    Samsung Galaxy Nexus Loses Signal in Stand By Mode After 4.0.4 Update



    When the phone enters standby, and nothing is using much CPU in the background, cellular signal is lost until phone is brought out of standby
    According to many GSM Galaxy Neuxus users on Google Code, the newest 4.0.4 update is killing cellular signal after the phone has been in stand-by mode for more than 2 minutes. Further testing shows that if the minimum processor clock speed of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is increased to 700MHz, or if there is a background app that puts a load on the processor, the problem does not occur. Users who flashed back to 4.0.2 report that the issue is not present after the downgrade is performed. If flashing back to 4.0.2 is not an option, a user over on XDA has reported that using a custom kernel with the Smart Reflex feature turned off solves the issue.

    The strange thing about this very serious issue is that it is not affecting all units. Only a specific batch of devices are experiencing the signal loss. Google is aware of the problem and hopefully a fix is on the way.

    Hopefully that bodes well for LTE users that are looking forward to 4.0.5 - i.e. it's fixable with software.

    Or does this mean the 4.0.5 update to be delayed for Verizon users if the problem still exists?

    I hope you're wrong... When bmx made that tweet a couple of weeks ago, he hinted that it fixes the problem of the radios going to sleep (4.0.5 that is), so we'll see...

    Hmmm. I have the LTE version (Verizon) and so far have not had this problem so perhaps it is only on GSM models. This update runs smooth so far and is perfect (except for its annoying desire to use a Japanese keyboard that can't be turned off).
