    Android 4.0.4 is Rolling Out to Select Devices




    News broke yesterday that 4.0.4 was pushing to AOSP, and things have been moving fast. Owners of the UMTS/GSM Nexus S, Xoom Wi-Fi, and HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus devices, will be getting a nice little treat starting today. Google has begun pushing the newest version of ICS to those select handsets and tablets. Keep in mind that Verizons Galaxy Nexus is not on that list and Sprints Nexus S is not on that list. Those two particular handsets should be seing the update in the coming weeks according to Google.

    We’ve started rolling out Android 4.0.4, Ice Cream Sandwich, to UMTS/GSM Nexus S, Xoom Wi-Fi, and HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus devices, and we'll be rolling it out to more devices in the coming weeks. Some of you will be receiving Ice Cream Sandwich for the first time, while others will be receiving an update to your existing Ice Cream Sandwich experience with stability improvements, better camera performance, smoother screen rotation, improved phone number recognition and more.
    This certainly will not sit well with Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners. Buying the Nexus meant receiving those updates in real time, not weeks or months after, but this is life on Big Reds Network. We will keep on top of this story and bring you the latest on Verizon's update schedule when it becomes available. Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners sound off in the comments. Does this upset you that the LTE Galaxy Nexus is being left out of the current update schedule?

    This is a repeat of a post I just did in another thread, but in my mind this just shows that Google/Android will pretty much bend over backwards for the carriers, meanwhile Apple (and even Windows Phone to a certain extent) truly seem to have control over their devices. But this is pretty much what Google/Android wanted the whole time anyway...

    Everytime I see an Ice Cream Sandwich on DF I get hungry for one. They all just look so tempting!

    As long as I am not waiting 3-4 weeks for updates I won't be upset. If it's a lenghty delay then I'm not going to be too thrilled. I want it on my GNex and Transformer Prime.

    As somebody who purchased a galaxy nexus because I wanted to have the latest and greatest from Google, I am extremely disappointed. I won't be too upset if the delay is a week or so, but if other devices (transformer prime) start getting 4.0.4 before me, then I have to wonder what the point of getting a galaxy nexus was.

    Its not google delaying The update Big Red is ...I figured this would happen wiht Verizon not allowing google to push updates as google sent them out I figured Big red would show its true colors with the galaxy nexus even know most of you have had it for a awhile now it still is not right for verizon to hold off the update Especially for what you pay them per month these are the 2 main reasons I left verizon

    I have been so disappointed with how so the updates are rolling out. I have had 4.0.2 since day one. There has not been any updates since. I thought that it would roll out faster since this is a Google phone. I do not root but know I am tempted to root if we do not get an update in a couple of weeks. I never rooted before and am tired of waiting for the upgrade to come. I am still using 4.0.2. Do I need to up date to 4.0.3 before upgrading to 4.0.4 on my Verizon version of Galaxy Nexus?
