Generally, use of the UnBrickable Resurrector requires a hardware modification. Open the phone, remove the xOM5 resistor and make the xOM5 value high instead of low. I'd like a chance to document the modification on the Nexus S. If you'd like to send it to me I can resurrect it for the price of shipping. Send me a PM.

So this makes me -and all the others who could resurrect their phone- even MORE lucky, doesn't it...

I had that problem yesterday. After you run program, plug phone into usb cable, hold button combo as you normally would to get into the bootloader, when bootloader comes up you can use fastboot from linux or boot into windows to use fastboot to repair your boot.img and bootloader.img. Do not unplug phone if you are going to reboot into windows.

Hi Adam,

thank you... you saved my phone and all my data stored in!

I'm a Windows user so I installed Ubuntu "inside" Windows, I follow all the steps pressing the two volume buttons during resurrection (in order to activate the download mode), then I reboot in Windows where Odin did the rest.

Merry Christmas!

I'm not with my phone in hands now, but I'll check this solution when i get home. Just bricked my phone yesterday due to an update from gingerbread to ics. I can't see anything on my screen, even the keys are not working. I hope your solution does the trick. Thanks in advance.
