Having upgraded to 4.2.x now for about a month I have nothing but fustrations about the upgrade. I've had probably 5-6 random reboots where as on 4.1.x I had none. The phone has had problems connecting to data where the only remedy was to reboot. I've also had problems connecting with GPS AND bluetooth where only a reboot would fix things. The OS studders much more than before and (it could be my imagination) it seems some apps run slower than before. With that said if I have to reboot one more time this week I will be downgrading.

BTW I'm stock with bootloader unlocked on yakju.

Like everyone else you should try a fresh install of the factory image wiping everything without restoring any data. It shouldn't matter if you are going to downgrade anyway.

We are many who have had no issues at all, so give it a shot.

Lots of threads already on these issues.

Just downgrade now and save us having to listen to more whining...

If you updated from 4.1 to 4.2 without a full wipe there's potential for a lot to go wrong. There could be some app running as a service that isn't fully compatible with 4.2 causing your issues.
With that being said, I would try fully resetting the device, no need to re-flash the stock image because it's already in place on the device anyway.
Install apps that are known to work on 4.2 ONLY. Then, you can begin testing to see if it becomes stable. After that, do what you want.

Not all of us have the time to look through all the threads to make sure threads aren't duplicate buddy.

Yeah, it's as if someone should add a search button to the forum

But searching takes time...

And it's not like you can make it through a page in either General or Q&A without tripping over a 4.2 whine thread.

if you're on the VZW Galaxy Nexus, then i strongly recommend getting the mmuzzy rom. i think it's made specifically for that carrier/model only. it's been great for me so far. so smooth, no issues thus far!

i don't know how much experience you have with swapping roms, but you should use the Super Wipe utility that mmuzzy recommends.

This guy is correct MMuzzy has been the most stable for Vzn Gnex. I only have a qualm with the GPS, but that's every phone
