If there's already source for 4.0.3 why don't devs (whom i'll always not thanks enough for their work) makes an update? Only Google can make an incremental update and we need a full AOSP rom ?

Sorry if i wasn't clear enough.
I mean: i'm on stock 4.0.1 and i don't want to wipe now. Isn't there a way to make an incremental update 4.0.3 instead of flashing an entire rom?

Also as a Nexus device, wasn't one of the benefits that Google would put out the updates very quickly?

They have 4.0.3 just sitting there, is there any reason why they're not putting it out?

The 4.0.3 roms are based off from the uncompiled 4.0.3 source that google releases to the public, which developers can compile and test their apps on.
As for your 4.0.1, is your device a yakju, or jakjuux? Check with the GN checker app on the market. If its jakjuux, it wont be updated until samsung says so, meanwhile if you are running jakju, you should be able to go to 4.0.2, which has been released as an OTA through google. Hope this helps.

I'm yakju bu you didn't get my point or neither i'm not explaining what it could be only my imagination. BUT
If the source code it's released why it can't be a 6/10/20 mb packet that can upgrade my system like a FOTA update can do ?

Because 4.0.3 has some bugs that needs to be fixed. The 4.0.3 OTA was released for Nexus S then pulled because of the bugs it was having.
You think if it was ready, they'd release it. Give it time, people are so ungrateful when 95% of the Android Community are still on Android 2.3.X and below.

If you want it so badly, flash a custom ROM with 4.0.3 on it. If you don't want to, then you can't really complain.

Not really, there's a source released for the GNex from Google.

Sugar0, I will try compiling that stock source and tell you how it goes.
