Nexus S 4G

Google began pushing Android 4.0.4 updates to the Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus and XOOM Wi-Fi a few days ago, but unfortunately for the CDMA crowd, Sprint's Nexus S 4G and Verizon's Galaxy Nexus were left out of the fun. The good news is that owners of the former of those two devices no longer need to feel left out, as BriefMobile has posted a new leaked Android 4.0.4 update for the Nexus S 4G (the NS4G's second ICS leak) that features the build number IMM76D. The site claims that this the official update that's bound for the Nexus S 4G, and some folks that've already taken the plunge say that it brings with it much better WiMAX reception.

As far as an official rollout its concerned, we've yet to hear much of anything from Google or Sprint on the matter, though Google did say when it announced the recent 4.0.4 push that it would be releasing the new software to "more devices" in the coming weeks. If you just can't wait any longer, though, all the necessary download links and instructions can be found at the BriefMobile link below. Just remember that we're not responsible if you decide to pull the trigger and your phone ends up getting borked somehow. Rather wait for the official push from Google and Sprint? It's reportedly coming "very soon," but so far the exact start date is still a mystery. If you're feeling brave and do decide to install this leaked update, be sure to drop by the comments section below and let us know how it's working for you, you adventurous phone owner, you.
