    Amen. I'm looking at the instructions to get CM9 on my HP Touchpad and I've spent days trying to psych myself into it...all just to get friggin' Netflix on a tablet.
    I did this. Getting cm9 on the touchpad is soooo frickin easy.

    There's a great walkthrough on the precentral forums.

    I know...but it seems like there are a lot of steps where it could go wrong.

    I wish Android was more like Apple in the updates department. This waiting game sucks. I thought the beauty of a Nexus was earlier updates? Guess not...

    So my friend put Cyanogen 9 Mod or whatever its called just because I wanted ICS and so far I like it alot.
    The menus, the navigation is fairly smooth, 4G works fine, so does tethering (although it takes longer to Connect now to the phone now for some reason but it still does) ....
    He did it yesterday and a couple times when I would open GMail the screen would flicker really really weird and it was the first time my phone had EVER done that. It also did that a couple times when I would open the Browser. It was really weird.... I was typing up a text message and suddenly it restarted too. (1 restart since yesterday at 4pm)
    For some reason (even though its check to vibrate on press) when I type to text or input text or whatever on the keyboard it does not vibrate. Have no idea why this is the biggest thing thats botherin me right now...

    Aside from that the only other cosmetic thing is that when I have wifi tether running, or when I get a Message on Yahoo Messenger the notification icons on the left of the notification bar are suuuuper tiny......

    Aside from those things I love it.

    For those that are running the same "ROM" as me, do you guys experience the same problems as me?

    (the screen flicker stopped it seems already and so did the restarts) right now I think the only thing that is not working is the Vibrating when I text even though its on

    This is NOT an April Fool's joke

    Android 4.0.4 for the Nexus S 4G just got leaked just a few minutes ago.

    Exclusive: Android 4.0.4 IMM76D Leak for Nexus S 4G - BriefMobile

    As always, it is YOUR risk to flash your phone to this...but this means the Nexus S 4G's update can't be that far along. Sometime in April at the least.

    The files in the update are actual 4.0.4 files with updates WiMax and wifi drivers. Also, the person who leaked it (who's also the source) has known ties with Sprint.

    This came from Sprint but no one knows if it'll be the final release or not. We're pretty much in the same boat as the old 4.0.4 leak except this time there's an actual ROM with it.

    ....Ha I just got my phone rooted and got the Cyanogen 9 thing with ICS just to get ICS. Is it even worth doing a factory reset since I installed all my old apps and I have my phone how I want, is it even worth going stock just to install this?

    Not really... The version of CM9 your running may already be updated to 4.0.4.

    The radio you can flash separately if you want to update the radio which is a plus...

    See this thread for the radio in the OP.

    Yes I can add to this.. Korey Nicholson was known back in the day on the Samsung Epic 4g for leaking Odin tars for that device. He has some ties to people in Sprint, so I would say this is a good source/leak.

    Loving the 4.0.4 build so far. It's screaming fast in comparison to the last 4.0.4 build that was a supposed leak.

    I don't notice much of a difference in speed. The new build doesn't have the bug where the keyboard would get stuck when exiting out of an app which is good.

    I only flashed the radio. I seem to get an extra bar at my house. Not sure about speeds yet, but so far so good.

    From my experience and what I have read it appears to be a signal reception strength increase but not a "speed" related increase.

    Can we flash the radio if we're still rockin' stock GB and waiting for the OTA?

    Yes I don't see why not.... Radio is separate from the OS so it shouldn't matter, I know in the past on previous Samsung devices (Epic 4g) we could flash any radio made for the Epic on any version of OS.

    Interesting - though I noted in the link you provided that it looks like I need to be rooted. I'm trying to avoid "messing" with my phone like that until after my initial year's warranty runs out. This isn't something that can be done from within the bootloader, is it?

    At this point I'm just waiting until the official release. I can wait a few weeks without switching roms again.
