I have a i9020A of Canada Fido and I got the 4.0.4 OTA just now! From my 2.3.6 all stock, no root no unlock nexus s.

the package is 128.6M and I am still downloading it. Here is the method to help you to get it NOW!

Manage APPs -> ALL->Google services Framwork: clear data ->dial *#*#2432546#*#* (*#*#checkin#*#*)->GOT IT!



PS: It has been one day and many people posted that they received the OTA. It's NOT a April joke.... However, I know many people's nexus s don't work. As the OTA file is availiable already, you can easily manual flash it using stock recovery. I did the method above for half a day and finally got it (The method was originally from a Chinese forum http://bbs.gfan.com/viewthread.php?tid=3941961&extra=page%3D1%26amp%3B%20sortid%3D and http://bbs.gfan.com/android-3941883-1-1.html They got the OTA at 12:05pm, 31/3, Canada Eastern Time )

maybe but that jives with a few other reports from yesterday, which would be a bit early for that. Now if one of the i9020A users from the great white north can capture the URL, the AT&T crowd can get there factory update on. :)

Can someone explain where someone got the idea that clearing the frameworks would trigger an update?!
I don't know either. I learnt it from another website
bbs.gfan.com/viewthread.php?tid=3941961&extra=page%3D1%26amp%3Bsortid%3D

in fact, the clear data step may not be necessary, but I do think the checkin step matters.
