View Full Version : bricked Nexus S (i9020)

12-23-2011, 07:35 PM
I was upgrading the kernel to 2.6.35 and now my Nexus S is only at the boot screen.

The message that appears in red is: FASTBOOT MODE- NO BOOT OR RECOVERY IMG.

I did everything to return to factory settings (factory reset), but failed.

I did not backup the current kernel in SDCARD.

Is there any way to recover the system again via the USB port?

not sure what to say--sorry though

did you check the md5 before flashing

did you back up anything--and don't pull battery or you may be dead

if you are in fastboot, can dl to pc the stock hboot and a recovery image like amon and put them in your sdk tools folder and fastboot flash them

don't know if you do the kernel the same in this situation and in what order you do them

good luck
