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.

I am eagerly awaiting these fixes for my Galaxy Nexus. Was hoping 4.0.5 would be out this month. There are a few bugs that are just annoying. They keyboard can be suttery at times, bettery life is so so, and the signal is odd (LTE handover especially).

Great phone though. It is light, fast, and appears well built.

My sons mother has a Galaxy Nexus. She gets poor battery life (nearly worse than my Atrix which is OC'd), random reboots when texting or on facebook. Her phone will randomly enter airplane mode, or data will just shut off. She also has times where her phone will enter a bootloop and the only way to fix it is to do a factory wipe. I'm hoping that 4.0.5 will fix all of the above, as I know the current issues really frustrate her, especially as someone new to the world of Android.

This issues u have listed is the worst case scenario in any phone... I have few friends who own Galaxy nexus but none had any issues like this...

I am sure u bought a defective phone.. this is like one in a million scenario...

Yea, I was the one that sold her on the Nexus,. and I have had my atrix basically since the Bell launch. I wouldn't trade my phone for anything at this point. I will stay with Android for as long as it is around I feel. I had read online about the issues she was seeing, and all of the above has been seen by others. Apparently there was a bug in how 4.0.3 handled memory, and it could easily become corrupted (the resets). Using facebook and sms would cause memory corruption due to the caches on them.

As for the boot loop, I found out how to fix it by googling, another thing that quite a few people have seen, again it links back to the corrupt memory causing settings to become corrupt. Think of it like an overflow exploit, except there is no exploit, just memory blocks becoming not what they should be. If 4.0.5 doesn't fix the problems, we will take it back for sure. It's fully covered by all warantees, as I haven't rooted her phone or anything.
