Although it's far from a confirmation that the reboots have been fixed in 4.2.2, I just updated 11 apps while browsing different tabs in Chrome, and the N10 handled it fine and didn't reboot. This is something that I've noticed cause a reboot on multiple occasions in the past. Hopefully it's a good sign.
Touching wood!!!

Nexus 10 user here that has at least daily freezes or reboots on 4.2.1, even with location services disabled and completely abandoning Chrome.

I got the 4.2.2 OTA and installed it today. I am going to keep location services off and keep using Firefox instead of Chrome so the use case remains the same for a week or so. I will make sure to update with my experience on 4.2.2.

If all goes well, I will turn on location services and begin using Chrome as well and I will check back in after some time with that configuration.

There was some postings from Google developer(s) saying that they found a cause of the Null Pointer Exception (NPE) errors that were causing the random reboots. The fix(es) are applied in Android v4.2.2 release. Let's hope it really catches all the causes of the random reboots.

I got this from postings in the Google support groups forums here:

https://productforums.google.com/for...le/VFYnt7uN9d0

They say it is fixed. Location manager was misbehaving and causing activity manager parcel() method to get NPE errors. So according to this, it seems the location manager was at least the culprit of many random reboots. (But in my take, other misbehaving apps caused reboots too). But they also said they added the catching of errors in the activity manager so that it will not reboot on NPE I think...
I hope it is truly fixed now.

This is all promising news, let's hope we see the back of these reboots.
But alas, still waiting for my N10 to receive the update.

Keep us posted on the progress of this issue from your experience.

I've been running the 4.2.2 update since yesterday and i have around 10hrs use. Battery is greatly improved, doesn't get as warm as it did before while just using falcon, g+, chrome beta. Since the update I've had location on and so far no reboots.

My reboot experience was one every two days (4.2.1).

I'm now on a rooted 4.2.2 (no wipe) and I'm fine after a couple days of normal use.
Performances are the same.
At the moment NO REBOOT. Let's wait at least a week of solid use to be happy!!
Ciao.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but while I haven't had any reboots - my N10 just froze up on me while in the Play Store app, had to force reboot.
Just updated to 4.2.2 this morning. Not a good sign.

My one freeze since updating to 4.2.2 has been in the Play Store app as well. Or more precisely, when exiting the app. Hasn't locked up yet in Chrome though.
