Thanks!  That's good to know!  Seems like it'll be awesome on Galaxy Nexus but Nexus S4g is so slow in comparison I'm wondering if Jellybean will just slow down Nexus S even more.  What are your thoughts?

Jelly Bean has peformance tweaks that Google refers to as "buttery smooth".  I've been running Codename Android for about a month now, and I can say there is a fluidity with the new OS that ICS lacked.  It really is smooth, with no stuttering at all.  I would think you would see an increase rather than decrease in performance, but then someone who has ran it on the older device would be better able to speak to this. 

What is really amazing is how rapidly Google has changed Android from the Froyo days to Jelly Bean.  It is like a new OS in so many ways, unlike a certain fruity company who does little tweaks and the masses of iSheep salivate.    Hahaha, is it safe to post that on an Android thread?

There seems to be no problems I've read with the blackberry Play book and it pretty much has the same specs

I'm at work right now without a personal laptop and no access to my cell phone even, so there's little I can do at the moment.  I'll see if I can muster up a few minutes to browse around xda for you.  I'll post if I find anything.

Re: Galaxy Nexus yet to receive "Jelly Bean" update!

Just happened to be in android central forums looking for an app to make my soft keys hideable and saw a forum post. Guy said he did manual check and got it so I tried. Downloading now but wishing I was at work with freetoaster cuz I'm bringing it down over 3g. I think everybody is getting it cuz I'm outside New Orleans and the ppl that have been posting in the forums have been from all over the country.

Btw, does anyone here know where I can find the app or .apk that allows the soft keys to be hidden without rooting?

I am very sad I ever messed with my phone. Now I am unable to get back to stock and get the ota download. Oh well, that is what I get for messing around with it in the first place. Sucky mac!
