With this update, can any 4.0.4 rom be flashed?

I wish I had an answer for you -- but your post was the clue I need to resolve my issue with the "status 7" error. The failed assert in my case pointed to boot.prop (as it sounds like yours did)... So I started to compare your posted boot.prop to the one on my device...and I found 3 extra lines at the bottom of mine -- one blank, and 2 installed by Volume+ : as I recall this is an experimental feature to increase the number of volume steps available to control in-call volume.

Anyway -- I mounted the system directories, edited the file and deleted the last 3 lines, saved, and tried the update again -- and this time it worked perfectly!!! Took a few minutes in CWM, returned to the menu that allowed me to reboot the phone, and then there was another step once I was back in Android (something like optimizing apps, repeated for all the installed apps -- I didn't pay very close attention). After that, it came back to the normal home screen, and checking "about" shows me on 4.0.4, build IMM76K. Sweet!

I'll try it out tomorrow to see how reception and battery life seem. Thanks to everyone here for info, support, tools, advice -- most truly appreciated!

BTW: Last thought -- you might try pulling build.prop out of the zip and comparing it to the one on your phone (put both on PC and use a compare utility, or print out and compare line by line). If there's a difference, you'll have a clue about what's causing the assert to fail and the status 7 error to occur, aborting the update.

AND: for anyone else getting a Status 7 with an assert error: assuming it shows you a file name, it appears to be stating the the named file on your device doesn't match the corresponding file in your update zip. (not the only reason for a Status 7, but it IS the reason for a Status 7 coming from an assert error). Look at the named file, compare to the one in the zip, and I'll bet you'll see a clue regarding what's wrong. Only thought though -- if the one on your device is different, it really may indicate something else on the device doesn't match the patch file -- don't just assume you can replace the file because it's different -- but if the reason is obvious (as mine turned out to be), you might be able to fix it this way as I did. Otherwise -- do as suggested earlier in the thread: reflash an official stock image (see URL early in the thread) that is intended to be the base to which your intended patch update applies.

Since I've seen this a couple of times while reading this thread I thought I'd mention that this is ICS' way of telling you it's rebuilding the Dalvik Cache. Same thing happened in Honeycomb, but there was no message, just a MUCH longer boot time while the rebuild took place.

And as long as I'm typing, I noticed a bunch of "what's changed between the leaked 4.0.4 from a couple of months ago and this one" questions. I haven't installed IMM76K yet, (wish I was home now; I won't update my GN while I'm working on the road), but I did read a message from someone that has updated to IMM76K saying that Google finally fixed the NFC formatting problem (yea!).

If she already has CMW recovery, then yes you can install this 4.0.4 update. Simply put the ZIP file onto the root of /sdcard , rename it to update.zip, then boot into CMW and apply the update.

Keep in mind though, there's talk of this update maybe not being the "OFFICIAL" update that gets pushed out to everyone. If it ends up not being the official update, then her phone will be stuck off the OTA upgrade path and won't receive or be able to flash any future updates. In which case, you would need to flash and wipe the phone back down to 4.0.2 in order to be put back on the OTA path.

After using my phone like I normally would for a day, I'm finding battery life to be slightly better than 4.0.2, but also slightly worse than the 4.0.4 build that was leaked earlier this year.

I have a Seidio 3800mAh extended battery w/ NFC and I'm finding that with the leaked 4.0.4 build that was leaked earlier this year, I was easily able to get from approx 7:20a to 7:00pm without the battery meter dipping into orange.

But with the 4.0.4 build that was released this week, I'm into the orange zone before 6:30pm.

I'm doing to perform the same test today to see if I get the same results, but I'm thinking there may be a reason why they halted the OTA on this one.

Nice update. I'm just curious if this will turn out to be "official" or if it will push me off the OTA upgrade path to which I'll need to flash stock to upgrade.

I'm willing to bet this will not be the official 4.0.4 OTA as the battery life isn't as good as prior leaks.
