    after being a long time droid user i'm finally migrating to the galaxy nexus ... been looking around at how to root the g-nex, i can do the manual method but this toolkit looks like an all-in-one bootloader unlock and root. does this toolkit do the same thing as what's described in the superuser guide ? :

    How to Unlock Bootloader and Root Galaxy Nexus [Windows] - The SuperUser's Guide

    i have a few questions about the toolkit, does it install the correct and latest samsung drivers (in initial setup) or do i have to dl the drivers separately ? also, when i root, should i or shouldn't i select permanent cwm ? if i don't, would i be able to install Rom Manager once i've rooted and booted up the phone ? as for the flashing back to stock and relocking, would it work if i had rooted + permanent cwm ? last question, will this toolkit work with Android 4.0.4 as well as 4.1 ?

    i'm not looking to rom the phone, just unlock and root it while running vanilla android.

    sorry for all the questions, the g-nex is a different animal and rooting is different compared to the methods i used on the droid/droid 2/droid X.

    so i gather this thread's not a high priority to you guys ....

    anyway i messed with the toolkit and i like it. i like how i don't need to install cwm recovery and i can still boot into it using the temp cwm recovery option .... that way i can backup my phone the way i'm used to, then save the backup on my pc later ....

    Hey. I am sorry that I missed your questions. It's just me working on this so it's hard to keep up with all the forums. I am releasing v1.5 tonight, so if that version doesn't answer your questions I will be happy to help you out.

    the current ver. seems to work fine ...
    no need to apologize, this toolkit is awesome, i'm def. donating to keep it alive.

    so i unlocked, rooted without cwm, and used the temp cwm to do a backup. i have ota rootkeeper, ill use that wen 4.1 hits the airwaves to preserve root.

    can i use the toolkit to boot into temp cwm after i reroot on 4.1, then do an advanced restore to get my settings/layout back to the way i had it ?

    i'm assuming the update will restore the phone to factory new settings ....

    You could boot into clockwork and flash that. Or replace the su.zip that is currently in the package with that one and run through the root process again.

    It resides here:
    %HOMEDRIVE%\Wugs_GnexRootToolkit\data\su.zip

    Version 1.4 of my program will include this... but for now, the above solution will work.

    I just tried Version 1.4 and it did not root the phone (running 4.0.4). I was going to try and push su again through your post I quoted, however, I don't see data\su.zip so I didn't want to keep trying that set of instructions. Any suggestions?



    EDIT: Re-running the "root" script seemed to have worked, for some reason it didn't work the first time, but worked fine the 2nd time!

    THANKS!!!!

    - Pretty sure you need to hold both both the down and the up volume buttons, not just the down volume button. So volume up + volume down + power.
