Nexus S 4G on Sprint Gets the Leaked Android 4.0.4 ROM

April 2, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Rumors have been aplenty about the day when Android 4.0 update will hit the Nexus S 4G on Sprint. However, much before an official announcement from Google, the Android 4.0.4 update for the Sprint Nexus S 4G has surfaced online in an exciting leak.

Though it is not for the first time that Ice Cream Sandwich ROM is getting leaked for Nexus S 4G, the new leak seems to bring out the real version which Google officially signed off.

Now those expert rooters can start flashing it with Odin to make their Nexus 4G a more rocking device. With this, your device will get the systems bumped up to IMM76D, making it similar to any other device on the official ICS platform.

The new leak also has the official Google insignia with the release keys, and what makes it different from the earlier leak is the Sprint specific network code embedded in the ROM.

Many have already flashed their device with the leaked ROM and initial responses show that the results are positive. However, we suggest extreme caution before flashing the leaked ROM, if you are not that geeky in rooting.

However, leak sources confirm that the ROM, though not an official release, will fetch you all official, Over The Air updates in the future.

However, if you are not very confident about giving this ROM a try, the wait may not be too much longer for an official update. The Sprint Nexus S 4G is the only Nexus device which is still officially supported, but has yet to receive the ICS update 

The GSM variant of Nexus S was blessed with an ICS update just two days ago, and the official update for the Sprint variant will be hitting you soon.
