Yes here it is the nexus s official android 4.0.4 from google
this needs to be flashed over the stock 4.0.3 official rom from google it's a 17.8 mb update not a full rom so you can only flash it over stock 4.0.3 i repeat only over stock or else it will fail.
i managed to get the download link from google servers here it is http://android.clients.google.com/pa...o/hR7QFEtn.zip as you can see an official google link.
so far i noticed that the recovery is fixed (no longer disappear on i9023 devices)
and battery problems solved too.

ONLY FLASHABLE VIA CWM
the reason is here:http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=24198556

Is it worth going back to stock 4.0.3 and update to 4.0.4?

I am rooted running Codename Android 1.5.5 and Air Kernel 3.7. Pretty happy with that set up. Very smooth and stable and decent battery life (20+ hrs).

I love the tweaks and mods included in CNA. Is it worth it not having them?

Hmm of course it does not have the tweak of custom roms,but if you want a stock experience this is way better than 4.0.3 lots of issue fixed,it's smoother now and battery issues all gone plus the recovery now works again on i9023 devices.

is your bootloader unlocked ?
if it's unlocked use fastboot to boot clockworkmod recovery and flash from there.

you must be completely stock,no stock kernel or modified system apps or files,you can try flashing the 4.0.3 rom,even if you are unrooted with a modified stock system it will not work.

Much better if you all wait for the devs to handle this.
