Google have made the default Factory Images for the GSM Galaxy Nexus available for everyone to download. The Images allow you to flash your Galaxy Nexus back to factory settings after having any kind of crazy ROM installed on your device. Everything is included in the Images: bootloader, baseband and system image. It is noted that you also lock your bootloader after flashing back to the factory build using “fastboot oem lock”.

I’m tired of reading all your comments about the delayed release date.  iPhone users waited 6 months for the iPhone 4S and all they got was a few minor tweaks, a poor batter, echos and muted calls and insert SIM messages but do you hear any of them complaining? NO, so please STFU, the phone will be here when it gets here.


Been for months considering switching from iPhone to Android for the first time. Given the phantom release of the Nexus though, I might just be content with a 4S.

Phantom !!! you waited 6 months for the 4S which is essentially the iPhone 4 with a few minor tweaks.

Ditto that guy.

This release is a total joke. Supposed to be the flagship and nothing is happening!!!

Android will never challenge apple if this is the best on offer.

I jumped from iPhone to nexus s and was looking forward to the galaxy nexus. I’m now almost considering moving back to iPhone.

Sick of it.

That GUy

4 christ sake, Just release the THING ALREADY
