Hi All

First of all, I would like to thank you for your time of reading my post. I know the Nexus S is a pretty old phone, but I have a lot in the phone and hence I would like to repair it, or at least wake it up and copy all my photos and others.

My phone could not be turned on yesterday, this is what I have done:
I switched off the Nexus S, took the battery out, change the SIM, inserted the battery, turn on the phone, and while the phone was turning on, I picked it up and was going to put the back cover on, and the battery dropped out at the time it was showing the Nexus Logo, and I couldn't never turn on my phone again.......

I have tried to use a phone charger to charge it, failed, external usb battery, failed, computer USB port, failed..... I have also tried to press not only the power button, but power + vol up, power + vol down, power + vol up and down, remove and reinsert the battery quickly while it is charging, all fail..... NOTHING shows up at all, no charging logo, no start up animation, no vibration..... but I can assure that for whatever method I charge the phone, the phone is heating up, so i guess it is really charging.

I had rooted my phone before, and running the latest official OTA jelly bean. I once had a problem with my power button, but magically it 'healed' itself a week after....

Hopefully I have provided enough to troubleshoot my problem, I am hoping it is just a software crash but not motherboard burnt something like this. Of course I am happy to provide more to help on this issue.

So can anyone please help me?

Many many thanks

Hi victor I am more than willing for you to meet up and try my jig if you wish? I only ever bought it as a backup device, it did help me revive my gs2 back in the day though.

I couldn't say for sure but it can't hurt to try a jig. I am free all day on Thursday this week though if that is any help to you? I no longer have a pc. if you send me a stamped adressed envelope I am more than happy to post the jig to you and I'll include an envelope to return back to me

Many thanks for your offer, I just checked on ebay and buying one may cost only 1.50, so I may just save the hassle of posting yours around.

I just hope that this JIG will work and bring my phone into download mode.

Yes, I think so, very similar, my battery dropped out while it was in the boot animation.

Hi All

I have ordered a JIG already, hoping that it will bring my phone into download mode, so if it does work, what is my next step please??? Just wanna prepare well.

I have done a search in the forum, do I run the nexus root toolkit? or the unbrickable resurrector? or download odin? where to get the odin by the way please?
