    Trouble unlocking and rooting my VZW Nexus!

    I can't seem to unlock the Boot loader. I installed the drivers but when it boots my phone into the boot loader my laptop can't find the phone. Question is can someone either post a link to the newest unlock/root method or pm it to me sorry if there is a thread for this already

    This has worked for a lot of folks: [ADB/FB/APX Driver] Universal Naked Driver Beta 0.5 - xda-developers

    Good luck.

    Are you stuck at "waiting for device"? The PDA Net drivers have helped some people get past that also if so.

    I'm sure it's just a driver issue. Wug has been steering people to this post to help with driver setup. If all else fails you could probably post in his thread for help. He's been real good about helping people.
