    First and foremost for me, it allows me to get rid of all the bloatware. Be also being able to adjust the CPU settings, backup all my apps and data etc... there is a lot that rooting allows you to do. It allows you do do with your phone all you want to and not just what your carrier will allow. The only headache is having to re-flash the phone for the JB upgrade, which this phone will not see the next version of Android after this anyway :)

    I had this problem when I first got the phone. When I set the connection type to internet and then select Ethernet as the connection type the update utility recognizes the phone.

    My phone does not recognize the update. Not rooted...Any way to force the update? I tried force stop Google Services Framework too and that does not work.

    For me the biggest thing is being able to use my phone as a hotspot and Faceniff. Not sure what headaches you are referring to but I have quite a few android devices and they are all rooted, some for a couple years now and I have never had any issues with them so far. If you are curious just try rooting your phone, it won't hurt anything and it can always be undone, it technically voids your warranty but it can be undone so Verizon and LG would never know.

    I can't manage to update my phone either on my PC it just says to allow the install of the upgrade assistant but nothing happens and the OTA update isn't working either, I can't imagine the frustration people are having that know nothing about android.

    I must say this is pretty sweet. I've got everything back to where we were progress wise. I found a working root, found a working recovery, and wifi tether is working great. Now with the update we have an up to date Google Now. Definitely the sweetest phone I've owned even if we don't have custom ROMs.

    Anyone having problems updating? I can't get it to install with either my PC or OTA and I'm dying to get a taste of the JB goodness.

    I was having issue getting this to take as well. I found I had to wipe everything out and reinstall ICS from the CAB file and then the JB update took.

    Has anyone noticed a severe drop in battery life so far on JB. It has only been a day but I have already noticed my battery draining much quicker.

    Can't say I have, I'm at 79% right now and am usually lower than that by this time of day (but i havent used it much either). Haven't really had enough time to tell for sure but it doesnt seem any worse so far for me.

    How di9d you get the Verizon update utility?? I was not given the option to install it when I plugged my phone into my PC through usb, no matter what type of connection I designates the phone as. I too am having the 0x13E error...
