Nexus S owners may notice that the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update, which began rolling out on Friday, isn’t properly installing after the download finishes. As it turns out, Google has “paused” the update in some areas while it monitors feedback from the initial population of Nexus S ICS users, which has thus far suggested there are bugs Google needs to address before it begins the mass rollout again. As such, many Nexus S owners could experience installation failures. Google’s Paul Wilcox explained the situation recently in Google’s support forums:

If you received an update notification a little while ago but the update isn’t currently available for your phone, this is likely the result of Google pausing the update in your area while we monitor feedback. The Android 4.0 update is continuing to roll out around the world so your phone will receive another update notification when it’s available again in your region.

Google typically moves relatively quickly to get its Nexus devices running the latest Android operating system, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the update begins to roll out again in the near future.
