Verizon Galaxy Nexus 4.0.4 update officially rolling out – for real this time

Would you look at that! Verizon and Samsung are finally ready to actually and officially roll out the update to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich for the Galaxy Nexus. After originally pushing the update and then quickly canceling, a few leaks and more Verizon is finally ready to give it the green light.

Verizon finally posted up the Galaxy Nexus IMM76K Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich support documents over at the official Verizon Support Page. Explaining all the details and improvements that come along with the update. Whenever the support page finally goes live from Verizon the update is close behind. This is probably the same update that surfaced again last week now that its official and ready to go.

You can manually update your Gnex right now using the link posted directly above, or you can wait a day or so as the update should start arriving on handsets from Verizon any day now that they've approved it and listed it on their support page. According to their documents along with the usual 4.0.4 fixes Verizon and Samsung have fixed some text and email bugs, some multimedia message problems, and even improved call audio too. Verizon briefly mentioned data connection but that is about all.

It's about time Verizon finally pushes this update. Nexus devices are supposed to be first in line to receive such updates and the international Galaxy Nexus received 4.0.4 a long time ago, but that is a discussion for another time. Start checking for updates and let us know once you get it.

    The screen before the Verizon screenshot presented in this article states ‘Software Update: Galaxy Nexus by Samsung – Coming Soon!’ .

    I am not sure what that is going to mean in terms of the actual roll-out date.

  • Keri0527

    So many articles claim they have reports of people receiving the ota yet not one person has confirmed getting it. Don’t tell us about it until people are truly getting the ota. Every morning I wake up to check if the update fairy came only to discover she skipped my house again :-(

    • Guest

      you have to delete a cache in the google frameworks thing then the update gets pushed

      • Keri0527

        I had tried that several times and it didn’t work. I ended up getting the update just after midnight on Friday. Thanks though.

  • bluespruce4wd

    In apps choose all then find the google services framework and delete the data and stop the process and the update gets pushed, finally many many fixes.

      Thanks for the tip it worked. I just deleted data as there was no option to delete cache

      • parsonbrown11

        the way the news spread online was cool, no help from verizon, that little spinning laser polyhedron and android monster was cool!! most issues fixed so far, using the huge font and no distortions, battery lasted all night, no reboots yet, no more burping lag in landscape etc…….wish this was on the phone dec 15th when i bought it, i’d have a different opinion of google.

  • http://www.facebook.com/slavs06 Shawn Laverty

  • HaterBlocker

    i just got the update. I believe its 4.04. got it ota this am. well see if it does the trick. my nexus was sooo buggy. i tested a call and it connected right away now (or at least here) before it took like 30 seconds just to dial the number. and just a note, when version releases updates it slowly picks certain phones to receive it first then they slowly opens it to all phones.

    I can report that I received the update Monday, June 4th, OTA without prompting or Framework Data clearing on my side. Location Chicago Area.

    My battery still requires three charges a day, with very little use. In fact, since getting the Nexus I have almost stopped playing Words with Friends except once a day. On my X I could play two-three times per day on one charge. Having a full charge before bed means 15-25% loss of battery charge while its sitting on my nightstand, connected to N WiFi (full bars). Droid X would lose 3-5%.

    On another note, had an interesting situation occur Tuesday… When trying to start a round of golf in Swing by Swings GPS Range Finder the Gnex would “reboot”. In quotes because although I would get the pretty multi-colored boot screen, my uptime would remain unchanged. This happened every time I tried to start the round in the application, even after powering off/on, and uninstalling/reinstalling the app. I just received updates to 6 applications, SbS being one of them, and no more reboots. So, beware, this release will require your apps to be updated to avoid bugs.
