Good news for you owners of the Galaxy Nexus. The Android Building Google Groups page put up an announcement stating that a complete factory image for your Galaxy Nexus has been released. This image includes the bootloader, baseband, and the rest of the system. As we all know, Google phones have always been easy to root and the Galaxy Nexus continues this tradition. This factory image will restore your phone back to its factory state should you mess it up. If you are interested you can un-archive the package and check out all of the files individually, however, there is a “flash-all” script that has been added so that flashing to the factory state is easy to do.
Jean-Baptiste M. Queru, Software Engineer for the Android Open-Source Project, was quoted to say:
“hopefully this’ll be useful to people flashing custom AOSP builds, as it provides a clean supported way to return to factory state.”
Those of you who are interested in flashing your phone, you can head to the link below the break to get your image.
