    Ok, you don’t need an app to do this, you just check your settings and about phone, and the build string will indicate what you are running.

      Well, I just tried that and my “build string” (actually “Build number”) does NOT indicate yakju, takju, yakjuux, etc. It’s just numbers and letters:

      ITL41F.I9250UGKL1

      Apparently you do need an app (on 4.0.1 at least…)

    Mine one is yakjujp. So is it revieving upfates directly from google or not?

    Easiest way to check is to open Google Maps, go to “Settings” > “About”. Under the “Device” heading, you can see what you are running.
