It looks like those sporting a Verizon branded Galaxy Nexus can update to Jelly Bean. Of course, while that statement sounds good by itself — there are some catches you will likely want to know about before you begin. First, this is a test build and not the build that will come as the official release. And if that does not convince you to run screaming and crying — you will also need to make sure your handset is running IMM76Q before you begin the update process. While we here at GadgeTell were not quite brave enough to test this one, reports have stated that this (JRO03O) build contains a new bootloader and a new radio (FF02 CDMA/FG02 LTE). Anyway, those willing and/or brave enough to move forward — the download link is below as well as a link to XDA where you can get a bit more detail before you begin. Finally, just as the generic warning — should you move forward and should something go wrong — we here at GadgeTell are in no way responsible.
