Official Android 4.0 for Nexus S tested on I9023


I own a GT-I9023 Nexus S phone. Google officially released 4.0 for Nexus s, so I immediately started to install it manually.
I downloaded the update from Google and installed it following this steps:

  • Copy update.zip to the root of your internal storage
  • Switch off your Nexus S
  • Hold Volume Up and Power to reboot into the bootloader

  • Select “Apply update from /sdcard”
