    Is there a way to Root the Nexus S 4G without connecting it to your computer using the usb cable, via wireless perhaps? Unfortunately about a month ago my cat decided she didn't like my phone and peed on it. Yes she pee'd on it! I thought I had cleaned it up but after recharging it for a few minutes I noticed smoke coming out of the USB port. I unplugged the charger from my phone but the chargers connection and the usb on my phone were both fried. Since I didn't pay for a replacement plan I have been charging the battery in an external charger.

    None that I'm aware of...

    Have you considered contacting some of your local independent repair shops or even Samsung and see what the cost/replacement options you have?

    Considering a replacement via warranty would still be a deduct able $100... used on Craigslist or eBay, these go for $150 or so. Not cheap I know...but better than one that doesn't work. Yeah I wish z4 root worked for this phone... but it doesn't.

    No I haven't contacted them. I'm not sure if the cost of repair is worth being able to root the phone or I may just wait for the official OTA even though that seems like it may never come.

    I use my phone for work and personal and have a 6 month old baby. I really can't be without my phone if it requires an extended time to repair.

    I thought about a replacement but if I'm going to spend money on a phone I'd rather wait and get an upgrade. I think my next upgrade is in May or June.

    Take an old phone and have them activate that while it is being repaired. I had to live with a baby pink palm centro for a week but I had a phone(I'm a guy so it was a little embarrassing )
