The infamous volume bug in the beautiful Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich sure has frustrated some very excited users. If you already have one, or have ordered one and are already fretting over this, no need for that anymore. Thanks to XDA-Developers forum member paulobrien, a fix is now available to rid you of this issue. The fix is actually an official, and fixed boot.img file, which is to be flashed onto your Galaxy Nexus. Of course you will need to have an unlocked bootloader for that.
