Not sure I understand why you would have converted system apps to users apps, but in any case, I would just flash the stock system, boot and radio images, accept the update, and then convert whatever system apps you want back to user apps. I don't believe you will lose any data.

Default jwr66y for galaxy nexus discovered

someone posted the link to the OTA zip for the galaxy nexus here:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2#post44830452

DON'T FLASH IT TO YOUR N4 OF COURSE, THAT LINK IS FOR A DIFFERENT PHONE AND WILL BRICK YOURS

I took a peek at the zip though, and it seems to patch a whole bunch of apps and recovery, so looks like we need to follow the advice and revert our system to stock when our own OTA for the Nexus 4 comes along so it applies cleanly.

Dont know about you guys, bit I just received the ota notification:

After the download, it started the update then i got an error (my nexus 4 is rooted with cwm but no custom ROM).

Turned off and on, all the apps were optimized on the boot up, then my cel got up just fine.

Could this small update also possibly implement the WiFi sleep fix?
