The time has come friends. Factory images are now available for several Nexus devices. The current factory image (JRO03[C-E] depending on the device) is available for most Nexus S variants, though the Korean and Sprint versions are conspicuously absent. Similarly, the Verizon-branded Galaxy Nexus is still off the list, but all other Galaxy Nexus versions are accounted for. And, of course, the carrier-less Nexus 7's factory image is available.

For those who prefer bullet points, here are the devices with factory images available as well as the build number for each:

 

  • Nexus S (soju): Android 4.1.1 (JRO03E)
  • Nexus S (sojua): Android 4.1.1 (JRO03E)
  • Galaxy Nexus (yakju): Android 4.1.1 (JRO03C)
  • Galaxy Nexus (takju): Android 4.1.1 (JRO03C)
  • Nexus 7 (nakasi): Android 4.1.1 (JRO03D)

If you need to get back to the way things were when you first got your device, you can download the images from Google's download site right here. The list of images also highlights, in case you hadn't picked up on it yet, that it seems that picking up a CDMA Nexus device—despite being, you know, a Nexus device—seems to guarantee at least a bit of a delay in updates versus its GSM counterparts. Unfortunately, this may simply stay the case for the foreseeable future.

      No, the Sprint Galaxy Nexus is not supported in AOSP at all at this time. You are the ones us Verizon GNex owners look down on.

        I just left Verizon because it's pretty shitty.

        You only look down on us until you hit your data cap and the streaming video stops.

    We should have known as soon as VZW started messing with the Gnex at launch, removing Wallet and such, that it was a bad idea. But we still naively believed that being a Nexus meant being front of the line. Sadly... there's still no other carrier I'd go with right now. I had ATT before and the coverage sucked. Everyone I know with Tmo or Sprint complains about service. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

      We? speak for yourself buddy i NEVER thought these cdma ones were real

      Tmo coverage just depends on the area. coverage is very good here in so cal, my wife is rocking a REAL nexus and speeds are good

    Thank god for this!!! Those OTA were never coming to my i9020a! I can now happily move to JB! :) :) )

  • mduran1023

    I dunno. It sucks that the Verizon Gnex in my hand is still on 4.0.4, but I'm glad that I'm not having the wifi connectivity issues that are present in 4.1.1. As long as these problems are worked out, I'm sorta OK with waiting for the update a bit.

    If you're going to use Latinate plurals, the plural of "nexus" is actually also "nexus." It's a fourth declension word, not a second declension one (which is what goes from -us to -i).

    EDIT: Also, even if it was a second declension word, it would just be "nexi."

    I think you mean nice, and so true. Both of those statements were not opposing each other.
