But now we have some good news for those Verizon customers who want to keep their GALAXY Nexus running the latest Android build. A developer who is known for producing OTA quality ROMs for the Big Red version of the GALAXY Nexus, baldwinguy77, has put together a ROM covering Android 4.4 for the phone. He included the usual Google and Verizon apps that you would find on an OTA update even to the point of not having the update rooted (although it can be easily done if you want to).
If you want to update your GALAXY Nexus with the Android 4.4 ROM, click on the sourcelink below. Make sure that you know what you are doing before you start because turning to Verizon's technical crew won't be an option. The ROM says that it is "bug free," but this is all too new to know for sure, so you might want to bring your expectations down a notch or two.
