Boot to Gecko Now Available for the Verizon and GSM Galaxy Nexus

When we brought you news of the Motorola Defy running Boot to Gecko, it was brought to our attention that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was already doing so. Upon closer inspection, it was found that not only was the GSM Galaxy Nexus indeed had a Boot To Gecko port running, but that the Verizon variant very recently got its own B2G working as well.

XDA Senior Member Axel2033 is working on the build for the GSM model, and XDA Forum Member jellybellys is working on the Verizon port. The Verizon B2G has a lot of things working, but also a lot of things not working, which include:

Cell service (1x, 3g, and 4g)

camera only sometimes works
no softkeys
All resources are designed for hdpi, so everything’s a bit small

This is by no means a daily driver. However it is still an excellent opportunity for anyone who wants to see what B2G is all about. While there isn’t a working / not working list for the GSM version, Axel2033 has said in no uncertain terms that it’s a highly experimental build, so that means the GSM Nexus version isn’t daily driver material yet either. Even so, it’s really cool to see B2G making its way around the forums.

For more info, check out either the Verizon Nexus B2G thread or the GSM Nexus B2G thread.
