So it will also get me back to stock device + ill get the warranty back? and they will never know about the device that it was ever rooted?..

Actually im new to android and im loving it, im a little confused about Radio thing.. like i currenty have XXKB3 and the firmware that is listed above ^ is having XXKF1, will this create any conflict? i mean if i have waited for OTA update from google, so i would have got the same update 2.3.6 with XXKF1 Radio? and it would also have the same build number GRK39F instead of GRI54?

Thanks

To be clear, you are not getting the warranty "back". You are tricking customer support into thinking you never voided your warranty by flashing a custom ROM. I hope you understand the difference.

Anyways, flashing any of the files in this thread will bring you back to stock. That means stock radio, bootloader and build. However, it will be still necessary to lock the bootloader (fastboot oem lock), otherwise it's pretty easy to see that you've tinkered with the device.

As for your second question, the builds above are the official builds from Google. If you have the i9023 (easily recognizable by the SLCD screen) these are the builds that you would get with OTA. Don't look at all the build/radio/bootloader names, they usually change with each new version.

I think I understand you are asking if you will still receive OTA updates after flashing any of the above files. If so, the answer is yes.
You will loose root by flashing any of the above, though.

Ok, 1 question. What if i flash 4.0.3, can i flash back to 2.3.6? Because i read somewhere that this could be tricky to do, you can mess up your phone. Is that true?

Yes you can flash back. You would have to unlock your bootloader (which will wipe all your data), and then install ClockworkMod recovery.

Go into CWM recovery, wipe data, cache (you MUST wipe data and cache if you're downgrading), wipe Dalvik, system and boot as well. Once you've done that, you can flash the full 2.3.6 ROM package from the original post.

original GRI54 ROM
First of all, thanks for this useful thread!

I'd also like to know how to grab the original stock ROM from my Nexus S (I9023, Android 2.3.3, GRI54) just in case I wanted to revert my phone back to its original state. I know 2.3.6 is better than 2.3.3 but maybe I will need it for any reason in the future. My problem is, that if I unlock the bootloader (in order to install Clockwork recovery), I will loose my current configuration (apps, settings, etc.) since the /data partition will be wiped. And the original stock recovery will also be gone once I install Clockwork.

So my question is: can I boot into Clockwork recovery without flashing it to the recovery partition in order to access its backup feature, so that I can make a full backup of my original (current) system? Of course, the bootloader is still locked, so the real question is whether I can use a command like this with a locked bootloader:

fastboot boot recovery.img

I think it should work because this won't modify the system since I only boot the custom recovery.

Thanks in advance.
