    Thanks, I'll have a look tonight. I think it automatically updates, but I'll check to be sure.

    Apex Launcher doesn't FC anymore after an update today, thankfully. Haven't used it much yet so I don't know if anything else in it is broken.

    None of the dock folders work for me in Apex...not even the app drawer. Hopefully there will be an update soon.

    Dolphin web browser is dead after the update. Doesn't open. I have reinstalled it with no change. Will have to wait.

    Because it would make our lives easier? And maybe they were afraid of it leaking. Personally, I think they should have "accidentally" leaked it with a reviewer's guide to see what gets caught...

    NOTE: This has been FIXED by Mozilla. Install Firefox Beta and make sure it is the version from November 15th. I was running the November 8th build and no go, and even an uninstall/reinstall was installing the old version. I was able to go into the details on the app in the play store, hit BACK, then click on details again, then go BACK, and repeat the process 4-5 times, and like magic an UPDATE button appeared one time.

    Firefox is now rockin' steady on the Beta release, 15 November build.

    Android pro widgets, calender not working.

    Facebook messenger not working

    This is the first update since 4.0 which seems to do more harm than good, everything was fine until now.

    Nexus is a developer device. We get updates very, VERY soon after they come out of the repositories. Often, this means we get updates at the same time or even before the developers themselves do. That's one of the major selling points of a Nexus - instant updates to the latest version so developers can test their code.

    And that means things might go "boom".

    It's a good idea to ignore the update to the latest update for a week or two if you don't want to deal with zero-day bugs.

    But they don't have to worry about that. Have the official announcement in NYC and then, after you've announced all the new features, give developers some time to work with it before the official release.

    Tasker is no longer switching to profiles that trigger on being connected to a particular WiFi SSID. The developer is aware of the problem, but doesn't have a 4.2 device to test with.

    Confirm that MX Player is not working :-( I also cannot access files on the download list.
    I am really disappointed with this system update!

    Dice player has been updated. It works fine now.
    Firefox crashes with Flash but is supposed to be fixed in the updated beta and the full release 17 on the 20th November.

    Amazon app store won't let me log in without entering my password every single time.

    If you hold off the release to developer devices, what is the developer supposed to test on, exactly?

    The "official release" is putting it out on the repositories (AOSP). Nexus devices, by and large, receive the updates very soon after the code hits AOSP. This is by design, so developers get an early shot at the code before the carriers and others start loading it on their devices.

    If you have a Nexus device and you are not prepared for apps to break, you really, REALLY need to be ignoring that update notification for at least a week or two.

    Don't know if this was mentioned yet but stick mount doesn't work on 4.2 probably due to the new way storage media is handled.

    The Starred Files option in Documents To Go stopped working after the Android 4.2 update. I had to uninstall the app, then reinstall it in order for that feature to work again on my Nexus 7 tablet.
