Does anyone know when the Android 4.0.3 update is coming to the GNEX? I ask because this update is supposedly going to fix a number of issues namely the data connection or how the data connection is reflected on the notification bar. Thanks in advance to anyone that answers this question
I found this, but wasn't sure if it's a spoof or what. The GNex is my first Android phone, so I haven't learned any of the tricks yet...
It's the real OTA that a few people in the test community received. If you are willing to go through the process of unlocking your bootloader (which isn't really too hard if you follow step-by-step instructions like I did) then you can go into your phone via your computer and push the update to your device. Having said that, I kept receiving an error that others seemed to be getting as well, so I couldn't get 4.0.4 to go through completely.
Anyway - those that have gotten it to work seem to really like the speed tweaks, data connection update, and some other tweaks - like additional options on the "power down" pop up (when you hold down the power button).
I haven't seen anything about an official release of 4.0.etc via OTA, though...
This has to be the worst partnership to date between Google and a carrier. Verizon is way to controlling on the Nexus, give us a pure exp. That was why I bought the darn phone, to get away from bloat and poorly executed launchers. I love the Nexus, best phone I have ever owned to be honest, but dropped calls, no mic on calls, poor 4G connections are not what I would call a good move. Come on Google, step up and support those that took you up on your Pure Google exp and tell V to get out of the way.
There is NO partnership... The Nexus Line has ALWAYS been a developers device first consumer device second... It hasn't changed since the ADP devices were being sold by Google.
Really? And the fact that they had an exclusive is not a partnership? Google worked a deal/partnership to release the Nexus on V. Plain and simple. I highly doubt that Verizon will let Google "just" release an update without a wave of the hand. The holdup here, Verizon. As for being a developer phone, that is what we, the community are saying, not Verizon or Google. Show me the marketing piece that states as much? If I am wrong, I will admit I am wrong, but I have not seen any "official" statement that we have a developers phone per say. Because the phone has debug/dev tools does not mean it's a developer phone and sold as such.
