Annoyed with the volume bug on your Galaxy Nexus? Well, i'm very proud to present the forthcoming official fixed boot image which resolves this problem. In order to flash this boot image, you need your bootloader to be unlocked at this time (use './fastboot-windows oem unlock' (or the appropriate version for your machine, included in the download). Note that the OEM unlock sequence wipes your device.

APPLY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK! This is still in a testing phase internally. Although it works great for us, well, you never know.
  • Volume Bug Fix r3 - DOWNLOAD - MD5: 292ba3630f475b2f779a19057649200a
How to use - Windows, Linux and OSX

- Download the zip file above and extract to a directory
- Put your device in bootloader mode - Turn off the phone then turn on with the 'volume up' and 'volume down' buttons both pressed to enter the bootloader (as pictured below)
- WINDOWS - double click 'install-windows.bat'
- MAC - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x install-mac.sh' followed by './install-mac.sh'
- LINUX - Open a terminal window to the directory containing the files, and type 'chmod +x install-linux.sh' followed by './install-linux.sh'

Please don't rehost this zip file - if you want to link to the fix, please link to this topic. That's all I ask. Enjoy!

Thanks a lot for your effort!

Does OEM unlock touch my guarantee?

You can reverse the unlock with lock when required;

./fastboot-windows oem lock

I'm very curious as to whether the volume bug is also fixed for the bootloader, and if it affects CPU load in any way, anyone tested something along those lines yet?

This doesn't fix the bootloader, doesn't seem to affect the device in any other way.

I'm pretty sure you have tested the fix. Have you been able to reproduce the bug with this version ? (Other than in the bootloader) One word from you and I might buy the Nexus ;)

Paul if you dont mind i will repack it to zImage flashable mod because your stock boot.img will disable all tweaks in my ROM if people flash it.

Sure, that's what i've done for MCR, as long as you give appropriate credit that's cool!
