Hello,

I am new to the Galaxy Nexus and 4.0. I traded for a Nexus and it appears to be a unlocked engineering model currently running 4.0.1

I flashed the newest version of clockwork recovery on and see that the new 4.0.4 for GSM was released today. I am reading a lot of back and forth regarding the compatibility of the release so I figured I would check here before I dig in.

Am I able to simply put the 4.0.4 GSM release on my SD and wipe/flash using Clockwork install from zip? or is there something I am missing.

I don't care about losing all my data. I would appreciate any help guys!

the 4.0.4 OTA is a upgrade from 4.0.2. you need 4.0.2 as a prequisite and its for "yakju" devices, verify if your device is 'yakju' it says Galaxy Nexus but 'yakjuxw' has Galaxy Nexus.

Looks like I am on yakjuux. Am I able to move to jakju 4.0.2 and then update to 4.0.4?

Sorry for the back and forth I just need to get the various version straight before I start going crazy flashing

Would you mind doing a couple of things before you flash anything please?

1) Could you check the version of your bootloader? Reboot into the bootloader and read it from there. If you have an engineering version, I'd REALLY appreciate a dump before you flash anything over it.
2) Could you dump your radio? If you don't know how to do it, I can guide you through it. You need root.

We haven't been able to get ahold of any engineering bootloaders/radios yet, and it seems you lucked out.

It would be very much appreciated!!! Thanks.
