Manually install Android 4.2.1 on the "takju" version of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus
Manually installing Android 4.2.1 is no harder than lather, rinse, repeat. You download the specific file meant for the "takju" model, reboot your phone to let it recover, and sideload the update and it is all done but the shouting, And if you want to wait for the OTA version to reveal itself, well that is just dandy too.
We should point out that if you didn't purchase your Samsung GALAXY Nexus from the Google Play Store, but flashed the "takju" factory image on the handset, this manual update should work for you as well.

I think takju are the beta testers, since yakju are all international versions of the GNexus.

lol.. developers of Sammy like alcohol very much.. takju is the traditional korean alcohol made my rice and yakju is a sort of 'herb alcohol' which is good to human body. .

What's the difference between the 2 models ? One is unlocked the other is a carrier version ?

I think takju is developed in usa and yakju in Europe, but I'm not sure

I manually upgarded to 4.2.1 takju so bye bye Samsung since mine was "yakjuxw" which didn;t even get a 4.1.2. Flashed takju stock image as updates on that come faster than yakju from what i read on forums. Lets see how fast i get the OTA update notification when it is released next time. From India.
