Sprint Nexus S 4G Ice Cream Sandwich build leaked, then removed

Good news for all the Sprint Nexus S users: an internal Ice Cream Sandwich ROM has been leaked for the NS4G, and word on the street is that it’s the final version, and sooner or later, Sprint will officially launch the update via an OTA for the Nexus S 4G. So far, the ROM is running perfectly and there is no problem at all, according to testers.

Of course, if you don’t like rooting or hacking, then it seems you’ll have to wait for awhile. The update will bring Google Voice Integration and Google Wallet to the device, so it may take time for Sprint to work all the bugs out. Unfortunately, the thread on XDA was locked, and the content was removed at the request of mrxkills, who originally posted the leaked build. This does prove that Sprint has an ICS build in the works, and it’s only a matter of time before it’s officially released.

So did anyone get a chance to download the ROM before it was taken down? Any Nexus S 4G users out there that have been waiting for ICS since its GSM cousin got the update? Drop a comment below!

Back in 2011, Asad started as an intern at AndroidGuys, and today he is one of the youngest and active members of the team. He's writing about Android from almost 4 years, and when he is not doing that, he is either watching Suits, Breaking Bad, watching a Manchester United game, or just studying..


  1. If I install this leaked build on my Nexus S 4G, can I later uninstall it when the official OTA update is released by Sprint? If so, how exactly do I uninstall it?

  2. Question.  The article said that Sprint is putting out the update.  I thought that the Nexus S 4G was purely a Google product?  I have Wallet already on my Nexus S and Google Voice so I don’t understand what the article is talking about.  

  3. I have it installed and running butter smooth. Somewrinkles need ironing but all phones running android always do. Either way there’s an ics rom of the leaked ota in xda that is the same thing just a few minor tweaks.

  4. I have installed this along with the companion radio update. running now for over 24 hours and rock solid. Great battery life too!

  5. I love it! I’ve had a few problems with it but nothing major. I’ve had it installed for about 3 weeks now and can honestly say that I’m very impressed.

    • Yeah. Sucks, but flagship device or not, it’s not a “pure” Google phone therefore it’s not a priority. I’m using an EVO 3D but I got a Ñexus S 4G just because it would get ICS first.

  6. can someone send me the download link email [email protected]:disqus .com
