Trouble updating to Jelly Bean 4.1.2

  Phil Ocifer 18:59 08 Dec 12

Hi, I got a Nexus 7 32GB last month - I've now had at least 3 notifications and failed attempts at updating Jelly Bean from 4.1.1 to 4.1.2 and wondered if anyone else has the same or knows of any reason why it fails?

Perhaps it's down to a certain program installed?

Any hints and tips or good Android or Nexus 7 website links appreciated.

Thanks Phil

You might do better in the mobile forum.

Have you tried through Samsung Kies?

Does Kies work with a Nexus?

Is PCA playing up?

Have posted a reply twice and both haven't appeared.

I noticed last night that they were under spam attack again.

They may have gone into super-protective mode.

There was a link in it so you might be right.

What I said was ( without links):

Got my Nexus 2 weeks ago and it has updated OK.

Very pleased with it.

Android Central Forums have one for the Nexus.

I can recommend the Boat Browser free from the store. Very user friendly and easy to add bookmarks.

Dice Player ( from store) will play almost all video formats without having to convert them first

to mp4.

Also got a case and stylus for it under £5 from ebay.

Hmmm . . to the respondent with no name :) I guess it may be muddypaws but it only shows an envelope here :)

I have just been to HMV and their display model is on 4.1.2. I don't see much point asking the staff as it's all virtually automatic.

Thanks for the note about the forum - I've just taken a quick look and guess I may be there for some hours :)

morddwyd - I think you refer to the "Mobile Phones" forum - well the Nexus 7 is not a phone - although I guess it's like a mobile phone just without the simcard. Shame there isn't a smartphone or tablet forum (yet)!! And seeing as there isn't a laptop or desktop forum I guess all the tech issues can go into Technical.

Anyhow, update not resolved yet so I'll keep looking. Cheers
