Is there any news for when we will get the Jellybean 4.2 OTA update? If I recall correctly it has been a couple of months so in theory Verizon should be releasing it soon.

All OTA's have taken roughly 2 months to be approved, so I would conservatively expect you guys should receive it sometime within January.

Unless you choose to unlock, root, and slap some CM 10.1 goodness on you device. Just did yesterday, works very well.

Isn't rooting and tossing a rom on the phone the reason we bought a nexus device?

If I have been helpful to you, please go to the store, buy a bunch of beer, and send it to my house.

Did that help the reboots? Mines rebooting alot lately and I've done 5 factory resets in the past month and it's still not fixed.

Troll crossing. Don't feed them, they come back. Like stray cats. :p

I tried a JB 3.1 rom on my i515 and only have one software problem. When the phone is charged and the charger is disconnected the charge icon stays on. The only way to reset it is to pull the battery. Phone uses battery normally and it doesn't seem to cause any problems. It's just very annoying to me. Going to switch back to the 4.1.1 because of this as i have not found any fixes for it.

I've given up waiting, I'm running a CM10.1 nightly, I've been very happy with it. When I bought the phone it was with the expectation that there would be frequent OTA updates but the ability to root it was also a factor because it provided an alternative path for getting the latest code, I'm a big believer in belts and suspenders. In this case the belt, Verizon, has broken but the suspenders of rooting is working fine. I have a year to go on my contract, when it's up I'll probably buy a new Nexus phone directly from Google and then run it on the best alternative network available at that time. I'm hoping that AT&Ts LTE coverage will be adequate a year from now, I doubt that Sprint's will be but you never know. I also hope that the next Nexus phone is better than the Nexus 4 which in all regards is inferior to the Galaxy Nexus that we have now (no LTE , tiny memory and non-removably battery is three strikes against it).
