Carriers, have disappointed many in case of smart phones. They prevent users from experiencing the best out of the smart phone. Since the very beginning Android too, is messing with the carrier stuff. They not only restrict the regular updates from Google but also limits the developer support for the device.
Today, we rise a little level above seeing that Google after a long time published the first android version 4.1.1 Jelly Bean factory image for the legendary Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus (CDMA/LTE), where sprint might have been making you compromise with the Google Nexus goodies, this image serves you back with all of them.So, its right when we say that a Nexus phone is never a Nexus until it owns all the updated Google stuff. So, from now on if you have accidentally bricked or fried up your device, you can simply head back to the factory stage.
