So you guys are saying a rooted and unlocked (but otherwise standard) yakju Nexus wont get the OTA update? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of a nexus?

Will relocking my bootloader make a difference? I'm not giving up root, I'll wait and install manually if I have to do that.

If you're rooted you may want to just go ahead and install the AOSP compiled version over here.

what if the bootloader is unlocked but not rooted? i unlocked the bootloader to get yakju, will i have to relock it?

You ****ed up Google - as always (lately).

Cool. I don't mind if I have to reroot after the update but getting the OTA and not having to do a wipe will be the easiest option for me (and the half dozen people I know that bought a GN and rely on me for tech support...)

if you guys have stock 4.0.2 but are just unlocked and rooted you can get updates just fine(you'll just have to reroot it after).

If you have the incorrect boot loader, radio, or recovery the update will probably end with an error and not flash.
