    No. Don't add in that ".exe"

    Try again

    Also, if your fastboot executable thinger is "fastboot-windows.exe", use "fastboot-windows" instead of fastboot.

    If not, if just fastboot.exe, copy and paste my commands. Make note that the one command with the "-w" in it must be written out, not pasted. Why? Have not the slightest idea lol

    Thanks for your quick reply again! Imagine if businesses had such responsive support staff. And you guys aren't even paid to help us.

    Check it out: I got it working. Turns out it was my fault all along, sorry. I noticed I had the Easy Tether installed and running on my computer and figured that since it too uses the USB debugging mode of my android phone, it could be be interfering. So I simply exited Easy Tether on my computer and suddenly all your commands worked. I've just now gone all the way thru to relocking the bootloader and rebooting and signing into Google again.

    BTW, on that last command with the "-w", I just copied your command but retyped the "-" in "-w" and it worked.

    Thanks again for all your help!

    Woohoo! And now here comes Jelly Bean!

    Lol no worries. This stuff is always an adventure. I appreciate your comments!

    Regarding the -w thing, nice catch to isolate it to that. Sorta makes sense I suppose. Thanks!

    Oh, and welcome to Jelly Bean

    The Jelly Bean images have been released.

    https://dl.google.com/dl/android/aos...y-f17426e6.tgz

    I will update the commands later, but if you wanna download it and fastboot it, just plug in the new filenames .

    You can flash all of this stuff from whatever you're on. It'll replace everything, just like going back to "stock" (except your stock was probably 4.0.2 or 4.0.4)

    IMO, don't worry about it. Make sure to flash the radios (see zero's thread stickied here) and you'll be good to go .

    I'm sure Bugless will be updated soon enough. Honestly there is nothing you are missing out on.. It's a higher JB build number, no substantial changes.

    If I don't want to go completely back stock and just want the stock ROM, can I just use the last fastboot command?
    Code:
    fastboot –w update image-mysid-jro03o.zip

    Negative... that "-w" is what instructs the command to wipe the old stuff, and trying to flash a factory image without wiping you will be lucky if it boots up at all.

    I plan on wiping /data and maybe even /system. I just don't want to return to stock bootloader et al.

    You're not on a custom bootloader, unless there's something out there I don't know about? IMO, the best thing about this update was the bootloader and radios.

    Right. I just want to go back to stock ROM without going all the way stock. I'm having odd lag issues, and I wanted to know if stock had the same.

    I don't want to go through the process of looking my bootloader, returning to stock recovery, and the rest in the guide. I just want stock Jelly Bean the way Verizon and Google intended.

    It's an experiment.

    That's just an update, right? Wouldn't that cause problems flashing over CM10-M1? It was my understanding that OTA updates just update system files and fail if the files are different from expected.

    There should be a deodexed/rom version that you can flash.

    True, but it's not quite the same as stock ROM. I'm ok with losing data. I have backups. I'd just rather not go through more than necessary.

    If you're ok with losing data then I wouldn't worry about it and just go the fastboot image route. To be honest, I'm kind of unsure what you're worrying about?

    If you want stock, you either go stock or flash the stock rom, ya know?

    I'm really just wanting to know if I can skip all but the last step and end up with a stock image while keeping TWRP installed. I know it's not saving a lot of time in steps, but it means I don't have to transfer the contents of my internal storage off my phone and then back on if I don't have to lose TWRP in there for a time. The stock recovery formats /mnt/sdcard along with /data (I guess because it's in /data/media/), and TWRP does not.

    Just a time-saving step I'm pondering while I can't do it yet anyway (need my phone for work).

    Well, the recovery image is within that zip you highlighted earlier--so flashing that will flash the recovery. Why not flash all of that then flash TWRP? The only thing you'd have to do is go in and remove that reboot-from-recovery.p file.

    I'll look into that. Thanks!

    Does your bootloader need to be unlocked to do this?
