if you have any issues at all pm me as it get them as emails so i can know if someone is having problems.




lol this is for the ns4g as it uses crespo4g recovery, i know the nexus s could flash it but i am unaware of any ill side effects. i think worst case is you wont be able to flash a nexus s rom :O

its hosted on my server so dont worry about bandwidth or it going anywhere

Nice work! I don't see why people were trying to flame the idea. Its one less thing new users have to figure out. It'll keep a lit of newbie question threads from starting too.

When you told me ,you were getting an ns4g i was sold.
Knowing the hard work you put into the epic. I knew it would be the same for the nexus 4g.
Thanks for the hard work:D

Shabby, awesome job! I have a question on this. Will people still have to install drivers and sdk to do this? Im rooted, so I dont need it :p
But, my brother just picked up his NS4G today, and I dont wanna team view for 3 hours to get him all set up...

no way to avoid installing the drivers tho, i included a readme and pdanet as it not only is a good program, but uses a nice easy installer for the drivers

Whatever

Dude, I posted a solution at post #23, which is the same thing that shabby posted at post #26 in the bounty thread.

I am not discounting shabby as I am sure he knew how to do exactly what he did, but next time you offer something, you should pony up to the first solution that does what you requested.

Compare my batch file to his if you don't have any faith. Just because I made sure you were serious, and you took offense, doesn't mean you shouldn't do what is right.

And by the way, I apologized for any hurt feelings over my, "Are you serious" comment.

EDIT - I was missing a library, fair enough. Statement Retracted.

i understand your concern about this issue, but i think it was more of a mine had everything included in it from the get go, whereas your option (at the time) still required drivers to be searched and used.

also
mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etx/install-recovery.sh.bak
mount -o ro,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system

wouldnt have done anything as system is mounted to
mount -o remount,rw /dev/block/platform/s3c-sdhci.0/by-name/system /system

and as a side note the su zip wouldnt have pushed as when you flashed cwm it unmounts the sdcard, have to go in and manually mount it.

again i am sorry but i was the first one to have a fully working version.. if you have any issue with this please either post in the other thread, or take this to a pm

Shabby, I returned to stock to try this out and after the unlock when it boots into recovery, it's getting hung up at the android logo and an exclamation point. What would cause that?

ah yes, this zip is assuming you dont have path set/sdk installed ill look into making a newer version thats a bit more advanced tomorrow. prolly whip up a linux friendly version as well. can try mac but no guarantees

on a side note might wanna update your sdk as the newer ones use "platform-tools" for adb/fastboot

    Oh, but mine was no good? :/

    well for one man all yours did was unlock the bootloader and flash the nexus s recovery.. 3.1.0.1 is the first working version for the nexus s 4g. on a side note did you happen to look at yours compared to simon's? no?

    http://pastebin.com/ge2ur1f5 yours
    http://pastebin.com/eDyCi53C his

    just for giggles http://pastebin.com/7A6uXjKM is mine. anyways as chris has already paid simon for it its pretty much a moot point.

    so now being back on topic, i have no idea on why people are haviong this issue ive tried it on 3 different windows computers installing the drivers as i did it and yet it still flashes cwm for me. the only thing i can think to do is create a stop/go version with debugging in every line and have people figure out whats going on. but clearly the cwm isnt getting flashed which i dont know why i built a failsafe in if it cant find the recovery to end the script before it even starts...


    EDIT ok i think i got it this time, please try one last time..
