    I wish they would release the source so that way CM9 can implement all these new bug fixes into their source.

    Sounds promising. For sure, the "audio reboot issues" are a near deal breaker for myself (and I'm sure many others). I'm also hoping that "data falling asleep" means when I lose 3G service (no 4G around here yet) for 5 to 6 hours on end...

    If it is indeed "Android 4.0.5" I'm assuming that it came from Goog and that the source will be released. If that isn't the case, then that's stupid as all hell.

    Never heard of BMX. I'll believe it when I see it.

    BMX? I think we need a source on above quote. I really don't want to be trolled on this.

    Always hard to confirm this type of thing. But, if you search for "Android 4.0.5" in Google News, there are plenty of sources to choose from.

    Who knows?
    Would be awesome!

    BMX (@black_man_x on Twitter), aka Mobile Panda, has been a well-known and reliable source for information on Verizon phones for years. That's why several Android and news sites are reporting the information based off his Tweet. If he says something, it's pretty much given that it's true. Of course, like anything else, things do change, especially when it comes to technology and Verizon's notoriously lengthy testing period for updates. So the update could always be delayed. But BMX's information is almost always spot-on.

    BMX is generally pretty credible. He wouldn't have tweeted this if it wasn't true.

    Unfortunately, I think this is a Verizon build only - I don't think we'll see any source from Google.

    Well, I'm glad the BMX part was cleared up. I mean from bicycles to Android phones is quite a leap.

    I have a feeling this thread was created to make those of us who still on Gingerbread feel worst. (Just kidding)

    Flash a custom ROM. Nearly all the current ROMs out now are 4.0.3. There's a couple 4.0.4.

    Forgive me. I'm not really that technical. Does this involve rooting? I would rather wait for something official.

    Yes it involves rooting. Google seems to have forsaken this phone to Verizon for updates.
