    Just the usual Verizon neglect. They messed up this phone before it even launched by delaying it over and over again. Don't expect any changes from Verizon anytime soon. Do yourself a huge favor and turn to the wonderful dev community. If not, then there really isn't anything to complain about, Verizon basically hasn't supported this phone from the start and to think they'll change at this point is wishful thinking

    Even the Samsung supported Yakjuxw Galaxy Nexus has received 4.1.1 Jellybean. That's how much Verizon is slacking. I'm just glad I unlocked my bootloader so I'm not bound to their delayed updates (or lack thereof).

    So,it's fair to say,the S3 on Sprint will see JB b4 S3 in VZW.

    Been busy with school and stuff. What you been up to buddy?

    And OP, Verizon keeps their own employees in the dark. Like I said, if you expect Verizon to finally start showing support for this device you're dreaming. They have neglected it from the very beginning and with it being into its 10th month, it won't change.

    Verizon totally screwed the pooch re Nexus

    Don't expect much out of vzw. All they are good for is promoting new phones and building out LTE. They have a trail of phones left-for-dead and users twisting in the wind going back forever.
    If you want JB go here: http://galaxynexusroot.com/
    I
    'm sure there are other great sites but this is the one I used. I had my GNex unlocked, rooted and running JB on Frankos kernel within 3 hours of getting it home. If a dumb-ass like me can do it, anyone can.
    The only caveat is that I had ADB running prior to getting my Nexus from tweaking my Bionic.
    Read first. There's great videos to help clarify.
    If you have a Nexus, this is what it was made to do.
