The sim refreshing part I believe is because you're using 3G from a provider who doesn't have 3G license in that circle and apparently using roaming with some other operator. For e.g. Airtel in Kerala doesn't have 3G license but provide the same through Idea cellular. If on 3G services, I believe you've to learn to live with it or go for a phone with better back up.
Update: today if lasted 10 hours only with full charge with sparse net usage and zero calls!!! I think i will switch back to 2G !

Yes in karnataka, Vodafone does not have 3G. They use AirTel's support for 3G. And i am running on vodafone! :(

Will search for some apps which can increase the battery life on 3G. If it does not work out then i will switch back to 2G

There's no way other than switch to 2G when not downloading anything I think I have to live with it. If I go for plan B (read buy another phone just after 3 months on this one), my finance minister aka wifey will kick me out

Any one ready for the switch ?
Are you sure it is just TAKJU devices only? I thought it was only YAKJU or both of them.

Yes. I checked the Google factory images site. 4.2 is listed only for TAKJU not for YAKJU.

You are right. I am planning to flash YAKJU 4.1.2 hoping that I'll get the 4.2 OTA pretty soon. What say?

I am on 4.1.2 and on takju and just checked. No update yet. Seems Strange.

Is there any other way to determine whether it can be updated?

how did you know you are takju ? could you post the screenshot of your build prop ?

You can manually update by flashing the update from virtual SD card

Hells_Fury got the OTA on 4.1.2 TAKJU.

Hhm. We could do that. I am gonna try my luck for few more days and may be they will launch it for YAKJU too. I will have to re-install all the apps again, if I convert to TAKJU.

Goto Maps, Settings, About and it shows the build as Samsung Takju. Got to know this way to check from XDA .

Flashing means rooting right?

Hmm, in that case Clevermax and I will wait for your update on the OTA as you are already on TAKJU 4.1.2.

By the way did you try to force stop the google services framework and clear data and try to check for update ?

Anyway I will have to re-install or restore apps from a Titanium backup. Why I say so - I already tried flashing the /system alone of a 4.1.2 yakju build, and the phone entered a bootloop. Later learned that one needs to flash the data as well, in order to move to yakju from yakjuxw.

Any harm in moving straight to takju 4.2 build? Just the system and data, without touching the radio and all - If Takju is going to be the first build which gets updated on every new version, that is

Few people moved to 4.2 directly. No issues encountered.

Flashing is flashing firmware, it is not rooting.

Then it makes sense to move straight to takju 4.2, instead of flashing 4.1.2 yakju and hoping that ota will hit soon!

I already downloaded the 4.1.2 yakju. But I will keep it aside, started downloading takju 4.2

BTW, still no sure whether there are changes in the bootloader between yakju(xx) and takju.

I switched off and switched on my phone and then tried to do the update via the system updates function but still zilch.

Even my Nexus 7 running 4.1.2 is not showing any update. A friend's Nexus 7 which was bought 2 months before mine got the 4.2 OTA update already.

My Nexus 7 is also on 4.1.2 now, waiting for 4.2. Oh, mine was purchased almost a month back..

BTW, Are you experiencing touchscreen issues? I am not finding Nexus 7's touchscreen to be that responsive. It is sometimes a pain to scroll web pages and stuff with just the swipe of my thumb upwards or downwards. Scrolling just stops and recoils a little.
