Anyone??????? Just to recap, on my Nexus S when i turn the phone on i'm stuck on the "Downloading... Do not turn off target" screen (can't use volume up + power) always goes to download screen.. The phone shows up as "Unknown Device" in device manager.. Odin doesnt pick it up, adb devices shows no devices... Ive tried a few different drivers such as pdanet, samsung 1.4.8, with no success.... Please someone must know a solution?
this has the info on the driver bit see configuring usb access, the rest would just be getting adb and fastboot for linux
OK after a few hours of messing around I got Ubuntu up and running, installed JDK, SDK, and still no devices found when i bring up a terminal and type 'adb devices' while the Nexus S is on and in downloading do not turn off target!! mode.... Tried Unbrickable resurrector with no success saying it can't find device either... I know I have usb drivers and adb installed correctly because i can plug in my Gnex and get the adb device # no problem... This is super frustrating!!

Yeah, really. lol. I just don't understand why it's going into downloading mode.. i thought that would mean it's still alive.. I'm going to try opening it up again and making sure the Vol down button isnt somehow pushed in - maybe try n pull on it a little with tweezers see if it pops out any more
Edit: Checked and button still seems fine.... Guess it's off to the Riff Box man... grrr!
