Android 4.0.4 software update for Verizon's Galaxy Nexus leaked, and lo, there was much rejoicing across the Android nation! And yet, those users running custom ROMs did cry verily, "Well crap, now I gotta wait for the dev to update before I can get better reception." Then a voice spake: "Nay, Android power user!

Go forth and spread the good word: adrynalyne of XDA hath delivered you mildly better 3G and 4G data performance! Huzzah!"

SamMobile. The cheeky guys there say that the newest build, dated January 29th, is ready for regular daily use after a collection of improvements. The build number for the latest leak is I9100XXLPB.
ClockworkMod Recovery Touch, a new version of Koushik Dutta's ubiquitous custom recovery software. Initially offered earlier this week, the touchscreen enabled pre-boot environment is now available on more Samsung, HTC and Motorola devices.

SamMobile are at it again, releasing newly uncovered versions of the official Ice Cream Sandwich update for the international version of the Galaxy S II. Two new versions are available, running Android 4.0.1 and 4.0.3, with the labels I9100XXKP4 and I9100XKP8. It's not clear why you'd choose the earlier ROM, but they probably chose to include it for the sake of completeness. These are the official Samsung software updates in alpha/beta form, complete with the TouchWiz interface - for better or worse.
CyanogenMod 9, the Ice Cream Sandwich release, with the customized Trebuchet launcher app. But that's certainly not the only thing Steve Kondik and his army of coders is cooking up. The new ROM will have a brand-new Music player app, with a considerable amount of extra functionality.
