I received the update at 4:34 AM. Try doing a phone dial to checkin.

 

+ The search bar at the top no longer states "Google" in it anymore.

That's interesting. Still no go. Says I'm up to date. What do you mean phone dial to check in? Like call someone. I've done that.

 

Dial on the phone pad : *#*#2432546#*#*

Tried to check in. Said successfully checked in but still no update. I guess just have to wait. Its not a major update anyway. What does check in do anyway and where does it check in?

 

It checks the server for updates. Usually it works, but these Android patches roll out in waves.

Well its day 2 of release and still non sign on my phone. If it was supposed to be jellybean I would have gone mad.

 

Haha, I would agree. This update doesn't do much for normal users. The only new thing I have noticed is switching from WiFi to 3G is a little bit faster, but not by much. Sprint TV still won't download because it's not compatible.

 

You can still try to get the update by stopping and clearing the google service frameworks in the App settings page, and dialing checkin. That's at least how I got some updates pushed to my HTC Sensation 4G when I had it.

If you still aren't getting the update, stop and clear the google service frameworks in Settings - Apps - All. Followed by pulling the battery for 10 minutes or so, restart it and see if you get the update. If not, try the dial code.

 

These updates are sent out in waves, sometimes you can pull them without being in the current wave.

Not really update related, but I finally tried out CM10 with a new kernel and I have been getting awesome battery life since. I did, however, change my screen timeout from 5 minutes to 30 seconds, but I am getting double+ battery life compared to before.

Only an hour and a half screen on time though...

Ha! I'll be the first to admit the Galaxy Nexus's battery is bad. With the screen off and not in use my 100% drops to 80% within 2 hours.... And it's idle...

I had great standby life with my GNex, about 2% an hour battery loss. My battery life was only fair while in use, but was great in standby.

I've noticed that it depends a lot on the ROM/Kernel that I am running. Some are tuned more for performance and some for battery life. I had good results with stock, then bad after an update, then good on several ROM/kernels and then horrible on a ROM/kernal, although I think the ROM I was running was getting buggy and causing battery drain. So far, I don't know if it is CM10 or the kernel, or combo, but it is great. I have the OEM extended battery though.

Yeah, the overall battery life when my gnex was stock was ok at best but with the current rom my battery life has more than doubled as well. Also, jelly bean really is pretty sweet, I knew there was a reason why I didn't sell my gnex.

Must be something wrong with my battery... I shouldn't be losing 20% every 2 hours in standby, it's crazy. I would love to get the extended battery but for some reason I don't want to get rid of my Sprint back plate.

 

Currently I have 83% and my screen hasn't be on since I charged it about two hours ago..

It will fit with stock plate, there is just a small gap by the camera.

 

I will find my stock plate and take a picture

 

There is something funky. Mine will last days on standby

Yeah, it doesn't make sense to me. Standby for 2 hours and I'm at 82%... I would love to take it to Sprint and ask for a new one, but I'm not sure what I'll get, and my previous visits haven't been that amazing.

What does it say is using the battery?

 

With a signal and not using the phone, the battery can last for days.

I noticed that standby battery life was VERY dependent on signal with the GNEX. If I had strong signal, standby life was amazing. If I had 1 bar or less, forget about it.

 

How is your signal strength?

    • The powerline tower overlooking downtown Redmond has FINALLY been upgraded. I guess it took this long due to the large birds nest on top of the tower. During the upgrade, they moved all LTE frequencies including B41 to one eNB 84782 and decommissioned eNBs 97521 and 95988. Additionally, the tower finally has all three 5G-SA bands (gNB 1852420). 
    • I have 3 Samsung Galaxy a10e for mapping LTE. For 5G I like the Samsung a32 5g (both factory unlocked).  In both cases try to get one with firmware from the spring of this year.  Then you can use the Samsung Band Selection app no matter what the carrier. Been trying to get my OnePlus Nord n200 5Gs squared away with android 11 and rooted.  OnePlus bought out by Oppo thus service and strategic direction are both problems.  Just getting an e-mail back for the unlock the bootloader process is taking a while. Once we get out of NSA, 5g will be much easier to map. Factory unlocked esim issues are plentiful on high end Samsungs.  My quest is a factory unlocked phone that works well with SCP and Cellmapper for both SA and NSA, with multiple active esims that work easily with MVNOs, functioning VoNR, great reception and transmission, full band support for AT&T and Dish. My next hopeful candidate is the s23.
    • Forgot to mention that I traveled all over the lower Hudson Valley last weekend while using the Verizon eSIM trial to directly both carriers' coverage on one device as opposed to using a second phone. Coverage was virtually the same in my experience with the biggest exception being the Bear Mountain region. All along the Long Mountain Parkway from Woodbury Common going east, coverage remained virtually the same. Both carriers reported similar signal strength going all the way down to 1 bar at the same times but when I arrived at the roundabout near where Long Mountain and Palisades Parkway meet up with one another, Verizon had a much stronger signal compared to T-Mobile's 1 bar. Verizon has a series of sites installed all over Bear Mountain State Park to provide signal to visitors. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like any other carrier attempted to do the same in the 2+ years since they got built. Because of these sites when you're driving on Bear Mountain Bridge and along Bear Mountain Bridge Road going south, Verizon has slightly stronger signal than T-Mobile. — — — — — I'm thinking about buying a burner Android phone to get back into mapping again because I drive around the city a lot and never get the chance to do so. I have a Galaxy S7 Edge in a drawer with an inactive T-Mobile SIM but it doesn't register LTE at all and it doesn't have Band 71 so it's not that useful for me. Any recommendations for phones/plans to map cheaply?
    • So what am I missing???   Why cant i get the s22 ultra do a screen share through cord??  Trying to get it to share to my 10" auto screen. I could enable it with the note 20.. but I cant seem to get this to do it.. All the videos show 1 way, but that setting isnt there.
    • Got the update last night. Broke SCP notifications .... so yay.
