If you're impatient, you can swap to Yakju following Efrant's link above, but that way, you'll lose all data, since I guess you haven't unlocked your bootloader yet.

Since he's running 4.0.2, he could always root, install Titanium Backup, and use that to backup all his apps and settings. Or he could use this.

I have the same build ICL53F.I9250XWKL2 and was surprised that there's no 4.0.4 OTA yet.
How can one check that such a build doesn't exist yet ? Not that I'm questioning your statement.. I'm just curious as where this information can be found.

My baseband version is I9250XXKK6

On android's developer website ( https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images ) I can download a 4.0.4 factory image for a GSM Nexus. Would flashing that brick my phone ? Does it install a different baseband ? Does that matter ?

I'm a bit confused at all this.. sorry for the n00bness

It won't brick your phone. Just make sure to follow the instructions. It will install a different baseband and it could matter. There appear to be some localized modifications by Samsung for non yakju builds. If anything, boot into CWM, do a nandroid, and copy it to your computer just so you can preserve the build that came on your phone.

cool man thanks! I already have a NAND backup of the stock phone... first thing I did Have it for some 3-4 days

I'm upgrading from a Nexus S... it might have suffered from the same issue however I don't really know now because at some point I flashed the full 4.0.4 build for the Nexus S and it works still so I guess there won't be a problem with the Galaxy Nexus. In any case as you said, the NAND backup should save me if anything goes wrong!

There is no way to check.

The only information we has is what is posted by users who receive the update. No one has reported receiving the update except users on yakju, takju, mysid, and yakjuzs.

As bfroehlich said, it won't brick your phone. It works perfectly fine... actually even better.

If you follow the instructions in my post, you will see the step where you can install a different radio. Do it, or don't. Your choice.

Some people have reported varying performance with different radios (see the stickied radio thread in the general section). I have not noticed any difference in the six or so radios that I've tried.

I tried method 3a and it didn't work. Any ideas where I went wrong? When I boot into recovery mode, it just has a little android with a red triangle with an exclamation point in it. Doesn't proceed anywhere from there.

That is the stock recovery screen. To get to the menu, push the power and volume buttons. You may have to do it repeatedly, as it is a little finicky.

Huh... holding the volume up and tapping power isn't really doing anything. Tried volume down as well. Tried tapping volume buttons. Tried holding down power with volume up held down, that just rebooted me.

I'm so close!!

Like I said, it is VERY finicky. Try pushing volume up and power repeatedly, without holding them down.

You might want to try removing the batter, holding the volume up and power when you slip it back in. That has worked for me in the past.

and this, and we have great success!

Thank you all so much. I was on a tester Verizon phone in January that had 4.0.4 and when I got my permanent one it was 4.0.2 and it was torture having to downgrade (my area has tons of 4g-3g hand offs making for bad battery on 4.0.2). Now that I'm at full strength again, I feel so much more powerful.
