Android 4.0.4 update hits Verizon owners of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Android 4.0.4 update hits Verizon owners of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus
Five month ago, Verizon released the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. It is Verizon's first (and still their only) Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone, which came with Android 4.0.2 on-board. Though the HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE will also come with ICS once it is released.

It's hard to believe that it has took this long, but it appears that the anticipated update to Android 4.0.4 has now started to hit Verizon customers with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, though it was rumored that it was going to start earlier this week. The official Build Number is IMM76K and should be available for over-the-air update on your Galaxy Nexus starting today.  But often times updates are rolling, which means it may not hit every phone at once. If you are looking to update the device manually, or happen to be rooted, you can check this Droid-Life link for instructions.

Let us know in the comment section if you get the Android 4.0.4 update on your Galaxy Nexus - and what changes you notice on the device.

Just a fair warning to those who are reading this article: THIS IS NOT AN OTA (Over-the-AIr) UPDATE. You would have to follow the instructions, both non-rooted and rooted devices, in order to install this update. This isn't official instructions and there is no guarantee this update will be the same one as Verizon provides. If you heed my warning and still eager then please go right ahead and enjoy your radio fix you so have longed for.

We did get an email from a person that stated they did get this update today via over the air. We would like other owners to let us know if they get the OTA update as well. Thank you.

That's understandable. I've been following this story off-site and a couple of readers were acknowledging receiving OTA updates but merely a handful: Edit: Also I checked any recent firmware updates announcements Verizon tends to release but so far nothing. Edit 2: Fixed URL link.

I got rid of my Nexus last week because of the radio issues on 2 different phones. Doe this update ACTUALLY fix the problem?

Most, if not all, of the people who are claiming to have this update are stating the radio issues are definitely fixed but there isn't an official confirmation on that. I've been eagerly awaiting for this release myself before buying this phone.

Depends on what radio issues you were having. I had hand off issues between 3G and LTE and the other way around until I installed the 4.0.4 radios. I did that months ago from the leak and have not had a single issue. Both of my parents have Motorola phones (RAZR and X) and whenever I visit them our signal is always the same.

Had 4.0.4 for two months now on my Verizon Nexus. Wish i could convince everybody to root and rom because the devs at XDA and Rootzwiki are insane.

Have you looked at the Paranoid Android ROM? It's incredible. I've been loyal to AOKP the majority of the time with this phone (although i've experimented with a few different devs) and this is a total game changer.

don't get me wrong - the phone has been great for me - a little fine tune on the signals is all I see a need for...but the rumors about upgrade are a distraction - going to bail out of reading these posted rumors & wait patiently for OTA update to hit me

Shocked that I still haven't gotten the update yet lol. NOT

Does it come to your phone if you're unlocked & rooted (no roms)? Verizon GN - mid-atlantic area.

I think you will need to un-root your phone...... I don't believe the update has been pushed yet to all users.

Still waiting. Come on Verizon. This is BS !

There is NO OTA update available yet and posting that there is only makes customers more angry. The snowball keeps getting bigger and bigger as other sites link to this site making people think that 4.0.4 has actually been released by Verzon for an OTA. It would be nice if sites like this would stop posting theses unstubstantiated/inaacurate rumors.
