Note: If you are using a retail Nexus S, you may need to unlock the bootloader first, using './fastboot-windows oem unlock' (or the appropriate version for your PC). Note that the OEM unlock sequence wipes your device (including the internal SD storage!)


Hi, i have retail version of nexus s. And i tried 'fastboot-windows oem unlock' but it just says "waiting for device"

How can i do it?

Thanks
The drivers worked. You needed to know the the type of OS that your windows pc is running (either 32bit or 64bit) and select the correct driver accordingly
There is a lot more info on the XDA forums under 'unlocking the bootloader' which also helped.


Thanks for the link

Paul looks like all your download link for the superboot are corrupted, when tryna download them they all finished at about 200k rather than 4mb, so cant use it, plz check

Download is working fine. Superuser applies flawlessly. This is only for the nexus s. Go to nexus one section to make sure you are getting the right files.

On another note, my girlfriend's nexus one got the 2.3.3 OTA this morning on a UK Vodafone spec handset on o2.

Hi Paul, thanks for the 2.3.3 Root for Nexus S. Seems like everyone is correct on complaining regarding downloading the file. Your Load-Balancing server is timing the file out after 10-15% of the download - sure it does work for some of you out there but most of us regardless of using Regular or Accelerated downloads just cannot download the file. It would be nice if someone could provide mirror links with the proper consent of Paul.

EDIT: After hitting CTRL+F5 (PC) multiple times on the Captcha screen - the download finally went through 100%! Hope this works for some of you facing the same issue as I am.
