Download: Jelly Bean (JRO03O) Update for Verizon Galaxy Nexus

The Jelly Bean (JRO03O) update that popped up on a Verizon Galaxy Nexus last night is now available for download. If you want to flash it though, there are a couple of things you should know. First, you need to make sure your stock G-Nex is running IMM76Q. Second, this is a test build and apparently not the official build that users will see. So if neither of those things bother you, then you should jump all over this. 

It’s being reported that this JB build contains both a new bootloader and, wait for it, new radios (FF02 CDMA/FG02 LTE). That may make it worth it, right there.

The easiest way to do this, is to get yourself back to stock IMM76K. That may mean that you will need to flash factory images and wipe everything. From there, install ClockworkMod Recovery, download the IMM76Q file and flash it using “install zip from sd card.” After that, download the new Jelly Bean (JRO03O) file to your phone and flash it in CWM Recovery just like you did with IMM76Q. (This is a fantastic resource.)

Also, you could wait until someone turns this into a flashable .zip for any ROM.

Update:  Radios from the update have been posted here.

  • i just got the new update today

  • I have build IMM76K? Can this be flashed? I attempted to update and got nothing?

  • umataro42

    Thanks for the downloads! I was able to flash IMM76Q, and then JRO03O, using CWM, and then restored root using Scary Alien’s root toolkit app. Haven’t had a chance to try it out and see what’s new, but it shouldn’t be too much of an adjustment since I already have it on my Nexus-7.

    I’m upgrading to this jro03o and i want to root it. anyone got a root file for it?

  • dazevedo

    Do i have to root my phone for this to work?

  • Astroprojector

    I get the assert failed error message when trying to flash the phone with the new build. I already have IMM76K installed on the phone. You can see the error in this post.

      you need to be on the IMM76Q build to flash this.

  • Hmm, very interesting.

    Phone Search seems to be completely operational in JRO03O, not dumbed down at all from IMM76Q. I was able to search through my Contacts using Google Search after it synced with my Google account.

    I haven’t loaded up any music on my device yet, so I haven’t had the opportunity to see if it actually searches. But going into Options in Google Search, I do see options to search various internal sources such as Google Videos and Google Music.

    • Unified Search is fully functional in JRO03O.

        What? It is was only disabled for IMM76Q, and then restored for JRO03O?

        • Yes, that is correct. It is fully working in JRO03O.

            Interesting. Thanks.
