Google begins Android 4.0.4 Rolloutby Brian Klug on March 28, 2012 5:33 PM EST
Just today, Google announced that it was rolling out Android 4.0.4 to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) for download, with build IMM76D. The note at that point by JBQ was that the timeline for ROM push for the final build was unknown.
In a tweet and Google+ post, Google has now noted that Android 4.0.4 images are beginning to push out for the GSM/UMTS Galaxy Nexus and Nexus S, and Xoom WiFi. Absent are the CDMA/WiMAX Nexus S on Sprint and the CDMA/LTE Galaxy Nexus on Verizon, both of which are likely waiting on carrier approval. The update includes bugfixes, stability improvements, faster camera launch (which we've noticed in leaked 4.0.4 builds), and better performance in some areas.
We’ve started rolling out Android 4.0.4, Ice Cream Sandwich, to UMTS/GSM Nexus S, Xoom Wi-Fi, and HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus devices. #android— Android (@Android) March 28, 2012
We're anxiously waiting for our own GSM/UMTS Galaxy Nexus to get the push so we can test out the final build and see what all has changed. Hopefully Google also updates the factory images for Galaxy Nexus pages for those of us who are impatient.

zinfamous - Wednesday, March 28, 2012 - linkstill waiting for samsung to meet their 1st quarter promise on their flagship device.
KZ0 - Wednesday, March 28, 2012 - linkI'm writing this from a stock SGS2 with ICS. Guess you've just bad luck with the rollout =/
shabby - Wednesday, March 28, 2012 - linkHe must have the american sgs2, maybe next year?
teiglin - Wednesday, March 28, 2012 - linkThere's already an I777 leak, but as always, US carriers hold the keys to releasing OS updates for their devices. It's not Samsung's fault if AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile don't push updates to their devices in a timely manner.
zinfamous - Wednesday, March 28, 2012 - linknope SGS2. the real one. international, unlocked, etc.
KZO--you have official samsung ICS, or CM or something like that?
Samsung released that notice 2 weeks ago, but then retracted the statement. I never saw an update.
B3an - Wednesday, March 28, 2012 - linkThe official GSII ICS update has been rolled out here in the UK.
Being as you have the same international GSII you can go to the XDA developers forum and download the Samsung UK ICS update and flash your phone with that.
zinfamous - Thursday, March 29, 2012 - linkOh, awesome, thanks guys!
I've been paying mere peripheral attention to such things. I'll check this out once I feel I've backed up everything that I need to.
KZ0 - Thursday, March 29, 2012 - linkNope, official build. I'm Norweigan, though :)
kittypuncher - Thursday, March 29, 2012 - linkIn the UK - Official ICS updated on the 20th on my SGS2.
CNET has a way of forcing the official update, should you be impatient or have Kies problems. Did this for my wife, as she has a TMobile version and didn't want to wait. No root required for the CNET version either.
