Help Nexus s 4g 4.0.4 ics update ota force


I have found a way to force the ota (over the air) update onto your nexus s 4g
first you want to make sure your phone has enough battery (60% should be enough), next you want to go into manage apps>all, and scroll down to "google services framework" click it and then click "clear data", quickly remove the battery and let your device sit without the battery for ten minute, next put in your battery and when your device powers up go into the dialer and type in this code *#*#2432546#*#* after you see the notification "checkin suceeded" go to about phone and system update and 4.0.4 should be downloading, if not retry

Or you can head over to the blog in my sig and download the file from the official Google site and rename it and install it and not have to wait for any OTA.


I'm on a Nexus S (9020A) running 4.0.4 (still!) trying to the the update to 4.1.1 or 4.1.2 .. and this procedure isn't working. Tried multiple times (definition of insanity?) .. Is there something obvious that I might be missing?
