Re: We are waiting for "Android 4.1 JB", When is it coming?

So sent this to VZW Official Twitter account few days back, "VerizonWireless Nexus S now getting Jelly Bean. When does the VZW Galaxy Nexus get Jelly Bean? It's about time....#JellyBeanOnVZWGalNex"

Next day morning got a response from @VZWSupport "We haven't announced Jelly Bean for any of our devices. Keep an eye on for the latest. ^MS"

So I replied back..."VZWSupport, Google already so publicly announced Jelly Bean on all Galaxy Nexus. Does that not cover VZW GalNex?#JellyBeanOnVZWGalNex "

And got another reply back! "Verizon Wireless has not announced availability of Jelly Bean on any devices yet. ^MS"

Finally I replied back..."VZWSupport JellyBeanOnVZWGalNex Isn't VZW GalNex a Nexus experience device? Why hold back an update Google provides?"

Obviously did not get any response back to this! If you all have a twitter account why not ask them? Maybe a lot of folks asking will get us some answers? Please include hash tag (#JellyBeanOnVZWGalNex)

I don't get it.  So many of you all are so impatient to get the latest and greatest update for Android.  Why do you care?  So many of us have had Jellybean on our phones for weeks.  If you don't care enough to learn and go through the process of unleashing your phones the latest and greatest update for Android is going to make ZERO difference for you.

Cheers,

Because some of us don't want to void our warranty.  When I switched from AT&T to Verizon I was lied to.  I was told that because the SGN was a "Pure Google" phone, any updates that came from Google would IMMEDIATELY be pushed down to this phone.  Now I'm discovering that was is in fact a LIE.  Verizon technicians themselves told me that they would be delaying the Android 4.1 update until they have a chance to test it.  Meanwhile, other phone companies (Sprint, T-mobile and unlocked phones) are getting the update.  >Rooting comments removed to comply with VZW ToS<

@davegr I don't get it why do you even bother to troll on this thread when you already have Jelly Bean for weeks. I care because I am technical enough to know what Jelly Beans offers. I am particularly interested in Google Now. It's not that I don't care to learn enough to unlock, root and flash my phone, but I would rather not. There are some really great ROMS out there but truth be said, all of them do still have some of their own quirks. Why should I not stay on the Official Google image and keep my warranty. This is after all a Nexus Experience Device. If Galaxy Nexus GSM and Nexus S GSM can get the updates and if Google already announced Jelly Bean with such fan and fare for Galaxy Nexus why should I have to wait ( if you are listening)? Again, I am just voicing my opinion and so are you. Just because we believe in getting the official update, does not mean that we are any lesser or don't know what we are doing. Give everyone some credit, don't assume.

The main reason to get a nexus device is to put unofficial software on it not to have Verizon's crapy bloat that's why the Boot loader is so easily unlocked. If your not going to do this you should have just got a razr . After the data and upgrade fiasco that will be waiting for me after my nexus contract is up (if I want to keep my unlimited data I will need to pay full price for my next phone) I will be moving to sprint or straight talk unless Verizon trays to please me in some way.

Not all versions of the GSM has gotten 4.1.1...  A lot of people "hacked" their phones to get it from Google or put it on themselves.  Only the ones sold in the play store have gotten the update.  All CDMA versions which WORK DIFFERENTLY than GSM on the underlying code has not gotten 4.1.1.  As I said BEFORE the CDMA version comes out that there is going to be a difference on the update process.  It is how Qualcomm has the code setup which requires multiple signatures to make the radio work correctly.  If any of the code is modified well you need signatures again.  With the way a lot of people complaining about signal issues and voice dropping on the CDMA/LTE version I can see a delay.

Some of the international GSM Galaxy Nexus versions have gotten the update.  I have the yakju version and got the update without a hack two or three weeks ago.

That's what I said.  Not all GSM versions of the Galaxy Nexus has gotten the update.  By your use of the word some validates what I am saying.  A lot of people changed their firmware to the play store version to get the update because they got tired of waiting.
