i have a galaxy nexus which seems "stuck" on 4.2.1
i'm on AT&T, i've tried to force the update by the method described on other threads here, and i've tried multiple times, no success.
any ideas ??:(

Did you get the phone from AT&T? If so, contact them. They control the updates.....
There was no Galaxy Nexus from At&t...The updates come from Google.

To the OP is it possible your phone isn't stock? Rooted perhaps? In which case you wouldn't receive OTA's.

How did you make out Jay? If you want to see if you have recovery on it. Turn the phone off, then hold power and both the up/down volume buttons until it gets to recovery. You can look through the menus and see if there may be a custom ROM on it.

OP, you'll have to check if it's a yakju or takju variant. These are the true Google versions, and should recieve all updates directly from Google. The samsung galaxy Nexus versions sold in Canada (and possibly elsewhere) are Yakjuux and recieve updates through the carrier.

Mine was originally a yakjuux on Rogers (Canada) which I converted to Yakju. It has recieved several updates that I wouldn't have gotten if it was still stock.. Might be something to look into if you're still having trouble
