    I actually just purchased a used Nexus S 4G this weekend, spent an hour or so last night unrooting and activating on Sprint, had to get away from my BlackBerry LOL.

    ICS is nice, but but having a Nexus 7 with JB, and makes me crave it for the phone too.

    I'll be checking my phone all day tomorrow, like a crackhead looking for rocks LOL.

    The rumors are true at least...just spoke to an online chat rep...this is a quote: "During an 8-day period from 9/6/12 - 9/13/12 current Samsung Nexus S 4G and Galaxy Nexus customers receive an Over-The-Air (OTA) Android 4.1, Jelly Bean software update."

    I'm hoping JB adds some life to this hardware with project butter.

    That does the exact same thing as "check for updates" in the System Updates section of the settings menu.

    Dial that number (check the time when you do). Then go into the System Updates screen and it will tell you the exact time you last checked for updates...which will be the same time you dialed the checkin.

    This will not work as the update is out in waves and if your phone is not in the wave, it won't work.

    The only time it WILL work is if you say no to the OTA prompt and decide to do it later.

    Sprint even mentioned this in the Playbook mention for 4.1.1 that customers could not pull the update themselves this time around.

    No, no one on Android Central has it yet. I've checked the corporate stores around here and they HAVE gotten people with the update...who, of course, aren't happy because it changes the functionality of the Search button.

    While we are waiting, I wanted to ask in case I get it. Once I get the update, how do I get the link to share with everyone? Can this be done without root access? Once I get the link, what do I do with it?

    Without root get an app to read your logcat. For example, alogcat. Once the download start, open the app and search for the URL to the actual OTA zip.

    Most people run a log cat of on their device. You can down A Log Cat from the Google Play Store. No root is needed.

    Leave it running in the background and when you do receive the OTA update notification the Google download link will be in the ongoing script/readout of the log cat.. Sometimes its easy to overlook but backtracking a few minutes of when you receive the notification and you'll find it.

    No it won't be called "update.zip" either...

    Once you find the link you can post it here or PM me with it and I'll see it gets posted.

    How's it run for you? I've heard of issues on the normal Nexus S with JB. Hoping this doesn't carry over to the NS4G.

    Apparently, it lasts a few weeks before it completely craps the bed thanks to the low RAM and processor. Some have had no issues...I'd like to know where you stand on it.

    It's my wife's phone. She doesn't really understand the difference between ICS and JB, but likes the new wallpaper and likes Google Now. She says it's running fine.

    Since you are the first to post that you got it, can you post a screenshot of the ABOUT page showing NS4G, build #, etc.
