Force Android Firmware Update (without root)

Hi folks,

this article is related to all of Google Phone users like Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, etc. If Google releaes some firmware update you can „force“ your device to receive this update also if your device tells you that no update is available. This is working also for all of your devices which havn’t rooted. As i know this workflow is working at any devices from any to any firmware updated :) you have to do the following simple steps to force your device to get the update:

  1. Go to „Settings -> Apps -> All -> Google-Service-Framework“
  2. Delete „Data and Cache“ and agree with „yes“
  3. Stop the service (it will start again)
  4. Go to „Settings -> About the Phone -> Systemupdate“
  5. The last date the Phone has check updates should be in year 1970. Please click „check now“.
  6. Now you sould receive the update-information of the Phone and you can download the Firmware Upgrade. If not please repeat all the steps again a few times (yes, this works)!

Enjoy this nice Tutorial and also enjoy the new Android Firmwares ;)
