Re: 4.3 flash timeline?
using osx. its been giving me grief with not recognizing terminal commands, but when it says its executing it has been.
I'm using a few instruction sets. it's hard to follow who's is who's as they link around a lot. Basically i'm using this:
Download the full occam factory image, which includes the full system, bootloader, recovery, kernel (boot.img), and radio. It's a clean slate for these components - they'll flash cleanly over anything you have now.
Instead of using the bundled script called flash-all, you will unpack the tgz (tar/gz) archive, and then the zip contained within as well. This will put all the components into one folder:
Follow the excellent guide over here and make sure to omit step D10, which overwrites userdata. Here are the commands you will be executing, for reference:
1. adb reboot bootloader
2. fastboot flash bootloader bootloader*.img
3. fastboot reboot-bootloader
4. fastboot flash radio radio-mako-m9615a-cefwmazm-2.0.1700.84.img
5. fastboot reboot-bootloader
6. fastboot flash system system.img
7. fastboot flash boot boot.img
8. fastboot format cache
9. fastboot reboot
Note: Instead of unpacking the image*.zip and flashing system and boot manually, you can actually do fastboot update image*.zip - this won't delete data (you would pass a -w flag if you wanted that to happen), but it will re-flash recovery back to stock if you were running a custom one. You can then flash it back, or just use the commands above instead. Either way, the result will be the same.
it worked up until the system flash.
I just checked your guide and it is the one I used to root the device.
I stopped terminal and tried to flash again, same problem. I stopped it again and booted it up. it seems to be working. I'm charging it right now, then I think I will try to load it from the sd card
