    Freezes at Google reboot. 4.0.2-4.0.4

    I have tried asking this in other forums to which I got no response. Everytime I try to update to 4.0.4 when the phone reboots to install the update it just freezes at the google screen at start and only way to reset is to take battery out. Anyone have this problem or a fix?

    Do you have CWM flashed? If so that's your problem. You have to have stock recovery.

    If you don't know what that means then that's not the problem. Lol. You aren't rooted I take it then?

    I too have been unsuccessfully trying to force the 4.0.4 update using the google services framework trick for several days. I have been able to get the update to "download" and "verify", but then when the Galaxy Nexus shuts down and boots up, it always sticks / freezes on the black screen with white "google" printing, and I have to remove the battery to get the phone to work. I have lots of apps on my phone, but am a novice and never "rooted" my phone and also don't know what "CWM" means - so I assume I have not done it.

    Any suggestions on how to force the 4.0.4 update - cuz as of now (6/4/2012 3:30pm Pac time, in Washington state) I still have not received an OTA update notice.

    Thanks for any help!

    If you did not unlock and root call verizon, They should help. If they can not help request a new phone. This is a warranty isuue.

    If you did unlock and root. You could go back to stock 4.0.2 - lock /unroot - Force the upgrade -- Unlock and root 4.0.4.

    After trying a million times I guess my phone just gave up and would only to to the Google start up screen when I would turn it on. So I took it to the Verizon store where the guy has never seen a phone do that and now I get my new one today sometime in the mail.

    New phone for me too. I emailed Verizon Wireless about this update failure, they emailed me back, and I just got off the phone with them (800-922-0204, option 3). I believe I was finally talking to a member of irTier Two Tech Team. They have not received many calls about this issue (of the 4.0.4 update being stuck on the black screen with white google lettering), but Verizon identified this as a path error in the start-up protocol that cannot be fixed. Because they consider this a Samsung warranty issue, they will overnight a free replacement Samsung Galaxy Nexus (that will come with the old 4.0.2 ICS that will need to be updated). Thanks for starting this thread. I'm surprised there don't seem to be that many of us who have had this problem, but was glad to find out it wasn't that I was doing something wrong. Thanks again.
