Ever since I installed the update I've been having random odd issues. For instance, I was on a call and when I pulled the phone away from my face the screen wouldn't wake back up. Also I get random system freezes. Also, I've had 2 random reboots as well.

Re: 1/30 - Galaxy Nexus Software Update - L700GA02 (Android 4.2.1)

Random issues like those are unfortunately usually fixed by a factory reset as they are most likely caused by an issue with a installed app. None of those are known issues with 4.2.1.

New issues now. I pulled my phone off the charger this morning and it wouldn't turn on, ended up having to pull the battery. This isn't the first time its "died" with  full charge. Also more random reboots, UI tears, UI lag and screen freezes. This is also after a factory reset.

Also, my phone is now getting hotter then ever. The processor reached 130° while I was simply browsing the web over 3G.

Anyone else experiencing issues using the hot spot feature? I use it to connect to XBox but after the update I can no longer do this.

CaMelGuY1337,

Thank you for reaching out to us with this issue and this does bring major concerns.  At this time we have not receive reports of a trend of these issues you have been experiencing after the update.  Not many customers have received the update yet so it may be some time before we receive more information on any issues with the update.  Generally the troubleshooting you have performed already (power cycle and reboot to factory settings) are steps we would take over the phone or here on community.  We would recommend at this time to allow one of our in-store technicians to evaluate your device and review these especially with your device over-heating at such extreme temperatures which can start to affect your battery quality.  Locate the closest repair center here http://www.sprintstorelocator.com and let us know the outcome as we rely on our customers' feedback.

GigaWat,

Sorry for any delays on your previous update.  OTA can take anywhere between 10-21 days which can vary for all updates based on size of updates, changes that the update perform, number of users, etc.  Let us know if you don't receive within the designated timeframe.

cocorunner,

We would be happy to look into this matter to see what's going on.  We don't have any reports of a known issue with this feature at this time.  What errors do you receive when attempting to utilize your hotspot (phone and/or Xbox)?
