Jelly Bean Test Build for Verizon Wireless Galaxy Nexus Available

Since the unveiling of the original Nexus device, Google has made it a point to state that owning a Nexus device means you’ll be on the fast track to new OS updates. However, this has not been the case for owners of the CDMA variants of the Galaxy Nexus.

At Google I/O 2012, the GSM Galaxy Nexus received Jelly Bean. Around that time, the bookies and odds makers in Vegas began taking bets on when the CDMA versions would be as lucky. It’s been three months now, and neither the Sprint nor Verizon Galaxy Nexus have been updated. But maybe that is changing.

As of last night, reports began coming in about an update notice that began appearing for certain Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners. After investigation, XDA Senior Member oldblue910 determined that it is test build JRO03O, and requires a lengthy process to be able to apply the update, which requires you to first return to the IMM76Q update, flash to IMM76K, and finally apply the JRO03O update. You will need to be unrooted and stock in order to apply the update, but if you are so inclined feel free to download the update directly from Google’s servers.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
