Android 4.0.4 update for Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus available to download
Owners of the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon might want to put their class action suits plan against the carrier on hold. Though rumors of an Android 4.0.4 roll out for the device a couple of days ago haven’t turned out to be accurate, it’s our pleasure to inform you that the download file for the 4.0.4 update is now available on Google’s servers. Yes, Big G has decided to take the matter into its own hands.
The direct download link will give you a 39.8MB zip file needed to upgrade the ICS 4.0.2 on your Galaxy Nexus to version 4.0.4. Now, if you’re wondering why the file is a bit small in size, it’s because Google has only provided an update file, and not the full ROM. This is strictly for people who haven’t tinkered with the ROM on their phone in any unofficial means. Those who aren’t running stock ROM on their Galaxy Nexus are not recommended to apply the update.
If you find the whole downloading and applying of patch files too cumbersome, again, we are hearing reports that the OTA update to Galaxy Nexus owners will be rolled out by Verizon very soon. Apparently, the OTA update to Android 4.0.4 has reached some customers. Given that this thing does take time to reach all customers, there’s no harm in trying to check for any update notification on your phone.
