Android 4.0.3 is out for almost a month but some carriers and manufacturers still do not push the new update even that it is officially fully ready for some devices (Galaxy Nexus(mysid and yakju builds), Motorola Xoom(US variants) and Nexus S). So for those you you who do not like waiting here is a solution to update android 4.0.3 ICS on Nexus S manually.

First of course you need to make sure that:

1) Phone is charged above 50% (you don’t want your battery to finish while trying to update)

2) Take backup of all your data, apps and contacts

Note: you should have usb debugging enabled of course.

Then of course you need to download the image we are going to install:

For users with android 2.3.6 and later you can get:

For the other users and the ones with modded roms you need the full zip:
(Official, signed, can flash with ClockworkMod or stock recovery. Contains recovery, radio and bootloader.)

Basically if not sure use the second one  if you get an error message with the first one like:

“assert failed: file_getprop …
(status 7)
Installation aborted”

After you got this file perform the following steps:

1 ) Rename the file to (optional,  some recovery images give you the option to select ‘install’)

2 ) Put it to your sd card

3 ) Turn off your device

4 ) go to Bootloader (press&hold volume up button then press&hold power button)

5 ) when in Fastboot mode navigate to [Recovery] using volume up/down buttons

6 ) Press the power key to select [Recovery]

7 ) If you see a warning logo, press the power button and then press volume up button then release both to go to the Main Recovery menu (this step is needed mostly for the stock recovery images)

8 ) From the menu, select [Apply update from /sdcard], and choose from the list.

9 ) When update is finished go back and select [reboot system now]

10 ) Enjoy you new Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 8)
