    Hi guys
    I recently tried to root my nexus s with superboot for android 2.3.3.
    Unfortunately i was running 2.3.4 and now my nexus will not boot past the screen which says google.

    I've been searching this forum and many others trying to find a solution, but i cant work it out.
    Can anyone help me?

    If you want a bug report/serial number i'll happily provide it.

    On XDA forums, there is a thread stickied in the General section about upgrading to 2.3.4. It has links to "Full ROM" versions for 2.3.4 for each model of the Nexus S. Download the appropriate one for your model and flash it from the recovery menu. Make sure to wipe the /data and cache before flashing the ROM.

    This will put you back to an entirely stock 2.3.4 device.

    Thanks, I'll try that and post again if it works!

    BTW, would it be any trouble to post links? I'm a little new to those forums and am not sure exactly where to look.

    Ok, I think i dont know enough to do this operation. Because whenever i try to push the file to the sdcard it does not appear in the menu 'apply update from sdcard'.
    Could you tell me in more detail how to flash the ROM to my nexus?

    Glad you got it to work. I would have posted links myself, but I was responding using my phone. I was too lazy to go through the extra effort of finding the links and copy/pasting them on a phone, lol.
