    Yippee…. now I have Jelly Bean on both my Verizon Galaxy Nexus and my Transformer Prime.
    When I went to update first thing this morning, the update told me that that the file could not be found, but 2 hours later, the update file was there.
    Now to play with it to see what happens with my programs.
