  • If I had a Telstra Galaxy Nexus and only just got 4.0.4 I wouldn’t be celebrating… The Galaxy Nexus is a fantastic device (I have one), but it’s a disgrace that even the Nexus has become fragmented.

    • The nexus isn’t fragmented, the carrier is…Roy your phone and install the default Google software and get rid of the Telstra stuff, but if you want your phone to work best on the network then leave the optimized version on…
      these updates show you that the carrier must approve updates of customized builds to ensure it works correctly on their network (no not all mobile networks are the same and that all have different characteristics)

  • Hi, My s3 is with optus, tonight i had friends come round who run their Gs3 with virgin and when their galaxys connected to my wi-fi they auto downloaded the new firmware giving them all kinds of nice little perks….the camera changes are quite nice. When will optus be pushing the update through? any info please?
