Android 4.0.2 OTA Update For Galaxy Nexus Rolling Out Again
About a month ago, there were reports in our forums that the 4.0.2 OTA update was rolling out to the Galaxy Nexus. However, it was halted after a week or so, but is now being pushed out again. So, if you were among the ones who didn’t get the update last year, you should be receiving an update notification now (I am, for one). If not, go to the settings and check manually for updates.
Below is the changelog, provided by Verizon (though it should be the same for the GSM version as well):
- Optimized Mobile Hotspot when used with VPN.
- Optimized 3G/4G data sessions for faster response times.
- Fixed an incorrect notification that “data wasdisconnected due to roaming”.
- Wi-Fi now automatically reconnects whenreturning to a known Access Point.
- Improvements to special visual effects feature whenusing front-facing camcorder.
- Visual improvements to the lock screen.
Email & Messaging
- Fixed an issue where some email attachments would not open correctly.
Apps & Widgets
- DivX support has been removed, and will be supported in a future upgrade.
- Improved audio volume in Google navigation turn-by-turn directions.
In case you run into any problems or want to share your experiences with the update (process), head over to the forum thread.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
