    Question Unlocked, but not rooted? Will I get OTA JB?

    A couple of months ago, I used wugfresh toolkit to unlock the bootloader, and I thought, root my phone to manually update to 4.0.4 (Verizon Galaxy Nexus, Knoxville, TN, USA) I just downloaded and tried to use Titanium backup, and also ROM Manager, but I get a message saying that my phone is not rooted.
    I thought that in addition to unlocking the bootloader, the phone must also be rooted when I updated (manually) to 4.0.4.
    My question is, will I get the Verizon OTA upgrade to JB like all other Verizon customers, or not because I manually unlocked the bootloader and manually upgraded to 4.0.4 (even though I evidently didn't also root the phone)?

    I used to upgrade to 4.0.4:
    12f767e7a5d0.signed-mysid-IMM76K-from-ICL53F.12f767e7.zip
    IMM76K_RADIOS_BOOTLOADER.zip

    My Verizon Nexus (Knoxville, TN, USA)
    Android Version: 4.0.4
    Baseband Version: I515.09 V.F04/I515.FC05
    Kernal Version: 3.0.8-gda6252b android-build@vpbs1 #1
    SMP PREEMPT Fri Apr 13 11:35:09 PDT
    Build Number: IMM76K

    Forgive me, but even thought I was able to update to 4.0.4 on my own, I'm not experienced at this. I don't understand what you mean by "key is having stock recovery". Would I still have this 'stock recovery', or is there something that I would need to do considering that my phone is unlocked, but not rooted to get the OTA update from Verizon (whenever they finally decide to send it)?

    If you are not rooted you'll be fine, you will just have to wait for the OTA.. Verizon isn't a carrier I'm real familiar with so not sure if your phone is GSM/HSPA+ or CDMA

    Just read up again.. you have clockwork recovery? not 100% sure that's stock.. smarter peeps will chime in. I had CWM on mine and had to flash it back to stock and unroot to get the update.

    Thanks. My phone is CDMA.
    The clockwork file was included when I downloaded the other files to upgrade to 4.0.4. don't know what or why...

    To check whether or not clockworkmod is flashed or not, you can power down your phone...then hold both volume keys and then hold the power button. At the bootloader menu, press volume down twice until you see "recovery mode", and press the power button to select it. What does it show at the screen after you select recovery mode?

    If it's stock recovery, you should see an android laying down with a red exclamation point.

    After restart in Recovery mode, it first showed 'Google' and the symbol of the open lock as usual, but the the little green guy on his back with a red exclamation mark came on, so I do have stock recovery.
    Had to remove the battery to restart my phone.
    Thanks!

    No prob...so it sounds like you should be good to go for the OTA update. If not, and the update fails to install or something, you know where to come if you need any help

    If the update fails, sounds like CWM will be the culprit.. it will show on the screen. Then it's just a matter of flashing back to stock and checking for the update again.. earlier today I grabbed the OTA and it failed twice before it dawned on me I had to back to stock. You'll be OK!!
