    Quick question...

    If I use the method in post #2, will the JB update still get pushed to my phone by Sprint?

    This question has been asked and addressed at least a dozen times in this thread

    Recovery does not read sdcards formatted with the exfat file system. While the phone itself will. Since you have to go into recovery, if your card is formatted with the exfat file system, the card won't be found.

    You will have to reformat your sdcard to the fat32 file system. The instruction and the program to use is scattered all throughout this thread. I would find it for you but am currently at work. I will look for it on break in about 50 minutes and will edit this post with that information.
    I found your earlier post regarding how to reformat the sd card. I am in the EaseUS Partition Master program and am not sure how to get the SD card reformatted. Do I need to 'Wipe disk'? Not sure how to proceed...

    No, it will not get pushed to your phone because the method in post #2 gives you the Official update. It's just that you'll update manually rather than OTA. The Sprint network will recognize that your phone already has the update and that it is already up to date. After you use the post #2 method for the update, you can go to Settings>About device to verify everything.

    Got the update to JB installed - a big thanks to Skunkape60 for your help!

    Is there a way to verify that my SD card is indeed formatted to FAT32?

    If recovery read the file from the external sdcard, then you have the fat32 file system on it.

    Well, that settles that! Thanks again. I see that Google Search wants to be updated right away after the JB update. Is there any reason NOT to update it? Will I again lose the ability to search my contacts, etc.? If so, can I just install the apk like before?

    After doing the manual update from post #2 in this thread earlier today, I get a pop-up message just now, 'Attention: Unable to find software on your PC that can recognize your device. Service pack 3, Windows Media Player, version 10 or higher, for Windows XP or Android File Transfer for Mac OS must be installed. You can download and install PC Kies from http://forums.androidcentral.com/e?l...token=L7bAajFk in order to sync data with your device, back up data, and upgrade your device (Windows and Mac OS are supported)' My laptop is running Windows 7.
    Any idea on why I am seeing this??

    Ok, so I got the OTA update and pressed install. The install failed, so I went ahead and downloaded the file (post 2) and went to update that way. I got the following error, What does this mean?

    The phone is stock current on 4.0.4

    Thanks

    It's telling you that your not as stock as you thought. It's saying your system files don't match what is supposed to be there.

    Your only options at this point are to take your phone to Sprint or to use method in post #3

    Most likely the guy that had it before you removed some bloatware. Then unrooted before selling it.

    Actually my phone did the same thing. Got the notification over the weekend and tried doing the ota. It started to show an update then stopped. No modifications at all. It's not rooted. Now it says that there is not an update available. huh? Personally, I need the phone more than the update.

    I installed this from post #2.
    Is this the same as the OTA that will come out?
    I can't get Google Now to open with swiping up. Anyone know how to fix this?
    Or, point me to the right place?
    Thanks!

    I don't think it's even supposed to do that. That sounds more like a launcher setup option you would need to setup.

    According to Android - Android 4.1, Jelly Bean

    "Get to Google Search faster: Google Search can be opened directly from the lock screen by swiping up. For devices with software navigation keys, you can now swipe up from the system bar to quickly access Google Search with Google Now. For devices with a hardware search key, you can tap it to launch Google Search. "

    Correct this phone has a hardware search key. Press and hold the settings button. Which is the gs3 hardware search button.

    If you have the shortcuts on the lock screen. You can Swype up on the g icon and open it but not from the home screen.

    Thanks for the replies. Just everything I had read and all videos about GN, all have said "simply swipe up from any screen to access it" or something close to that. I added it to my lockscreen icons. I had previously replaced it with s-search or whatever it was called.
    I am happy enough now with the hold menu button and icon on my lockscreen.
    I guess that photo sphere gimmick doesn't come until 4.2? I couldn't wait to try that and now I don't even have it :{

    Long hold on the menu key to open Google Now is working. Only downside is that my Swiftkey 3 keyboard opens automatically and covers the Google Now cards.

    Just wanted to say thanks for these files. I used it to upgrade my phone last month and despite my patents buying their phones together just 2 days ago, my moms phone got the JB update while my dads hadn't yet. He's thrilled I updated it for him.
