Im having trouble getting root. The bootloader is unlocked, that went well. However, when enter chmod +x install...etc... I get the no such file or directory... I know that the extracted folder is in my user account so Im kind of stuck. Thanks for any and all help with this
chmod +x install-superboot-mac.sh" (without the quotes) or just type cd, hit the space bar and drag and drop the folder in your terminal window. Just make sure there is a space between "cd" and your folder name. Hope that helps.
Ummm HELP..... Stuck in bootloop on step 18. Root seemed to go well since I go:
downloading 'boot.img'... OKAY
I'm going to go back and try again from scratch.
Well it won't unlock it twice, LOL... Same results, stuck in a boot loop. Anybody wanna buy a Samsung Galaxy Nexus BRICK?
UPDATE #2: I found an article where it stated to re-lock the bootloader and start over from there. That worked and am now up and running all my apps are restoring and I am rooted.

ok, followed the steps and I am rooted and unlocked...pretty straightforward.
What happens if I need to return the phone? Is there a way to go back to stock? Sorry for tje n00b question.

Well, I bricked it again.
Stated a new thread for any help that can be given.
Unlocked and rooted hangs during boot
Would it be possible to change step 15 to copy an image to the GNex where it would take off and install that? Grasping for anything right now.

I don't know about doing this with a Mac but anyone who has experience, please post!
Thanks for write up and links. All went well. It's been awhile since I rooted my original Droid the day I got it. Rom manager has done everything since it first came out. Now just waiting for CM9 stable.
