I don't expect an ota for a while, but getting a leak to build roms out of would be at least something. We did get that 4.04 leak back in February that a lot of the verizon nexus roms were based off of for a while. So I could see that happening, but never a guarantee.

I bet we see a leak much sooner. And as for that category...me thinks it's more like a 6

A leak would be great. But most of the Roms we're using today are based off of 4.0.4 source code, not the actual 4.0.4 VZW build. That is two different things.

I don't see myself getting too excited over it until I know what Jelly bean brings to the table.

Just check out out Edgadget and their blog on the I/O event. Everything is laid out on the table for the masses to see what newness it brings.

Quite a bit.
For months it was rumored to be a minor incremental update. If what was revealed in the Keynote presentation is 'minor', I hate to see what Key Lime Pie will be when its released.

Default Verizon Jelly Bean

So how long until the Verizon Galaxy Nexus gets Jelly Bean? I am assuming when they say "mid july" for the OTA, they are referring to the GSM version.

I say October-November for us verizon folk.

officially? nobody knows. Unofficially as soon as it leaks. Verizon will take forever to release it most likely.

I like the new notification panel features. I like the offline voice to text. The project butter improvements sound nice. I'm also interested in the USB Audio for docks. Beyond that, unless I am really missing something, I'm not overly excited about the update. Don't get me wrong, I want it, but it isn't anything I can see myself getting upset about not having right away.

This really reminds me of the 2.0 to 2.1 update. I think this is the reason we didn't see a huge number of updates already. Most manufacturers are going to release 4.1 updates pretty soon.

True - that is probably why they didn't call it 5.0 and stuck with 4.1.
Wish they also bring MAP support for the BT as well.

You're lucky, then. A bunch of us have been having issues in-call, where the sound quality is awful (for both parties) ever since the update.

Yep, in fact many of the updates I saw actually said something to the effect of "updates to support JB".

yeah i'm checking twitter now as well....it's back and forth. I read this from Bigxie aka Fab as some of you know him.

Andrew Xie ‏@bigxie
hehe, Google went tricky and made the OTA update from a non retail image

Andrew Xie ‏@bigxie
Just got out of the gym. I see the OTA is available. Is there a rooted, CWM flashable zip yet?

koush ‏@koush
JellyBean is noticeable smoother. Almost iPhone smooth.

Yeah soon is a broad term. Kind of exciting though. Seems like this whole thing came out of left field pretty fast. Either that or I just haven't been paying close enough attention lately.

I already use Swiftkey, it's great. But the same lag is present in both the Swiftkey and Stock keyboard. It's worst in landscape mode.

I don't use landscape mode, so it's never an issue.

we are discussing 4.1, while many of us are still trying to get out of 4.0.4 fog. VZW sent me a new Galaxy Nexus replacement today and the BT connection preformed the same as my current phone, so I sent the replacement to Samsung to see if they can resolve it.

lol. Well when you do get it flashed, and notice all the differences (UI, transitions, new features, new apps, new widgets, new lockscreen, incredible voice recog and features, and all the little touches), I think you'll quite like it. Can you say "speed that you've yet to experience in a phone"

For me, this is kind of what I believe they meant ICS to be. It's like they pushed out ICS a little early before it was finished and this is what it was supposed to look like and how it was supposed to perform.

Maybe not quite revolutionary, but certainly way more than evolutionary. I'd say "cutting edge" and a huge! update. I can't believe anyone said "incremental" (that goes for myself as well)

edit: and a small note. Force cdma to get 3G as 4G is not working since this is a port. Phone works, sms works, it's pretty nice for an alpha alpha build

Wow, the Google voice search is insane. THAT is what I've been hoping for. I tried a search that has failed for me on the stock 4.0.x roms and custom apps and it went right freakin to it on this. SOLD!!!

Call me crazy but the camera is even faster than before if that's possible. This is nuts. Going to be a lot of happy people. VZW...don't jack this up. People would like this before the snow flies.

Oh it is faster. So is the recents soft key. So is everything. Even the live wallpapers run smooth now

Have you long pressed the home soft key?

I'm more excited for this upgrade than I was for this phones release...
