We present some results on the local solvability of the Nirenberg problem on $\mathbb S^2$. More precisely, an $L^2(\mathbb S^2)$ function near $1$ is the Gauss curvature of an $H^2(\mathbb S^2)$ metric on the round sphere $\mathbb S^2$, pointwise conformal to the standard round metric on $\mathbb S^2$, provided its $L^2(\mathbb S^2)$ projection into the the space of spherical harmonics of degree $2$ satisfy a matrix invertibility condition, and the ratio of the $L^2(\mathbb S^2)$ norms of its $L^2(\mathbb S^2)$ projections into the the space of spherical harmonics of degree $1$ vs the space of spherical harmonics of degrees other than $1$ is sufficiently small.
