Something very strange just happened. I had read the news that Android 4.0.4 was coming to the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, so I was not surprised when I turned on my phone and got what looked like a screen that showed I was getting a system update.What’s strange is it had a big green arrow at the top, pointing to the start button on the right, that said “Start! —>” yet at the same time it said “Downloading” in the middle of the screen with a warning, “Do not turn off target!” So I figured I’d leave it alone. Then I thought I’d maybe tap the “Start!” arrow to see if anything happened. Thought I’d leave it alone again. Left it alone for 40 minutes. Then I thought it must have been long enough to download the update, plus there was that arrow pointing to the start button saying, “Start!” So I pressed the start button on my phone, and it started up as usual. I checked System Preferences > About phone, and saw that I still had 4.0.2. Do you think it would take longer than 40 minutes to download the update? What’s more, do you think whoever designed the update screen could write it so it doesn’t contradict itself? By the way, I did try System Preferences > About phone > System updates > Check now, and it told me my system was currently up to date. Very weird.
