Let the crazy talk and restoring to stock Ice Cream Sandwich begin because we are now hearing Verizon is beta testing the next update for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Yes this is Android 4.0.5 according to @Black_man_X, a man that needs no introduction in the world of Android. We saw version 4.0.4 leak back in January but it never officially was released by Google or Verizon.

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard reports of Android 4.0.5 Ice Cream Sandwich either. It was leaked for the Nexus S in early February as coming in April, not to mention a few days ago rumors were churning regarding that update landing in the next few weeks. According to Black_man_X version 4.0.5 is being tested and currently runs great on the Verizon Galaxy Nexus.

His comments suggest 4.0.5 will fix tons of problems, although he was very vague on what is different. He did however confirm to us that the UI and launcher appears to all be the same, and the update mainly fixes internal things and some reboot issues. Ice Cream Sandwich version 4.0.5 for the Galaxy Nexus appears to fix audio reboot issues, battery life problems, data falling alseep, and will most likely have new radios. I’m hoping for some enhanced 4G LTE signals but that probably wont be happening.

If all goes well Verizon and Google should start pushing version 4.0.5 to the Galaxy Nexus in early April. Looks like we only have a few weeks to wait.

    • Because no officially branded OS platforms further than 4.0.2 have been released. You can however flash ROMs to other versions, say, 4.0.4.

  1. About damn time.. hope it fixes the service and radios mainly. I bet theyll throw in verizons new remote service in the update, hmmm

  2. If they could fix the loss of outgoing audio issue that would be greatly appreciated. I’d actually be able to make phone calls successfully.¬†

  3. REALLY!? Oh my god that’s amazing, thank you so much for letting us know! (Edit: it was spam letting us now about some AMAZING stuff that their brother did or something like that)

  5. Restoring to stock ICS? ¬†That’s a pretty dramatic suggestion. It doesn’t matter if Verizon sends out an official one. ¬†Those that have upgraded to 4.0.4 don’t have to return to stock because rootzwiki and XDA will re-engineer the 4.0.5 to work for any running version, just like the 4.0.4 did. ¬†You don’t have to put so many troll phrases in the article. ¬†You had me at 4.0.5.
