Change to update.zip and flash through stock recovery or CWM *STOCK CDMA NEXUS ONLY*

*02/05 update*
For those having issues, try flashing it with CWM using the toolkit in the dev section.

Root not required but bootloader must be unlocked
1. Download the toolkit
2. Put your phone into fastboot mode
3. Open the toolkit
4. Choose the option to "Boot into Clockwork Mod without permanently flashing it"
5. Once in CWM, choose install from SD card
6. Choose install "update.zip" if you renamed it to that. Otherwise, choose the option to choose the file.
7. Viola!

Work In Progress. Will update as I discover more:

  • Noticeably Faster
  • Android OS bug fixed (in battery stats)
  • Long-pressing on a blank spot on the last page of app tray bug is gone
  • New Radios. 3G/4G switching MUCH better. Don't even notice it changing.
  • Improved signal strength
  • New Power Menu. New from 4.0.2, familiar to those who have used a stock 4.0.3 rom. Screenshot here
  • PRIMELA03 Bootloader
  • Faster boot up time
  • Auto-brightness Functionality changed. Smooth transition
  • Holding down camera button now refocuses again
  • Multitouch issue seems resolved. Screenshot here
  • Autorotate is faster
  • Browser performance noticeably improved
  • Recent apps list opens faster
  • Miscellaneous camera UI changes
  • Increased volume
  • Keyboard fixes
  • Updated News & Weather app UI
  • Improved quick controls in browser. New when coming from 4.0.2. Present in 4.0.3. Screenshot here (Update: 02/05)

    I'm about to make a lot of people very, very happy. I've been playing with contact pictures for hours now, and I'm incredibly happy to report that setting a contact picture directly from the phone and letting contacts sync with Gmail no longer results in pixelated, low quality contact pics!!!

    It's been hours now since I've changed over a dozen contact pics and have synced well over half a dozen times and not one contact pic has been downsized and blown up after syncing.

    Try it out yourself. Download a few HQ pics for your contacts from anywhere and put them on your phone; edit contact and change pic, choose select from gallery and find the HQ pic, choose the crop size that best suits your tastes and hit crop then done. Now go ahead and sync and go back to contacts app. You'll notice those pics are still the same exact quality that you left them as before syncing!

    Enjoy!

    Hit thanks if you liked this. ;-)

    I have searched through the thread trying to find an answer for this, if I have missed it or If it should be common knowledge I apologize. I'm not sure why it wasn't the first question asked so I must be missing something. Will this break root!? How to keep root? Thanks for an answer.:)

    I'm sure there's a million methods to do this, but what I did is, before flashing anything, I installed Voodoo OTA Root Keeper from the market (It's free) and made the SU backup from within the app. (You'll know when you're all set when all 5 checkboxes are checked.) Then after you flash 4.0.4, which in clockwork recovery seems to flash the bootloader, radios, and the OS patch itself (everything you need), you will have to restore the backup from the OTA Root Keeper app in order to get root back. It does initially flash without root, but that simple button press fixed it all up for me.
