    Very nice its about time! I like that they continue to improve the phone rather than just update the OS especially the mobile hotspot improvement that was always an issue for me

    You will get a notification stating that an update is available. However, you will only know if the update will install successfully when you try. If you get an error and it does not install correctly, use rsd lite on your computer to flash the 246 fxz file to your bionic. Then you will be able to take the jb ota update.

    Finally, I can limp my way all the way to the next google experience phone. The Bionic has been a great device taking everything I can throw at it in the construction field suffering only a broken volume toggle and a cracked screen corner... however it's lack of support from Verizon and Motorola has left a bad taste in my mouth. I'm sick of waiting for upgrades or resulting to rooting and manipulation with buggy software and I won't be a victim again. Next stop, Nexus 5!

    If you love all things root, I would advise not to take the 4.1 update until there is a confirmed root procedure... Just sayin'.

    You will get the notification if your on stock ROM, but it will fail if you altered/removed any bloatware or if you have safe strap installed.

    Just use Voodoo OTA rootkeeper it's worked every time for me and I'm pretty sure MotoFail still works on 4.1.2

    I would take his advice... voodoo works great until you have to fxz... then root is gone unless you have a working exploit.
