Re: broken recovery console in ICS MR1 xkcdcode Wed Feb 22 08:01:30 2012


I am basically having this exact problem while trying to update my
Google Nexus S to ICS 4.0.3 to fix the in call volume problem. The
exact error I get is:-

Verifying current system...
assert failed: apply_patch_space(15428056)
E:Error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip
(Status 7)
Installation aborted.

How can I fix this please? Thanks.
