There was a change to the Google drivers page that now includes the CDMA and LTE drivers for the VZW GNex. ¬†Yeah you read the title and that first sentence right. ¬†Not sure if NFC will work since that is listed separate for the Nexus S but not listed for the Galaxy Nexus. ¬†The good news is though a clean AOSP source build will have working CDMA LTE. ¬†Expect the Jelly Bean ROMs to take off now that the source is live and you can pull the binaries. ¬†There is one thing though that everyone should know before jumping for joy. ¬†We are missing some files yet… (more…)

A few weeks ago I posted a link to some of the CM9 themes out there and have kept looking for new ones since those released.  I am pleased to write that there are lot more of them now and I have been trying a few here and there.  I am hoping to try a few and then either weekly or possibly monthly write up a post of my favorite ones.  Here are a few that I found in the last few weeks that I think are worth a mention.

For those that were waiting to see if IMM76K would come back to the Google servers it appears the link is working again.  I have not done any MD5 checking to see if it hashes out the same yet but assume since it is the same link that it is the same file (Windows Compare from a command line says they compare OK though).  Hopefully this means the VZW has signed off on the update and anyone that did not use the instructions here: http://rants.strifejester.com/2012/05/01/imm76k-direct-for-verizon-galaxy-nexus/ will be getting the OTA shortly.  This also should help alleviate worries that using the manual instructions would take you off the official update path.

So everyone has been waiting for the IMM76K update today and here it is. (more…)

Over the weekend it looks like a few people got their hands on the 4.0.4 release for the Galaxy nexus. ¬†This includes a new radio and bootloader. ¬†Does this mean the OTA is coming soon? There was no leak of 4.0.3 for the Galaxy Nexus but from everything I have gathered 4.0.3 was only for the Nexus S and 4.0.4 was the next planned release ¬†for the Galaxy Nexus. ¬†There was also a lot of heated discussions over Google’s statements of support on CDMA devices. I am not going to get into the CDMA issue here because it’s a lengthy topic and I want to see what it leads to. I will however post some links of the radio and bootloader for everyone to download.

So you knew it was only a matter of time until someone got the Galaxy Nexus and dumped everything that makes it tick. ¬†They have already rooted it and have now taken that one step further by posting the boot, system and recovery image. ¬†Read on for the files. (more…)
