Galaxy Nexus 4.0.4 IMM76K Update Apparently Rolling Out in Small Batches

Yep, that is a screenshot of the 4.0.4 IMM76K update for the Galaxy Nexus that is apparently rolling out to a select group of users. Well, either a select group or in super small batches. We have a handful of readers who claim to have received the update, however, we keep checking with folks on Twitter and almost everyone is coming up empty. Keep on checkin’!

Update: Β If you look through the comments, it certainly sounds like it is indeed rolling out to quite a few G-Nex owners. Settings>About phone>System updates!

Update 5/31: Β The update is still rolling out in small batches from what we can tell. It’s about 50/50 for users finding the update available in the comments. I hate to say “be patient” but that’s about all we can say.

Cheers Steve, Sean and Joseph!

  • Today at approximately 6:25mst I received a pop up that I needed to download the update and I did download it I still have no ideawhat this update added if possible pllease reply to me and let me know what is added to my phone!!

  • Sandman366

    Anyone got any idea why mine doesn’t work right? Starts to “update”, then does the green droid icon open like R2D2 with a door saying something is wrong. Pulling battery lets me boot, but the update itself doesn’t work. And it constantly is asking to apply something that doesn’t work. I’ve tried like 4-5 times…similar results each time…

  • Will I receive the update if I’m running 4.0.4 IMM30B?

  • jasdempsey

    My phone finally downloaded the update, today 5 June 2012.

  • so i tried the framework trick yesterday like 10 times with no luck, tried just now with wifi on and it worked second time, i think wifi is the trick..

  • desperate

    Texas got it yet?

  • achaf86

    Nothing in northwest Ohio yet I even did that trick 20 times and got nothing!!!! πŸ™

    UPDATE: I just received it @ 9:32am est

    • MikeSaver

      Am I the only one in the world who hasn’t received it? Do you need to be on 4G to get the update? I don’t get 4G in my house (signal extender). -Boston, MA

      • achaf86

        No u don’t all I did was went to settings app all then click google framework clear data but didn’t force close it the last time then it finally showed up!

  • K

    Still not received here in southern Indiana.

  • steveP

    Got it overnight. Woohoo!

  • wickets

    Finally…..yippeeeeeeeeeeee

  • itheman23

    How I just manually got my stock 4.0.4 OTA update… Went to Apps; Running; Google Framwork Services; Clear Data; About Phone; Check for updates date shows 1969; Check Now; Boom IMM76K is downloading as I share this with you.

  • AndroidUser

    I received the OTA around 10:45pm PST, I’m in So-Cal as well.

  • msnight04

    I just received the OTA around 11:00pm PST. I’m located in So-Cal.

  • yellowcanary73

    You all enjoy your G/N done with it just traded mine for the RAZR Maxx. Loving it

    • yellowcanary73

      Did the same thing and all I can say after 10 hours still 90% G/N would have been charge twice.

  • Captain Johnny

    cool…

  • sofarsogoodsowhat

    Got it, Cincinnati OH

  • Arturo Ledesma

    got it, got it, got it. Hopefully this can help someone.
    I got home to my wifi and the download started automatically. THANKS GOOGLE.

  • elden avila

    Just got mine 10 min ago I’m in North Carolina (visiting from LA)

  • Lol I just received mine while reading the comments fyi I’m just outside Chicago

  • Stereopc

    I got the 4.0.4 update tonight.

  • Bigsike

    Ok so upon getting the OTA and during the reboot to install all I’m getting is a flying Andy with a red exclamation point. It will not go any further has anyone else seen this? I am rooted and bootloader unlocked but that’s it no other mods. Little help πŸ™‚

  • Predd

    Holy crap! The Google Framework trick actually worked! Downloading the update as I’m typing this. Here’s hoping it fixes my rebooting issues.

  • Just got mine too! Metro Atlanta area (although i’m not sure that matters much). This morning I tried the Google Framework trick about 20 times and no dice. I just did it now, once, and it immediately popped up. Update took about 3 minutes to complete with no issues

  • finally got it! tried the “google services” trick about 5-6 times and bam, there’s the update. been a happy gnex owner since it launched. looking forward to the next nexus.

  • yellowcanary73

    Is this update going to help me get more then 3 to 4 hours out of my phone with the extended battery.

  • guess this shows you what a low priority this is for verizon

  • Dingus

    Wow. The biggest irony in your post is that you can’t spell buffoon correctly, nor if, nor guarantee.

    I suppose you are the uneducated buffoon now. It’s a good thing you make a living using your phone, hopefully for speaking because you certainly cannot spell.

  • Cloudy Shades

    Just got the update and GNex is in process right now.

    FWIW: Got first GNex about a week after launch, but exchanged with VZ for refurbished one about a week ago because of data connection issues and got tired waiting to see if software alone was the problem (never suffered from microphone issue). Located in Maryland, was on Wifi but not plugged in.

    Also, tried the method described below maybe 10 times this morning to no immediate result, but after one more clear/force stop, letting phone sit without manually checking for update, there it finally was about an hour later. Don’t know if it might work for you, but worth a shot…

    Once it opens clear data and force stop it. Hit home/settings/about phone/check for updates.
    May take a few tries. I have not done this method but have read about it many times. Seems easy.
    I only had to do it three times.

    • ChoppyCaller

      Thanks, worked for me. Took about 3 times. Well, more like 8, but the first 5 times I forgot to hit clear data and only hit force stop.

      I hope this fixes my call issues.

      • I did that a dozen times,got nothing

    • br_hermon

      Didn’t work for me… I actually found this “trick” on several different websites. Some say it may take many tries. Well, after 21 tries, I gave up… More waiting for me…

      *Edit* This may be unrelated but I doubt it. After trying this trick my Gnex is no longer listed as a device on Google Play’s website. It may show up again over time, but it’s worth warning people about.

      • Cloudy Shades

        Well that’s an interesting development. Hope it syncs up soon. Google says there’s no way to manually add device to your Google Play account, but since doing factory reset before hasn’t been a problem, I assume clearing out that ‘google services framework’ data won’t be a problem. Just downloaded an app from Google Play on my phone, and that went off without a hitch, so I’m not really worried.

        More info about Google Play device listing here: https://support.google.com/googleplay/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=1141080

        • br_hermon

          Same here (downloaded an app from GP on my phone). I forgot to mention, on my phone, “My Apps”, several of the apps that previously showed as needing updated, are no longer listed (If I didn’t know any better, it looks as if all my apps are up to date). I agree with you, its probably not a problem, but figured it was at least worth noting.

    • Scott

      Crazy you got it twice, when some of us haven’t seen it.

    • hushdrops

      Holy crap it worked . On wifi, cleared, stopped , then checked update , last check status was then stated as 1969 following clearing framework, checked , update found . Ready to click on restart and install now . Major thanks !

      • hushdrops

        Update completed , spell check is now working as I type this , landscape keyboard is still sluggish but useable. Hopes aren’t too high as this and speed of rotation were issues for me … so far no wins as I’m finishing typing this , darn landscape keyboard is Super Slow just as it always has been!! Signal is the same . Scared to try the camera .

    • No go for me after 5 tries.

  • Miles

    Anyone get it yet in Northern VA, Washington DC area?

    • Nope.

    • Scott

      Nothing in the Baltimore region either.

  • Markuz

    Small “Batches” that means 5 or 10 owners per state… F*** You Verizon!!

  • juniorsgv

    totally time to start complaining. its been darn near 24 hrs, and still nothing. out of my group of 3 nexus’s no one has gotten update. and we all got several months apart.

  • Goatweed

    Still no update here, NYC. What the hell?

  • Got tired of waiting so I rooted without unlocking the boot loader put the update on the sdcard and moved it to the /cache folder with root browser. Rebooted into recovery and flashed from there.

    • just did it 3 times, totally doesnt work..

      • JoeC

        Did you hit clear data before force close each time? Try it a few more times. I thought I was getting punked with this method but it worked for me.

        • JoeC

          And after clearing data, my system update screen would show last update of “12/31/69” before hitting the check now button. So I new the data was cleared out from prior check.

          • JoeC

            knew not new

          • JoeC

            knew not new

        • yea i did hit clear data, it also show up 12/31/69 for me, the person above siad they did it 8 times, i’ll go for 10, if that doesnt work ill just wait it out

          • well theres 10 times, no update :/ after doing the clear data+force stop, you go home then back to settings to check for the update right? thats what i did and didnt work..

          • JoeC

            Yes, after clear and force stop, I went back home then back to settings and about phone. Then when no update, back home then apps to clear and force stop again. Occasionally, after clear & stop, I would go back to apps to make sure it was stopped (1 time it had restarted for some reason).

          • JoeC

      Worked for me. Thanks.

    • achaf86

      I did this a few times, and now I cannot download any apps in google play! My device doesn’t show up! but I never got the update πŸ™

  • just saw this on a thread.. A guy on the VZW community just had this to say:
    “I Have confirmation that the update went live yesterday and that it will be rolling out to all customers with in the next 10 days. It is released in batch based on phone serial numbers. If you have not received the update by then you can manually update by going into settings after day 10.” http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=26814064

  • Curious

    I am stock 4.0.2 with unlocked boot loader and rooted. Still haven’t gotten the update. Is it because my boot loader is unlocked?

  • metakarma

    Verizon CSR told me google is sending OTA update
    By serial number. Can’t tell me where I am in the list! Wtf πŸ™

    • yellowcanary73

      Call bullshit on this coming from a Verizon CSR unless they were in the restroom.

    • well after having 5 of them,god only knows how far down the list I am

  • damn I wish it was soon now, really hoping this turns my pos into a super phone, or at least one I can depend on

  • will Verizon send me the update if my bootloader is unlocked & rooted?

  • Mike

    Just wondering if I get the update OTA if my bootloader is unlocked but I’m completely stock? Noob question I know.

  • Nothing here. This is getting really boring!

  • MikeSaver

    Me want it now! I bet there’s someone that has no idea what this update is getting updated, meanwhile I’ve been spamming the damn “Check Now” button for months!

    • 4n1m4L

      There are instructions for installing it manually without rooting. I did it. You do temporarily unlock the boot loader, but you can lock it again later. I just sign in, set up my home screen again and that was it

  • Ricky

    Nothing in Modesto, CA 12:31 pm

  • gpzbc

    Ugh, still nothing here. I’m sick of waiting.

  • Johnny Fitton

    I’m completely stock but rooted, will I lose root with this update?

    • Scott

      Yes. A simple search will turn up the new su.zip file that easily roots it.

  • yellowcanary73

    Remember Verizon only has 1 CSR to take calls they had to close all the call centers to pay the CEO his 100 million dollar salary and the only phone is in the mens room. Thats the reason they can only release to ten phones a day.

    • JenniferLarson

      hey yellow, you should start your own cell phone company and show them how it is done.

      • yellowcanary73

        Yes I should I wouldn’t do any worse.

  • Jim

    Honest Question: I got a nexus like 5 days ago. It says it is on 4.0.2. Will I eventually be getting the 4.0.4 update? Noob question I know, but very curious.

    Thank you.

    • Scott

      If you’re not rooted or running a custom recovery, it will eventually be pushed. If you don’t know what that means, it will eventually be pushed.

      • Jim

        Thank you Scott.

    • 4n1m4L

      Yes. Unless you do something like unlock AND flash a from your in the same boat as the rest of us

  • Still nothing for me in Phoenix AZ.

  • NexusUser

    What is the best, or trust source to learn how to root and install 4.04 and future updates on a Verizon Galaxy Nexus?

    • Bigsike

      Root now and get Voodoo root keeper for when you get 4.04.

      • socal_jnunez

        does not work lost root had areroot

  • Wondering if those who received the previous 4.0.4 build will see an OTA to the new build or are we not entitled to the fixes in IMM76K??

  • EvanTheGamer

    7:55AM PST and nothing yet. WTF Verizon!

  • LucasMonroe

    No update yet here in TN.

    Refreshed mine around 12:30 last night and it started the update. So far so good with EVERY issue I’ve had.

  • Ishan

    If this update is going to make a difference to you, you’re not doing Android right.

  • *Damn you Steve, Sean and Joseph!

    FTFY

  • I have not gotten the Update yet!!!! I hope to get it before the weekend!!!!

  • pcguru30

    If I am running CM9 would it tell me theres an update? I just checked manually and it’s still saying i have the latest version. I’m curious to see if there’s any signal difference between running CM9 and the new stock version

    • InyRules

      When running a custom ROM, your phone will no longer have official updates pushed to it. Your updates now come from the latest version of CyanogenMod.

      • pcguru30

        makes sense.. so Im wondering if I have been having signal issues, but im running CM 9 with the leaked radios, is it wise to go back to this new stock or should I just wait for CM to incorporate this update into a nighly?

        • InyRules

          Um, ARE you having signal issues? This is a bit unclear to me. But, if I were rooted and running a custom ROM, I wouldn’t go back to stock just to get an update. If there is anything groundbreaking for stability in the official update, developers will incorporate it into their ROMs. All you have to do now is flash the new radios. However, if your radios are fine now, there is no need for you to flash new radios. You can do whatever you want, which is the power of root πŸ™‚

          • pcguru30

            Sorry for the lack of clarity, Ive had my nexus for all of 3 days and the highest Ive seen my signal go up is 2 bars and that’s in places where my previous Droid X was getting full signal. Verizon says its not a phone problem and googling the issue it seems like signal problems are not uncommon with the nexus so if its not the hardware I’m left to believe its the software. I’m currently using the FC04/FC05 baseband that was leaked (before updating to the leaked baseband i only had one bar so it gave me a whole extra bar woohoo!) So I guess I really just need to know whether they updated the baseband again with this update, if not then I probably wont see a signal difference by going back to the new stock

          • InyRules

            It’s the same baseband that you’re running now. Everything about this update is the same as the small leak that happened May 1st. Cheers.

          • trade it for a maxx

  • still nothing

  • i dont know if people have already tried this, but i read it may help push the update to your phone.. type in this in your dialer; *#*#checkin#*#* just type that in the dialer and after several seconds you will see a new notification that says “checkin succeeded”. You can run the checkin command as often as you want. i dont know if it will help, i’ve tried it myself a few times and it just keeps saying “checkin succeeded” in the notification bar.

    • After being an Android owner for 3 years, I can tell you this does nothing. Your phone will get the update when you’re due for it, no earlier.

      • damn, well i figured it was worth the try.. =[

        • Yeah, there are all sorts of tricks that you can do to make your phone get the update faster, but I’m pretty sure none of them work. The only way you’re gonna get it faster is if you download it, and apply it yourself by unlocking your phone.

  • Mario

    Noob question here.. Do I need to unroot and go back to 4.0.2 in order to install this update?

    Thanks

    • InyRules

      If you are rooted and using a stock 4.0.2 ROM, this will break your root. If you are running another ROM other than stock 4.0.2, you won’t even see this update prompt.

    • JoshGroff

      To take an OTA you have to be on stock and maybe have the bootloader locked (at least you do with HTC.)

      Root doesn’t matter but make sure to preserve with Voodoo.

    • Not a noob question- it’s being asked everywhere. I’m running 4.0.3 AKOP. If anyone knows, please post πŸ™‚

  • McKay

    I received the update this morning from Verizon. I’m happy to say the rotation lag seems corrected and I notice a faster response time. However, my battery life is still atrocious.

    • Can you go to Settings/About phone and tell us what your Baseband version is please?

      • McKay

        It is I515.10V.FC04/I515.FC05

        • Wait a minute. So this is slightly different from the version that showed up earlier this month. Mine is 09 V not 10 V

          • No, that has nothing to do with the radio. That’s your hardware radio revision number. For all intents and purposes, there is absolutely no difference between V.09 and V.10.

          • Gotcha

      • McKay

        It is I515.10V.FC04/I515.FC05.

  • Please, please, someone who applies the OTA, post the Baseband version so we can can compare it to the update that showed up earlier this month.

    • Jeff

      It’s the same 1515.09 V.FC04/1515.FC05

      • Ok cool, thanks. I was hoping it wasn’t. I have applied the IMM76K that popped up last month and now my phone constantly switches from 3G to 4G when I’m in range of both a 3G and a 4G tower. Before this update, my phone would stay locked on to 4G all the time.

    Any idea if this improves the battery life??

  • Nothing here is Mass, near Boston πŸ™

    • Waiting patiently for Metro Boston as well

      • Mike

        Waiting in RI…hoping my GF in MA gets the update soon too because she has had an awful time with the mic muting and dropping calls on a regular basis. Let’s hope it fixes something.

        • MikeSaver

          im in Boston and have nothing.

  • JS

    Got the update this morning! Already experiencing 4g reception from towers that I did not before. Albuquerque, New Mexico

    • Can you go to Settings/About phone and tell us what your Baseband version is please?

      EDIT: Got the information I need. So nevermind.

  • Marco De Paulis

    so what determines the order of who gets the update? i have yet to see it and i’ve been “checking for updates” all morning…

  • Nothing in Central Florida

  • so at this rate it seems we will all have it by december,,, maybe lol

  • So is the battery life better? I read that it is not even addressed.

  • Still waiting. We have the Bionic as well and remember getting an update about 2 – 3 weeks after some first started receiving it. We’ll see what happens.

  • Am i going to run into issues updating if i changed my softkeys using jrummys toolbox?

  • @ScottyfromGA

    so-so glad I’m not one of those that are pounding the system update on my Gnex….lol. Been using this update for a month now. But, I’ll ask the same question…..is it exactly the same leaked or does it have more goodies?

    • InyRules

      Yes. It’s the same.

  • William Farrell

    No update here, Long Island…checked at 8:45AM. Running Stock rooted 4.0.2.

    • L9VYWmcJXO

      Nothing in queens either

      • i’m surprised you two dont have it, buffalo got it, thought they would have done all of the NY area, im up in RI, nothing here

        • InyRules

          I don’t think it’s based on location, but on the serial numbers on the phones.

          • oh, that sucks for me, i only got my phone just under 2 months ago, so im probably way down the line

          • InyRules

            That’s just what I heard on another site. It could be completely random for all we know.

    • JustTrollin69

      Long Island FTW!

  • It has the same radios as the leaked IMM76K so if your on a custom rom with these radios then you should be fine and won’t have to worry about waiting for new radios

  • RW-1

    Really torn now ….
    Ok, those of us on IMM30B and have a nice working phone, is it really really really worth it to go back to go forward at this point?

    • Jwhap

      I did last month. Some say the radios are not as good on 76 but I don’t really see much of a difference. If anything it may be good just for easier future updating. If you are rooted just back everything up.

      • RW-1

        I’m halfway there, but either I can wait until someone compiles it into a full 4.0.4 (dev’s love to do that, or google itself) and/or just flash the new radios. I don’t believe we’ll see anything else until JB, but hope I’m wrong.

  • Is this identical to the IMM76K I manually updated to this past weekend?

    • Jwhap

      That is the only question I have….. I would bet so.

    • zepfloyd

      Yes.

  • summit1986

    Is there no way to push updates in AOKP?
    Settings>About phone>System updates doesn’t exist. I know, rooted, ROM… blah, blah, blah… just asking.

    • Jwhap

      No but I would assume the folks at AOKP have already started working these new fixes into their ROM.

      • Tony Allen

        These ‘fixes’ are already part of their ROMs.. this update isn’t new, it’s just new to being OTA’d

  • chargerman165

    This is officially the best phone I have ever owned. I have had many. Recently the Gnex, Maxx and iPhone. Just disconnected the Maxx yesterday and going to wait and see what ICS does for it. Had freeze up problems. Gnex pretty much works flawlessly. If update makes it work better then GREAT!

  • Tyler

    Time to start checking every 15 minutes now. Does anyone know of a widget or app that checks for you every set interval of time? And if it had a notification when there is one that would be great!

    • DroidzFX

      YourFinger App

      • Dingus

        Are you sure that’s the name of it? I keep looking in the play store for it and I can’t find anything.

  • MuteCallsSux

    Does this update fix the mute call issue??

    • brad truelove

      That’s what I’m screaming… I’ve yet to learn if it’s a hardware or software issue causing that. Having calls regularly muting after five minutes into a call ranks pretty high on the get it fixed list.

      • I know what you mean, i’m on my 5th gnex,all had the same problem,, you have all these fanboys who have been running it for a month or so and say everything is so perfect, then others say this updates still have many problems, so have the fanboys been lying ? I know they just cant say anything bad about their idol. i’m hoping it fixes all this crap

        • Liderc

          I wish you’d just get another phone. You literally ruin every post with your 17th Gnex problem.

          GET A DIFFERENT PHONE.

          • brad

            rofl

        • Jason Naylor

          I have a Gnex and it’s fine. A little buggy on 4.0.2, but not a problem. Many bugs were fixed when I updated to 4.0.4. I am not a fanboy, If a phone’s crap then it’s crap. But I have enjoyed this phone, and so have other people. If you’re that miserable I think you would’ve rooted and ROM’d to try and fix your problem.

        • will bartlett

          you are a crybaby, plain and simple.

      • Jwhap

        I think it may be a little of both. The update seems to take care of it…. mostly. I still have it happen once in a while though, not nearly as often as it was doing it.

      • Lucky Armpit

        The documents released by Verizon state that is does fix the muting issue. I assume the much-rumored Samsung update is bundled with 4.0.4. Again, that’s rumor. Fingers are crossed because if this doesn’t fix it, I’m getting rid of this phone. I have no choice. And before people start yelling at me to install a custom ROM, they don’t fix the one-way audio issue so there’s no point. Phone is useless if I can’t make phone calls.

    • Brian

      I’ve had it happen twice, since updating.

  • achaf86

    Nothing in Northwest Ohio πŸ™

  • kfath1978

    Empty…..Columbus, OH.

  • Trevor

    Is it time to start complaining about the next update yet?

    • InyRules

      I think we’re good until Google pushes the next version of Android. When that happens we’ll all call in and complain to Verizon, only for them to tell us “It’s not for this version of the phone. This one’s fine.”

      • michael arazan

        Called verizon, the rep said it could take up to 3 weeks to get this update. FBS

        • lazlo

          They just told me 5-6 weeks.

          • Joseph Mueller

            I was in the store last night about something unrelated – two different reps had NO IDEA what I was talking about when I asked about this.

    • seriously, i’m tired of waiting for jellybean on my nexus. damn you verizon!

  • Marclar

    Is it known what determines when someone receives the update? I have heard mixed theories based that it’s on when you bought the phone or what region you are in.

    • i’ve tried the changing the date forward method, i did a month, but didnt work. thats the only method i know

    • Medications

      It must be region, my girlfriend and i were among the first few people in line the day it came out and haven’t received any update yet

  • donnydee

    great a update that fixes nothing.

    • geedee82

      great a dumbass that knows nothing

  • So… to those that have received the update. How has your life changed for the better ?
    Is your dog now not infested with fleas and your cat hair ball free ?
    IMHO 404 is so yesterday.
    I like Verizon however buying a phone through VZW is like buying a Corvette with a Briggs & Stration engine.

  • wickets

    I was first in line at nj Verizon store the day this phone came out, ergo i will be very last customer in USA to receive update lol

    • you and me both. No update for me yet (western north carolina)

      • brad truelove

        Northwest Harnett County is still idle also.

          Nash County (eastern NC), and nothing here either.

      • jorge

        No update here either . Fort Lauderdale, florida

    • palomosan

      Yep, got it the same day it came out, hopefully that means I’ll be one of the first ones to get the freaking delay update.

    • Marco De Paulis

      lol same! first one to get it at my local store, have yet to see any kind of update and i’ve been checking all day…(NJ)

    • Matthew DiGiacomo

      same here lol nothing yet in philly

  • Steve

    That’s good news. Finally. Although I’ve had the official 4.0.4 update since Google released it, I’m glad other Gnex users get to have a better ICS experience.

  • thegoodshot

    Had an update prompt waiting as of 6am ET when I woke up. Finished updating by the time my snooze alarm went off. Already seems snappier.

  • Nicholas Fur

    And the Razr fans idly stand by .__. Enjoy your update guys.

    • picaso86

      I cant wait until my Maxx gets ICS – The perfect phone for me! πŸ™‚

  • Evo

    stupid noob question…

    im running aokp 37…i cant download this update because im rooted correct?

    • Tim242

      You can’t…nor should you want to.

      • Dingus

        But what if he does want to?

        • Tim242

          Anybody on AOKP is already on 4.0.4, with many more options. Going OTA would be going backwards.

  • nothing here in socal

    • hushdrops

      Nothing in Louisiana either as of yet

  • boiiiiii

    Turned 4G on and waiting. If this doesn’t fix my mute mic issue I’m going into Verizon, ripping my shirt in half, screaming “hulk smash POS nexus!!!” while flipping over the table full of tablets. Then throwing both my nexus phones past customer service so that they explode against the wall behind them and proceed to run away before they catch me. Serious.

    • yellowcanary73

      If I dont have it by Friday and it doesnt fix the major problems I have trading it in for the Maxx.

      • Word on the street is that it fixes reboots, lag, and audio chirping, but not the one way audio loss.

        • if the mic still cuts off,im done with it,hoping thats not the case

          • delete

          • I’ve had 4.0.4 for five days, and so far, not a single drop, mic issue
            or chirp! Keeping my fingers crossed though. How bout you?

      • chargerman165

        Bad mistake. Have both and selling MAZZ. Great battery life but freezes a lot. Haven’t had any problems with Nexus.

      • chrisc2u

        I traded the Gnex for a Maxx two weeks ago and have been very happy with the decision. I love the battery life and haven’t had any freezing. The 4g/3g switching on my Gnex was poor and is seemless with the Maxx. I also had trouble with Bluetooth devices staying connected and working consistently on the Gnex, no issues at all with the Maxx. I am sure someone may have had the opposite experience or opinion, but for me, the Maxx is perfect.

        • Towelie420

          Dumb

        • ABerry5

          Whatever I have is amazing and whatever you have freezes.. mix cuts out.. and lags..

          Lol so sick of android on Android trolling.. I’ve had a gnex since jan I’ve yet to have a dropped call.. my roommate has a maxxx the thing is awesome other than support will be dropped for it upon the new moto phone faster than jack nikulaus dropped off that golf tourney yesterday

    • el habra

      Do you have to be on 4g to receive the update? Can’t you get it over wifi?

      • dqw

        Doesn’t matter got mine on wifi

      • Marlon

        Will i get the update if I keep it on 3g ?? Or does it have to be on 4g/wifi ?

        • LionStone

          My last update for TB I downloaded in 1X, you will get it no problem…its fairly small update anyway.

        • j__h

          Some people live in non 4g areas

    • KleenDroid

      I think you will be ok when you get it.

  • Sean Pharris

    Mine just finished!! Weird thing though, I got the notice right before turning off my phone for the night, was just barely saved!

  • Richard Jackson

    Nothing happening in NV. Going to bed and hope to see it in the morning.

  • evltwn

    Nothing here for me in Phoenix.

    • michael arazan

      Nothing is Saint Louis MO, not even the displays at the verizon store are updated

  • Bobby

    Where is my Thunderbolt update? …. Just doing the same thing you whiny fanboys were doing when an update would come to other phones. Posting in the other threads that had nothing to do with a Nexus. ” Where’s my update, 6 months since an update on a Nexus that’s bull s@#$.” And once you get an update I read comments like ” what only 36 meg.” Thanks for the laugh.

    • Bobby

      And for the record I had 2 nexus’ over the course of 2 days and the radios on this phone are garbage so I know what I am talking about, I have owned the phone I am talking about. Keep drinking the Nexus flavored Kool-Aid.

      • Colin Zack

        good for you? does crying on here help you feel better?

        • Bobby

          I don’t care regardless, just giving the nexus threads the same love that nexus followers give on other threads that have nothing to do with the device they own. Everything I posted in the above posts is a fact. Deal with it.

          • Colin Zack

            Sure thing. Whatever helps you sleep at night. I love my Nexus and my Mom hates her thunderbolt but more power to you

          • Bobby

            Then she must hate a phone that she actually can make a call from with out it dropping the call, and oh she also must hate the fact she gets a reliable data connection as well. Oh and she must hate the fact that she can have her data on 3g and still surf the internet and talk on the phone at the same time. Try that on the Nexus.

          • yep

      • only two ? i’ve had 5 since day one in dec, but i’ll wait and see if this fixes issues or not,if not i’m trading it for a maxx

  • Droid4LifeDawg

    My AOKP b37 is working just great, I’ll wait for the next build, it should include it if something’s missing… And am I the only one that has not seen this Settings>About phone>System updates! since my Bionic days… I don’t have a “System Update”

  • SeanBello

    “And you too shall be healed” lol

  • EvanTheGamer

    Nothing on my end yet, but will check frequently.

  • BuffaloNY

    Updating as we speak

    • In Buffalo as well…Nothing yet.

  • already had it. thank you #cm9

  • Byron

    but the bugs that supposedly they’re fixing with this OTA aren’t even half the bugs -__- I’m bummed

    • msnight04

      Many of the bugs people complain about have been fixed in 4.0.3 and 4.0.4. The change log Verizon posted is simply crap. Expect this update to fix many, if not, most of your concerns.

      • Byron

        I hope so they should really take the time to put the whole list.. I hate Verizon sometimes.

        • msnight04

          Don’t we all…

  • Buffalo, NY area

    Updating as we speak

  • yellowcanary73

    So what another 6 months before we get it.What a joke its only 35 megs you doing this from the toilet.

  • D

    Mine just came through πŸ™‚ installing now

  • Murphy

    Testing…

  • EvanTheGamer

    Yaaaaaaaaay!

  • yellowcanary73

    What 2 phones a week by end of year everyone will have it. The update is only 35 megs is it that hard to push it out.

  • Josh Carroll

    Showed up so I decided to check Droid-Life, Whadda ya know!

    • You just got it as well?

      • Josh Carroll

        Yeah I seriously thought that I was on the tail end of things.
        Edit: Update just finished. Landscape keyboard is nice now… no lag anymore. I haven’t really read much on the update so this is a nice thing for me haha
        Edit 2: I noticed the screen fades in now, it’s another nice little UI thing…

        • David Tourtillott

          Josh I’m a little surprised you haven’t ROM’d. Thought for sure you would have by now lol. Glad to hear some people I know are officially getting it.

          • Thank you for the passive-aggressive post. Custom ROMs aren’t everything to a lot of people.

          • Tim242

            They should be…

          • KleenDroid

            I’ve read this a lot and it’s amazing how every once and awhile one of those people do root and rom and all of a sudden they realize what they’ve been missing and wish they had done it sooner.

          • Jwhap

            I have not thrown a rom on my phone yet. I did run CM7 on my incredible, which I really enjoyed. When I got my gnex, I really bought in to the idea of not having to throw custom roms on my phone and having the latest from Google. I made it all the way to February before finally deciding to root so I could throw on the first leak and subsequently the May 1st leak. I still have not thrown a rom on my gnex…..but I will never again wait 2 months to root a phone!

          • realfoxm

            delete – duplicate post

          • realfoxm

            I’m in the same boat. Bought in December thinking that I would never need to root. It took me until middle of April (when we were SUPPOSED to receive the update). I wish I hadn’t waited so long. I should have rooted right out of the box.

          • David Tourtillott

            I know custom ROMs aren’t for everyone. I just know Josh and thought for sure he would have by now lol.
            I know there are a lot of people that prefer not to though

          • Josh Carroll

            I actually got everything setup and was about to flash AKOP but never got back to it a few months back… I still need to re-root after last night.

        • Stingray

          Is it better to do a wipe and then install the update? I have a ton of crap on my device….

          • 4n1m4L

            If its coming ota then there is no reason to wipe anything.

      • So is this exackly the same as the version that leaked earlier this month or so

      • Austin

        Im still waiting on mine
