There’s a new rumor going around that the 4.0.4 update that Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners have been longing for is coming tomorrow. It’s an embarrassment that it’s taken so long as it is, but if the rumor is false, it could be much longer.
The Galaxy Nexus was released on Verizon 6 months ago, yet still hasn’t gotten an update to fix its many bugs and issues. It’s stuck on 4.0.2 while the other Galaxy Nexus models have been updated to 4.0.3 and 4.0.4 long ago. It’s actually quite sad, not because Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners don’t have the latest Android version (which is still sad, considering it’s a Nexus device), but because they’ve been stuck with some pretty big bugs for 6 months without a single word from Verizon.
A few people have actually gotten the update, but it seems that tiny rollout was a mistake, as it was stopped immediately. This also means that we have the ROM for distributing and modding, which is great for rooted users. So if you really want to take that risk and plunge into the world of custom ROMs, it’s a great chance to get so much more out of your phone.
