    Default [ICS][NS4G]Official Nexus S 4G ICS/Android 4.0.4 Update


    Nexus S 4G ICS/Android 4.0.4 Update Thread


    Screenshot by JDGAFFLIN




    :: Manual Installation Method ( NO DATA WIPED ) ::

    1. Download this file from here http://android.clients.google.com/pa...g/TAMkDR3z.zip (Credit : LateNiteWithJme at Android Central)
    File Mirror : TAMkDR3z.zip (rename to update.zip)
    2. Rename it to update.zip (Windows users careful not to get a double ".zip" extension) and place it on your sdcard.
    3. Shut down phone
    4. Boot into bootloader (Volume Up+Power) then from bootloader screen choose RECOVERY (Navigate Vol Up/Down and select with Power).
    5. You will then see a screen with a yellow triangle sign, again press and hold (Volume Up+Power) this will now enter you into stock recovery.
    6. Choose to Apply update from /sdcard
    7. Sit back and relax for a few and you should boot into official Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 !

    Could you please provide a log cat of the OTA URL before you apply/reboot your phone? Once ICS is installed it is too late to get this info.

    It will help the rest of us get the OTA also. If you need help please ask!

    Edit: Just got it too..... doing the log cat....

    Just finished updating my nexus, first thing that I noticed is that I now have 1GB for applications instead of 512MB. I havent finished looking at everything yet, but I did notice that Agenda Widget is not working for some reason. Hopefully it just needs to be reinstalled or something.

    That's my take so far, after having ICS installed all of 5 minutes. I'll let you all know if I come across anything else interesting.

    Also anyone get me a screenshot of the juicy details on the About Phone screen for the OP that will also get you credit and a big thanks from me (Screenshot... Hold Volume Down+Power together, this will do a screenshot in stock ICS)

    Can you confirm the build number?
    Is it IMM76D?
    If so, I'm grabbing it from Peter Alfonso

    i tried the checkin thing about ten times....nothing.


    so that URL thing...is using that essentially equivalent to getting the OTA or is it somehow different to do it that way?

    The URL that was posted (twice even :P) is the OTA itself, take it, rename it to update.zip (you don't HAVE to but it's easier) and add it to your phone, boot into the bootloader, then update from the SD card. Choose that zip.
