Remember - These builds are not official. They are being built from source on github, possibly with changes that may or may not end up in the official builds.

Will need to know how to flash recovery through fastboot since you need to use clockwork 3.

I've attached a working recovery. (the attached recovery has been updated to 3.0.0.1, shoud fix some mounting issues. )

adb reboot bootloader

$fastboot flash recovery /path/to/recovery.img


If you 'd rather do it from the emulator follow http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=10131596&postcount=361


This is an alpha, so use at your own risk. And its definitely not official. So far no one has mentioned anything that doesn't work, but as usual, use at your own risk. Thatguy32404 and I are not responsible for anything that happens to your phone.

You also need gapps for 2.3, http://koush.tandtgaming.com//google/gapps-gb.zip
Alo, thanks to Grankin01, we now have a working gappps zip with the new market.

Also, if you decide to go back to a froyo rom, you'll need to flash the old recovery. Its also attached. If you need help flashing the recovery,

So far all I can tell is wifi isn't working. Still testing everything else.

GPS works.

Wifi wirked after a reboot, not sure if that means its gonna continue working.

Also, I cant get my computer to even recognize the phone through adb. Tried updating the drivers and still no luck.

yup theyre right just a reboot will fix the wifi and for me i have windows 7 and my pc wont recognize my phone lol other than that everything seems fine oh and i noticed that this rom boots up pretty quick like under 10 seconds which is not bad at all ;) and the gapps-gb.zip that Jeffmeister post above work just fine as well too

PS- but the market is the old style if you want the new 2.2.7 you will need to download the apk from the nexus s forum

    Confirmed usb mount working!!

    I have CM7 installed and I just got Windows to recognize the SDCARD via USB Mounting!!!!

    Now again I am using Windows 7 so the steps are almost exactly the same. I literally just changed the device to a USB Mass Storage device and it worked!

    Lol after trying so many drivers and it being the generic driver makes me angry. Here's what I did.

    1. Right click on My Computer, go to Properties.

    2. Go to Device Manager

    3. Find your My HTC (should be the second one Android USB Device), right click on it and select Update Driver Software

    4. Then select Browse My Computer for Software

    5. Then choose Let Me Pick which driver to install on the bottom.

    6. Then choose USB Mass Storage Device

    Then it takes some time to think and viola! All working! However we are not DONE!

    EDIT: So the next step I did after experienced issues remounting after unplugging the phone. I have change the MTP to ADB Testing Interface and things seem to be mounting everytime. Rebooted phone and PC, both worked again so I think this may be a working solution.

    Now go to MTP.

    1. Right click on My Computer, go to Properties.

    2. Go to Device Manager

    3. Find your MTP (should be under Unknown Devices), right click on it and select Update Driver Software

    4. Then select Browse My Computer for Software

    5. Then choose Let Me Pick which driver to install on the bottom.

    6. Then choose Google Inc. and the Driver is ADB Testing Interface.

    ENJOY!



    Should I start a new thread for this? If so do I post this in Android Development?
