    I've been watching for it too... havn't seen it yet. I did unlock my bootloader last night (but still have stock recovery / unrooted)... so I'm hoping I'll still receive the OTA.

    Just an unlocked boot loader should not stop you from updating....but I make no promises ;)

    I just had the update pop-up, so I selected restart & install. It rebooted into recovery (TWRP) and looked like it installed. I rebooted the system with no error messages. Opened the Settings > About Tablet and it still says 4.2 (not 4.2.1) and the build number is still JOP40C (not JOP40D), but I have a December in my Add Events for people in my contacts.

    I am rooted running stock with the newest TWRP recovery.

    Added: If I try and hit the Check Now button in System updates, I get system is up to date (LIAR!!!)

    It wont let me into recovery. When i get to the bootloader, sometimes it wont have the arrows to select anything other than "Start." When i CAN select "Recovery" it doesnt go into Recovery. It goes to the "Google" loading screen then same error screen it always goes to.

    Error screen is small open android with "No command" underneath

    EDIT

    Wtf? I Go To try again...and Android was loaded. So bizzare. Its working now

    I just received the 4.2.1 OTA update. I am unlocked and rooted.....but no custom recovery like CWM. I preserved my root with Voodoo OTA rootkeeper as soon as I unlocked and rooted out of the box. My tablet info is version 4.2.1 and build JOP40D after the OTA, so no issues with the install. I lost root after installing the update but I was able to get it back with Voodoo. I verified root with root checker and terminal emulator and installed a couple of apps to make sure they got root access. Everything is good. This has been the easiest device I have ever had to unlock, root and update.

    I'm still not seeing the OTA... I'm only unlocked. Stock recovery, not rooted. :( Will I just have to install manually? Sheesh.

    I want a Nexus 10 but have read that many apps crashes and problems, some blaming 4.2
    So, has the 4.2.1 fixed crash, freezes, people have been reporting?
    Is Nexus 10 now running smooth in general?

    I just got the 4.2.1 update. I mean literally. It was a less than a minute affair... Though I notice no difference - at least as of now.

    Edit: I read that this update does not do much aside from fixing the month issue, but for some reason the interface feels a bit smoother and so does chrome. Pure placebo effect I suppose.
