New RAZR Ice Cream Sandwich Leaks as Build 6.14.84, May Be Official (Updated)

 

A new Ice Cream Sandwich build for the DROID RAZR and RAZR MAXX has leaked within the last  day or so as build 6.14.84. We are hearing that the file size (roughly 343MB) matches that of the file listed in yesterday’s VZW update schedule, so this could be the official build assuming it passes all tests. Our reader has been testing the build over night and we are hearing that the file may be released to the public within the next hour. The folks at DroidRzr.com will have it, but we will be updating this post to let you guys know.

Once released, it appears as if you will need to be on build 6.12.181 in order to apply it. If that sounds familiar, that’s because 6.12.181 is the new OTA update that started rolling out at the beginning of the week – another sign that this ICS might be the one.  

Update: It has been released. Here is a link to the download and instructions on flashing.

Update 2:  Folks are already reporting some bugs that VZW likely won’t let pass. This probably won’t be the official version. Seems like we are getting pretty close to being there though.

 

Cheers Joseph!

    ‘charge only’ mode is missing. removes root, cant restore using voodoo. cant update su binary.

  • nailbomb3

    The files have probably been pulled from most places. That being said, do NOT install .84 as its NOT fastbootable and WILL knock you off the upgrade path.

  • Sporttster

    So…the recent “bug fix” that was pushed recently,…did it in fact actually fix any bugs or make matters worse? The update is what I am referring to. And what bugs were found in the ICS build? I’d really like to attempt to possibly in the near future DL this and give it a whirl.

     6.14.85 is now leaked, but problem is, you can’t fast boot back to Gingerbread…it can brick your  phone.  So, you are stuck on .84 or .85, sucks for people on .84 wondering why .85 is better.  6.14.75 is the safest  ICS leak for the RAZR until people can un-brick their phones…you so crazy moto…but the phone is awesome with ICS…

  • Letter2shannon

    Does anyone know if the leaked ics uses on screen navigation buttons like my gnex or does it use the stock capacitive buttons at the bottom and therefore not eat up more screen?

    • Alexander Garcia

      It uses the stock soft buttons and IMO I actually prefer those 4 buttons anyway. It’s an Android trait that I refuse to do without. LOL

      • Letter2shannon

        I agree. That’s good news too. Would be frustrating if my wife’s phone went frm a 4.3 screen to a 4.0 screen with ics. Thx

    So is this ICS build coming by the end of the “day,” or the end of “May?” This little article says both.

  • Jennifer Husted

    *sigh*
    I got so excited last night when a popup appeared on the screen of my RAZR stating a system update ready to download and install.  I hit “Accept” and sat on the edge of my seat waiting to see what wonders awaited me…..

    Unfortunately, after the update, the phone just kept rebooting itself.  Over and over and over and over.  I finally managed to get in there and keep it up long enough to do a factory reset on it.  But guess what?  The factory reset puts it back to Gingerbread.  So I went into the Settings to see if I could request the update again, and it’s claiming my phone is up-to-date.

    *sigh*

    Perhaps more trouble than it’s worth?

    • LiterofCola

      It was probably the earlier update that was pushed in the beginning of the week.  Not this ICS one, this wont be released till next month

  • Nexusornexus

    Nexus is the first born, everybody else is step child’s :(

    • Drunknexusornexus

      There is an error 
      touché in advance

  • NotoriousNeo

    Doesn’t seem like this is a good leak to flash compared to the first one. From the words around the forum, there’s no way to go back, although some say it is. I wouldn’t trust it.

    nexus is junk

    • La2da

      So are dudes named Kerry.

  • motionmist

    I am not sure why but for some reason my RAZR won’t pull the latest update. I did the temp unroot thing and it still won’t pull.

  • Bionic

    Bionic love please

  • Wayne Tarapilli

    Webtop 3.0 beta says it’s not a final build… they would not release an update with a beta build buried in it.

  • rafa2376

    Has anybody tried it? Any problems and is it stable?

    • Junk

       works fine for me. camera, 4g, face unlock. everything works, unlike the cm9 prealpha i came from. i havent had any problems as of yet.

  • SP

    So, is it possible to install this without wiping out the phone’s info/apps?

  • bakdroid

    Huzzah!  Can’t wait to see the performance boosts on the Razr and Bionic when these release.  I know the Xoom is like a whole new tablet with ICS so these phones will be awesome.  They are very good on GB and they will be unstoppable on ICS.

  • http://twitter.com/QSMinSD Q

    Thumbs up to Moto for not totally mucking up ICS like HTC did.

    • Tyler Cameron

      Yeah, I like how Motorola kept ICS’s design philosophy.

  • MooleyBooleyTroll

    Are the icons locked?

    • kixofmyg0t

      They shouldn’t be. The dock was (semi) customizable even in GB.

      • MooleyBooleyTroll

        lol I was playing on the Nexus Trolls having a tizzy at the bootloader being locked.

  • James

     Razr vs Nexus who will be the first to see 4.0.3 / 4.0.4 PLACE YOUR BETS!

    • Alexander Garcia

      RAZR will get it first. Big Red hates its bastardized version of the Nexus. GSM HSPA+ Nexus is the only Nexus anyone should get.

      • Josh Nichols

        Sprint Nexus is also on either 4.0.3 or 4.0.4

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_7WGJLO7DTFLNC3JPVEJL6EMLXU Mike

       Give it to the Nexus first!  When it hits my Razr Maxx I want it RIGHT!

  • Loffie

    Will it be released over the air soon?

    • Mustang5Oh

      Why? We have ICS and all you will have for who knows how long are buggy leaks.

  • http://www.unexpectedparameters.com Aaron Hurt

    Where’s Motoblur?!? 

    This looks too good to be true.

    • http://www.facebook.com/objection89 Miguel Angel Portela

      It really is that clean. The only differences are the Gallery and Messaging app are not stock. They are ICS themed though.

      • http://twitter.com/55938 MrSix

        oh god! I like Blur EXCEPT for the gallery app! Here’s hoping I guess

        • eckdawg5

          you mean you don’t like having all your photos scattered all over the screen in which you have to go into the folder (singular) to see EVERYTHING? when they integrated that into their blur for the droid x gingerbread I started using quikpic…

          • Alexander Garcia

            Quikpic is the only gallery that matters to me  =)

      • Josh Nichols

        The status bar icons aren’t stock either for the record..

        • Tyler Cameron

          Yeah, Verizon HAD to jam a 4G LTE logo in there, looks kinda overkill now that I’m used to the simple “4G” icon on my Nexus, but I like how they did the data in/out arrows properly, unlike Google.

  • http://www.facebook.com/objection89 Miguel Angel Portela

    I’ve been running a leak for a couple of weeks now. What makes this one any different?

    • kixofmyg0t

       Bug fixes mostly.

      I hear Webtop may have had changes too.

      • http://www.facebook.com/objection89 Miguel Angel Portela

        Thank you. I think I’ll just keep my build until the actual roll out. Too much work going back now lol :)

    • Knlegend1

      How is that going? Any issues to us non-believers or just me?

      • http://www.facebook.com/objection89 Miguel Angel Portela

        Not a single one, honestly. Its pretty perfect. If it rolled out in this state, I wouldn’t notice the difference. Plus, it is remarkably *close* to stock. 

        • kixofmyg0t

           Have you used webtop yet? Once someone either makes a Bionic ROM from the RAZR leak or we get a OTA i’m dropping Gummy on the spot. Don’t get me wrong I love Gummy and all but I have a Lapdock and I use webtop(safestrap back to stock) pretty often.

          • http://www.facebook.com/objection89 Miguel Angel Portela

            I’ve never used webtop before, honestly. I heard it runs fine but I can’t vouch for that. It should though judging by how perfectly everything else runs. 

  • Jeff Tycz

    OMG it doesn’t have 4.0.4!!!!!
    /sarcasm

  • RoadsterHD1

    Come on Bionic needs love too.

    • kixofmyg0t

       It does kinda suck…but we’re not far behind. In the meantime I hope you are running one of the many ICS builds out for us.

      • RoadsterHD1

        No I’m not. But I’m really happy with my Bionic, I’ve not had any or barley of the issues some people have had. My Data signal is great, may drop once or twice a week but returns after about 10 seconds. Performance wise i can’t stall it it barrels thru everything I throw at it. I run LPP and it looks great with signal23 themes for my widgets. My camera and all my apps run great. Updates are always fun I guess. I had my Droid1 rooted and had great fun with it but I was always messing with it, it became a High maintenance phone, and I just don’t want to have to think about it so much anymore. I LOVE my Bionic….. If fact, my daughter just got one too and came from D1 and she absolutely loves it. 

      • RoadsterHD1

        I was thinking about trading in my Bionic for a RAZR and yesterday i did a side by side comparioson cause a friend of mine has a RAZR and what I found blew me away. 
        1. I compared data speed in a fairly good area for speed. My Bionic was faster in the up and down loads on about 7 test I took. The RAZR dropped to 3G and my Bionic stayed in 4G. The RAZR eventually returned to 4G and retested them again. The average score were Bionic down was 8Mbps and UP 5 to 6Mbps. The RAZR was 7 to 8Mbps down and 1 to 3Mbps up. My down at my home is 20 to 28Mbps and up is the same.
        2. The screen on the RAZR is more color saturated than the Bionic, but looking further I discovered the reason for the saturation on the RAZR is because it has a blue tint to it. You can really see it if you look at the RAZR’s screen side ways. This causes the brightness to go down.. Bionic screen is brighter. The gray scale really tells the story. Bionic’s grey scale is blacker and whiter more true. The RAZR is blueish even greenish at times. Look at the power widget and you will see what I’m talking about. Open GOOGLE-MAPS and it’s obivious that the clarity and color is better on the Bionic. To make this more interesting I compared the GNex screen and it was worse than the RAZR. 
        3. The RAZR was faster onthe bench marks but in everyday use you will not notice the difference. 
        4. All the Verizon 4G phones have data drop issues, Bionic’s “were” worse but are just like or better than most now after the 902 update. 
        5. Pentile Screen can be seen in direct sun light, the other HD amoled screens can NOT. Pentile will show what’s called compression on low resolution video but that’s because Pentile is more focused and clear than the others. I use “Vplayer Version0.99 and Daroon Player and play back High Def 1080i video and it looks incredible, no compression and no lag. The video recording at 1080p look incredible. But put crappy video in and it will give you crappy video out. Colors in my opinion are more realistic than the RAZR. For poor quality video the Bionic tends to favor reds, so I use “screenadjuster” and “filter your screen” to adjust for this. Netflix has different resolution streams and you can tell the two. For the most part Netflix does and incredible job and the streaming looks great. Please know that different player play differently on any phone. The old version of VPlayer is allot better that the newer versions. Daroon player play high quality HD video very well.
        6. The speaker is louder on the Bionic.
        7. I decided to keep my Bionic and not get the RAZR or the RAZR MAXX.
        We have high end phones with high end screens, use high end video 

        • Franklin

          That wasn’t biased…..

        • Alexander Garcia

          About the display… that’s the only thing I miss from my DX2 that the RAZR Maxx doesn’t have. The bright BRIGHT display. And I actually prefer the cooler color temp of the DX2 and the Bionic over the RAZR’s “cartoon-ish” color temp and over-saturated color scheme.

        • Tyler Cameron

          Say what you want, but the PenTile screens on all of Motorola’s phones except the RAZRs makes my eyes hurt. Not that I like the RAZR…
          The Thunderbolt is better than the Bionic.

  • Guest

    Webtop still beta?…

  • ipodmypants

    whoops double post

  • will2Live

    WTH is wrong with Moto. Why are they even messing with 4.0.3 builds. Typical dumb ars idiots over there I swear

    • kixofmyg0t

       Please list the changes from 4.0.3 to 4.0.4. Then please list the process for releasing a update on a network that you do not own.

      I’ll wait. 

      • Butters619

        But bigger numbers! Lamp! Squirrel! Popsicles!!!

          lol

      • AndroidUser00110001

        There are over 100 changes made from 4.0.3 to 4.0.4 and all Moto has to do is update their project with a simple git command that will pull and merge the changes :)

        • KevinC

          that’s obviously too hard for their numbskull developers.

          • AndroidUser00110001

            It would start the whole process all over again for them so it would be another 5 or so month wait…

    DROID RAZR, not Razr!!! the Razr wont get any update until summer, or later :s

  • ipodmypants

    *sniffle* oh we poor neglected bionic owners … and by neglect I’m referring to official support, im talking to you moto/big red!  The devs have been a god send in allowing me to still geek out with custom roms just like the ol days with my og droid and DX.  the fact that we have an almost fully functional ics rom running off a gingerbread kernel … that’s outstanding.

    Congrats to you razr owners.  im jealous, not bitter mind you. everyone gripes about getting tricked or buying the wrong phone … get over it. something new is always around the corner.  
       

    • ipodmypants

      many of us who have been readers since day one can relate to wait for OS updates. just sit back and chill. no amount of crying to moto/big red is going to do anything.  have fun with roms and flashback when the official update comes rolling around.  Thats what turned to me reading DL and what made the android community fun.  I can still remember the tutorials on how to root my og droid.  the site has come a long way since then, not to mention become infected by trolls =/ 
      here’s to simpler times. TGIF

      • Tyler Cameron

        I hear ya. Remember when Verizon used to CARE about updates? And this was evident by the fact that the Droid was ALWAYS closely behind the Nexus One in terms of updates.

  • Mack

    Reminds me of when gingerbread was leaked for the Droid X, this is why Droid Life is awesome. 

    • kixofmyg0t

      My DX was running the GB leak literally minutes after it showed up on DL.

    I feel for all of you Moto owners having to go through this it’s the same way I felt with my DX and gingerbread update that was supposed to be released a week or so after I bought it. Took 10 months or so for that I’ll never go back and it looks like things are not going to change anytime soon.

    Another day, another ICS rumor. I just hope this is finally true. I’d love to finally have it on my MAXX (without rooting) but for now my GSM Nexus will do :) 

    • eckdawg5

      why are you afraid to root? if you need to go back to the OTA pathway you can just do a simple RSD Lite flash

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1295253546 Leonardo Conner Russell

        Not afraid but just need some help thats all. I’m on a mac and couldn’t seem to find a root and I’ve been with iOS for years so I’m better at jailbreaking then rooting. I’m assuming its close but just need someone to show me how to root different phones and then how to get them back to normal. 

        • eckdawg5

          Head over to droidhive.com or droidrzr.com. Less crowded than xda and there’s some ios and Linux users there. Good luck

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1295253546 Leonardo Conner Russell

            Thank you for the help, I’ll look into it, since I always have friends asking me to root their phones :) 

  • picaso86

    We need the OFFICIAL ICS. I am afraid to flash this, I feel that when the official OTA comes out it wont install… 

    • http://twitter.com/GRZLA Grizzly Atoms

      No one is making you flash this. 

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Man once you root… there’s nothing Official left… You use the rooted updates…. it’s never “not going to install” if you’re staying on one side of the fence.

      • http://profiles.google.com/bhinson15 Brandon Hinson

        Not always true. I’m rooted and am running official.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          Your “official” is was rooted before you flashed it. I’m pretty sure you didn’t just do the OTA from your carrier.

          • http://profiles.google.com/bhinson15 Brandon Hinson

            ahh but I do. OTA root keeper and Verizon updates it is for me. I don’t even need root anymore really. rooted to reinstall my apps from my old phone. now with foxfi and the razr maxx I don’t need root.

            Used to flash all the time… but now I enjoy having a phone with everything working. I’m super excited for ICS.. but I can wait a bit.

          • CivilDroid

            So I take it you are running the ICS leak then? How does foxfi work? If it works then I’m diving in asap!

  • tbaybe

    im sure most of us wont see it for weeks…. maybe months 

    • kixofmyg0t

      Try May 23rd.

      • Bob Martin

        oh thats the day it will get delayed? Thanks for the info.

        • kixofmyg0t

          Oh you mean the “Nexus” date got delayed again?? Man its going on 6 months now!

          • MKader17

            1. He never mentioned the Nexus, so you should probably stop putting your foot in your mouth and looking like a fanboy trying to attack anyone that talks badly about your preference.
            2. I don’t remember seeing any place where a date was pegged down for an update. Care to link me to it?

          • kixofmyg0t

            1: I did. What’s ur point?

            2: Nope. Stay tuned.

          • MKader17

            1.I’m saying that the first person you commented on this was obviously a Razr user and the second mentions nothing about the Nexus but you automatically assume that they are referencing that the Nexus is a better phone because it has ICS. The inferiority complex that you show pertaining to cell phones is unreal.

            2. You said delayed again and now you go back on your word when called out. AKA you are lying to get a rise out of people. Also known as a troll. So please leave.

          • kixofmyg0t

            1: Its called payback my friend. The Nexus has been on the same version of Android forever and phones are being released AFTER it with more current versions. Even phones before it are getting the update first. So what was this fuss about the Nexus getting updates before everyone else? Ha! 

            2: *I* said delayed again? Really? *I* said the RAZR update got delayed again? I never went back on my word. You need better glasses dude. I didnt say that to get a rise out of anyone. Thats just when the soak testis scheduled to end. Im thinking it will go live that night for rollout to the next morning….which is a thrusday….which is usually when updates hit for Verizon. You wanted me to post links? Too bad. Im not gonna post everything I know.

            who cares, the razr is locked, blur is bloated and UGLY, and this phone is loaded up with bloatware.

            hope you razr owners are enjoying your half-assed ROMs, while those of us with control over our phone can access the full capability with custom kernels.

          • kixofmyg0t

            O.o

            So cute to read owners of second rate phones argue…

            slow it down with the dumb stuff guys. im having trouble keeping with my drinks, and im still at work for another 4 hours

          • Steve

            Hope you are enjoying your half sized battery!  :)  Keep on charging while I walk around using my phone freely all day, and the next.

          • Josh Nichols

            The nexus does get updates first before everyone else dumbass, look at the HSPA version, not Verizon’s.

          • kixofmyg0t

             So either A, you don’t count the Verizon version as a Nexus or B can’t realize that we’re talking about the Verizon version.

            We’re talking about the CDMA Verizon “Nexus”. Do you understand now?

          • MKader17

            You seriously have your head so far up your ass you cant not read or make a post.

            1. You are continually proving my point that all you want to do is bash the Nexus and you really don’t care about anything else. There is one phone that has been released with ICS since the Nexus and was released 4 months later. THERE ARE NO PHONES BEFORE THE NEXUS WITH OFFICIAL ICS. Again, you are spouting off lies and looking like a moron.

            2.*You* are the one that needs glasses because *you* are then one that said the NEXUS has been delayed. For it to be delayed it would have to have AT THE VERY LEAST a rumored date, which you obviously can’t provide. So again, stop being a troll and leave. You are seriously getting worse than AngelFace.

          • kixofmyg0t

             Like I said before, I don’t have anything against the Nexus as a device. It’s the people who spout that it’s the best phone past present or future and EVERY single other phone is automatically fail because it isn’t called a Nexus.

            *YOU* need glasses my friend. I fired back at a post that said the RAZR update is going to be delayed by reiterating that the “Nexus” still doesn’t have a update at all….no “leak” no update schedule….nothing. That seems delayed to me.

            I was hoping you woulda figured out where I got the May 23rd date from since it was posted at this nifty little site called Droid-Life.

            Here’s the link that you wanted so badly.

            Oh and since you probably still won’t be able to see it here I’ll show a photo too. 

          • Anno Neemus

            Not trying to fuel the fire, but the SGS2 does actually have official ICS

          • Aschultz57

            Dude, shut up. Stop bickering. It’s a phone. You two are arguing like your in a relationship.

          • Josh Nichols

            The point is, you’re a faggot.

      • Josh Nichols

        May 23rd is weeks from now.

  • ceejw

    I really like how much Motorola is letting stock ICS shine through their skin.  I wish they would do something about their icons though.  The look godawful. 

    • kretz7

      They aren’t that bad dude. 

      • nsnsmj

        They’re not as bad as Samsung’s TouchWiz icons, but they are still bad compared to stock.

        • LiterofCola

          depends on the particular icons

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25001493 Hank Godwin

        Yes they are.

    • http://profiles.google.com/adamtruelove Adam Truelove

      If Blur (or whatever they call it now) is so minimal now, why not get rid of it entirely.  It’s like they refuse to admit defeat.

      • LiterofCola

        Didn’t realize it was a battle?

      • zepfloyd

        Because OEM’s have a vested business interest in differentiation, regardless if YOU personally want that or not. They also have a responsibility for the NON HAXORS crowd of keeping SOME familiarity with the system they’ve been accustomed to. That’s not a defense, just an admission of reality.

        • MKader17

          bit with each revision it looks more and more like stock Android. Is a crappy icon change really worth all the “differentiation”?

          Just stick to the widgets and small programs. It’s the only thing really worth a damn.

          • Tim_Horton

            Read what zepfloyd said again, this is going to be an UPDATE for anyone with (bionic? razr? at least) the last thing you want to do is pull the rug out from underneath people who actually use and understand blur and the icons. 

            Personally I think they have found a balance of what the majority really likes (if this really is infact THEIR skin).  It’s almost regular ICS, but still with a little flair to remind you you’re not on a soulless GED device with “generic android”.  

            If there was a way to update my former galaxy nexus to have “non zombie icons” I’d rather have the above than some of the stock android ones. 

            This is the first time (other than iphone and gopro) that actually looks like it will improve experience overall (as opposed to bugfix) with a software update. Pumped I am.

      • Sjschwar

        the amazon skin seems to be a selling point.  probably works better on tablets though.

      • angermeans

        I am willing to bet that it is far from minimal. The launcher may be close but I am willin to bet it ends there

    • Sjschwar

      i absolutely HATE the smiley face text icon and it’s square and grey just like the gchat and mail notification.  Needs some variations in shapes and colors

      • kixofmyg0t

         I absolutely HATE the AOSP text icon….as well as a few others. I like the Blur ones better.

        • Sjschwar

          at least that smiley face icon is facing the right way

          • kixofmyg0t

             You mean like (-; ?

            Really guy? THAT’S your beef with Moto’s icon? It’s not turned “killshot” style?

            I just hate the gawd awful shag carpet green the stock icon is.

          • Sjschwar

            I don’t think the “smiley” is a good icon for text to begin with, but if i had to choose, i want it smiling at me (AOSP), rather than sideways (blur).
            I liked the little envelope on my droidx the best.  distinguishable and not corny

          • LiterofCola

            Yeah, I would prefer the little envelope.

          • Sonbonez

            download a diff one in google play market

    • Butters619

      Although it doesn’t really matter, I’m glad that by default the app drawer is in the center.

    • angermeans

      Ughh I know it their icons are the worst.

  • ddfuji

    gotta get me some ice cream sandwhich :D

    • Franklin

      along with some spelling lessons…. :p

      • Knlegend1

        Lmao….

    • Bob Martin

      relax. the Ice Cream Sandwich is gonna melt before the Razr actually gets it.

      • kixofmyg0t

        True. But itll still be before the “G-Nex” gets it.

        • Apostrafee

          Nexus has ICS ya tard

          • kixofmyg0t

            Whoa it has 4.0.3 OTA already? Didnt know that.

          • Apostrafee

            Mine does…and he said the Razr will get Ice Cream Sandwhich….the “G-Nex” already does…do you have the Razr?

          • kixofmyg0t

             Wow, I wasn’t award that Verizon released the 4.0.3 OTA update to Galaxy Nexus users…..cuz that’s what we’re talking about….4.0.3 ICS OTA.

            Let me break it down for you. The “G-Nex” is still “officially” stuck at 4.0.2 on Verizon. The RAZR will get 4.0.3 before the “G-Nex” gets anything.

            My Bionic has 4.0.4, though unofficial….doesn’t make it any different than your “Nexus”.

          • Apostrafee

            Oh no I understand what you meant…but yeah your Bionic is definetly different from my G-Nex haha and now I understand why you’re hatin…I have a Nexus and a Razr as well…best of both worlds….but yeah that explains your irrational comments

          • kixofmyg0t

             Different hardware yeah, but they are both bound by the carrier. “Nexus” or not the only way to 4.0.4 is through custom ROM’s.

          • Apostrafee

            Ahh yes but no one can really tell me the MASSIVE benefit the official 4.0.4 will bring to the Galaxy Nexus

          • kixofmyg0t

             I havn’t seen much difference between 4.0.3 and 4.0.4 myself. What I HAVE noticed is alot of backround data use from Android OS. I’m already past 2GB 5 days into my billing cycle.

          • Apostrafee

            Been getting the same thing, and battery life has gotten worse….maybe ill pop back on the Razr what with this ICS build looking so promising

          • Zodo27

            What bionic rom are you running

          • kixofmyg0t
          • will bartlett

            i have 4.0.4. tis nice.

          • MKader17

            When did Google state that any version below 4.0.3 is not considered an ICS device? Please, I would love a link.

            Again, my personal advice to you would to stop trying to look like someone who has a personal vendetta against the Galaxy Nexus by bringing it up before anyone even mentions it.

          • kixofmyg0t

             I don’t have a vendetta against the device in itself, just it’s hardcore fanboys that bash EVERYTHING else because it’s not a Nexus. If you have a Nexus, and realize that maybe not EVERYONE wants a Nexus and not every other phone is complete fail…then I have no problem with you and wish you a good day.
