Android 4.0.4 leaks for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, runs noticeably faster
Samsung Galaxy Nexus owners, here is a bit of news that might be of interest to you. An early Android 4.0.4 ROM has showed up on the XDA Developers forum, and those of you who are a bit more tech inclined are free to give it a shot.

According to the guys who have already tried it out, the leaked update brings a bunch of improvements, among which a shorter boot time, increased in-call volume, and a boost in signal strength. Besides, the new radios that come along make switching between 3G and 4G much more seamless. Overall, everything seems noticeably faster, and a number of bugs have been squashed.

Now for the tricky part, this Android 4.0.4 update will work only on the stock Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Also, you should be familiar and comfortable with flashing ROMs and using ClockworkMod. But most importantly, there is always a small risk of ending up with a bricked device, so proceed with caution and only after you have read and understood all the steps in the how-to guide, available at the source link below. 

Of course, the wisest thing to do is to wait until Verizon makes the update official and starts rolling it out. If none of the above worries you, however, then we wish you happy flashing and enjoy your newly updated Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.0.4! Those who get it working are free to share their experience with us in the comments below.
