    Flashing your Nexus back to stock to receive updates

    Thanks to member hero for bringing this to my attention:

    [HOW TO] Flash stock Recovery to VZW Galaxy Nexus before accepting an OTA update.

    This assumes that you:
    - have a factory image installed on your VZW Galaxy Nexus and have replaced recovery with ClockworkMod Recovery.
    - you have ADB setup corectly: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.com/wiki/How...id_SDK#Windows

    1. Download the Android 4.0.2 factory images to your PC from Google:https://dl.google.com/dl/android/aos...y-65895fa8.tgz
    *We are interested in the stock recovery image named recovery.img.

    2. Unzip the file and its contents into your SDK/Tools folder (wherever your adb.exe and fastboot.exe files are).

    *Make sure they are not in their own folder, but have all been extracted to Tools.

    3. From within the Tools folder, open a command prompt (SHIFT + right click and select “open command prompt here”).

    4. Type the following commands, allowing each to finish before moving onto the next:


    adb reboot bootloader

    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

    fastboot reboot bootloader


    5. Once you Reboot into the bootloader scroll down (volume keys) and select "Recovery mode" (power button).

    6. You should now see the default recovery not Clockworkmod recovery.
    7. Now you can install an OTA and it should install fine.

    Silly question, maybe, but...

    When I installed CWM, rather than delete "recovery-from-boot.p", I just added ".bak" to it, allowing CWM to survive reboots. If I want to remove CWM, can't I just remove the .bak from recovery-from-boot.p and reboot?

    (Stock ROM, just rooted and CWMed)
