Default ICS for i9020a Finally Here!!

Came across this last night on the xda developers forum... everyone thought it was an April fool's joke, but it isn't. I tried on my stock 2.3.6 i9020a Nexus S and now I have Android 4.0.4!!

Sorry, I can't post links because this is my first post, but if you google:

i9020a ics finally here xda

It will be the first result, then go to Page 2 of the thread and you'll find the link. I've also PMd the admin to update the stickied thread.

Enjoy!!

Seems that I can't access voicemail, everything else works fine. I found a thread that suggests flashing a new radio file UCKE1, trouble is, I'm stock and I have no idea how...anyways, just a warning for those wanting to upgrade.

Flashing a radio is only possible by rooting and using a custom recovery image.

For those looking for the link, here it is:

I9020A 2.3.6 to 4.0.4 Official Update: http://android.clients.google.com/packages/ota/google_crespoa/IEzMw3FU.zip

There is also more information in the Official ICS Discussion thread.

I was reading about this update via XDA on google when my phone let me know that an OTA update was available - v4.0.4 was here. I just ran the update and the update process was awesome. The OS itself is even awesomer!

Very nice improvement in performance and visuals, almost like a new phone. I'm a happy camper.

Default Roger users rejoice ...

Just to confirm, I snagged the link above.
Rename downloaded file to update.zip.
Copy the update.zip file to the phone’s internal storage.
Turn the phone off, press and hold Volume Up and Power to boot into the bootloader.
Using Volume Up/Down select “recovery” and press Power button.
After the exclamation point in a triangle appears, hold the Power button and press Volume Up.
Using Volume Up/Down select “apply update from /sdcard” and choose the update.zip.
After the update process is finished, select “reboot system now” and press Power.

I am now running 4.0.4 - I also tried unsuccessfully the *#*#2432546#*#* several times (each time clearing data from the Google Service Framework) to get it to download automatically first.

Thanks for posting!
