After initially informing you about the continued delays regarding new software updates for the LTE Galaxy Nexus on Verizon, it appears that Big Red may have been watching. Some users are now reporting that an official update to Android 4.0.4 has now appeared on their device, but from what we gather it isn’t available for everyone yet.
It was only days ago when we were telling you that Verizon may be to blame for the Android 4.0.4 update rollout delay, with the LTE version of the device seemingly last in line after the GSM and Nexus S handsets are already enjoying the latest version.
However, it’s now become apparent that Verizon are pushing out the Android 4.0.4, identified as build number IMM76K. It is a 39.8MB download and evidence of the update can be seen in the image below as seen over at Engadget. If you do a search over on Twitter for Android 4.0.4, you’ll see that a lot of people are seeing the same notifications message. However, just like most other software updates – not everyone is seeing the new version yet.
There’s talk that Verizon are only pushing this out to corporate users, but we’re guessing that the update will still reach everyone by the end of this week. However, we’ve spotted an excellent guide over at Android Forums which shows you how to update to Android 4.0.4 manually if you just can’t wait. There’s detailed update information for those who are rooted, unrooted and unlocked, although there’s help for those with a stock device who are looking to unlock their device as well.
We’re glad to see some good news for Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners at last – it’s been a long time coming hasn’t it? If you are in possession of an LTE Galaxy Nexus, let us know if you received the notification to update to Android 4.0.4 or not. Please state your area if you leave a comment.
