    No. Not unless you run the stock rom.

    Sounds like same build, radio and bootloader as previously leaked.

    To install this you need stock bootloader, stock radios, no uninstalled or frozen apps or the update will fail.

    Yeah it seems this is the same build as leaked before. However like Unforgiven mentioned i like to run the stock build for a while just to see where it's at. Also it may help in answering people's questions that don't root and rom.

    Isn't it funny that we have to miss jelly bean just to wait and get it again!

    All my apps are downloading and I keep checking for the update every 2 minutes or so. I hit the update button and it'll pause for a second and I'm like YES!, then no.

    I have been running stock JB on my N7 and noticed differences between that and CNA on my phone. They weren't CNA tweaks either, they were things like the stock keyboard is a touch different. I'd like to see and compare.
    Ugh, just checked. 35 apps autoupdating over weak 3G.:motz:

    I'll have to go check my phone! Strange that there weren't even any rumors flying that the update was coming.

    Strange they release this at the same time as the iPhone 5.

    This seems to be the weird thing about the update, but it seems to be helping others out.

    Give that a shot and see if that works for you. If not you may just have to wait until someone grabs the link directly.

    Not sure what to tell you if being on WiFi isn't helping. It may be a regional or light roll out. Also i hope they didn't just decide to push this for poops and grins because it's I5 day. In other words i hope this build is not a step back.

    Thanks. I've tried it twice now. I try again later... but you might be right in that I just have to wait my turn or wait for the link.

    Thanks!

    On the DroidLife site, the snapshot of the update screen specifically called out it being wifi update only until oct 1. it listed it as 146mb, and it being i5 day might be the reason. I've tried this several times on wifi, no joy in the minneapolis area. oh well!

    Yup screenshot below says Wi-Fi only until October 1st, which is weird.

    I am sure before the end of the day someone will have found the download link so you can do it manually.

    It was confirmed that this is the same release that was leaked a couple of weeks ago IIRC, so those download links should work.

    For those who have Jelly Bean... does it improve the battery performance?

    Didn't notice a battery performance increase, but it didn't get worse and everything else got way better, performance, screen refresh time, camera focus, etc.

    It's hard to tell, but I think I have better battery life on JB than I did on ICS, but then again I am using optimized kernels, etc.

    Oh yeah, I was too. I forgot as I was using Franco's kernel flashing tool and it updated the kernel automatically.:rolleyes:

    Thanks. I've had a hell of a time with my battery for some reason, even have the extended battery.

    Might have to do some investigation on how to change some settings.

    I'm kind of new to Android, had the OG Droid, went back to iPhone 4 and now on VZW Galaxy Nexus.
