  • While smartphone manufacturers start pushing their updates for their devices not everyone gets them at the same time, even if the conditions are similar. Fortunately a method was discovered by the guys at XDA Developers to force the update notification into arriving for your handset. Mind you, the method was tested on Nexus devices, where the Google Framework hasn’t been touched by the manufacturer. Still, you may find it working on other devices.


    This method requires the clearing of all data for an important system app. That is the Google Services Framework. You will find it in Settings – Apps – All – Google Services Framework. Click on it and hit Clear Data then Force Stop. Once you’ve done that, you can check if the update is available by heading to Settings – About Phone – System Updates and hit Check Now. If the method worked you should get the update notification. If not, try repeating the steps involving the Sevices Framework and try again. Good Luck!
