More Factory Images Released for Verizon Galaxy Nexus [ICL53F]

And two hours after releasing the Android 4.0.1 factory images for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, Google drops the Android 4.0.2 images on us. The build for 4.0.2 is ICL53F and is the build your phone will be on once it updates shortly after activation. Just like the other the file, you will want to tuck this one away for safe keeping in case you ever run into issues with your phone. We will have instructions on how to flash these files at a later date.

    Finally went ahead and bought this BEAST today, very happy with it.  Having a hard time getting the battery charged as I have not been able to keep my hands off it.  OG Droid, thanks for the good times, you will forever have a place in my heart.

    So Im stuck in an endless boot of clockwork recovery. Meaning it just keeps booting to that recovery. Any idea when you will post steps on how to use this file?

  • QtDL

    So this is the file I am going to need when I F#&% up my phone trying to root it myself? Lol.

    Not trying to flame or troll here, just want to say how nice it is to be able to get updates directly from Google. Yes, I’m sure Verizon is testing 4.1 as we speak, but isn’t it nice to have an option to get images and such directly from Google? Sweet. A nice relief to say the least.

    Exactly how hard is this to do for someone who has never rooted or installed custom ROMs on an Android device before? I basically opened up a bricked Galaxy Nexus today (constant rebooting / stuck in boot animation) & I’m at a loss as of what to do.

      At this point, you would be best to take it back to the store.

    I am so jealous… Can’t wait till I get my phone next week.

    Seems pretty fricken awesome to me!!! Though, I will say I’m a little disappointed in the battery life. But, then again…the things been on since I had it at 9:00 am! I was the FIRST in my town to get one! 

    • Longduckdong

      Someone should get this man a medal….he was FIRST in Whereverton, Wherever to get the GNex.

  • Rob

    I played with the demo unit today at vzw with full intention to buy this thing but I’m pretty disappointed guys.  I thought with no skin and ICS, the phone would just be blazing fast, but it just seemed slow when exploring the interface.  For example, turning the phone from portrait to landscape in keyboard mode took forever; seriously as slow as my dying POS Iphone 3G (which I’m dying to get ride of).  I compared it to the HTC Rezound since it was right next to it, and the Rezound was so much faster.

    What gives?  I’m so confused right now as to what phone to get now, as I was dead set on getting the Nexus.  Is the SGS2 any quicker?

      The beauty of this is that devs will optimize the new kernels and source code to make an overclocked, undervolted thing of beauty.

        I hope you’re right lol

    • Anonymous

      I know exactly what you’re talking about, I was pretty disappointed with the UI speed as well.  The Razr and Rezound are far superior in terms of flipping through home screens/browser zoom etc.

      • Rob

         have you used the SGS2 at all?  any better/faster, even with Touchwiz?  I’m considering getting the HSPA version on ATT but they don’t carry it in stores around me!  Only the Skyrocket which is a bit too wide for me.

        • Anonymous

          Haven’t had a chance to get my paws on a SGS II.  It may work faster, but tbh what is the point of upgrading if you’re not on 4g?  I used the browser on all 3 phones and I swear it was faster than my computer, ridiculous.

  • Rzm1986

    This phone is awesome. I had the razr for a few weeks knowing i was gonna pay the restocking fee. Im loving this screen and ICS. Anyone who keeps the Razr is dumb.

    • Anonymous

      I want to go back to the Razr, this thing is disappointing, the reception is horrid. I screwed myself over and returned a good device. Now I can’t go back!! 

      • Wsiembida

        Yes you can you have til Jan 15th to return it and repay restock fee I traded the rezound in on it and made sure I could go back. And right on the new receipt it states may return until Jan 15th . But I have had all the top 4g phones on Verizon (don’t ask how) and I finally found the one that has wowed me the most and I’m the most impressed with. Es rezound is bad ass but it needed pure android like gnex and I would have kept that phone. But anyways you can still return it up until January 15th.

    Do these factory images need to be saved onto our phone or just saved onto our computer? I just don’t want to mess something up and not be able to access them. 

  • RaptorOO7

    I recall reading that 4.1.0 greatly improved signal strength, testers got that update a couple of weeks ago so hopefully we get it soon.

    So what is coming out next? The Nexus is getting old and I am ready to hear people obsess over something new. ;)

  • Anonymous

    First I was relapsing with the G-Nex drought, now I am binging and ODing on G-Nex info overload! LOOVVIINNGG it! Yes, I am happy bro.

  • Bcbaker919

    I have to be honest, today was the 1st day I held this devise and I am a little disappointed.  The back battery cover kept falling off the demo devise.  I really want this phone, and I do plan to cover it, but it sure did seem flimsy in my hand.  OG Droid is such a tank, maybe I will just have to get used to it.  Anyone else notice this?
     

    • Kris

      same here.. I just wrote about this in the other thread. The back cover on my demo unit was warped out of shape and wouldn’t fit back in!.

      • Bcbaker919

        Same thing with the one I was looking at.  I put it back 2 times, only to have it come out a 3rd time.  Verizon probably thought I was trying to walk out with it.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Thandrophir Thand

      Mine has spent the majority of the day in a case, but for the brief time I did have it out, the back seemed pretty solid to me. Additionally, I was expecting it to feel WAY more plasticy and flimsy from the way reviewers have been talking about the build quality. It’s no OG (my previous phone) in that regard, but I was pleasantly surprised and satisfied.

      • Bcbaker919

        Thanks, for the info man.  I am going to have to just go get it, and stop worrying about the small stuff.

    • Rob

      i was a the store today playing with it, and the back cover got ripped off by the security string.

      • Wsiembida

        So did the one I played with security thing ripped it off . But I bought one and covered it and no problems. And I threw the extended battery and case on it

      I’m sure Kellex doesn’t ban people on a whim, but if you keep this crap up in all the Nexus posts that are going to be coming up, I’m pretty sure you’re going to find your IP address blocked.

      Here is a friendly plea to stop this now before it lands you in trouble.

        he should have been banned when kellex banned j_mcclane and a bunch of others the other day but he didn’t.  i guess he must be giving kellex blow jobs because he is way worse than mclane ever was.  hopefully kellex will smarten up and ban his ass!!!

            I love my Razr. I could have gotten a Nexus if i wanted to, but i passed on the plastic, bad radios and gps. Kudos to Moto for making the Razr aka the king of all devices :)

          • Anonymous

            hey troll face if the razr is better why did it not sell out like the nexus did? I mean if the nexus is junk like you say and moto razr is the king shouldn’t it have sold out the first day too in many stores??

          • Anonymous

            The nexus was expected it. The razr was announced 2 weeks before and it came out right way. The overall sell on the Razr is huge at the moment.

          • Anonymous

            Yeah I doubt the overall sale is huge since usually when verizon comes out with a phone of a different color it is because it isn’t selling that well.

          • Anonymous

            Devices will not sell as before because manufactures are coming out with a device every month.The razr has sold pretty good so far.

            If I recall the Razr didn’t come out “right away”.  They did online ordering for like 2 weeks then when it was supposed to come out 11/10 they pushed it back just so they do some 11/11 crap.  Do your research.

          • Anonymous

            it did before it was announced. People have been talking about the Nexus for about 7 months now.

            Again, do your research… The Gnex was officially announced in October.

        Lol, there was a line of about 10 of us waiting at my VZ store when they opened. Manager unlocked the front door and walked out and said “You’re all here for the white Razr right?” We all (including him) had a good laugh and then got down to the Nexus fest.

  • http://twitter.com/manymoosen David Ward

    How would you install update if you are out of the country using wifi? Can I use the computer to install them or will I have to wait until I get back to get them OTA?

    • http://www.bureau42.com/ David E. Smith

      If you know your way around the Android development tools, shouldn’t be too hard to do. Tucked away inside the 200MB download is a (Linux) shell script that has all the commands that would normally be executed as part of the update process. (Basically, it’s a bunch of “reboot to the bootloader, flash software, reboot again” commands.)
