Why another post for stock files? Well for a few reasons, mainly the lack of quality found amongst the files in similar threads on the web. When I got my Nexus S 4G I took a look around the web, downloaded the stock roms that were floating around and noticed they were very flawed. The update scripts used in them were poorly done, seem to be the result of copy and pasting many update scripts together. The boot.imgs were also flawed, some of them even 8mbs in size, the stock boot.img is 2.8mb. After running them through one of my scripts, I also noticed many apps were not even zipaligned. Needless to say I did not flash these files. I took it upon myself to remake all these files. Stock files are essential to a development phone and can save many people in a sticky situation. Also, I have noticed that the official stock software images have not been released yet, so I went ahead and uploaded those for you all as well. These images include radio, boot, recovery, system, userdata, and bootloader. Please note, this post is not intended to bash anyone's work. I am simply trying to provide much needed files to the community. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Also, I may forget to keep this post updated so please check the downloads page on my website as it will always be maintained.

Changes---
*add host file to remove adds
*edited gps.conf for 'us' not 'north-america'
*added in tethering fix mentioned in other thread
*hex edited wifi driver enabling wireless N
*Removed thinkfree.apk

Added startup script /system/etc/startup.sh
*increased cache to /mnt/sdcard (not sure if this helps in our case but it does on most devices)
*Lagfix for ext4 (this would be better if integrated into the kernel)
*Auto installs flash 10.3 hacked with hulu support

======================
This needs testing
*I may have broke bluetooth
*wireless N
