    I unlocked the bootloader and rooted before upgrading to 4.0.2 and realized after that I cannot get OTA without being unrooted. Do I just run superboot windows to unroot and then I can download the OTA for 4.0.2?

    You can flash the factory images to your phone to break root.

    But that being said, I wouldn't recommend going to all that trouble just to get an OTA update. There are so many better ways. It's pretty easy to just flash an OTA update to your phone through Clockwork Recovery.

    Well I have done Clockwork Recovery before on Droid X. Do I need to use that too so I can flash 4.0.2 from the official Google Nexus factory image page onto the device or is there a simpler method since this is an unlocked Nexus device?

    I wouldn't bother with 4.0.2 since 4.0.3 is already out (unofficially). I'm not 100% certain, though, if you can jump from 4.0.1 to 4.0.3 with no problems. But as long as you make a nandroid backup, it's pretty much a no-harm-no-foul proposition if something is out of whack. It's easy to get back to where you were.

    I'm using Zygot3 1.8 rom which contains 4.0.3 and a custom kernel that is overclockable and underclockable. It also has some nifty features and is pretty close to being bug-free. Zygot3 2.0 is already out, but I'm gonna wait for 2.1 before I upgrade again.

    I would recommend attempting to flash the Zygot3 2.0 custom rom (after installing clockwork recovery through the app ROM Manager) and see how that does for you.

    Nevermind! Phone automattically found OTA while I was getting some leftovers from last night (stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, Paula Deane ham, and Coke Zero for those wondering ). Updated fine and my wifi seems to be working now too. Yay! Just need to reroot since the OTA took it away (someone needs to tell VZW that is anti-Nexus). I bet Google hates putting up with their crap for the Galaxy Nexus

    4.0.2 was a Google update that broke root, not a Verizon update. And yes, you will usually be able to let the phone auto-update itself if you are willing to re-root every time. To me, rooting the phone multiple times is incredibly annoying. I hate waiting ten minutes for the thing to boot up lol.

    Meh was not all that bad. I can see your point, though.

    There are different ways to unroot an Android depending on how you root the device itself. But so far as I know, these methods http://www.ccnworldtech.com/2015/04/...id-phones.html works on almost any smartphone. If you've successfully unroot your device then you need not to bother.

    Not really. Who would want to root a phone on 4.02? In fact, how many still run KitKat? Even the article link was 2015. Different Android versions require different solutions

    Maybe you didn't follow the topic. It is not about "root" as you are claiming, it is about "unroot". And you saying "who would want to root a phone on 4.02" and "how many still runs KitKat" makes me wonder what country you are from, kinda tip me up you have no clue about the world on the outside. Go to India and some African countries and you'll see many people still using an eight years old PC.

    The world outside is irrelevant as is where I live. If you spend time on the forums you will see there is little discussion about Jelly Bean. Go to India blah blah blah. Comparing a PCs life to that of an Android device is irrelevant. You ever tried to add RAM or new graphics card to a PC?
    I politely pointed out you resurrected a 5 year old post and you try to make an issue out of it. As someone who posts here quite regularly, this is annoying. It fills the forum with stuff that is irrelevant. Then you try to deflect this by referring to India, Africa and PCs. I'm surprised you didn't mention Antarctica.

    Lol. The topic is not about Jelly Bean either, I just don't understand what you are trying to point out. And pls calm down, this is part of fun and learning.
