4.0.4 still won't install on my GNex.

The 4.0.4 update has (obviously) been out for a while now, but it still won't apply to my phone.


  • About phone displays 4.0.2.
  • When I check the About phone/System updates screen, it usually tells me "Your system is currently up to date".  When I do the trick to clear the flag cache, I can get it to tell me there's a system update available, but then we go through the sequence below.

Sometimes (once every couple of days), I'll get the update dialog: "There is a system update available."  I tap the button to "Apply now."  The installer warns me about the reboot, and then I let it reboot.  The phone goes through the usual reboot sequence, then it goes to the standard UI.  No updating occurs, and I'm still at 4.0.2.  The System updates screen tells me I'm up to date.  Except for not having received the update, the phone continues to function as normal

My phone is completely stock, and has never been rooted.  As best I can tell, besides the update issue it's functioning normally.

Please help!  I'm happy to provide whatever additional information is required.
