Just forced the OTA update to my phone.............here's how.
I read this on another forum, and since I had nothing better to do I gave it a shot...........and it worked.
Home/menu/settings/apps/all/google services framework/
Once it opens clear data and force stop it.
Hit home/settings/about phone/check for updates.
It took me 7-8 times doing it, and then it started downloading the update, installed, and no problems at all. Some of the other people on that forum did it 3 times and it worked, some did it 15 and it worked, and of course some did it a lot and nothing happened.
Nothing is lost by clearing the data and force stopping it, so no fear there.
Give it a shot, you really have nothing to loose but about 10 minutes of time............and you have a lot to gain if it works.
The method does work after 6th try for me up in Rochester, NY
THIS DOES WORK: YOU JUST HAVE TO BE PATIENT! I actually gave up after my 5th try. Then I read all the user comments and decided to keep trying and voila, unbelievably it downloaded the update and as I type I'm installing the update! Giddy UP!
After it installed it shut down and now a screen states "Android is upgrading (Optimizing application ... of 125.)
I've updated on my original Droid it has never said that before, I'm guessing ICS has different update parameters and a different method of "upgrading" as it states..... It just finished upgrading "contacts" and now I'm a live with my Nexus. WOW, I'm getting 3 bars of 4G while just before the update in the same location I was only getting 1 bar. Google chrome seems faster too... Time will tell what else has been improved.
