    Not all of us are complaining about updates... though I do want it. I'm willing to wait for the OTA to be ready, and right. People are impatient and want what they want when they want it. Human nature I guess, but not all of us are super uptight. I will be a happy camper when that OTA notice arrives though :)

    As for rooting, yeah its not for everyone. But that doesn't mean a Nexus isn't for you either. I don't want to brick a $600 phone, that's not my idea of a good time. I've also go insurance on my phone and would like to be able to use it in case something happens. I don't have a backup VZW phone to use for another year if something happened to my Nexus. Plus, I actually like my phone stock. I got a Nexus because it will see updates faster than any other line of phones. May be no as fast as some want/expect but it will be faster than the Bionic or Razr etc.

    The only reason someone bricks their phone is either because they didn't do the research first or because they were trying something new I didn't understand how to use wugfreshes root tool kit but I just read and watched a few videos and now I'm totally comfortable. And if your worried about having to make an insurance claim and you are totally screwed I do believe they cover damage " wink wink "

    I've heard it's pretty difficult to hard brick this phone. Almost any brick that occurs can be repaired by returning to stock via Wug's. It is a developer phone, and with the unlocked bootloader, it is tough to hard brick.

    you know what a cluster bomb that a new OS on moto phones/tablets is going to be? are you aware of moto's horrid track record of poor software on all their 4g LTE phones (notably the bionic)? if you want pure entertainment, visit the moto droid forums after people get the ICS update-it's going to be hilarious :D


    how much you want to bet that when the GN get's it's update, it'll be FAR less buggy and problematic that any moto phone.

    Eh?

    You must have a different version of 4.0.2 than I do. Sure there are a couple things that could be better. But all in all, I'm having no issues, and it is a whole heck of a lot better than my Fascinate, and I liked my Fascinate a lot.

    He's whining about the GMS Nexus. He's not a Verizon user.

    The phones been out 3 going on 4 months. How many updates were you expecting to be completed and tested in that time? They don't just throw a few fixes together and push it like GB was. It's a brand new OS and things are being written from scratch. It takes time. Also don't piss on the work of the Devs, referring to them as joe shmoe in their mothers basement. That might have been the most stupid comment I've ever read. They are very intelligent and hard working and do it all for FREE for us to enjoy. In fact, the whiney little comments sound a lot like some spoiled little brat living in their mother's basement. Sbenson is completely right. You would have to intentionly try to "hard" brick it. Stop your whining and sell the damned thing if you dislike it so much. I used to love this site but it turned into a bunch of complainers who whine about every little thing. Grab your nuts and your usb cable and take care of the problems. Like it or not, the solutions people are giving you are the only ones available right now. Rant over... Peace out.

    Currently have 4.0.2 and per all the hype from Google (& Verizon?) thought the nexus would be first to get updates. Noe I hear the Motorola Xoom is getting 4.0.4.

    I can't wait for an update & hear 4.0.4 / 4.0.5 will fix many issues -
    Such as slow auto rotate, network, better multi tasking & others.
