    Hi - I've been having trouble with the OTA 4.0.4 update i keep receiving - after googling for days and not finding a working solution i thought i'd ask here..

    Model: Nexus S
    Android version: 2.3.1
    Baseband version: I9020XXJK8
    Kernel version: 2.6.35.7-g7f1638a, android-build@apa28 #1
    Build number: GRH78

    Country: UK
    Carrier: 3

    Rooted: Yes

    I keep getting an OTA 4.0.4 update notification that fails each time i try to install. What should i do?! Do i need to update manually to something else first... do i need to unroot the phone first? can i download the full image from somewhere and update from SD card?
    Any advice gratefully received, Thanks in advance :thinking::mad:

    I'm not an expert on this stuff, but I'm quite sure I read somewhere on these forums that if you rooted your phone you can not install the ICS update normally. You need to un-root or manually install it.

    Mine was rooted, but never unlocked the bootloader or changed the ROM. So I got the update. The update to 4.04 kept failing - someone here said to manually update to 4.03 which I did, then 4.04 updated by itself. Now working.

    hmm, thanks for replies - I've tried manually updating directly to 4.0.3 and also tried updating to 2.3.2 - to then keep updating incrementally until i hit ICS - everything fails with a status 7 error message

    full message:

    Installing update
    assert failed: getprop("ro.product.device") == "crespo" || getprop("ro.build.product") == "crespo"
    E:Error in /android/update.zip
    (Status 7)
    Installation aborted.

    Any ideas?

    You REALLY need to mention things like rooting and running modified recovery modes. Without that info, we presume you're running completely stock.
