We also just learned that this update is available for anyone who is willing to put forth a little effort as XDA member solarnz has the update all ready for you to download. There are a few things you must know first before trying to snag the update. You must be on a stock ROM (Android 4.0.3) and running the stock recovery. You will also need a USB stick and a microUSB adapter cable to transfer the data from your computer to your device. If you meet these few requirements and are ready to get to work, you can grab the download below. Next, throw it on to your USB drive, boot into recovery, then update with the .zip file that you just downloaded. Now simply reboot and enjoy a little 4.0.4 action! If you have any questions you can always reference the XDA thread through the source link below.

After realizing it was more like theirPhone, he decided he wanted the ability to customize, so Stacy moved to the OG Droid and has been a loyal Android fanatic ever since. Moving through all of the top tier Verizon phones, he recently retired his Droid Charge in favor of the Galaxy Nexus, only to wonder what great device Samsung will come out with next.
