    Thank goodness I have a nexus. Obviously the gnex hardware is inferior but it will run the 4.2 update just fine.

    Just flashed the 4.2 keyboard and camera app. They're both pretty cool, if anyone wants to try they're on xda and Android police. Sorry can't link because I'm on my phone.

    Is the swype function pretty good? My issue with swype was that it was great when it worked....i could type so fast it was ridiculous. But when it would give me incorrect predictions, it would take longer to correct than it would with the standard keyboard....so I just roll with the stock keyboard.

    The swype function is actually pretty decent. I know what you're talking about when Swype would predict words incorrectly, but I don't really run into that issue using the 4.2 keyboard.

    Yes I agree the 4.2 Camera, Gmail, Gallery and Keyboard are nice, but how do I get the Swype feature to work lol? Do I need to turn it on somewhere?

    Use titanium to freeze the old keyboard then reboot. That should work assuming you already flashed the keyboard.

    After flashing the 4.2 keyboard, go to settings>language & input, and under "Keyboard & Input Methods", click on "Default", and choose "Android Keyboard".

    Hey Frenchy and Mizzou! Some familiar faces. Not meaning to hijack the thread but I just bought a Galaxy Nexus (Samsung) for Tmobile. If you don't mind, I may need some help figuring out ROMs/Kernels and such. Still have my OG EVO and using as a tablet/phone (groove ip only). Almost got the Nexus 4 but I got a good price on the GNex and I really need to save money. I should get it by Thursday.
