    No official word, but the source is supposed to drop fairly soon, within a week or two I think.

    As for when you'll get the official OTA JB, I wouldn't count on Verizon releasing it anytime soon after source. They botched the 4.0.4 update and I see no reason to think they'll do any different with a major update.

    You could also root and ROM, I'm running JB right now:p

    I have been considering doing just that but I have everything set up just the way I want it and don't want to start over right now.

    You can make a nandroid backup of the stock ROM and it keeps everything all set up for ya. You will have to start with a fresh install of JB of course, but if you wanted to try it out just see what you're missing you can. Careful though, I don't think you can go back to ICS once you been spoiled by JB, I know I can't :D

    Dude, just make a TiBu and restore apps and app data. I flash all the time and always have my games restored.

    Also, my home screens and setup get restored.

    I used Wugs Tool Kit to unlock and root. It did not go smoothy, but it worked.

    If you want to try something super close to stock, try Jelly Belly. There are others out there which are more heavily modded, as much as possible without the source code.

    Good luck and let us know how it goes.

    You can't make a TiBu backup until you are rooted. To root you need to unlock. To unlock, your entire device would get wiped.

    You can make a backup prior to unlocking with adb. Wug's toolkit has the option for those that don't want to do it manually.

    True, but I had missed that he wasn't rooted, earlier.
