While it is off topic for this thread, I'll suggest look at Wicked Leaks Wammy Desire tab. At 7.5k shipped, it's an awesome VFM tablet with Hd display, dual core processor, 1 gb RAM and JB!

Just a quick update on the LG 4X's battery life. It drained just 3% in about 9 hrs. Isnt that awesome?

Harshal,

I think 2G is the fundamental reason why the battery is lasting for so long.
My Atrix 2 used to last for 2 days easily with every thing on with 2G.

I turned to 3G, it came down to 1 day!

You may have it keep it plugged all the time if you turned 4g on.

Have you tried switching to 3g/WCDMA only in Settings --> Networks --> Mobile Network ?

Same goes for my Defy too. On 2G it had lasted for 1-1.5 days easily. But on 3G hardly 12-14 hours

Any of the nexus users manually flashed 4.2.x over 4.1.x?

What happens to the sdcard data? Since 4.2 supports different user spaces in tablet version, it creates /sdcard/0 and such spaces for each user, and moves all the content from /sdcard to that. I am worried what will actually happen to the sdcard data if I just go ahead and flash recovery, system and userdata from a 4.2 image.

Please share your workflow, if anyone has successfully done it.
