    More options maybe? Rzrecovery is best but not available on all devices...it basically combines cwm and sprecovery plus more

    That worked!

    I tried the steps in the Droidlife post here: Video: How to Unlock the Bootloader on the Galaxy Nexus [Verizon] – Droid LifeEvery time I get to the bootloader and type "fastboot oem unlock" I just get the message "< waiting for device > in the CMD prompt, and nothing every happens.

    Any ideas? I have the update 4.02 already, maybe that's an issue?
    I wet though the steps and had a few probs but I got it on the second try. During the install of adb driver for x64 in windows it installed the driver and asked me to plug in the phone to have windows install something. I plugged it in while it was on (not in the BL) and it made me cancel and then it said uninstalling. No big deal I kept going. I then powered off the phone. i already had the folder containing the files i needed downloaded and ready to go. Then I opened command as an Administrator. typed commands and the first time it said waiting for device. I plugged in my phone and windows tried to install a driver automatically but failed. I restarted my phone and tried again and it worked.

    Try to restart the PC and the phone. then try again.

    EDIT: is there a delete button for posts? lol I am not doing well today on DF lol

    These instructions worked like a charm. Within 4 minutes of having this thing plugged in I was on my way to having it rooted and five minutes later the girlfriend called me a huge nerd because I told her it was unlocked and I had root access. Huge nerd? Yep. Happy as all get out to have this device and have it set up as MINE. Absolutely!

    Cheers guys, can't wait for the flood of dev support.

    I imagine you would replace "unlock" with "lock" in step 7

    Instructions worked perfect on my Verizon Nexus. Updated to latest os 4.0.2 then used the phone for an hour or so. Followed instructions to the T and it worked. It really does take about 4-5 minutes to boot after the root so just WAIT and be patient! I also want to make sure people remember to make sure your battery is not low before you start! Always have a decent amount of battery before doing these things. Also it wipes your phone! So dont do to much setup/config before you root/unlock it or your wasting your time!

    This was the key for me after installing the new samsung drivers (which for some reason took about an hour on my computer) once I rebooted into the bootloader my computer was no longer recognizing the device. I had to go into the device manager and find the driver from the list of samsung drivers as described above. After that I just followed the instructions and was done it about 4 minutes! Thanks to OP an Natolx!

    Edit: I had updated to 4.0.2 BEFORE doing all this and everything worked fine.

    I updated mine right out the box and no problems with it.
