Nexus S 4g and ICS-where is it?

My husband and I both got the Nexus S last summer.

The deciding factor for me was the Sprint employee who assured me that as a pure Google phone, it would be the first phone to receive the new version of Android when it came out.

We are both extremely disappointed with how this update has been handled. Sprint and Google have both been silent. I won't be buying another Google phone.

Sprint, this isn't fair. You owe us answers.

All,

Google and Samsung are testing ICS as we speak and once ICS is stable and ready to be released on the Nexus S, we will post an update. Google will roll the update out slowly once ICS is ready. The current date is tentative to testing results so I will not post a date.

Thanks,

**System OTA Update Thread**

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwhich

Nexus S 4G

All,

Sprint is working with Samsung and

Google to release Ice Cream Sandwich

on the Nexus S. The rollout will be a

slow rollout with 5% on the first day

and a 3 day soak period. A confirmed

date is not available at this time and I

will post the date once I am 100% the

date is not pushed back.

Thanks,

Blue

I don't know if Sprint is aware or not, but the galaxy s2 has started rolling out the update over seas starting yesterday the 13th. I see an epic fail on the horizon. All nexus users be on the watch for this one. I think that the other Samsung phone will see it first.I know it's not sprints fault, but u are tied in since it's on your network. I hope u guys are pressing them to push it on the nexus first

It looks like ICS will be out in April. I think it will corrolate with the release of the nexus prime.

Anyone have any luck getting out of their EULA or another way of bypassing the early termination fee?  I've been looking to get rid of Sprint, not only because of this issue, but for others as well

I have been waiting as patiently as everyone else and as everyone else as fustrated. I did a lot of home work on the web and there is a newly released Sprint Nexus S 4g CDMA ICS 4.0.4. update. I am not that tech savy but I am able to watch a video and do a step by step procedure ( which incidently is fully reversible) and wa-la, instant ICS 4.0.4. and as far as I am able to tell runs better than the Gingerbread I now have. if anyone is interested please review the u-tube video on Nexus S 4g

Sorry I did not finish this reply. the Video if you are interested is made by qbking77. I watched more than 50 videos on this and tried at least 5 times with other options and this one actually does what it claims and with very lilltle effort.   Have fun and as I recently said it is completely reversible. There are always more than one way to skin a phone network.

yes but what you are referring to requires you to root the device just so everyone is clear

According to the video your phone does not need to be rooted however it does need to be unlocked. My phone is not rooted, it just had to be unlocked.
