    Not my work, this is from bigrushdog on XDA

    PLEASE be aware that flashing a 4.2 rom will change the location of stuff stored on the GNex "sd card" so if you go to restore from TWRP, TWRP cannot see the backups you have on your phone since it's looking at a different directory than where your backups are stored. I'm sure this will be fixed shortly, but please be aware of this prior to flashing. If the story changes, I will update this post.

    UPDATE TWRP has been updated and this now appears to be a non-issue, but I haven't actually tried it yet. Use GooManager to install the latest TWRP.

    Wouldn't flash? Did it give you an error? Could have been a bad download.

    4.2 is great. Don't believe the naysayers.

    Huh, I've been hesitant to try because of the mixed reviews. I have been thinking about giving it a shot, but I like having some customization options and I don't think there is a set of inverted gapps that works yet with 4.2....so I'm likely going to stay on 4.1.2 until all that happens.

    Where did you see that about CM? I think it's weird that we didn't get a "stable" build of 10.0 but the other GNex versions did. Not that it really matters because I've never had any issues, just doesn't make a lot of sense.

    I have 4.2 on my Nexus7. The clock looks like a kindergartner designed it as does the quick settings icons not to mention the icons don't toggle. The lockscreen widgets are a mess. And the multiuser options are playing havack with storage management. Fun to play with on my tablet but I'm not putting it in my phone yet. The good: the keyboard (LOVEit) and the camera but go get the gapps. I also have some lag and screen flicker that I didn't have before. I factory reset to make sure that was not causing issues. Meh at least for me.

    Same here. I plan to wait until most of the options are ported over to the 4.2 base.
    To bad they didn't do the notification toggles as well as the development community.
