How do I Unbrick? Small twist
Ok so here is the issue. My Nexus S i9020a has a power button that is no longer working. Whenever I put the battery in, it automatically boots up, to reboot I take the battery out and slide back in. I want to bring it back for warranty since my bro got the warranty until 2014 or so. I had previously had a couple of custom ROMs on it. I wanted to flash stock ROM and lock the bootloader.
When I boot into recovery (hold up while I put the battery in), I can't do anything. Even the volume up/down doesn't do anything, and of course pressing the power button doesn't select anything. So I got ROM Manager and found a copy of the stock rom. ROM Manager was supposed to install the rom from the .zip file, which it sort of did. It wiped everything and installed. I left it on while I went to do something. When I came back, the phone is stuck in the bootup animation.
If I was able to do anything in recovery I would just reflash a different ROM and go again.
I have watched some videos, and tried the Oneclick Unbrick, but doesn't work. I've read some other threads here that talked about getting Linux on a USB, or other mod. But I am trying not to go that route, as it seems pretty complicated.
When the phone is in the bootup animation and I connect it to the computer, I hear the sound that Win7 detects new hardware. If I am in the bootloader Win7 does not play any of that sounds.
I remember using adb and I still have the files on my computer from when I unlocked and rooted.
Not sure what should I do now?
