Galaxy Nexus Gets ICS 4.0.4 Update

XDA member kangxi let us know about an update of Android to 4.0.4 version for the Samsung Galaxy nexus on the CDMA version only. This new version seems to include new radios, so hopefully reception will improve. It´s also being said that it includes a fix for the Android OS bug that has been keeping the device awake for no reason.

While a ROM is still in the works, developer presents this change log for 4.0.4:

Noticeably Faster
Android OS bug fixed (in battery stats)
Long-pressing on a blank spot on the last page of app tray bug is gone
3G/4G switching better.
Improved signal strength
New Power Menu
PRIMELA03 Boot loader
Faster boot up time
Auto-brightness Functionality changed. Smooth transition
Holding down camera button now refocuses again
Multi touch issue seems resolved
Auto rotate is faster
Browser performance noticeably improved
Recent apps list opens faster
Miscellaneous camera UI changes
Increased volume
Keyboard fixes
Updated News & Weather app UI
Improved quick controls in browser

According to Android Police “Users on several forums are saying they’ve received prompts to download and install new updates that crank the version number up to 4.0.4.” So if you already have it whether it was pushed to your device or from the XDA thread please let us know how it´s working for you.

4.0.4 Unofficial Changelog *Update2 02/05*

Change to update.zip and flash through stock recovery or CWM *STOCK CDMA NEXUS ONLY*

*02/05 update*
For those having issues, try flashing it with CWM using the toolkit in the dev section.

Root not required but bootloader must be unlocked
1. Download the toolkit
2. Put your phone into fastboot mode
3. Open the toolkit
4. Choose the option to “Boot into Clockwork Mod without permanently flashing it”
5. Once in CWM, choose install from SD card
6. Choose install “update.zip” if you renamed it to that. Otherwise, choose the option to choose the file.
7. Viola!

Work In Progress. Will update as I discover more:

An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048.

In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
