I haven't done it yet, but now I'm suddenly afraid to.

I haven't had this issue. But I did a factory reset after the OTA.

Did you actually install the WiFi image?

Yes.. It was the OTA update. I have not rooted or manually flashed ever. I called google, the say they are looking into the matter. They said that the images on their page also have the same build number so they may have pushed the wrong image to the 2012 WiFi model. Did a factory reset and icon is gone but still have the mobile data configuration, mobile data, and phone showing up under all programs under apps\all as well as an airplane mode on the pull down menu. Hoping that the 5.0.1 update hits soon for this model or they can replace the unit. I also cleared the cache partition and it helped with the constant rebooting but the unit still reboots when under heavy load. Hopefully it is just a memory leak that the new patch will fix.
