    I'm not Creaky, but in post 21 of this thread there is this link:

    [MAC METHOD] Root,Unroot & Unlock Your VZ Galaxy Nexus - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    This is the one that I used. Just download the linked folder to your desktop and follow the steps for "unroot". I googled the code for 4.0.1 and unzipped all the files and added them to the folder on the desktop. Make sure that the files are unzipped. Unrooted and locked in less than 20 mins. It might be tedious to retype the folder name, but it's easy or you can rename it. Regardless, just wait for the okay prompts in Terminal. I used the 4.0.1 base and allowed the GN to reboot and update itself to 4.0.2...no worries.

    Thanks.

    I just want to make sure I download the correct version. Is there a cdma version and a gmsa version??

    Is there a Mac version and and a PC version??

    Factory Images for Nexus Devices - Google Support for Nexus Phones and Flagship Devices - Google Code

    Here is the google code...yes there are cdma and gsm...use cdma

    I used the superboot method to root my phone that was in the beginning of this thread. To unroot, I used the steps in the provided link. It's for Mac (at least that's what I'm using a dell mini 10 hackbook running snow leopard). I downloaded the adb-fastboot folder described in the first part of the link and then followed the steps in unroot.

    looks ok to me, I just made sure that there were unzipped img files for the terminal prompts in the direction. If you unzipped all the files then dumped them in the folder created, you should be good to go...

    Thanks.

    Just started it out and it said no such file or directory on my first command.

    in your screen capture...third file from the bottom, is a zip file....unzip and take the contents and the rest of the img files in the folder and copy them to the adb-fastboot folder you created on your desktop.
