Official Android 4.0 for Nexus S tested on I9023


I own a GT-I9023 Nexus S phone. Google officially released 4.0 for Nexus s, so I immediately started to install it manually.
I downloaded the update from Google and installed it following this steps:

  • Copy update.zip to the root of your internal storage
  • Switch off your Nexus S
  • Hold Volume Up and Power to reboot into the bootloader
  • Select “Recovery,” then press power button
  • Once the triangle with exclamation mark appears, press power button and volume up at the same time to enter recovery menu
  • Select “Apply update from /sdcard”

At first I tought everything is OK, but then I noticed there is "No service", the phone could not connect to the mobile network, so no phone calls or mobile net access was available.

TeamWin Releases TWRP 2.0, A Highly Customizable Touchscreen Recovery

thumbTeamWin, the developers who originally developed CyanogenMod's WiMax compatibility, have been working on TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) for a while now, and have just released the second iteration of the custom recovery.

TWRP 2.0's most notable new feature is without a doubt its touchscreen-centric GUI -- while this isn't a first, it certainly is extremely convenient: gone are the days of "scrolling" through lists with super-stiff volume buttons and selecting items with a click of the power button; with TWRP 2.0 you can simply tap and be there!
