Verizon Galaxy Nexus Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update step-by-step

This week there've been a couple reports of Verizon hitting the End of Life marker for a variety of phones working with their 4G LTE network, this including (for starters) the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S III (32GB), and original DROID RAZR.

Galaxy Nexus ban lifted in Samsung vs Apple case

Galaxy Nexus ban lifted in Samsung vs Apple case

If you thought the Apple vs Samsung court battles were over, you were wrong - evidenced once again today by another big ruling: an overturning of a preliminary sales ban on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus. Of particular importance is this overturned ban from sales of the Galaxy Nexus because of its status with Google as one of their hero Nexus family phones, working with a "Vanilla" version of their Android software, not modified by the manufacturer, that is to say. Here the Apple vs Samsung court cases rage on beyond the one that appeared to be over for just a moment earlier this Summer.
