For security and warranty-related reasons, much? Or to prevent people to randomly flash stuff they found on forums? I don't want to sound too aggressive but please try to consider the manufacturer's POW before bashing.

Anyhoo, I suggest you do a bit of research on "fastboot" and "adb", then when you think you have a basic grasp of the whole thing flash the update/radio etc.

Otherwise, you can search Google for "root Nexus S" and you'll find plenty of step-by step guides to unlock the bootloader..

Default Will this ICS Update work on I9023 Indian Model?

Hi Friends,

I am from India. I want to update my current Android 2.3.3 version
Baseband version i9023XXXkb3 build no. GRI54. This is a SIM FREE Phone

Both verizon and indian mobile supports same kind of mobile i guess if you compare on GSMARENA

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW
Will Verizon version work for Indian Nexus S?
I am really afraid that it may cause a network lock and hence will only support verizon

Can someone please throw some light on it

Thanks,
Arpit

In portugal, the nexus s is sold without a network lock, actually i don't think any networks are selling this phone, its only being sold by "neutral" retailers (with no network card inside them)

Hi Arpit,

Why are you concerned with this Verizon thing anyways? You didn't buy your phone from Verizon..did you? Because, if you did not and bought your phone in India, then you can relax, because nothing here can get you 'network-locked'.
