[Q] Nexus S not booting after attempted CM 11.0 M6 update
I'm in desperate need of help with my Nexus S. After updating CM it wont boot at all.
Earlier on, I've updated between 10.x releases using the CM Updater. I've done a backup using TWRP and then just clicked the latest stable and the phone has automatically updated, without any problems at all.
After much consideration I decided to go ahead and updated to the M6 version of CM11 for the Nexus S. This release was listed under "stable" releases (which is somewhat confusing, as it isn't a stable release?) in the CM Updater.
First I did a backup with TWRP and then I went ahead and selected the M6 release from the CM Updater. This is where I now know (via #cyanogenmod) that I did something wrong. I shouldn't have updated from a 10.x release to a 11.x release without wiping. However, there was no such information in the CM Updater and the release was listed under "Stable", so I never gave wiping a thought.
However, the phone reobooted and started updating, but displayed some errors that i didn't have time to write down.
Then it just rebooted and hung at the google logo. I waited for 15 minutes, and it was still just displaying the Google logo. So, I went into TWRP and restored the backup I did. after that the phone rebooted and it still hung at the Google logo. I pulled the battery again and went into TWRP and did a factory reset and tried rebooting. The phone hung at the Google logo again. This is when I did a factory reset AND restored my backup. STILL, the phone hangs at the Google logo.
What should I do? Is my trusted Nexus S gone forever?
