The guys of Ports are working very hard on everything. There are about a dozen or more daily commits to their GitHub. I actually asked them the same thing last week and I believe they'll put up a new video soon

That's actually one of my concerns: availability of the Galaxy Nexus is probably continuing to shrink, and we're already halfway through the probably-only-a-year life cycle of the Nexus 4.

Well... with the definitive promise of Ubuntu Touch coming to both Nexus phones and the WebOS Ports team efforts I hedged my bets and got both.

From what I see with open webos on the Gnex is that if we get owos running fine on the Gnex, then the other nexus ports should get way faster... actually I lost track a bit of the development of hardware acceleration and other hardware stuff, that is specific to the Gnex... but there is quite a bit of work to be done (and a lot of work that already is done) in the OS itself, like settings app, phone app, Preware (there is no mojo in owos, so basically everything that was mojo needs to be rewritten in enyo2)...
