IIRC if your on TMobile, you don't need s-off and must be locked and could flash it. Other carriers no.

I knew this would happen!

I'm S-ON, Unlocked bootloader, on GB rooted rom.

Hooked up my phone and ran ControlBear, was all fine until I got to the wiretrick. Used a insulated paperclip. After a few tries, it finally made the Windows sound, and so i hit it again 1 second after.

Phone reboots into Fastboot, and then Controlbear says the Device can not be found?

I disconnect and am stuck at the Green Recovery screen.

Last page, someone says to Flash stock RUU? Would I be flashing the ICS leak RUU??

How do i get it onto my SD card, since I can only boot into Recovery and am stuck at the Green Arrows screen?

Okay I'm panicking now.

Went back and read your replies.

Went and fastbooted CWM recovery.

Booted into CWM, and tried to Mount the USB, my computer says to FORMAT THE DRIVE.

I hit format, and it formats the card to 125KB (????) No option to format it otherwise.

Formats, and now my computer reads the drive as only have 125KB! Can't put anything on the SD card!

STUCK AT Green Arrows still! Some one please help!

There should he a warning for newbys to not do this without holding an experienced modders hand.
What's the First Rule? Read the instructions.
What's the Second Rule? Use the Search Engine.

Wait....I sent this with Tapatalk?

Not helpful.

I've just about read through all 60 pages of this thread. I SEARCHED and followed instructions given by another member, and now my SD card is wiped and won't allow me to put anything on it, because it thinks its only 125KB.

If you have a card reader, put it in there and format it on your pc, then put the ruu on it and boot into bootloader.

I'm sorry for panicking, and being snappy at people in here.

I found and flashed 4EXT recovery instead of CWM, and when mounting USB storage, my computer again asked to format the drive, but this time recognized the SD card as being its normal size.

For some reason CWM wasn't correctly mounting the mass storage drives. Re-formatting the SD card as we speak. Hopefully should be okay.

FWIW, i read and tried pretty much everything..i guess my timing is that bad where I'd get stuck with it trying to find the device..i uninstalled iTunes and whatever else I thought would interfere. Anyway, I was stuck on the green arrows as well, but I could get into recovery...I just flashed Faux kernel from All In One Kit 3.1 and I was able to boot up normally with the restored nandroid and reformat my SD card on the phone. Thanks for posting useful tips.

Figured out how to get out of the green arrow screen, and back to regular android.

Tried for over 5 hours straight to get the wire-trick down. But still got the Still Sober fail.

Used both a speaker wire, and a insulated paper clip. It might still be my timing, but also I was rooted with Capn rom. I'm not sure if the rom was the problem.

Got tired of trying to S-Off and relocked my bootloader, and flashed the ICS RUU.

Will try Juopunutbear on the ICS rom later once I get some sleep.
