Jelly Bean 4.2.2 overall impressions (update: my GApps work fine now but feel free to discuss other things like screen-calibration, battery life etc..)

What has been your experience after receiving the JB 4.2.2 update (any device). Chime in!

Personally, it looks like the update broke my Gmail and GTalk. Need to mention though, that I cleared my Google Services Framework data to get the OTA so that could have something to do with it. Specifically, GTalk won't load my contacts and Gmail just crashes 5 secs after opening no matter how many times I try it. Any thoughts? (even if they are Service Framework Data related and not 4.2.2 related, thanks.)

Note: I have a Galaxy Nexus.

Update: I remembered reading somewhere that after deleting Services Framework data, logging into PlayStore (via browser) usually solves some problems. I did and Gtalk works fine now :). Even logged into Gmail on the browser but no dice :( It still crashes the moment I try to sync it (it's not on auto-sync)

Update 2: I closed the browser and reopened it and logged into Gmail. Then restarted my phone and Gmail seems to work fine now. phew!
