Radios From Galaxy Nexus IMM76K 4.0.4 Pulled and Available to Flash

When the new IMM76K Android 4.0.4 update leaked yesterday for the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon, many of us focused immediately on the new radios that came with it. Could these solve many of the hand-off issues and failures to attach to 4G networks that owners have experienced since day one? Only one way to find out and that’s by flashing them to your phone. Thanks to XDA member mwalt2, a flashable .zip is available for you after the break. 

Download:  4.0.4_IMM76K_radios_btldr.zip

*For rooted users. File will need to flashed in a custom recovery.

Before flashing, be sure to create a backup. As far as compatibility goes, this file is said to work with any VZW Nexus build, including your favorite ROMs.

Personally, I can’t say that I’m all of a sudden having the time of my life on the network connectivity front after updating to these radios and 4.0.4. A couple of times now I have had to completely turn my phone off and back on again to regain signal after it seemingly lost it. Are you having any better luck? New radios helping?

    My connection always sucks with my verizon Gnex. GPS never knows where I am, and I have trouble connecting to facebook and other apps. My wifes 3g iphone always has service. I never had these problems with my old DroidX. Is there anything I can do to improve this? radios? I am rooted running Bugless Beast.

    • CrackMonkey

      I’m running Jelly Bean on a Verizon GNEX Bugless Beast first release and I don’t have any problems. Sounds like you should go back to ICS if things are that bad.

  • SecurityNick

    Has anyone noticed that the speaker phone sounds louder, or is it just me?

  • Crack Monkey

    So I’ve been running 4.0.4 for a couple days now and I can report that overall the phone is running better. WIFI to 4g/3g hand offs are smooth and unnoticed. No unusual reboots. UI is smoother with no hiccups.

    I’m running AOKP M5 with the new radios and while I haven’t seen a noticeable difference in my signal I have noticed my battery life has increased. Just my 2 cents.

    Is this only for the 4g Verizon version? Can I update my rooted gsm 4.0.4?

    • MichaelCrackMonkey

      Yes this is for the Verizon CDMA 4G version. There is a different version that was previously released for GSM.

    I have downloaded this 3 different times, wheni click on it to open it in the downloads icon from the app drawer, it says “cannot open file”. what the hell is going on? any tips?

    These radios are definitely better than the stock 4.0.2 radios. They seem to perform exactly the same as the older leaked versions of 4.0.4 tho.

    I just bought a nexus today (I guess yesterday now). Had 3g data for only about 10 minutes out of the first hour. No 4g at all. Then I unlocked and installed imm76k and Instantly got 4g at firstboot. Only problem was that my signal strength was going up and down like 30dbm every second.

    It holds 4G better for sure.  And seems to switch quicker most of the time.

    However, like Kellex, I too have had a couple of big issues today.  Once was after a phone call, and once was when I simply toggled to CDMA-only at my office (like I always have in the past since 4G is a struggle there).  Both times I also had to power off and back on, and even then it was EXTREMELY slow to get any sort of signal back.

    So in some ways I see improvement, but in other ways it seems a bit worse if I was totally honest.  

    • jnt

      And yes I toggled AP mode, used the restart connections app, etc – before powering down.  

      But it’s definitely holding 4G in a couple of places it couldn’t before.

    Flashed over AOKP Milestone 5, haven’t seen a difference yet and I’m in a borderline 4G area outside   of Buffalo.  Maybe I’ll notice something in my travels tomorrow

  • izzyxDD

    im running miui ics, this going to screw with anything?

  • Scott

    Droidth3ory over at the droidhive had this for us yesterday. FYI…….

  • r0lct

    Just running .3/.4 that’s been out forever seemed to make a big improvement in handoff s from .2.

  • Willzbar

    Help please. I have been doing a back up with CWM and during the backing up data part it stops at
    eas_-1687045439tmp. It has done this a couple of times now. I’m trying to back up so I can flash the new radios. Anybody know why it keeps doing this?

    Thx
    Will

    • Lunaticmo87

      Backing up doesn’t back up radios and bootloader. So it’s not fully necessary.

      • Willzbar

        OK, thank you.
