ubergeeknz: FINALLY available for yakju OTA. Was just about to go back to takju. Applying now!!

edit: Whoa, snazzy lock screen... and liking the camera app, big improvement.


I'm on yakju as well, but still haven't received it... I've tried turning off WiFi, force stopping Google Services Framework, then turning WiFi back on and checking for System Updates, but nothing...

How'd you get it?
I have a yakju set as well. yesterday morning no update available but checked again last night and it was there ready to be downloaded and installed


Seems like they roll it out slowly even within a release.  I guess if someone asked them they'd probably tell all about how they do it (provided it can't be gamed! eg. by serial number)...

I just got the 4.2,1 update also on my GN. Now it seems there is a bug in the News & Weather application (I think it's called Genie?) It now won't detect the current location for weather and I have to enter the city and it won't show NZ news as an option. It shows UK as a choice.

Anybody else notice that?

I agree, I've found 4.2.1 to be a lot slower than 4.1.2. Some things just take much longer!

Just checked, works fine for me.

That's very strange since I just checked on a factory fresh (well I factory reset it) Nexus S on 4.1 and it had the same problem.

And on my GN in the sports tab, all the sports news is UK stuff whereas before it used to be NZ sport mainly.

Give it a day or so then it should come right.  Mine did this initially too after flashing it.

I found out what it was. The update had turned off Google's location service (Settings/Google/Location Settings). It only became obvious when I tried to use Google Now and it complained the location settings had been turned off.
