I got bored and went ahead and updated the boot.img etc to add root to stock jellybean. I flashed and tested with Root Checker from the market. Feel free to use and update OP. This will only work with jb, it will not boot with ics.

Did you update to Jellybean before you rooted? The files he linked are for Ice Cream Sandwich and will not work with Jellybean. Try flashing my attachment above.

Thank you I will try to flash that one but now is another issue I came across I try to go back and flash that old one and now I'm getting the triangle with the "!" on it so I can't go into recovery mode. Any advice on that thanks in advance.

Never mind its been fixed. Finally rooted. Thanks again team. Is there an update for getting free hotspot because the video that I followed is not working any other methods? Thanks.

Is there root for the stock 4.2 yet? Or do I need to unroot and re-root

I can't even install SDK Manager.
I click on the exe and I see a quick flash of a program and then nothing. I tried to run as Admin and same thing.
My GS3 was easier than this. My friends with non-Sprint GNexs said theirs came unlocked. Boo hoo.
I do have JB already installed, but that should have nothing to do with installing something on my PC.
Ooooo. Don't flame me yet. I just saw the next download in the list... I have a feeling JAVA is going to fix it all.

Fixed. Maybe put some of these instructions in the OP? I doesn't say anything about it in the video... just in the description.

Do you still have the bootloader unlocked? I have spent the last 12 hours Odin flashing every stock firmware version because I tried a random ROM and I lost all signal/modem isn't working suddenly... But I just realized that I never re-locked my bootloader so I haven't technically flashed a full stock build yet because of one fastboot or adb command that I can't remember because I forgot the most minute detail.. .what's that lock command?? Is it fastboot OEM lock? Damn I wasted hours... I am slippin' as I get older
