I downloaded the 4.2.2 OTA and installed it via CWM yesterday. I turned back on all location services. Thus far, no reboots. I'm checking Catlog periodically. Plus I also set an Astrid task to be due today. The tell-tale sign of a reboot for me (even when I'm not looking) is the fact that the Astrid reminder will be gone. One day isn't really a significant enough amount of time to declare this fixed. If there's still no rebooting after a week or two, I'll feel more comfortable declaring it fixed.

After disabling all location services in 4.2.1, I only had one reboot over about a month and a half, as compared to a day and a half before. That one reboot was while watching a YouTube video. Most recently, I allowed location via WiFi but left GPS off. Things still stayed stable. Now with 4.2.2 I've got GPS back on. I may even put an HD Widget in the lock screen to see if I can tempt fate further

I've never experienced a random reboot.

Turned wireless location service back on and enabled Google Now after getting 4.2.2 update . I have HD Wigets installed and use their lock screens. 5 hours after it rebooted. So back to disabling location service for me I guess.

I haven't had a single reboot since the 4.2.2 update, I also have HD widgets and use the lock screen.

Went from a couple reboots per day before the update to two weeks without one after. Thought all was well and now 3 reboots in 24 hours. No new apps installed recently, but of course there are often updates.

Just witnessed my first random reboot. I'm using HD widgets. Noticed others said the same.

I only use my Nexus 7 on the weekends but it reboots every few hours on 4.2.2. Pretty frustrating. I removed HD Widgets and it looked ok for awhile but the reboots returned. I think any widget that updates periodically seems to cause it.
