Here it is the link from good to the Jelly Bean for the Nexus S 4G.  Read on for the link and instructions. I will have it mirrored later and have some more details and screens coming soon.

I was on the stock ROM not rooted but did use CWM with an unlocked bootloader to do this.  Ever since ICS the updates go in /cache/ and will not run from the root of the device (you can only get a file there on a rooted phone).

Copy the file to the root of your device.
If you do not have CWM installed or your bootloader unlocked please follow the directions I have in other posts. ( Iwill add the links tomorrow when I have some free time)
Use whichever flavor of CWM (I use touch) choose to install zip from SDCard.  Select the file and viola you are now running Jelly Bean.

    Tried…failed. I’m rooted, unlocked and used CWM, am I’m missing anything? BTW…thanks for posting, sucks it didn’t work.

      It could be the root that is causing it do you have any other extras installed? The problem most of the time since this is a patcher is that they are checking a lot of files to make sure they are identical to what they expect on a non rooted device. What error does it give? Generally the process will tell you why it failed. You said you are rooted but are you running the Factory Image or some other ROM?

        When the hoorah of the update 1st came out about a month ago I tried it on my phone but it had all those bugs on it so i decided to go back to ICS stock. I found the stock rom and installed it. The only thing which confused me was which stock to install…deodexed or odexed, wasn’t sure of the difference. If you have the actual stock ICS I can install and then try this after the install. Thanks again

        I don’t use the stock ROMS because of having these exact issues. The only way I can guarantee this will work is to use the factory images available here as a starting point. You will have to use fastboot to flash that which will wipe your system. There is probably a nandroid backup someone used of a clean wipe with no user information but I have never gone that route and cannot comment on if it will work. Once you flash the factory image you may want to let it boot all the way up sign in and wait a little bit, you might be on the push list. It sounds like it is ramping up this morning.
