Many people get Nexus devices for the fact that, these are the devices which get latest android updates first. But these updates doesn’t reach to every Nexus device at the same time. Maybe Google rolls it out based on user location.

But sometimes your neighbor gets the update but not you 🙁

In such cases, need not worry, just follow these simple steps and get updates to your device with in few minutes:

Go to your phone settings -> apps

app-all-google-framework

Here slide the options – Downloaded -Running – All

Under All, search for ‘Google Services Framework‘, click on it:

clear-data-cache

Here click on Clear data and Clear cache buttons.

Now Force stop the application by clicking on Force stop button at the top.

Restart the phone.

Once the phone is ON, check for the update notification. If it still doesn’t appear, follow the above procedure at least twice – by switching your phone to airplane mode.

Example:

android-kitkat-4.4.3-update-ota

I could (OTA – Over The Air)update my Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 to KitKat 4.4.3 using above mentioned method and I was successful in 2 attempts – took me around 2 minutes.

    1. @Anand, nope it won’t hurt. The app restarts once your device is restarted. That’s when the app tries to fetch you the update on OTA.

  1. Many thanks to you sir! This method worked first time, far easier than the 2 failed hours attempting to do it manually
