

    Been running this since yesterday afternoon and it's flawless. Only problem I had was with an app that just don't work on 4.2, as I know because it doesn't work on my Nexus 10 either.

    Hi tommyjoesanders,
    I am stuck with the FC12 Radio, and I see you have helped a few other users here. Do you think you can point me in the right direction too? I have some basic knowledge of flashing, and tried to go back to stock using the Gnex toolkit, but I still get the same Radios. when I try to apply the update (OTA or forced) it fails because of the radios.

    Help me obiwan kenobi, you are my only hope .... out of 4.1.1 lol

    Yes , your going to have problems until you flash the FH05 radios . thats why the update.zip will not accept . I would use ODIN too flash the GA02. this tool will flash the firmware and radios for it. If you will give a few mins I will send you private pm on how too do this.

    I'm kinda surprised this isn't OTA yet. How long does it take to push the update out OTA after release?
    So... Looks like the OTA finally showed up about 3 weeks after the update.zip was released.

    Cool. I'm just thrilled to get updates in general. As long as I'm on Android, I will never again buy a retail phone. Either updates take like 2 years to show up (htc thunderbolt anyone?) or they never happen at all, even though the phone is hardware capable.

    Just finished returning my GNex to stock using WFresh and the OTA for 4.2 starts downloading. However, once finished and tries to install, a android with a orange triangle appears and I have to pull the battery to get it to start again. I've done this twice now. Anyone with a clue why this is happening? Thanks.
