Download: New Jelly Bean Radios FF02/FG02 for Verizon Galaxy Nexus

When Jelly Bean was first outed this morning for Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus, most people immediately asked, “Are there new radios?” Indeed there are. And they are already available as a flashable .zip file that should work over the top of just about any other radio. So far, everyone that I have seen has had success in flashing this file. The new radios are FF02/FG02.

To flash this, you will need to be root or at least have a custom recovery installed. From that recovery, “install zip from sd card” and make magic happen.

    Does this come with G-Apps?

    Does any one know if these radios fix the crappy Bluetooth sound quality introduced with the 4.0.4 ICS update?

  • Is anyone else noticing quicker battery drain after flashing these radios? Ever since I flashed this yesterday, my GNex is leaking juice like crazy. 30 minutes on 4G, using Flipboard and battery drops from 65% to 45%. Charging is also relatively slower than before. Anyone else having this problem?

      Yes, I just noticed this too. Thought I was just using the phone a lot more recently.

    • I’m about to throw my phone because of how fast my battery has been draining. Running SlimBean w/ Franco r264 (tried lean kernel, too and stock jb) and I’m getting HORRID battery life. Airplane mode I can use my phone and I get reasonable drain but the moment I turn that radio back on I’m losing 1% every minute the screen is on.

      Also note I’m using 3G, not 4G.

    It seems like these new radios are draining battery as I kept my phone in standby for about 8 hours and it drained 50 percent

    • Did you figure out what was wrong with your phone?

      My phone radio has been draining my battery like crazy lately. Left it on my nightstand last night with Wifi and Sync off just to see what drain would look like over about 8 hours. Woke up this morning and it had gone from 97 down to 61%. Apps accounted for like 2% of the drain, everything else was “phone radio”.

      I had strong signal the whole night, I don’t get it. I am trying these radios now on AOKP Build 1 but I’ve experienced the “phone signal” drain for a few days now on several different ROMs. It’s really making me think something broke with my hardware, if I can’t fix this I’m going to try and get a replacement from Samsung within the 1 year warranty period.

    New radios seem to be looking good for me. Much better reception in the DC area, esp lte. Even switching from wifi to lte or 3g to lte or vice versa seems to be much faster.
