Hi,

I had flashed the NexusXperia ROM on my Nexus S just recently. After trying it out I restored the stock ICS 4.0.4....

For some reason the phone keeps on showing the HD bootscreen continously without starting up....

I thought of clearing the dalvik and re-installing via restore however now that it's not got any recovery neither is it being detected on my pc....

I remember deactivating the USB debugging mode and probably this could be the reason it's not being detected....

Is there a way to flash recovery without debugging mode switched ON or is there a way to simply switch ON the USB debugging mode from bootloader screen....

ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED ON THIS....

I have tried on windows 7 as well as on Ubuntu....but the device is not detected....thanks in advance.....

Fastboot is the mode you need to be in for fastboot.exe to detect the phone. Put it into that mode and try to flash the recovery with fastboot.exe using the command you posted above.
