I'm surprised this didn't come sooner, but better late than never, right? The full Galaxy Nexus (presumably GSM) system dump, together with boot and recovery images were leaked earlier today by none other than Paul O'Brien, the founder of MoDaCo, a talented developer, and creator of many custom ROMs. If you remember, previously only the apps as well as certain bits and pieces of Ice Cream Sandwich were made available for download.

The files were extracted by Paul from a test device running build ICL23D and are about 170MB in size combined. You can download all 3 of them over at MoDaCo.

Now the question of the day is: Will any talented devs be able to port it to existing devices, such as the Nexus S, and will we find something of value that hasn't been previously leaked? I'm sure curious to find out.

P.S. As Paul correctly points out, just because someone has certain possessions doesn't mean they can be immediately leaked. Just remember it next time you demand all the things!

The Android world is funny you know.

Often I come across releases, beta tests, development builds and suchlike that I can't share at all, sometimes I am given builds that I can share with some changes, and sometimes I have files that my sources allow me to share in their entirety.

It's a sad fact of some of the community today that this concept seems to difficult for some to understand.

Their thinking is simply that if you have something, you should share it, forget the responsibilities towards your sources etc., they just want what they want.

It's a shame, but today I'm pleased to have something that I CAN share...
