Default Verizon Galaxy Nexus (Toro) is back on AOSP!?

https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/drivers#torojro03c

It looks like the Verizon Gnexus has all of the same binaries posted as the GSM version. Does this mean that we can build from source again!? I'm getting started tonight!

It was.

It's always been possible to create custom builds for the VZW Galaxy

point you can expect that they'll be easier to develop and that
they'll work better in Jelly Bean than they did in Ice Cream Sandwich.

Lol. That was the implication of my post.

On another note, is there any way to build a "stock" JB kernel for Toro, or should I just flash the previous Franco JB kernel when I finish cooking this puppy?

I think Franco would be a great choice

Yeah, kind of a duh moment.

But it is interesting that they put radio binaries up. It must show that maybe google made some progress with verizon on this issue.

Source files for those are available. Binaries will come at about the

That statement interests me because we now have 4.1.1 binaries released, but no 4.1.1 ota/factory image thus far.

So I'm setting up a build environment on my MacBook. Extremely involved. Mostly, I'm nit sure how many threads to tell it I have on my processor, so this may take a while.

We could get new radios, but it's my understanding that they still come from verizon. I think this is more likely related to the RIL that many skinned devices have problems finding in order to flash versions newer than their currents, like GB to ICS.

I could be completely wrong so don't take what I say as fact.

Damn, I've already got my Macbook hacking off 25 gigs of my HDD for a build environment, and now I find out that the pros are already on it. Oh well, haha.

EDIT: It's just as well. XCode is needed for the process, and it's 4.5 gigs. This may take a while.

CDMA versions of phones (that would be Verizon and Sprint) have some proprietary files needed to enable communication with the network/cell towers.

So, despite this being a Nexus phone, Google wasn't able to officially treat it like the GSM version of the phone, because of these proprietary files. They posted what they could, but the phone files were officially posted in the "archive" - it wasn't an active, Android Open Source Project phone.

Apparently, something has changed, and Google is now allowed to post these proprietary files. Which is great, because it means that EVERYTHING you need to build the source code into a working image is now maintained and distributed freely from Google.

I expect this has to do with the rumor that Google will have a whole bunch of Nexus phones next year. They've probably made deals with a lot of companies to distribute their proprietary files.

I said this in the GNex watering hole, but will repeat here, what if Verizon agreed to give Samsung/Google everything for VZW GNex to go back to AOSP, in exchange for getting the bootloader encrypted on the GS3?

lol nice. I think Google owning Motorola may have had something to do with it also. Ignoring Google's request when its a single phone is one thing.

Ignoring it when they now own one of your largest manufacturers, and many of your flag ship devices is something else...

My guess, is it would still be pushed by VZW. Hopefully, in a more timely manner though.

Holy crap, I have been syncing repo on this sucker for 2.5 hours now! I thought that I had properly specified the android 4.1.1 branch, but it looks like I'm now downloading gapps from every version.... ugh. "/Packages/Apps/Calendar", and above it has android 2.2.1, 3.0, 3.1, etc. Doing this over Wifi was a baaaaaaaaaad idea.
