    Default Nexus S gets 4.0.3 and now 4.0.4!?! Wheres the love?

    I know rumors are April for a 4.0.5 release and we did see a 4.0.4 leak, but the Galaxy Nexus is supposed to be Google's flagship phone now. It seems like the Nexus S has the priority right now, but why would that be? How much of an official release is carrier specific?

    Just not feeling very loved right now...

    Have to say I'm excited for the nexus s owners and hopefully sprint will release the goodness to the 4g owners.

    There has been a way to install 4.0.4 on our VZW GN's for months now.

    I read that our phones are getting 4.0.5 and it is currently being tested by VZW.

    There is tons of bugs with 4.0.2, like low volume and random reboots, to name a few.

    It looks like it's more than just the Nexus S getting updates:

    The HSPA+ GN is getting a 4.0.4 bump too.

    I guess I broke the first rule of "leak" club?
    I asked about it and an hour later it was announced

    mind you this incremental update released today is only for those Nexus S owners who have ICS, majority of Nexus S owners are in the same boat as NS4G owners. But my guess is it will be pushed out soon to all of us.

    I have had 4.0.4 since the leak hit and its been great. I think one of the reasons someone would think about getting a Gnex is that it is very easy to upgrade and apply any update google pushes out without waiting for OEMs to develope thier version of it. this is why i could care less if its not official, we have the ability to appy it anyways.

    The other issue is that the official 4.0.2 doesn't play well with accessories, specifically docks. Because of this, Samsung isn't pushing out accessories. An official update is pretty important if we want to see OEM docks, etc.

    Who cares? I mean, really. We know an update is coming. Why waste your energy complaining?

    I think its safe to say 4.0.5 could very much come next month, mainly for CDMA devices.
    So many phones, so little time.

    Good for them. I love seeing the older Nexus phones getting updates and being taken care of. One of the major reasons I wanted a GNEX. I haven't had any issues so I'm fine to wait patiently. If I did, or I get antsy, I'll root

    Interesting point someone made about the accessories. I don't use any (case/charger), but never understood why they don't want to take the people's money who would.

    one of the selling points on the phone was the speed of its updates. Based on what I have seen so far this is completely bogus

    In a sense, updates to the Nexus line is still faster than any other OEM phones with there custom UI.

    Now, if VZW was strictly GSM based we would be getting the update as well and not have to wait on VZW.

    Also, if VZW was GSM based we could take the AOSP and build it ourselves and install it on our phones, but since we are not GSM, but have the CDMA Nexus we don't have access to the CDMA binaries, but VZW and Samsung do.

    Soon, Sprint GN customers will be in the boat as are.

    I think you assumed that benefit, never expressed by VZW that I'm aware of.

    I love how people get so worked-up over an update that doesn't even really change much of anything.

    The one annoying part is that when there is a major update the VZW version won't receive the update initially.

    I think this will be my last Verizon phone. I almost never talk on the phone anymore and with wifi available almost everywhere it doesn't make sense to pay more for phones/service with there are better choices.

    or Google for that matter, at least officially. Most of that talk came from avid fans. Regardless, Google has said time and time again that they will still support the CDMA Galaxy Nexus (which means updating it when possible). Unfortunately, there are still hurdles they have to jump through in order to get it out to us.

    On another note, the leaked 4.0.4 is an earlier build. Whatever CDMA/Verizon users will get will surely be an updated build of 4.0.4 (if not 4.0.5) which will probably contain more fixes.
