Nexus S 4G Gets Leaked Android 4.0.4 Build


Those looking for some Ice Cream Sandwich love on their Nexus S 4G should listen up. A new build of Android 4.0 – 4.0.4, to be exact – has leaked online for rooted users. The build for this particular device and release is IMM26. It appears that the build is quite stable but it’s not yet known if this is the final firmware ready to be pushed out to handsets. Download links and instructions can be had at the source link ahead. Remember that you, and only you, are responsible for anything that happens to your devices – no one’s putting a swordfish up to your neck and making you flash it. [XDA via PocketNow]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. It’s not just for rooted users, my phone was rooted, but i’m running this build with the bootloader locked/no root. Anyone can run this build, including those who wish to stay stock, this rom is smooth.

    1. Maranello, you seem to be the most informed so please answer me this 1 question: Should I go thru the trouble of updating to 4.0.4 if I’m currently running 4.0.3 on my Nexus S? If YES, why please? What has changed, bug fixes, reboot fixes, better WiFi, what?

  2. Maranello how do you install for non rooted users

    1. I would assume boot into stock recovery and flash the update.zip.  It’s what I did on my OG Droid before I rooted it (to get Froyo).
      Edit: actually it’s much more complicated. Check the source on XDA for unrooted phones.

    2. I used Odin. The instructions are on XDA(in the thread that the article links to at the end), when it flashed, I lost root, and I locked the bootloader myself, was running MIUI previously. Just going to run it this way temporarily until I can root it again. Here’s a video showing how to install. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrps8sB5_zY&context=C34d9d3fADOEgsToPDskJaYdZvAwuuXzv8ojK6iVhc

  3. Single core. That is all. Lol.

    1. What’s funnier is you thinking that a single-core cpu is somehow worthy of being a punchline. “omg. dualcore is where itz at… until quad. you’re so 2000andlate! lol”

    2. I dont own a Nexus S 4G, but a couple of my friends do, and, without a doubt, this phone runs smoother then most of dual core phones I have used. 

      Silly kids! lol

  4. I flashed ICS 4.0.3 onto my Nexus S by myself. Should I update to 4.0.4 or is there no big changes? Can anyone tell me the specific changes made so i can decide weather to update or not? Thanks

  5. Swordfish? Somebody watched When Vacations Attack. Lol
