    How to update Android?

    Hi, I'm a Nexsus owner for one week today and know very little about it. I'm wondering how to update it. I have not rooted it. When I check the About phone option it says I have 4.0.2 When I check for update it says i'm up to date. But isn't it on 4.1 something now?

    I'm on the WIND network in Canada. Any help on how to update would be greatly appreciated.

    Wind just pushed ICS to a few phones and I know this cos my daughters are on Wind. You can either wait and see what happens or flash it to 4.04 with yakju and then do the check for updates or u can just hang in. Actually a bit impressed with how fast Wind has pushed out updates for their phones so far... not like my Rogers stuff at all

    Thanks for the reply. I called WIND and it was hard understand the guy I was talking to but I think he said I can take it to a WIND store and they will do it for me. Not sure if i'll go that route but good to know.

    Yeah that's what I was thinking, plus I called a store and the guy said I had to contact Samsung. Their customer service ain't to good.

    So my options are to wait or try and do it myself like Pinto suggested above?

    I'll reread that other post. Hopefully it isn't to complicated.

    clear your data in google services framework, then turn off your phone. take out your sim card, power it up, connect to wifi, and then check for updates through about phone.
