    You can skip Step 1, and skip the part where you install IMM76Q (since you have it already)...but be sure to unlock your device first.

    Yes. And it'll be unrooted, so there's that lol.
    I'm afraid it didn't get rid of root on mine and I'm not a fan of root. Is there any way of getting rid of rot without having to go back to stock 4.0.2 and going through the whole process again? I really don't want to have to wipe this phone but root is one of those things that I like to avoid.

    if you are not unlocked already, you cannot flash updates. unlocking automatically wipes your phone but then you will be able to flash updates. If you are on stock ICS, once you unlock, you flash from 76k --> 76Q--> JB and will never have rooted your phone.. if you were already rooted you will lose root i believe. Once you are running JB you can flash the stock recovery and relock your bootloader and be completely stock on the build. I did exactly that earlier today and my work emails are working since it is completely stock, non root and non unlock and buttery jelly amazingness.

    if you are already unlocked and rooted you can just unroot using superSU

    can anyone get the My Verizon app working?
    pretty sure 99.999% of people on these forums force stopped and disabled that app with in 30 seconds of getting their phone.

    I've been unlocked since I got the phone on release day. I rooted and flashed the JB file but root persisted after the update. I reverted back to 4.0.4 and then flashed again. You actually don't need root if you're on IMM76Q. Oh well, I guess wiping my phone was overdo. I'm enjoying unrooted JB now.

    well if it is any consolation i went through the process of restoring my phone all day with the new build but i can say with absolutely certainty it was worth it. Enjoy!!

    Definitely worth it. I had used a few of the ROMs out there and even compiled my own. I prefer the official leaks and OTA route though. Been rooting/flashing since my OG Droid. I'm on Androind phone #6 and I'm so over that habit.

    I just flashed the new radios found in this thread on AC. I am in the basement of a building so I haven't been able to test out the effectiveness of the new radios. From what I have read it is a 50/50 for people - some have seen great improvements and some have not. I figured why not give them a go and at least have the latest radios.

    Considering the nature of what it is (a Verizon OTA) and the general interest level amongst folks, I put it here.

    Followed the instructions while using Wug's Toolkit and had no problem coming from stock ICS.

    Was locked and not rooted so I simply created an android backup file, saved my media as usual, backed up SMS, Call Logs and Contacts.

    Very easy to do, even for a noob like myself and now I won't have to impatiently wait for OTA.

    Here's a flashable version of the OTA, courtesy of Droid-Life. Flash it like any other rom, so follow normal flashing procedures .
    I read a comment on Droid life that installing this zip causes loss of root, but phone remains unlocked.

    Am I correct that if this occurs, I will be able to receive the official OTA when it's pushed? If so, this is a winning situation IMO.

    Installing any OTA will cause you to lose root. You can (1) install OTA rootkeeper, or (2) flash the superuser.zip I have in the second (I think lol) post.

    Regarding taking the OTA, you will need to be on whatever the latest official release is. You see how you need to be on IMM76Q for this to work? That is probably what you will need to be on for the official OTA. Again, if it mirrors IMM76K, this has a good chance of being that OTA, but never say never!

    sort of odd in my opinion you have to come from imm76Q to use this.. Makes me think they will push them out one after the other?? I hope there isnt a gap in between.. well i guess i dont care since i already flashed it..

    Or maybe even the OTA will be the same build but takes you from 76k to JB?

    I agree with you. I think it is the most perplexing thing about this, and I hope the final one just skips it altogether.

    I flashed the radios only over the Euroskank JB Rom and the new radios are just a bit better for me. I notice better speed when switching between wifi and 4G signals.

    Hey guys,

    I have a question for everyone who uses this now in terms of the signal. Has the signal strength improved on the device? I know there have been issues of service dropping but my nexus always had very weak 4G reception compared to other phones. I didn't know if this made it stronger or pick up 4G better or what. Any answers would be appreciated.

    Thanks!
