Guys,

I've just spent the last hour and a half trying to re-flash back to stock...the first three attempts "sort-of" worked...but the "writing 'system'..." part never finished...it just sat there. Tried this with different fastboot programs and finally realized that the USB port I was using was a 3.0 port. When I switched to a USB 2.0 port, things took off:

Code:
c:\gnex\sdk-tools>fastboot -w update image-mysid-icl53f.zip
archive does not contain 'boot.sig'
archive does not contain 'recovery.sig'
archive does not contain 'system.sig'
--------------------------------------------
Bootloader Version...: PRIMEKK15
Baseband Version.....: I515.EK02
Serial Number........: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
--------------------------------------------

              writing 'system'... OKAY [ 36.349s]
            erasing 'userdata'... OKAY [  6.172s]
               erasing 'cache'... OKAY [  0.189s]
                     rebooting...
finished. total time: 85.800s
Now, I only updated the system image and didn't flash the bootloader or radio (they shouldn't have been different and there's no good that can come from tempting fate, eh? ).

Also, what is curious is that ALL of my apps are still there in the app drawer...even the busybox and Superuser apps--of course I am not rooted anymore, but the telltale signs are there.

Okay, I'm off to test rooting via using ClockworkMod custom recovery...

Cheers!
