How to Update Galaxy Nexus with IMM76I Firmware that Fixes the Signal Issues
Friday 04th of May 2012
There a couple of smartphone manufactures out there that try to keep updates rolling for their devices, but none have been as successful as Google in this matter. The standard to beat right now for the quickness on updates is the Galaxy Nexus, which always receives lightning speed OTA updates thanks to its stats as latest and greatest Google Android smartphone. Just a couple of weeks after the last update, Google has begun seeding the Android 4.0.4 IMM76I firmware update, that should finally bring a stop to all of you signal issue problems. The update also bring some much needed performance improvements, an increased stability and the aforementioned Wi Fi and HSPA signal issue fixes.As an OTA update, this particular IMM76I firmware should reach your GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus in the very near future, but as the rolling out process is usually done in steps you might want to apply the update as soon as possible.

How to for Galaxy Nexus?
Thursday 19th of December 2013
We have stock Android 4.3 running on my wife's gsm Galaxy Nexus on Straight Talk and my (recently acquiured) Sprint Galaxy Nexus on RingPlus. I have a couple of questions:There is a widget that turns WiFi on and off, adjust screen intensity, etc. What does the circular icon in the center do?I know many custom ROMs allow you to set the number of home screens and maybe select which screen is selected when the Home button is pushed. Is there a feature like this in Android 4.3?Now I have a tough one. My RingPlus plan is free, but once you go over the very small data allowance it is charged by the MB. Therefore, I want to keep mobile data disabled except when needed. I also have the paid app Juice Defender Ultimate which is supposed to save battery power. Had anyone figured out how to conserve battery power with this app and at the same time only allow mobile data to be enabled when actually needed?Update: I figured out the center icon. It's the gps satellite. The trick was searching on the proper name of this widget ie, power control.
How to update Galaxy Nexus from 4.0.2 to 4.2
Sunday 12th of January 2014
Hello, I had a Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.2.1 and it broke. My insurance replaced it, so I have a new Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.0.2. The new phone doesn't show that any system updates are available. (Well, I think it updated from 4.0.0 to 4.0.2 as soon as I turned it on, but nothing since then.) How do I update it to 4.2? Sorry if I'm not giving enough information; I'm new and I'm not sure what's relevant. Thanks in advance!
