    Anyone care to guess how long before we see 4.1 on the Verizon "Nexus"?

    I sometimes wonder if it's worth leaving my unlimited data and switch to a GSM Nexus to enjoy direct updates.

    My money is on never with verizon Gnex. If I didn't have the unlimited data I would have dropped them like a used J-hat already!

    If you are unlocked, you can get it now, I've been on it all night and its running great.

    If you are waiting for OTA, at least August I would say

    Don't wait for Verizon. Root that sucker! Like William T. Riker said, there's ROM's already with EVERYTHING WORKING.

    Bashing Verizon is fun but since when do they have a reputation of not getting out updates. They are not TIMELY, but they do send out updates. Shoot, the OG Incredible just got an update this week. Will be interesting to see how far behind they are on them.

    I'm sticking with a September release.

    For those who already have JB, can you tweak the Google search bar or change it back to just an outline? I don't like seeing a white bar across the top of the screen.

    Well its transparent now in JB

    Transparent yes but the inside of the box still has white shading. I was hoping to be able to make only a white outline with no fill inside the search box like pre-JB versions. I think it blends into the homescreen better. I'm picky :D

    I am running 4.1.

    i posted a thread on XDA asking how to go from yakju to JB...

    upgrading from Yakju to Jelly bean... how? - xda-developers

    I don't know who built the build I was told to install using the Galaxy Nexus Toolkit, but it is working, still using the yakju radio though... and my nexus is not rooted.

    I don't want to root my Vzw GNex. If I root it, I can't rent movies via the Play Store as the Play Movies become unavailable when rooted. Unless there a way to get Jelly Bean on my Next without rooting, I gotta wait.

    Even the 4.0.4 in-call bluetooth issue?

    I never had the issue in 4.0.4 so I couldn't tell you personally but Bluetooth audio definitely works fine in 4.1. Then again, I was rooted and going by the looks of it, Bluetooth was a stock issue.

    Yeah, still waiting to hear if JB fixes the mid-call muting bug...

    Could someone running 4.1 please answer a quick question. Does it support groups? As in allow you to do anything with groups. 4.0 allows groups but they're completely pointless.

    Also wanna throw in that while Verizon took the longest to put 4.0.4 on their Nexus, the build on the VZW Nexus is in fact a newer build than the 4.0.4 that is on the GSM Nexus; a lot of people don't know that.

    According to the following link, it's still happening. I'm giving up and going to the RAZR Maxx...sigh. I'm going to escalate as far up as I can go as I also want a credit for the $100+ in accessories I've bought for the Nexus that I'll now have to purchase again.

    Let me know how it goes with the accessories. I've bought a few too and would love to return them or exchange them.

    Good luck with the accessories. I am sure your contract is specific as to what they will do. They do require at least 1 if not 2 replacements before they usually move you to another phone and that assumes a problem they internally admit is a defect in the phone.

    Absent of that, they usually will let you make a lateral move of phone (preowned) but there is little chance they pay for accessories you bought.

    OK, so what's the easiest way to root the Nexus (VZW)? I am reading the How-To's and I hardly understand half of it. Seems like my locked bootloader Droid X was easier.

    I used the Wug's toolkit method. Went super easy.
