    ICS 4.0.4 - overseas

      Google has just released 4.0.4 but there is no manual "official" update, OTA only. My Nexus S is registered to T-Mobile (US), but I am using it on Vodafone (NZ). How can I get the upgrade?

          Hi leppo2,

           

          OTA update is actually depends on the network and the phone model.

            Actually, I called Vodafone and asked about that. They said it is unlikely that I will be included in their push because my phone is not registered with them. Since I bought my Nexus S (unlocked) from Best Buy it cannot be registered here in New Zealand. I guess it was originally registered to T-mobile because all the paperwork in the box said T-mobile and it even came with a T-mobile sim (which I obviously never used as I was leaving the country). I tried to do the manual thing with the file from the Google server, but I got the ubiquitous "Status 7" error.

              You should try to check some helpful videos in youtube on how to manually update your phone or ask a question in XDA Developers for the update.

                #jdiaz97...actually, I tried the manual update (several times) and always got the Status 7 error. But low and behold, I got the OTA yesterday. Vodafone NZ came through...my battery charge instantly went from less than 50% to 87% and I don't think it dropped much below that for the rest of the day. Also, I think the WiFi reception increased. Whereas I could not receive the signal in certina parts of my house, I get it everywhere now. This was definately a worthwhile update.
