    Hi All, 2 weeks of having my nexus on vzw and still love it. Anyways does anyone know the following?

    # 1 When will the jelly bean will be released for this device on VZW Network via OTA download?

    #2 Does anyone know the differences/enhancements, that Jelly Bean will provide versus the ICS rom currently being run?

    Thanks all as always Gooo NEXUS ! !!!!!!!

    As far as when the OTA will hit, that's anyone's guess. VZW has a reputation for slowing the update process dramatically.

    The enhancements/advantages I have noticed would primarily be smoothness and an overall refined feeling of the device. IMO it just feels much nicer then ICS, but that is just my experience. There are not a ton of new features but one of the more notable ones would be the expandable notifications in the drop down.

    My guess is the ota will happen 3 months from now! Don't kill the messenger. Just my prediction. I have nothing to back this!

    JB equals Speed, buttery smooth, Google now, desktop icon features just to mention a few.

    There are videos on you tube with specifics.

    Are you familiar with flashing roms? Why not flash it now and discover for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

    There are no headaches or warranty issues with this phone. All of the code is available for this phone so you are able to return it to 100% stock if need be. Not only that but all of the roms are also built from the code provided by Google so really, any issues / concerns are a thing of the past. With that said, nothing wrong with stock but man is JB worth it to me!

    I totally agree. The nexus is unique when it comes to flashing. I did not alter my thunderbolt or bioinic for the same concerns as the op. The nexus couldn't be easier! Even stock JB needs the extra customization available and its already here!

    I agree that rooting is a great benefit of Android and have done it to ALL the devices I have owned. But I will say if the idea makes you uncomfortable or uneasy then you should not do it. It is not a necessity.

    And if you decide to at some point, do lots of research before you do that way you are armed with all the knowledge you need.

    ^ Do what I did, read a LOT and watch youtube "how to" vids. After a while things seem to unfold and not be so confusing. Plus, run in to any trouble and we can bail you out!

    Not necessarily. It depends who receives it at VZW. Most times the phone gets reflashed back to stock then the diagnosis begins. This forum will guide you back to a factory fresh phone ready to return if you so choose.
