Google halts Nexus S ICS update in certain regions - read the full textThe Android 4.0.3 update for the GSM/UMTS version of the Nexus S began a few days ago and by now several of them are running the latest version of Android.

Manually updated to 4.0.3 and all fairly good so far. Been running with wifi, 3g, auto sync and push mail on for over 55 hours so far with moderate usage. Benchmarks are a bit lower than if running gingerbread but that is the only issue so far.

In some regions, 4.0.3 causes WiFi to stop working once you insert sim card!

I did a manual update and noticed the battery life is a little poorer, but not as bad as many are saying. Wifi has improved massively, connecting straight away (used to wait for about 30-60 seconds) seems much more stable. Seems to leave apps running in the background more which causes the battery to drain, but using taskiller does the trick, and i'm still getting a day or so out of it.

I did a manual upgrade or update on my Nexus S to the ICS; but since I got it done I am not able to connect to any wireless network. Everything else seems to be working fantastic and it shows I got the ICS update but no wireless connecting. Any idea why this might be happening and how to correct it.

Manually upgraded my Australian SLCD Nexus S with the zip file on ZDNET and have no issues at all, everything works and seems better including battery life. I performed a factory reset prior to running the isntall so not sure if this contributed to having no problems at all.
