Nexus S 4G

Android 4.0.4 has leaked for the Sprint Nexus S 4G, and is ready to flash with Odin. It bumps the system up to IMM76D, like the rest of the devices running 4.0.4, and contains a new set of images as well as a new radio. We've seen Ice Cream Sandwich leak before for the Nexus S 4G, and this ROM looks to be pretty much the same type of case.

It's officially signed off by Google with release keys, but that doesn't mean anything for the radio and Sprint specific network code inside the ROM itself. You'll be flashing this one at your own risk -- but should be able to roll back to stock in case of any issues easily enough. The folks in the forums are giving it a go, and early reports are looking good. Be sure to chime in with your own experience if you give it a shot.  As for when we'll see anything official from Google and Sprint, nobody that knows is saying.

Nexus S 4G gets a new 4.0.4 leak

it's already all over the place in rooted format. even still, this morning I flashed the Odin, then immediately used the one click root app on xda to install cwm touch recovery and su 3.0.7 zip. It took me about 10 minutes to flash Odin and regain recovery & root :)

btw....I know it's sunday, but are the AC staff all taking naps?? This was out like 16 hours before it was posted here :) lol

I'm glad to hear it's finally about to be official. I really shouldn't defend a delay like this, but it probably had more to do with some contract that Google had with Verzion when they launched the Gnex since NS4G is a "carrier" phone and not a "true" Nexus.

I downloaded this update, and it's so much smoother than the previous official leak. My speeds on 3G are so much faster.

put it on my phone with odin a couple days ago. Very stable. The reception for both phone reception and 4g is so much better. Worth ti just for that
