Owners of the unlocked GSM Galaxy Nexus (yakju) are waking up to an OTA update notification this morning that is said to fix the signal loss issues which came along with build IMM76D. Since this new build (IMM76I) doesn't bump the Android version, kernel, or radios at all, however, we're not sure if the update makes any other changes (though it's unlikely).

Here's a bit of good news for all of you who have an unlocked (global) Samsung Galaxy S II here in the U.S.: Ice Cream Sandwich is being pushed to your device right now. This makes the global GSII the first of the GSII family to officially get Ice Cream Sandwich in the U.S., as none of the three American carriers that offer the phone have begun sending the update yet.

Looks like Big Red is on a roll with the OTA updates this week. First the RAZR/MAXX and Droid 4, then the LG Spectrum, and now the Casio G'zOne Commando. If you don't remember, the all but forgotten G'zOne is Casio's rugged offering to the Android world, packing lightweight specs in a heavyweight shell.

The OTA update, which is build number C771M110 for those who like to keep up with that sort of thing, brings a number of enhancements and fixes:

As always, we expect the update to begin rolling out at any time now, but you can check to see if the update is available on your device by going into Settings > About phone > System updates > Check New.

Big Red isn't skimping on the updates over the past couple of days (though none of them are ICS) - yesterday we saw changelogs for upcoming Droid RAZR/MAXX and Droid 4 OTAs, and today, details for an upcoming OTA to the LG Spectrum hit Verizon's site.

While this update appears to be nothing more than a incremental Gingerbread update (which brings the device up to Android version 2.3.6) it does bring quite a few fixes and enhancements to the device:

As always, there's no word as to when the update will start rolling out, but most OTAs start within a few days of the documents hitting Verizon's support site.

Looks like the RAZR Twins aren't the only ones set to get an OTA from Big Red - a changelog just hit the support docs page for the Droid 4 that outlines a small bug fix/enhancement update for the fourth-generation slider:

If you just can't wait to get some update action on your device, Droid-Life already has the 18MB update available for download. Since it's an official build, it will break root, but rumor has it that Voodoo Rootkeeper is letting users keep root access once the update is finished.

It's been a while since VZW showed any love to Thunderbolt owners, but that doesn't mean that it has forgotten about them completely. In fact, we just received a leak of a new build that brings some fixes and enhancements to Big Red's first LTE device.

While we already know that the Thunderbolt will be getting updated to Ice Cream Sandwich, this is just an incremental Gingerbread build.

If you happened to pick up Sprint's newest budget-priced (but not budget performing) tablet, the ZTE Optik, then you may have awoken to an OTA update this morning. The update doesn't bring anything major, but it does offer up a few fixes that are sure to be welcome by anyone who owns this tablet:

  • Google DRM solution
  • Google Music
  • Google+
  • Persistent notification after BT transfer
  • Software version corrected in x-wap profile
  • Sim City closes when attempting to purchase while connected to Wifi
  • Sim City download issue fixed
  • Response when connected to a computer via USB cable

The update should be rolling out now and finish up over the next several days.

Sony has done an excellent job at being transparent with its progress on the bringing Ice Cream Sandwich to a number of Xperia devices. It has kept users aware of what's going on throughout the process, as well as shared alpha and beta builds along the way. Now, though, it looks like the beta days are behind them and the build is ready for prime time for a certain Xperia devices.

Sprint just announced the OTA update that all Nexus S 4G owners have been waiting for: the update to Ice Cream Sandwich.

This OTA brings a whole slew of features, all of which come directly from ICS:

  • Customizable favorites tray visible on all 5 home screens just above the hard keys
  • Contacts application replaced with a People application that provides improved integration with Gmail, Email, Google+ and other apps
  • Multitasking allows users easy access to switch between recently used applications by tapping and holding the Home key
  • Create folders on the home screen by dragging and dropping one app onto another to create a folder
  • New lock screen actions allow users to jump into the camera or pull down  notifications to check messages, without unlocking the device
  • Swiping from left to right can dismiss individual notifications, close  apps from the recent apps list, and close browser tabs
  • Data usage provide controls for monitoring and managing network data usage
  • Camera enhancements include capturing panoramic photos, continuous focus, zero shutter lag exposure, stabilized image zoom and decreased shot-to-shot speed
  • Android Beam allows two NRC-enabled devices to exchange favorite apps, contacts, music, videos and more

It should be rolling out now and finish up within the coming days.

Last week, we got word from a Best Buy tipster that ICS updates would be rolling out to the Droid RAZR/MAXX on April 4th and the HTC Rezound on April 6th. If you've checked the calendar lately, then you're probably aware that today is April 5th - one day later than ICS was supposed to hit the RAZR Twins. Still, that OTA is nowhere in sight (soak test details for the RAZRs did surface yesterday, but it wasn't ICS).
