Galaxy Nexus: Have you received Android 4.0.2 (ICL52FA) OTA update?

By Alan Ng - Dec 16, 2011

We have some important news for those of you that have just picked up a new 4G LTE Galaxy Nexus from Verizon or plan to do so this weekend, as it has been confirmed that a software update will be available at launch, bringing the device to the latest version of Ice Cream Sandwich – Android 4.0.2.

We previously gave you rumors that the Galaxy Nexus would be updated to Android 4.0.2 before launch after this version was shown in a few leaked screenshots. However, we have now learned that new Galaxy Nexus owners will receive the update after two hours from when activation is first made.

An official update document has been obtained by Droid-Life, and it lists the changes that have been made from Android 4.0.1, with the most significant feature perhaps being improved 3G, 4G data support and also enhancements to WiFi connectivity as well. The update size will come in at 10.7MB and will also bring your handset to a new build identified as ICL53F.

Other changes in the update include improved audio volume in Google navigation, visual improvements to the lock-screen, WiFi automatically reconnecting to a known access point, improvements to email attachments so they open correctly and more. You can see the document in full with the list of changes here.

We mentioned above that this update will appear two hours after activation, but we’re hearing that some of you may get it sooner than that – even within 30 minutes of activation in some instances, which is great. If you recently activated your Galaxy Nexus on Verizon and received the 4.0.2 update, let us know how long you had to wait.

For those that do have a handset already – was the long wait worth it? Is the Galaxy Nexus the best Android handset hands-down in your opinion, or are disappointed by certain aspects?

    So far this has been an AWESOME PHONE. All my over 100 apps transfer over and everything is perfect.

  • I currently have a $300 paperweight for a phone because I cannot obtain a signal on the Galaxy Nexus I purchased today. Other Verizon users at my house including one with a DROIDX and an iPhone 4S both have 3 bars minimum signal where I live. The Galaxy Nexus has 0 bars or a very very weak signal. I can’t hear callers, but the phone will dial out. I have no Internet browsing capabilities. (keeps saying no connection) and can’t even access Android Market. I connected to WiFi and downloaded a speedtest. I have 225kB down, 63kB Up and -120dBm 99 asu. I called Customer Service and after an hour of troubleshooting, they told me that their main tech support won’t even be able to give me an answer as to why I have a $300 paperweight until tomorrow.. I don’t know what the problem is. It may be that I got a bad unit, or it may be that this phone simply doesn’t have a good antenna. Perhaps it has some other software issue. I’m not sure, but if it isn’t fixed by tomorrow, I will forced to return the phone I have waited 3 months to buy..
