Galaxy Nexus ICS 4.0.4 OTA’s Repackaged for use with ODIN.

If you’re a Galaxy Nexus owner who hasn’t been living under a rock, you are undoubtedly aware that Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich was recently rolled out. Unfortunately, it would seem that some people have had trouble with the OTA update, including XDA Elite Recognised Developer Chainfire, who promptly came up with a solution to the problem.

Chainfire has repackaged the full stock images for the international GSM Galaxy Nexus (yakju/maguro) for use with Odin, the flashing tool for Samsung devices. This should allow anyone with similar issues to easily install the update to stock 4.0.4. While some Galaxy Nexus owners may be unfamiliar with Odin, it’s a completely viable alternative to performing the same actions via fastboot, and offers a high degree of noob friendliness. Another bonus is that these images will also work with Chainfires Mobile Odin, allowing you to flash without a PC. If you are unfamiliar with Odin, don’t despair. There are crystal clear instructions on how to flash the images provided.

There are two versions available. The first is a “No wipe, no recovery, no bootloader” version that leasves your recovery, bootloaders, and user data intact. This version should only be used if your device is already OEM unlocked—otherwise your data will be wiped. There is also a full stock image that will leave you with a complete stock installation of 4.0.4.

Whether you’ve also been experiencing problems with the OTA or just want to grab the images then check out the ROM thread.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
