    I know that. I'm asking what the difference is between the one released 2 months ago and this one.

    No difference really. Just that everyone who remained stock finally got it. With it being the first major update, it's a big deal, also since it took so darn long for VZW to send it out

    Well if he flashed 4.0.4 two months ago, he may actually be on the unofficial 4.0.4. Make sure your build number is IMM76K.

    To add to this, the big deal is that Verizon took so long to update a Nexus device, which are supposed to have the best OS support in the world of Android. Leave it to VZW to eff the Nexus concept up.

    Google'ing this says you are correct, in a way. The core telephony APKs are carrier-provided as they are proprietary and must be signed with a different key than the AOSP build. Notice I said "carrier-provided" - hence, the blame lies with VZW. The Sprint version launched back on 4/22 and to my knowledge was running 4.0.4 at launch.

    Google still provides the core OS, but the AOSP would have no voice/data functionality right out of the box.
