    While I'm thinking about it, I thought this might be a driver problem, but all that was installed when I unlocked with Android SDK. Is there another driver I'm not thinking of?

    I have a workaround for you. Power off the device manually. Boot into the bootloader by holding down the vol up and down buttons while powering on the phone. You will see the android guy. Then in your command prompt navigated to the adm folder type "fastboot oem lock" and you will see the lock state at the bottom in red instantly change.

    edit: Please note that doing this will wipe your device!

    That was flawless, thank you! I wish unlocking was that simple and quick. I should not that it did not wipe my device, but it did take a few minutes to find service. I'm assuming Verizon will want this back once they call me back. The reception on this thing is terrible. My wife's OG Droid blows it out of the water on 3G speed and get's a better signal everywhere I do.

    It is terrible on all of them. In fact, they are starting to roll out a 4.0.4 OTA that you can flash yourself if you are so inclined. It has dramatically improved my 3G and 4G.

    The best upload speed possible I can get on this is 3 kilobytes per second for 3G in the best signal area that I know. I asked a friend who lives in a different area but has the same phone to test his and his reached 40 kilobytes or so per second. It would be nice if Google pushed these updates for those of us who aren't flashing our phones, at least not yet.

    Something is definitely up. My suggestion is to get a new SIM card. And for the love of God don't try to force a *228 update on your phone, it will damage your SIM.

    FYI, locking the bootloader doesn't wipe the device. Unlocking it does.

    Remember, there is a "stock" 4.0.4 update floating around with stock 4.0.4 radios. Just in case you get board waiting.

    Hi,

    The download location for GNexRestore.bat in post 25 and the original manual script are empty. Any possibility of getting them reestablished?

    Thanks

    Thanks for providing this, but I still need a bit of help.
    Apologies if these are newbie questions.

    I'm working off of the OP's instructions and have figured out to append the OS of the machine that I'm on for the adb and fastboot commands.

    However, I don't see the image files from the original instructions in your zip file, namely

    fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-toro-primekk15.img
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
    fastboot flash radio radio-toro-i515.ek02.img
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
    fastboot flash radio-cdma radio-cdma-toro-i515.ek05.img [might hang for a few]

    Are they renamed or am I just missing them? Help?

    Thanks

    The files are zipping up now - sorry about the links in the OP, will fix later...

    Until the .zip is done uploading, here's a link to the folder on my dropbox that has each individual file to download, and simply stick in the same folder as your adb and fastboot files.

    There might be a file or two in there you don't need, so make sure you grab the right ones.
