I've got a stock nexus and was wondering when it will receive 4.2 ota. Im not too smart when it comes to phones so I don't know how to root or do all that fancy stuff. Thanks

Well...considering verizon didn't get 4.1 til about 2mo after it was announced (which is fast by their standards) maybe we'll see it by mid or end of January:D

If you want more info on root, check out the second link in my sig. If you want the easiest way to root, checkout Wug's Toolkit

I agree about mid January-ish. You ought to see all the whining and complaining on the Verizon forums. It's rather quite humorous.

Haha haven't gone over there for awhile, but I can imagine the people there complaining.

Seem's like we get word that Sprint's GNEX gets and update then a week later we get it. So I wonder what Sprints timeline is :p

Maybe VZW will beat Sprint this time *holds breath* :D

I don't see Verizon getting the update until the radio issue is fixed. VZ told me the signal loss should of been resolved back with the September Update. Has a Soak test been done at all from Samsung? Does Samsung do soak tests like Moto?

I'm not seeing signal loss issues, but I do have my phone re-boot on its own from time-to-time. I know 4.2 has some under the hood improvements so I'm hoping the update helps.

Otherwise though my phone works fine. Some of the new features are interesting but not critical that I get them.

Now that Verizon is going to stop carrying the Galaxy Nexus I wonder what that means for OTA updates. Hope they don't abandon the device completely. :frown:
