This is a huge benefit of rooting with Android devices - where updates not 'meant' to be on your phone can be made possible thanks to a talented dev team.
And BTW, the Galaxy Nexus' PenTile display is much better than what Motorola's phones are using. You won't even notice the pixelation especially at that resolution of 720p. So don't fret.
Thanks to many
talented dev teams and a vastly more open OS where far fewer exploits, hacks, and workarounds need be utilized to achieve such ends!
Jailbreaking, as far as the processes that make it happen are concerned, is painful compared to rooting and swapping ROMs etc. It may be about as easy for the end user to achieve a root or jailbreak - but holy heck what the dev teams must go through to make jailbreaking possible (vs rooting) is ridiculous. Take it from someone with an iPhone 4, and DX 2 who has dabbled in both ends of the spectrum on the development level.
