Nexus S 4G Factory Image (4.0.4) Now Available Straight From Google, In Case You're Feeling ROM Remorse

Thanks again to the venerable JBQ of Google, the unmodified factory image of Android 4.0.4 for the Nexus S 4G (sojus, Android 4.0.4 IMM76D) is now available here. As JBQ states on Google+, this image is for those among you who have flashed to custom versions of AOSP and want to get back to factory state. No, by the way, there's still no word on an OTA update yet.

[Leak] Either Samsung Or AT&T Can't Keep A Secret: Ice Cream Sandwich For The Galaxy Note Leaks This Time

As the old saying goes, "When it rains, it leaks ICS builds for a whole lot of Samsung devices on AT&T's network in a short time frame." At least that's how I learned the saying as a boy. While it didn't make sense then, now that Android 4.0.3 has been leaked for the Galaxy Note, rounding out the Samsung/AT&T trifecta of flagship devices, it all makes sense.

As with the previous leaks, also courtesy of RootzWiki, this build flashed its build.prop badge at the door to let us know it's the real deal:

ro.build.fingerprint=samsung/SGH-I717/SGH-I717:4.0.3/IML74K/144:user/release-keys

Indeed, it looks like Note users can now join the Samsung family at the dessert table.

Adobe Flash 11.1 Hits The Android Market With Support For Android 4.0

Adobe promised that it would update Flash to support devices running Android 4.0 before the end of the year, and it has now made good on that promise - just in time for the U.S release of the Galaxy Nexus, no less.

Better grab it now, because this is likely to be the last major update that Flash for Android will ever see. Of course, Adobe will continue to push security updates to the app, but that will probably be the extent of it.

[Video] This Is What The Galaxy S II Ice Cream Sandwich Update (Android 4.0.1 KP1) With TouchWiz Will Look Like - Flash An Early Version Now If You Dare

An early version of the Ice Cream Sandwich ROM built by Samsung itself and complete with TouchWiz has been leaked today to the folks at SamMobile. They've quickly put together this video to demonstrate exactly what Samsung has been cooking up for the upcoming update - and that would be a whole lot of TouchWiz on top of the beautiful ICS UI we've been admiring so far:

Ever since I got the SGS II in the U.S., I don't mind TouchWiz as much (though those click sounds make me cringe every time), but it's kind of starting to look and feel old compared to Ice Cream Sandwich itself.
