When resuming my GSM Galaxy Nexus from sleep moments ago I was asked if I wanted to apply an update.
This OTA software update brings “the latest version” of the Android OS for the phone, ITL41F, which “contains an important bug fix”. At only 960KB, the update is pretty small, but it does require a reboot to install, and another to apply.
When booting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich you’re always met with the message that “Android is upgrading”, even when it’s just booting up (which is kind of weird). In this case, however, it was actually updating, and applied 28 items.
After the update the Android version is still 4.0.1 (the same as before the update), but the build number has been updated to the aforementioned ITL41F. Rumor has it the Verizion LTE Galaxy Nexus will come with Android 4.1.0.
What was included inside this update, I’m really not sure, but it was likely only the “volume fix” that we’ve been hearing about for the last several days — but luckily doesn’t impact very many people.
