    Just wanted to add that you should be able to run this in adb shell if they don't want to use root explorer.

    Code:
     mv /system/etc/install-recovery.sh /system/etc/install-recovery.sh.bak
    I remember that prob,from the opti

    Hello! So, I just rooted my NS4G for the first time... and I have a couple of questions:

    1. I installed the Open Soju ROM and that reverted my phone to 2.3.4 - can I get the OTA for 2.3.5 now? Or will there be an updated ROM that will come with it?

    2. Will installing different ROMs wipe my device or just update the system?

    3. If I want to just install a Kernel, can I just flash it the same way (install zip from sd card or with ROM Manager)? And then how can I adjust the settings like LED notifications (capacitive keys)

    That's it for now! Thanks to this forum for all the info and support!

    If all stands the same as other rooted devices, once you flash a custom ROM you can't receive the OTA update anymore. You would have to flash a ROM built off 2.3.5

    When flashing a different ROM it is always recommended to wipe data (factory reset), cache partition, dalvik cache. So in answer to your question it will start you clean with the new ROM, but you won't loose what you have saved to your internal storage "sdcard". [TIP]This is why we recommend use of apps like Titanium Backup or MyBackup Root to backup important data/apps/app data so you can restore them after flashing to a new ROM.[/TIP]

    When flashing a kernel I have always just booted into CWM manually or using ROM Manager and flashed the kernel no wipe. Many do recommend to wipe cache/dalvik cache.

    Use app like BLN Control from the Market as a work around to LED notifications.

    Bare with me here if something I said isn't 100%, I'm coming over from the Epic 4g and getting up to speed quickly on the NS4G

    Ok... that being said. Any recos for killer 2.3.5 ROMs??? (Besides CM7)

    Also... I understand that the Netarchy Kernel (which is what Open Soju supposedly comes with, but not what the 'about phone' specs say) comes with the ability to enable capacitive button LED notification without having to use BLN. If so, how does it work? Where's the control?

    Thanks again!

    Here's a little update this is the newest recovery and a new zip. Have people flash this zip and if they happen to have install-recovery.sh it will delete that file. I just had a little fun and jumped back to stock.It won't hurt anything if they don't have the file either
    recovery- http://api.viglink.com/api/click?for...13152524284181

    Mirror of newest recovery just in case- http://www.mediafire.com/?64q6bkwf0hkspwy

    The install recovery file isn't in my etc folder on root explorer. Any ideas? I didn't use this rooting method I used shabby penguins one click root which is almost the same as this.

    Thanks for the great unlock and root instructions. Unlocked and rooted as soon as I got home with it. Right now I'm on stock updated ROM but that will probably change soon. While I like Sense 3.0 (I have an EVO 3D for my primary line) so far I am enjoying the pure Google experience.

    Mine was not updated when I got it Saturday. I ignored the nags and went ahead and unlocked and rooted, then flashed updated stock ROM until I decide what others to try.

    Yes the unlocking of your bootloader and installation of CWM recovery and flashing of SU access should be same with 2.3.7. I haven't heard anything different so it still applies even though the OP build version isn't up to date.

    By the way, nice to see you followed me over from the Epic 4g

    Tip: I know your a fan of ACS's work, you remember Dreamsforgotten from ACS and the Epic 4g? Well he has been working on a ported version of [ACS][ROM][PORT]Sbrissen's TSM Pool Party v1.2 on the Nexus and it functions very well... Has the multiple lockscreen mods and many other great tweaks... Worth checking out..

    I have a question about locking and unlocking my phone. Awhile back I rooted my phone and it worked just fine. Then something happened (maybe an update) and I no longer have rooted access. I went to reroot it today, here is where I run into trouble. When I type adb devices I get the serial number (which means the adb is correct) then I try and do anything else (lock, flash, root) it says <waiting for devices> but nothing happens. It's been sitting on that for a good 20 minutes now. Any help would be great!

    Thanks!

    Do you have pda net installed on both your computer and device? That seems to be the key to connections with the Nexus.

    OK. I'm close, but I have a problem. I used one-click to root, and it seemed to work just fine. Boot screen shows the unlock symbol, and superuser is in the app drawer. But everything says I don't have root. When I open Superuser, it tells me my binary is outdated, and instructs me to tap to update. I do that, and the process stops and I have to force close before the binary updates.

    What now? Any ideas?

    One quick emergency question - I just rooted my daughter's phone, successfully - but all of her pictures from the internal card is gone.

    Is there anyway to recover this???
