You might be wondering about the small size of the update, it’s not a full blown ROM and only provides you the files that are required to update your Galaxy Nexus to Android 4.0.4. Please, note that you are on the official ROM stock without any customization done by unlocking bootloader. This update can only be applied to official stock.

Before going for Verizon Galaxy Nexus Android 4.0.4 update, we recommend two things :
- Look to completely charge-up your device battery as you won’t like your device switching off in-between the update process.
- Also, try to back-up your messages, contacts, application settings and whatever you can. If something goes wrong, this little step can save you from a lot of headache.
