I will make this short and sweet.  Anyone that was waiting for the Jelly Bean image to be available direct from Google can now go get it here: https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images#sojus.  This should make flashing new ROMs a lot less worry-some.  Get the images and then go ahead flash to your heart’s content.

Here it is the link from good to the Jelly Bean for the Nexus S 4G.  Read on for the link and instructions. (more…)

I was a victim to clicking through things too fast and was recently greeted with a blank friends list when I pulled my phone out the other day to see if my wife had made it where she was going.  The version of maps that is running on devices with Jelly Bean such as the Nexus 7 is different than what is currently running on 4.0.4.  If you did what I did and un-checked the wrong box you can actually mess up friends for all other mobile devices and even using a browser.  Instructions on how to get your Friend List back after the break.

There was a change to the Google drivers page that now includes the CDMA and LTE drivers for the VZW GNex.  Yeah you read the title and that first sentence right.  Not sure if NFC will work since that is listed separate for the Nexus S but not listed for the Galaxy Nexus.  The good news is though a clean AOSP source build will have working CDMA LTE.  Expect the Jelly Bean ROMs to take off now that the source is live and you can pull the binaries.  There is one thing though that everyone should know before jumping for joy.  We are missing some files yet… (more…)

A few weeks ago I posted a link to some of the CM9 themes out there and have kept looking for new ones since those released.  I am pleased to write that there are lot more of them now and I have been trying a few here and there.  I am hoping to try a few and then either weekly or possibly monthly write up a post of my favorite ones.  Here are a few that I found in the last few weeks that I think are worth a mention.

With the 4.0.4 leak out a lot of people were wondering what happens if this is not made available to the general public.  I did some digging around have been working with the built in backup of ICS using ADB.  Read on for instructions to backup your phone. (more…)

I have seen a few posts on other forums about people wanting to go back to stock to get the OTA.  There have also been a lot of questions about rooting after the OTA and if it will remove root.  I decided I would take my phone back to 2.3.7 and then install superuser for 2.3.7.  After that I will take the OTA to see if a few things happen.  Is the recovery replaced?  Does the OTA remove the SU binary and in effect superuser access?  Read on to see the results and what the next steps are.

So you don’t want to flash that nice full factory image I posted?  What if you are not one of the first people to get the OTA since Sprint said it could take “weeks” for all devices to get it? Read on for the update link and instructions. (more…)

I might be a little late on this one but the Nexus S 4G IMM76D Factory image is available.  If you don’t want to wait for your OTA notification or if you just don’t want to ever go back to gingerbread here is the link: http://goo.gl/uRREq

Just a quick update that I saw on Google+ today.  ICS 4.0.4 is rolling out for the NS4G, all I can say is about time.  Here is the link to the Google+ post: http://goo.gl/FqELZ
