For now, these Galaxy Nexus System apps are only meant for developers who can tinker with them to make ports on different Android devices. Please note that this isn’t a flashable Zip file, and individually installing any app on your current device may end up in force closures or system instability. You can head to MyDroidWorld’s Ice Cream Sandwich system Dump thread posted here to get the apps [via Android Police].

Apart from the system apps dump of the Galaxy Nexus, Google has made Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich SDK officially available for general public. According to them, the all new and revamped Ice Cream Sandwich brings easy multitasking, enhanced notification features and completely customizable home/lock screens with resizable widgets. The good thing about this version is that virtual navigation bar has also been introduced, which will impart less stress on developers and users to get button remapping after porting/installing this update. Also, since the SDK is now available, you can also expect some yummy Ice Cream Sandwich getting ported to select/compatible Android devices very soon.
