Samsung Galaxy Nexus Android 4.0 rolled out unofficially

Users on several forums are saying they’ve received prompts to download and install new updates that crank the version number up to 4.0.4. In order to flash the update you will need to be completely stock with stock recovery to install as-is. This update is only for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, if you flash it on your GSM Nexus and you brick it, it’s not our fault we did warn you!

This new version appears to include new radios, so hopefully reception will improve. We’re also hearing that it includes a fix for the href=”” rel=”youtube” target=”_blank” title=”Marc Benioff and Eric Schmidt Keynote”>Android OS bug that has been keeping the device awake for now good reason. Unfortunately, we don’t have any release notes to confirm any of this.

If you’re feeling lucky and want to try out some software that, according to href=”” rel=”homepage” target=”_blank” title=”Google”>Google

, doesn’t exist yet (look who I’m talking to, of course you do), you can download the file (659e0a8f24b4.signed-mysid-IMM30B-from-ICL53F.659e0a8f

Couple of notes here:

You must be on 4.0.2 bootloader, radios, boot partition (kernel), and system or this will failed.
You can use this in both stock and CWM recovery.
You will lose root and will have to reroot afterwords using CWM!
