Factory Images Released for Verizon Galaxy Nexus [ITL41D]

If you just unlocked your bootloader and are planning to go beyond that with root or a custom ROM, then get to download the factory images that were just released by Google for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. These files will allow you to return your phone back to stock at any moment no matter what you do to it on the software side. Tuck them away and tell the Android Team that you love them.

Download Link – ITL41D (Android 4.0.1)

Via:  Google

    Ok wait so how do I reset my phone exactly using this download? I think I have fallen into a never ending bootloop and desperately need to reset my phone back to factory. Please please help. 

  • Mike Bohde

    Anyone generate a MD5 checksum for this download yet. With something like this I’d like to make sure it’s right.

    • I Am Absurd

      yes, please generate a one-click version for odin.  For the life of me I can’t flash in the fastbooter and my phone is soft-bricked.  I promise to pay it forward.

    I just got mine an hour ago. I LOVE IT. It’s freaking amazing. I had to buy it at full retail, but I got a 32 gig for the $649 price. Was that supposed to happen?

      yeah, all the LTE/CDMA US devices seem to be 32Gb

    Does anyone know if the yakju is the build used in house by google for this version of the phone.  This is a carrier modified release after all.  XDA has shown a lot of yakjuxw and other various customizations that are not trustock.  I would assume if you could change it from mysid to yakju you would be able to get the wallet app from the market since an internal google build should use all of their software

      yakju is a gsm build flashing that onto a mysid (lte) build would be extremely bad plus no version of the gnex has google wallet with out rooting and flashing the hacked version the only device world wide that has it with out hacking is the sprint nexus s 4g

    Does this image re-lock the bootloader so it appears the warranty was never invalidated?

    I just came to see this crap, it looks sheep on the back
    like the bionic and it also looks cheap overall.

    WooHooo!!! Yea. Glad to see it happen. All those nightmare scenarios are gone! Here we go baby. Will we need ODIN for this?

    Ahh feel the warm sweet glow of stock Android OS on some pretty sweet hardware. Team Android rocks!

      I had the same problem, just make sure you have third party cookies enabled and it’ll work.

  • EC8CH

    Thanks for being awesome Google!

  • ScottDaMan

    I’ll wait for the 4.0.2 release.

      That wait will be approx 5 minutes after you boot your new Nexus for the first time.

        Nah man – I’m gonna miss my OG. I just got word that my shipment was 2-day not overnight, so I will spend my last weekend with my OG. I miss the build quality, no doubt about that. My OG just survived a 20 foot drop in my driveway on a ladder!

        I’m no traitor – I’m Android 4L. Same team bro, same team.

          :) I would have loved the nexus if Samsung have made the nexus like the Gs2, but they took a step back. I hope that you enjoy your nexus and ICS. I played a little bit with it and it seems pretty cool, i hope all the bugs are fixed.

    I was just looking for this. How would I install the image in the case that I’ve rooted and want to go back to stock?

    I love you, Android Team. <3

    Hey Kellex, would you mind reposting links to your various ICS/Nexus walkthroughs?  Now that I actually have the phone, I’d like to look at them again.  A simple search for “Nexus” on the site just brings up awful memories of “IT’S ON ITS WAY….oh wait, no it’s not”, and I just don’t think my psyche can handle that again.

    • Matthew Rosidivito

      I’ll make that a motion.

      I second the motion…motion passed

      • planetes42

        Great, would the gentleman from …. somewhere on the west coast … care to respond?

      By the way, thank you so much for posting these images.  I tried to add that “search button” update without installing his actual rom and ended up without any buttons or notifications.  It was *not awesome*.  I finally just reflashed this and all seems to be well again…..for now

    Thanks Google!

    But it’s the old image?  Why wouldn’t they have ICL53F published?

    • John

      It’s a minor update anyway…not a big dela, imo.

    Oh the joys of owning a NEXUS!

    Glad this came out today!  Way to go Google!  I was afraid that Verizon was somehow going to stall or prevent this.
