I greatly appreciate how simple and straightforward you made this. Including pictures and ALL of the Terminal interactions was extremely helpful. I didn't have any issues, and it got through the Google lock screen in under a minute.

    As others may have said, Terminal looks a little different in 10.7 than in 10.4, but that's mainly just because it uses a $ instead of a %. [Or maybe that's something related to how my computer is set up.] Lion users may have trouble with the Home directory, though, since it's hidden by default. If they're trying to do this, though, they can figure it out.

    Anyway, thank you for this guide. I hope others find it as useful as I did.
    You are most welcome! I'm really glad you found it helpful.

    And thanks for mentioning the terminal differences - I'm not on 10.7 so I can't check it myself.

    Ok...so you're in terminal and you have changed directory (cd). You put the folder in your home directory like in the steps of the tutorial.

    When you type are you typing:

    cd r3-galaxynexus-superboot ./fastboot-mac oem unlock

    Or

    cd r3-galaxynexus-superboot

    It should be the first ....
