Vodafone Australia makes good on their Jelly Bean promises

by: nathanAugust 10, 2012

Last month, we reported a story regarding OTA Jelly Bean updates and its delay to the Nexus S. Then a few days after, we put out another story about the Nexus S getting the eventual update after the delay. Then just a few days ago, we reported about the Samsung ICS OTA update. What does all of this mean? It means we’re here to tell you Vodafone has finally made good on its promise and pushed out the OTA Jelly Bean Android 4.1 goodness!

At the moment, information is scarce about the Web, but the story is developing, and people are commenting all over Australia on their Nexus finally getting Jelly [...]

CyanogenMod 9 stable release is out for the Galaxy Nexus

by: LucianAugust 9, 2012

The CyanogenMod team released the RC1 version of CM9 just before Google I/O started. A couple of weeks later, RC2 was launched, and now it seems that CyanogenMod 9 stable is trickling out for some devices. Well, truth be told, they’ve only released it for the Galaxy Nexus so far, which may be why the team hasn’t made an official post about it yet. I’m sure that once at least a couple dozen phones will support it, they will announce it.

Reaching the stable version of CM9 is a very big deal for the developers that have been working on it for so long, because it has been a huge project. When they started porting ICS over, they’ve had to basically [...]

4G LTE Galaxy Nexus gets another Jelly Bean custom ROM courtesy of XDA user mmuzzy

by: AdrianAugust 8, 2012

As quickly as Samsung upgraded the international version of the Galaxy Nexus phone to Android 4.1, we obviously hoped that the Sprint and Verizon branded models were to follow suit not long after. That hasn’t quite happened, unfortunately, and both phones are still waiting to officially join the Jelly Bean fun.

Sprint and Big Red have both promised to roll out the update in a matter of weeks, but if you feel that you simply can’t wait anymore, you do have a few options to help you perform the upgrade yourselves. For Verizon’s 4G LTE-enabled Nexus, the latest such option comes from XDA senior member mmuzzy, who has posted an AOSP build of Jelly Bean on this forum thread [...]

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich vs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean video comparison

by: Chris SmithAugust 7, 2012

Jelly Bean (left) vs Ice Cream Sandwich (right)

Google’s latest two Android versions are yet to become available to the majority of Android users, who are anxiously waiting for their devices to be updated to ICS and / or Jelly Bean. Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is available officially only on over 15% of existing devices, and Android 4.1 Ice Cream Sandwich is approaching the 1% mark.

Sure, there are plenty of unofficial ways to run either Android version on your existing device already, but we’re strictly referring to official Android builds here.

Whether you’re already an Android device owner, or whether you’re thinking about buying an [...]

Sprint joins the free Galaxy Nexus party

by: Bams SadewoAugust 4, 2012

The Galaxy Nexus may not have the most advanced specs anymore compared to the newer Android phones available in the market, but it does hit the sweet spot between hardware, software and price.  If the latter was the biggest concern that’s been holding you back from diving in, the time for hesitation is through, as Sprint is now offering the Galaxy Nexus for free.

You will have to be a new subscriber or add a new line to your Sprint’s account to take advantage of the offer. Tick one of the boxes there and the Galaxy Nexus can be yours in 2-5 business days, provided you agree to use Sprint’s voice and data service for the next two years.

Google Wallet now works on Verizon Galaxy Nexus, lets you add any credit cards

by: Bams SadewoAugust 3, 2012

Even though the Galaxy Nexus is meant to be a pure Google device, Verizon couldn’t help putting some extra touches, including preventing the Google Wallet from running on the phone. It didn’t exactly stop creative folks from coming up with a workaround, though. However, the days of tinkering are over, as Google Wallet is now officially compatible with Verizon Galaxy Nexus.

Several users have reported that they have successfully downloaded and installed Google Wallet on their Verizon Galaxy Nexus – without any tinkering. So if you happen to do a search on the app at Google Play, you should no longer see the Verizon Galaxy Nexus listed as [...]

Sprint now has Jelly Bean binaries

by: nathanAugust 3, 2012

Sprint and Verizon seem to be in the pole position for Jelly Bean binaries for several devices. Announced two days ago, the Nexus S 4G plus the GSM variant and the Moto Xoom WiFi are now capable of getting the tasty treat. In addition, the binaries for the GSM Galaxy Nexus and Verizon Galaxy Nexus have been updated. Unfortunately, Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus does not get VIP access to the fun this time around.

As far as all these devices are concerned, JB should add a separate dimension of tech-wonder and usability to them. For the complete changelog and access to proprietary drivers, please visit Google Developers and download to your heart’s content. Please do [...]

Better than free: Verizon Galaxy Nexus available via Amazon for a penny with $40 free credit

by: AdrianAugust 1, 2012


If you thought Verizon’s deal from last week, dropping the on-contract price of the Galaxy Nexus to $99, was great, wait till you hear about the new special offer for the “pure Google” device. Not only are Amazon and Big Red now offering the GNex for free with a two-year contract, but they are also throwing in a free $40 credit to sweeten the deal even more.

And sweet it is, considering exactly how cool and snappy the Nexus still is, even compared with high-end smartphones released in the last few months. Powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, the GNex might not exactly have the same oomph as, say, the S3, but it does come with a beautiful 4.65-inch HD [...]

by: Bams SadewoJuly 31, 2012

Google has cut the price of the unlocked GSM model of Galaxy Nexus to $350 for quite some time now on its Play Store. Now there’s more good deal to be had for those looking to score the Verizon variant of the phone.  You can get the smartphone that Apple tried to silence and take down through patent litigation on the nation’s biggest carrier for free.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus CyanogenMod 10 (Jelly Bean) preview build now available

by: Chris SmithJuly 29, 2012

The CyanogenMod 10 preview builds continue to trickle in, with Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus being the latest Android device to run a Jelly Bean-based preview of CM10.

Just like in any similar cases with other devices – and we’ve seen CM10 available for the Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note, Galaxy S2 or Nexus 7 to name just a few – this is an early CM10 version for the Galaxy Nexus available from Verizon. CyanogenMod developer Brint Kriebel posted more details on Google+ regarding this early CM10 build:

Since all the cool kids are doing it, I’m releasing a preview CM10 build for my device – the Verizon Galaxy Nexus (toro). I’m sure [...]
