I bought my google nexus s from carphone warehouse and its on the vodafone network in the UK.
The details from the phone are:
Android version 2.3.6
Baseband version I9020XXKF1
Kernel version 18.104.22.168-gf5f63ef [email protected]
Build number GRK39F
My phone has not been rooted, and is completely stock (apart for the apps ive installed). The only updates that have been applied are those that come OTA. Im doing this because Vodafone UK seem to have no interest in updating the nexus s with the latest ICS.
From looking at these threads, I think this thread has the correct software to download and install on the phone, so I downloaded the incremental update 2.3.6 > 4.0.3 - firstly could you confirm that this is the correct rom ?
So then I renamed the file to update.zip, and copied it onto the root of the sd card.
I then powered off the phone and turned it back on whilst holding the power button and volume up to get to the bootloader.
I selected recovery and then phone reboots and shows the google logo for a second or two, then a box being unpacked for a second, and then an exclamation mark with a droid underneath it.
Could someone please give me some pointers as to what Im doing wrong here ? If its a stock update, then I dont think I have to unlock the bootloader.
I can then pull the battery and it will reboot as normal.
Thanks in advance.
