    Thank you Verizon for ruining any chances of us who like to have a nexus with your network.

    I saw this coming when they botched the release. They made themselves unworthy of carrying the Nexus 4 and Google was wise to not make a cdma version. Who knows if we'll see another Nexus, but I doubt Verizon will.

    From what I have been reading Google and dish network are joining up to come up with there own mobile service. They say that they are going to be up in running later next year. They also said that their internet will be a lot faster and cheaper than all the networks right now.

    I haven't heard anything about a Google and Dish Network joint project, but I do know about Google Fiber. Wonder why Google would team up with Dish Network for a joint project phone? Maybe provide TV services on the go?

    Dish network would provide the spectrum that Google would need to really compete with Verizon and ATT.

    Man those updates sure would be nice. I wouldn't even know where to begin rooting. Never done it and I'd be afraid of bricking it. Big Red seems to make it more possible to disappoint it's customers.

    Rooting won't brick your phone....it's what you do after rooting with the newfound superuser access that could "brick" your device. You having a Nexus device makes it almost impossible to brick unless you do something totally silly like flash a corrupt boot.img and a bad recovery img all at once. If you want root, there's a couple of stickies in the dev section.

    However, to further address what GalaxyFlatulence is referring to, you don't even need to actually root. You simply need to unlock your bootloader, flash a recovery img, and flash a ROM. Ta da! You are now rooted and if you flashed a ROM based on 4.2, then you have the latest update. Easy.
