FULL WIPE!!!! (data, cache, system, boot and dalvik cache!! this MUST all be done or you WILL have problems. 100% guaranteed!! b2g isn't compatible with android)
flash the zip
reboot
enjoy!

so....without further ado, I present you guys with boot2gecko for Nexus S 4g

I'm still trying to figure that out, but from what I can tell so far, everything should work. I had to run out to do some errands after flashing it myself so I haven't had very much time to play around yet.

So I've never messed around with fastboot before, I'm looking up tutorials now. Will this wipe my sd card too or just the phone storage? And will this mean I would have to reroot if I wanted back on android? Thanks for all of your help man.

no, it won't wipe your SD card. You will have the exact same effect you would if you flashed a rom in recovery. This will replace android on your system, so if you want to go back to android you will have to reflash your rom. When you flash these img files you will lose all your device data (again....not the sd card data) just as if you've installed an android rom in recovery after a full wipe.

If you have the correct APN info to enter, it will. I'm currently in the process of trying to find that info.

a thread for what? boot2gecko? This is a development thread. If you have some help to offer, please offer away!

I've been having a lot of trouble getting wireless data running. It appears that all anyone should need is the proper apn settings to input for it to activate....but I haven't had any luck finding a good deal of the necessary info I need. I even went as far as to contact tier 2 tech support at sprint, and they couldn't help me either.

after about a week of searching, calling, emailing, chatting, etc. I threw the project to the side burner for the time being. I decided to spend some time learing about compiling aosp, cm, etc...maybe the issue is in there somewhere. Since I'm a linux n00b I did a good amount of messing my system up several times...but I finally got it right. I formatted the whole hard drive, installed ubuntu, set up the boot2gecko environment immediately after installing, and only the b2g environment. I flashed a factory image to my phone for the proprietary blobs, just in case that was the problem, then I re-synced the repo and built b2g from source again. I sill have the exact same problem I did with the first build. Wireless voice works, wifi works....wireless data does not.

If you can help any, I would really appreciate it. I know ns4g has to be fully supported since it's in the list both on mozilla's site and in the ./config.sh list of devices.
