ICS Now for Nexus S i9020A

It has been a long time coming – Android 4 for the Samsung Nexus S phone.  Over the last few days Google has once again been rolling out the 4.0 viagra 10 pilules pas cher.4 update for the Nexus S as well as the Galaxy Nexus.  As impatient as I am, I still don’t have the desire to root my device and mess around with some custom ROMs, so I bit my lip, trembled and tried to stay patient.

Over the Easter weekend, I noticed that the official OTA update was posted online so I decided to download it and give it a go.  This update can be applied without erasing your phone (although a backup is highly recommended).  I did back up my text messages and decided to take the plunge.

It’s pretty awesome.

Overall, the experience is everything I hoped it would be and menus and home screen scrolling is seemless, smooth and very fluid.  This version of Android adds some features such as native screen capture and a few more things that make it work trying out.  There are a lot of different guides and sets of instructions around the web, but I figured I could save you a lot of hunting, searching and reading of different instructions if I simply posted up everything you need to move your AT&T/Telus/Fido/Rogers/Bell version of the Nexus S (i9020A) from Gingerbread’s 2.3.6 (GRK39F) to Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 (IMM76D).

This requires no rooting, no bootloader tweaks or anything all that special.  If you can copy a single file to your phone’s MicroSD card, you can do it.

I’ve included a file with a full “How to Update” readme that includes very basic instructions on how to get your phone updated.  Please keep in mind that this is ONLY for the i9020A phone running 2.3.6.  If you have anything else, please drop me a line and I can hook you up with a link.

Please download the package here and enjoy!

I’ve had requests to add a donate button to this post.  Feel free to use it if you like.  If not, no worries at all!

    Any chance you can help me get there from 2.3.4 on 9020A?

  • If you are looking for an update from 2.3.4 (GRJ22), you first need to update the device to 2.3.6 (GRK39F). Please head on over and grab the update file from here – http://www.wtufiles.com/files/update.zip

    Follow the same instructions with this 17.5MB file as you would the much larger ICS 4.0.4 file – after you apply this update.

    (Both files have the name “update.zip” – so don’t confuse the two. Once you are done with this smaller file and have patched your device successfully, delete it from the root of your SD card before copying over the large ICS file.)

    How to update:
    1. Place the update.zip in the root directory of your MicroSD card.

    2. With your Nexus S off press and hold the volume up button and power button until your phone turns on. It will enter a recovery screen.

    3. Scroll down using the volume down button and select Recovery by pressing the power button.

    4. In a couple of seconds you will see a yellow triangle on your screen, now press the power + volume up button to get to the file selection screen.

    5. Choose to install update from SD card using the volume up/down to move the selection and press power to select.

    6. It will take about a few minutes to patch required files and reboot. Upon reboot, it may patch more files during first launch of Android 2.3.6.

    7. Enjoy.

    Once that is ALL done, you may apply the new file package referred to in the above post.
