Although the factory Jelly Bean image for the GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus was made available for download a few days ago, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus was unable to join the JB party, due to the lack of official update. But now, CyanogenMod is once again here to save the day, with a preview build of CM10 for the this particular model.

CyanogenMod developer Brink Kriebel says he's been using this build of CM10 as a daily driver for the last couple of weeks, and promises that a lot of the CM9 features are already available, while pretty much all hardware features like camera, NFC and networking should be working. Still, the dev does warn that this isn't a final build; it's still a work in progress so stuff like glitches and bugs are to be expected.

Those who are still willing to try this custom mod out on their Verizon Galaxy Nexus devices are advised to do a full wipe/factory reset before installing the ROM to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible. On the other hand, if you can wait a bit more, we're sure that there will soon be a new, more stable release of CM10 for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. For the most impatient ones, though, this preview build should be good enough as a daily driver.
