Verizon Galaxy Nexus factory images released, modders can start modding (updated)

Eager to start tinkering with your brand new Verizon Galaxy Nexus but worried you'll be stuck with a brick if something goes wrong? Then you can now rest a bit easier, as Google Software Engineer Jean-Baptiste Queru has kindly released the official factory images for the phone so you can fall back to something stable. That's specifically the original ITL41D images, not the newer ICL53F version that was released earlier today, although we doubt that little fact will hold up anyone from diving right in. Those ready to do so can find the download at the source link below.

Update: And just like that, Google's released the ICL53F factory images. You can go ahead and grab them at the source now.
