    We have some exciting news for Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus users. Verizon just announced that the Android 4.1/Jelly Bean (JRO03O) OTA update is inbound for the phone. It's only available via a WIFi update right now, so keep that in mind and turn your WiFi on before you rush to grab in manually. The update clocks in at 145MB and includes a number of improvements beyond just the amazing Jelly Bean goodness. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the tip, tgyberg!

    What are the differences between this one and the one that was leaked a couple months ago? Is it worth it to go back?

    Well at least now the JB ROM community should be improving features vastly. :) This is pretty awesome! I'm waiting for a warranty replacement Nexus right now though, until Monday. Figures! Oh well, I have been running JB ROMs since they started being first developed anyways.

    SO I wonder if I should go back to stock, pull this update and then run tools to mod. Or why bother?

    Now the timing of the update makes me wonder if they were deliberately waiting for the iPhone 5 to be released....

    I cannot download it yet. I wonder if the method to force update to 4.0.4 will work with this one?
