    the adb folder is on your desktop right?

    type this:

    ~/Desktop/adb-fastboot/fastboot boot recovery.img

    bc you renamed the recovery-crespo-whatever.img to recovery.img right?

    on the phone in recovery mode - go to backup and restore - backup - make a new backup

    this will take a while, but it's a safety measure so you should just do it because otherwise if there is a snag the fix will take too long. and it's late. and my gf wants to go to bed. and i do what she says most of the time.

    ..... now we wait for it to make your backup.

    when that is done, still in recovery mode, go to Wipe Data/Factory reset. Select yes when it asks you to do it.

    After that, select Erase Cache - select yes.

    After that, select Advanced then select Clear Dalvik Cache - and select yes.

    After that, select go back to get back to the main menu.

    In the main menu, select Install zip from sd card.

    Then select Choose zip from sd card.

    Then, select the Download folder, and then select the 4.04 rom you moved over there.

    That will install for a minute, and then you select Reboot system now.
    after that, I highly recommend you read this thread: http://forums.androidcentral.com/ver...axy-nexus.html

    it's an excellent guide that will explain how to make backups, flash recovery (the easy way), and flash roms/etc.

    Once you have this 4.04 rom up and running, you should probably download rom manager and flash recovery (because the way we just used recovery isnt going to stick). Flashing recovery and making a new backup will be a good idea when you are done with what we're doing here.

    so, the rom should take about a minute to install, and when you reboot it might take 5-10 min on the bootup screen. Don't worry about how long its taking unless it goes over ten min, if it does let it go fifteen before we need to do something to fix it.

    and ima smoke a cig real quick, be back in 5-10 myself

    no problem man you should def read CyberWarrior's Guide that i linked ya to - that will show ya how to backup and restore and flash recovery etc.

    highly recommend flashing recovery for good - making a fresh backup - and then checking out some real roms like AOKP or Liquid or what have you.
