    This worked PERFECTLY! Android 4.1.1 OTA immediately started downloading upon bootup. Thanks for putting this together!

    I am trying to go to stock but my charging port is jacked and I can only charge the phone and not sync it to my computer. Is there a way that I can do this from my phone without it being connected to the computer? I just want stock JB now.

    At which point should I start worrying that I may have a Nexus Brick? I have run this and been patient...20+ minutes stuck on the Google logo screen (the lock icon is now gone so the fastboot is re-locked). reboot/battery pull does nothing. I re-ran the .bat and it appears to have reloaded but I am still getting the same thing. What I have tried prior to this:

    Fast boot OEM unlock -> Recovery = Dead android (never saw that before)
    Forced in a Recovery.img (ver 3101) wiped cache, Data/factory reset = colorful boot splash screen that went no further.
    Found a 4.0.4 zip and fastboot flash zip update.zip = Infinite Splash screen
    ODIN to with IMM76D = bootloop
    Tried a one-click that I found similar to this one = NOPE can't get to USB Debugging

    Does anyone have the .tar files to load into ODIN so I can try that before I throw this away? I would need the specific place within Odin to put each .tar (the one listed above was labeled blahblaBOOTLOADER.tar, blahblahMODEM.tar, blahblahPDA.tar) Or if I could get a .zip over to the 'sd card' via ADB Bridge (again I would need the steps since I have failed at every attempt) I could force Recovery.img and 'boot .zip from SD Card'

    edit: It's Hardbricked now...nevermind everyone!

    If your already rooted you can look around for a stock "rooted" version of JB. Otherwise you need a computer to flash the images or use the One Click.

    Paul627g, can you update the link to hlxanthus's One-Click-Stock JB build? The one in post #1 points to an invalid file on goo.im, but the one in post #44 points to the full 197 MB file.

    Trying to do the one_click_unroot. Need to restore to stock from my current custom rom and relock. Tried several times, but each time the process get stuck on the "sending system" part. It goes through the "sending boot" and "writing boot" parts okay, but gets stuck on the "sending system" stage. Any help would be greatly appreciated. TIA

    Update: after this last (unsuccessful) attempt, now the phone just boots to the initial Google screen (with unlocked icon) and then goes blank with soft keys at bottom staying lit...

    Help! I can't get it to recognize my device. I tried installing PDANet but that also can't find my device (gives error 103 and 104). I went to their site and installed the Samsung drivers like they recommended but that didn't fix it. Any fixes for this issue?

    Can you provide a little description of the events leading up to this?

    Plus as always try the usual....

    Different USB cable, different ports (ones on the back closest to the motherboard are preferred), different computer if possible.

    I finally got the driver to install by going into Device Manager (in Administrator Tools) and selecting the "?NexusS4G" and PDANet installed but now PDANet cannot connect because of an HTC Sync error. It says to uninstall HTC but I can't find that anywhere and never installed it myself (someone else oes have an HTC phone and connected it to this computer but never manually installed anything).

    Using WinXP service pack 3. Tried it in all the USB slots. Restarted, etc. I have CM9 on the phone.

    Never got it to work (I hate Windows BTW). No idea why it needs drivers installed. I gave up and decided to look at the "run.bat" and realized it was just running a few commands. So on my Linux machine, I downloaded the fastboot tool and just ran the commands manually. It took 15 seconds and was easy. Did I mention I hate Windows?

    I don't understand Windows' drivers mess. This has been a problem with them for decades. Why haven't they changed the way this all works?

    You could try this as a last ditch effort. It will at least get you back on ICS 4.0.4 which is fine. Get here and we have options from there and it should resolve your bootloader issue.

    Here is a package I've put together for a few people. Its very similar to the One Click's but with out all the little checks and prompts that seems to cause issues for some...

    [WARN] This package will LOCK your bootloader back up, so if you don't want this option please let me know and I can tell you how to change it or offer you a different script without locking the bootloader. It will restore your device back to Gingerbread v2.3.7[/WARN]

    1. Make sure you have drivers installed. I recommended Google and download/install PDAnet for your computer. Allow it to install your drivers (pick Samsung) for your device and if prompted to overwrite existing found Samsung drivers allow it to do so. This will also install PDAnet app on your device. Let it do so. Basically this will create a life line between your computer & device.

    2. Download the package below. Extract it to your hard drive on your computer.

    3. Boot your device into the bootloader. Powered off, press Power+Volume Up.

    4. Connect your device via USB cable to your computer.

    5. Look inside that extracted package for "run.bat" file. Click on it and the process of flashing should begin. This will only take a few minutes if all goes well.

    6. It will finish and reboot you into Gingerbread v2.3.7 which you can then wait 5,10, 15 minutes or so to receive the OTA update to official Android ICS 4.0.4.

    Care to explain where/what your stuck on?

    Bottom line it comes down to connection issues most of the time. That usually means a bad usb cable or using a different usb port or computer.

    Awesome Paul627g. I just used this to revive a Nexus S 4G that was bootlooping and had a red exclamation point in the recovery.

    Hi Tony,

    Do you still need help with this? I'm not familiar with Odin so I'm not sure if you can convert these files to files you can install through Odin. But everything is here for you to unbrick your phone through fastboot, using either the one click method or doing flashing each img file manually. I just did this process myself about 2 weeks ago, so let me know if you need any guidance.
