I have a Samsung Nexus S. I have erased recovery and boot pertitions using fastboot erase <partition> and when I do fastboot flashall -w it stops on

sending 'boot' (XXXX KB)...

What might be wrong?


I successfully managed to flashed my NS back to stock ROM. Please refer to my own answer below.

NOTE: attempting fastboot flash on ur device may cost you your data. So be careful

I figured out that I had an outdated Android SDK. I downloaded the latest one, and did:

fastboot flash boot

fastboot flash recovery

fastboot flash userdata

and in a couple of minutes I had the stock ROM up and running.
