    So decided to flash Franco's kernel today (first kernel I've ever flashed). Did it through the CWM route; dropped the .zip into the root of the SD and flashed it with CWM. Once it said successful flash for some reason the 'back menu button disabled' and there was no "enter" key, so I pulled the battery. Booted up but stuck at the Google screen. So I go back to CWM and reflash the kernel, and same thing. Flashing back to a backup right now...

    You have to press both volume buttons together to re enable the back button. Give touch clockwork a try. This issue has been fixed on that one

    Still it did successfully flash, unless pulling the battery really messes it up. I never pulled the battery in CWM before. I let it sit at the Google screen for 5 minutes and it didn't budge so something must've gone wrong.

    Mind providing link for touch CWM?

    Running ADR, figured that was the problem after I did it. Been skipping all sorts of important details lately :frown:

    Thanks for the link. Maybe I'll flash Gummy...

    Ok...for some reason I got an email saying you replied to this thread because you were having fastboot troubles, but I don't see it here. Anyway, if you actually are having that problem, I had that once too. You need to uninstall all the drivers. You are going to delete your root folder (assuming you used Sbenson's guide to root). Just go back to Sbenson's root/unlock thread to get the superboot file. Then perform all the steps regarding loading the drivers. Then instead of unlocking and rooting just use the superboot file to get your ADB and fastboot up and running.

    Yeah I'm starting all from scratch, without the unlocking/rooting of the nexus.

    Ok I redid all the steps for sbenson's until the actually unlocking of the phone, still a no go...

    whenever I type in "fastboot devices" or "adb devices" in I get "___ is not recognized as an internal or external command operable program or batch file."

    When reinstalling PDAnet I did notice it kept saying there was a previous driver installed, though I thought I uninstalled it before.

    Seriously about to use the CWM installer app through the market....

    The only problem with that is that you'll likely need fastboot again at some point.

    I don't get why it doesn't recognize though. Gettin a little frustrated with it so I'll take a break from it. I'll try starting from scratch again tomorrow if I have time. Just don't get why it doesn't recognize it's in bootloader

    Thanks for helping syndicate:)

    Did you ever get it figured out? Sounds like a definite driver issue. May have some conflicting with others. You might try USB Deview to remove all of the drivers at once and then start out fresh.

    Nope haven't figured it out, and my main PC actually crashed on me today (Blue screen of death). First one in years, had a feeling it was time for a reformat and memory test. Gonna give it a shot hopefully later tonight or tomorrow. Recovering some files right now....

    Thanks for posting the Deview, will definitely remember that for next time

    Technology hasn't been working well with me past couple days. I'm just glad I'm healthy, that's what counts:)

    If this reformat doesn't work then I'm seriously lost. I tried sbenson's method twice and it still didn't work. Anyone got another method they tried?

    Try moving ADB to a different folder location. Create an android-sdk folder on the root of your C drive and move your superboot file there. If that doesn't work, it's definitely a driver issue. If you're having trouble un-installing the drivers, the only thing I could suggest is rolling your PC back to a date before you installed the driver the first time.

    Well I'm rolling my PC back to factory settings...BSoD on me earlier today. Clean slate, hopefully I can get it working. Once I'm done recovering my files and moving them to an external I may just give it a shot right away that way in case I do have to reformat again I don't have to waste so much time transferring files back

    You could try Wug's toolkit. Lots of people have had success with it. As nice as it is, I still always prefer people to go about things manually to familiarize themselves with the process. Here is the guide I used for getting ADB set up for my phone. Then it's as simple as running 2 commands to push the recovery file.

    Well this is frustrating....Drivers won't properly install even after USB Deview. I get "Galaxy Nexus" which installs drivers properly and then "Galaxy" which doesn't find proper drivers.

    Does it matter that I'm already rooted and have Android Revolution? Only thing I can think of at this point
