If the power button simply turns on the phone, rather quickly, regardless of which Volume button you hold down, you have fastboot enabled. To disable:
1) Settings, Power, Fast boot (uncheck it).

It's volume down and power.

This ia great! Thanks.

However, the above did not always work for me (see http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...5#post36032065). I need to:
  1. Extract the "boot.img" file from the zip file on my PC
  2. Reboot the phone into Recovery
  3. Perform a nandroid backup
  4. Wipe data/factory reset
  5. Format system,data, and cache (my machine does not have dalvik. Also, I think data and cache were already done by the previous wipes)
  6. Boot the phone into fastboot mode and connect it to the PC
  7. Run fastboot flash boot boot.img
  8. Reboot the phone into Recovery
  9. Flash the zip file
  10. Reboot the phone.

Isn't that how it's been recommended to flash it all this time? You have to do everything everyone else does for a flash, with the added step of fastboot flash boot boot.img at some point since we're S-ON.

Or did I miss something you were saying?

Yeah pretty sure you need to flash rom first then kernel, if you do it the otherway it would get overwritten
