Try not to be so impatient. Lots of the people viewing your thread may not know and it has only been a few hours.

To answer your question though, no it will not.

4.0.4 is the real ICS. Someone was just tech savvy enough to be able to get it on there manually before the ota update for your region was released.

No, a factory reset will clear the phone settings and reset it back to factory defaults with the same version installed. It doesn't reset to previous versions, only the current version installed on the phone.

The official stock v4.0.4 is rolling out now in an over the air (OTA) firmware update. If the phone is rooted, running the update will remove root and return the phone to stock.
