Woke up to the update prompt this morning. My phone is totally stock, didn't clear framework or anything. Installed fine over 4G (wifi wasn't on) in about 10 minutes.

Default Finally at 4.2.2!

Got my update early this morning. I was on wifi, and just went to settings and checked for updates.

I kept trying the services framework trick yesterday over 3G/4G/WiFi but that didn't help. Today I got the OTA update without any workaround.

I'm in west of Boston, and got my device ~December 2011, in case location and/or age matter.

So does this mean I can't get it any sooner than they give it? Clearing Google services framework... Is that only effective after it's been pushed (IMEInis selected), but before you are notified?

Clearing Google Services Framework isn't smart. It breaks push notifications on your devices and can cause other problems. That's a very fundamental system service.

Interesting, considering many suggest to do so in order to get updates sooner. I'll stick with you oldblue!

Yeah, Google Services Framework is a very important system service. Myself and a few other people always shout this from the rooftops whenever there's an OTA but those threads move so fast, the warnings get lost in the ether.

Basically when you do that, your system has to request a brand new unique device ID from Google, which means that all your apps which use push notifications (like Facebook, Twitter, Foursqure, Google+, etc.) will all stop working until you clear data on each app individually and set it up again. Some people also report that clearing the Google Services Framework can break the Play Store as well. Probably a good idea to just download the OTA file and flash it manually via ADB in stock recovery, or just be patient and wait a day or two until you get the OTA notification.

Surprised Verizon didn't put a note with the release to delete/add your exchange account if your battery goes dead 10 minutes after you upgrade. Boy that sucker got hot and wiped out a full battery in no time. Seems to be better afterwards though...
