After reviewing the situation, Google concluded that the only Galaxy
Nexus that can be supported in AOSP are the ones that are originally
sold with a "yakju" or "mysid" system.

Yes, that's the signature for the current yakju build.

Actually, those are both built by Google. yakju is one of the
GSM/CDMA+ variants, while mysid is indeed the CDMA/LTE variant for
VZW.

Do you maybe have a complete list of Galaxy Nexus built variants?

I don't have such a list. The variants I'm currently aware of are
yakjuxw and yakjusc, and I believe that the other ones are also
supposed to have two letters added to "yakju".

I know this probably isn't your area and understand if you can't
answer, but do you know if this implies anything about how these
devices receive software updates? Does this mean that the devices
configured as "yakju" and "mysid" will receive OTA updates directly
from Google, while other device configurations will not?

Thanks,
Alex

Indeed, that's not my area, but I have no reason to believe that there'd be differences there, as the differences between versions are really small region-specific tweaks.

Do we know if it would cause any harm to flash to the yakju build from
a yakjuxw build to get AOSP support? I ask because I'm very much
tempted to flash a yakju image to my device, but as far as I know,
there are no images available for download for the yakjuxw build to
reflash that.

Well, that's the core issue right here: I don't know if it works, I don't have any way to know, and if you try and it doesn't work I don't know of any way to recover.

just to be a little more clear, I flash the factory images from
http://code.google.com/android/nexus/images.html
and restored to a completely "stock" state... my gnex was yakjuxw and
now it is yakju (ro.product.name=yakju)

I'm thinking I might do this as well. Just need to make a nandroid
backup and move the files to my PC.

Thanks for all the input!
