Wink Root nexus s 4g

This is this link for XDA unlocking, rooting, and installing recovery for the Nexus S 4G. I used this with build GRJ22. I take no credit for this. I just wanted to share here on PPCGEEKS.


[GUIDE] Step by Step ROOT Nexus S via ClockworkMod Recovery image (i9020T only) - xda-developers

If you have any problems you can read that forum or I will try my best to help.

Yes @ 1.2 it is stable for me. I had it running @ 1.4 but it got unstable real quick. 1.3 gave me some problems too.

Re: Root nexus s 4g

if i were to root my phone is there any way to go back to factory settings?

I've read in other sites that hard reset won't let the phone go back to factory settings.

any feedback would be appreciated.

If you maually rooted your android you have to pretty much manually unroot. I heard and read that flashing a stock is zip would relock, security is showing on.

Re: Root nexus s 4g

This is where i went for rooting (i understand how to use adb and to put the files necessary in the sdk's tools folder) [ROM][REF][RADIO][IMAGES][OTA] Everything For Nexus S 4G - xda-developers

the instructions are much simpler and BuglessPete gives a prerooted stock rom (with superuser, busybox, etc) and its ready to go after flashing.

here are the simple instructions:

1. Download GRJ22 Stock Rooted ROM from above
2. Download CWM Recovery
3. Use the following commands

adb reboot bootloader
fastboot oem unlock
fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-3.0.2.4-crespo.img

4. Navigate to "recovery" in the bootloader and select it
5. In recovery select "install zip from sdcard" > "choose zip from sdcard" > choose "GRJ22ODEXED.zip" > choose "Yes – Install GRJ22ODEXED.zip"
6. Reboot and thats it.


I urge anyone to go to the xda thread i linked above rather than trying to go off these steps alone. All downloads are at the xda thread.
