Re: 4/5 - Nexus S Software Update - IMM76D (Android 4.0 - Ice Cream Sandwich)

After a day of use I have to say I am very pleased. I am getting better reception (I don't have 4G where I am, so no comment there), the phone is quicker, very stable and the battery is lasting quite a long time. I have to say I am impressed. I also really like the Roboto font type, very clean and easy to read. The Gmail app is way better as well. Chrome is my new browser on my phone and it works great. I don't know about some of the issues people are stating on here, but I don't have any of them. Kudos Google, it took forever but I am glad you did it right the first time with NS4G.

Re: 4/5 - Nexus S Software Update - IMM76D (Android 4.0 - Ice Cream Sandwich)

so i got notification of my update this morning. let it download, reboot for an install, it was back at the root screen showing the android plus a box unpacking...5 minutes later it had the same android guy then with an exclamation point with the triangle around it!

had to pull the battery in order to get it to reboot...now it says my device is up to date and still running 2.3.7!

did this happen to anybody else? should i just wait for the update to start again on its own? is there a command i can run to force the update? i checked around to see if an install package of sorts was saved but found nothing.

thanks!

First things first I have 2 nexus s 4g phones one of them got the update which I am finally happy to get but why did the second phone on my account not get it!!!! I was lied to at the sprint store when I bought this phone about 1. The rebate which was no longer Eligable for and all sprint had to say about that was sorry better luck next time no resolve and 2. The lied about this phone being the first to get ics not only did it not get it first on the network it took over 6 months for it to roll out. The big picture here though is I was lied to by sprint I feel something should be done about this I want the other phone my account to get the Danm update I am very disappointed with sprint on this I expected more from them love the service hate the customer service. If one danm phone gets the update on a account both should get it!!!

Why not just manually update it? Just follow this video and you're good to go:

I shouldn't have to do a manual update my problem is sprint did not hold up to there promise. My biggest problem is if one phone on an account get ics 4.0.4 shouldn't both phones?  Besides I'm not to fond of .apk or. Ask whatever you call em if anyone will be doing that to my phone I will let it be a sprint tech themselves.

I am still waiting for instructions on how to DOWNGRADE back to 2.3.7 which is FAR superior to the new version.  This new version was FORCED onto my phne without any approval by me and it is HORRIBLE.  My phone is extremely awkward to use now and not only are half of my apps gone, but using anything on the phone is very cumbersome.  Please advise how I can get this crap off of my phone!

It will erase all your apps contacts ETC.... so just a heads up. I dont THINK it touches the Internal SD

I tried but I have two issues.  1) I cant find the link to the downlaod.  2) The Volume Up - Power thing does not work on my phone.  It just turns on the phone.
