    Default When will the official 4.2 drop for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus?

    When will the official 4.2 drop? The launch of the Nexus 4 was two months ago. Sprint is cooperating with AOSP. So what is the hold up? Any ideas?

    Take your best guess that's all we can do right now. It's up to sprint when we get it

    I'd say since the updates come from sprint and not directly from google, you may be waiting a while.

    My understanding is that Google pushes the updates to the Nexus, not Sprint. Part of the reason we got Jelly Bean so quickly (September) compared to Verizon that seems to have just gotten it in the last week.

    Acctualy Google sends the update to sprint so they can update the radios. An then sprint sends it to us

    They should fix 4.2.1 first. It is VERRRRY buggy. Consider yourselves lucky.

    I'm sure 4.2 has already been in Sprints hands for some time, but Sprint like an US carrier likes to do their own internal testing. I'm sure Sprint will drop it when they are ready or they could be waiting on Google to work out some bugs in 4.2

    Every one should be on jb on the Nexus already but so far sprints are only updated to 4.1.1 I think

    Sprint normally lags 4-6 months on their Nexus updates. I normally root until a new stock ROM is available, but I haven't yet because 4.2 is so minor. The only real issue I have with the 4.1 stock ROM is battery life.

    Actually for the 4.1 update to the Galaxy Nexus Sprint did a great job. It was about two months. That's pretty impressive considering lots of phones haven't received 4.1 yet. I'd say expect it before the end of February with a possibility of as early as next week.

    Anyone get hit with the OTA? It was either pulled, or I'm in the very last wave to get rolled out.

    Sprint just started the OTA push on 1/30 to roll out over 21 days. A lot of people haven't gotten yet, including me.

    Yeah, I'm not in a rush or I would have rooted in November. I used to work at sprint so I could monitor how quick people were getting updates, but I hadn't seen anyone post confirmation yet. Can anyone speak to if they improved the battery from the dropoff from 4.0 to 4.1?

    I got 4.2 this AM but I'm trying not to install it. Is it possible to reject the upgrade and make it go away?

    I got the 4.2 OTA this morning. So far so good. Photosphere works great, phone is still snappy, no obvious issues. Then again, I haven't had any of the other issues people have mentioned before the update either. I guess I got lucky.
