    Can we flash this if we're on a custom ROM?

    I have this same question. I'm assuming we can just flash it like any ROM though. Can anyone confirm? Just flash through CWM like its a custom ROM right? I wanna try stock again, but keep my root and maybe flash Franco again if the battery isn't any better.

    No.. Must be flashed over stock, using stock recovery.

    Does it wipe my phone if I manually sideload the update?

    I'm fully stock with locked bootloader if that matters.

    Nope. Doesn't touch your data.

    I have a back up on my phone made when I was stock if I flash that then flash this update will that work? Do I lose my apps or root etc?

    Don't know if I should try out stock for a while or wait for AOKP to make some porn hmmm...

    Damn, guess I gotta get back to stock if I want this, which is annoying.

    What are the big differences though? Battery life is my main concern but I doubt anyone will notice anything on that front until q day or two.

    No need to contact Google, it'll get to your device usually within the week unless they find a problem & pull it temporarily.
    Or sideload it to update manually if you don't want to wait.

    I've tried with no luck about a dozen times & clearing the App Data from "Google Services Framework" just keeps screwing up my Location permissions, so I'll either wait til the end of the week or just sideload it.

    I see was going to try myself but it seems is too early for that. I might side load it as well

    I'm assuming that this is only for those who have unlocked and rooted their phone since I am not getting the phone to recognize the zip file as an OS update. I also am not getting an "Update Available" notice when I manually check in the settings for an update. Am I stuck waiting until my phone finally gets the OTA update or is there a way to use this zip file to do the update?

    You don't have to be rooted to side load the update...I'm still running stock and did it late last night

    You cannot install a system update over a custom ROM. You must be stock.

    This update is for the Nexus 4 only. It won't work on your phone.

    I have no intention to do any modifications to my phone. I just bought a new phone running Android 4.2, and I want to have a users manual to follow. Your link takes me to download a bunch of folders and files which make no sense to me. Can you tell me how to get an Android 4.2 users manual instead? Thanks.

    The download consists of a number of zipped files and folders, which suggest a system uodate, not a user manual. What am I missing?
