Though as per different forums and websites have mentioned that this firmware can also be applied on the YAKJU models, we strictly recommend you to follow the instructions mentioned.
- All the data present in your Galaxy Nexus should be backed up so as to ensure that just in case if the data gets deleted or corrupted, the same can be restored. Charge left in your device should be >50% so as to make sure that the device doesn’t get turned Off. From the path “Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging”, you need to enable the USB Debugging Mode.
- Your Galaxy Nexus device should be rooted, so before proceeding ensure that you are on the Rooted firmware. You can check whether your device is rooted or not with an App called “Root Checker” which can be downloaded from the PLAY Store. Its important to root the device and also its equally important that the Clock Work mod recovery is installed in your device along with the unlocked boot loader.
