This is not what time frame we expected to build up, though finally it’s here. Verizon and Google have started rolling out Galaxy Nexus Android 4.0.4 update to be installed only on devices running stock software (Android 4.0.2) in order to install the new build, which leaves those with custom ROMs out of the equation. If you are however rooted, you should go back to stock and flash the file.
The latest Android 4.0.4 update (IMM76K) is packed with a lot of performance improvements, stability upgrades, and bug fixes. However, an update of Android was made available but for an unknown reason both company decided to remove the update from their servers. Today, the update is available again and is ready to download for those who can’t/don’t want to wait for the OTA push.
Those who would like to grab the new platform release, which weigh 40MB, can do so now straight from Google, via this link.
Although, an OTA (Over-The-Air) update will be arriving soon, so no harm in checking your settings for an update notification.
