Tip: How to ‘force check’ for an update

So your eagerly waiting for Google to push the latest OTA update to your phone? Here is a trick that ‘may’ help speed up the process.

The factory System Update checks for a new version every few hours, but other users on various forums have found out a way to potentially speed up the process. I say potentially because it may take one, two or many times for this to work, but I can confirm that it did work for me. Heres what you need to do:

Go into your Setting -> Apps -> All -> Google Services Framework

You will see a button for “Clear Data”; clear it.

Go into your dialer and type *#*#2432546#*#*  – This will cause a ‘force checkin’. You will notice that it show “checkin succeeded”. You have performed the operation correctly. Like I stated earlier, you may have to repeat the process many times. I suggest trying this a few times every couple hours as you will drive yourself crazy if you keep checking over and over.

If it works, an update will popup. This procedure will work for any future OTA update as well.
