    Exactly that...where is the official 4.0.4 update for LTE? I know the zip is out there but I don't plan on unlocking or rooting til I get the official update.

    Why the delay? Is it Google or Verizon?

    Official isn't out yet.... I unlocked rooted and installed unofficial one.. wugs root kit makes it easy.. then when official comes out you can use the root kit to go back to stock and update ota. Not sure if its Verizon or Google.

    Official isn't out. You'll definitely see a thread here once it's out. It's a Google update, but could very well be a delay because of Verizon. Who knows.

    People have told me its so simple to unlock and root Android devices. I SERIOUSLY plan to do so with my Gnex. I'm just worried.
    In the 4+ years I've had a rootable device but I've always thought it'd be just my luck to turn my phone into a paperweight.
    I've been seeing Wugs Toolkit pop up on many forums so I'm assuming this is a reliable and simple method..?
    I'm a n00b when it comes to unlocking and rooting (obviously) so bear with me.
    Also, does rooting slow down the phone (i.e. swiping from home pages, scrolling the app drawer, adding/removing widgets/apps..) like the "jailbreaks" do for iPhones?

    You can't brick a Nexus device. Or most devices for that matter. Just follow directions carefully and you will be fine. In no means does rooting your phone make it any slower. It simply gives you administrator access to all aspects of your phone's software. If anything rooting simply enables you to make your device faster and more battery efficient.

    I've heard that too. I'll give it a whirl then. Doing so will wipe the phone though, yes? Anyway around this or do I have to back everything up myself?
    And what's the best method to use for unlocking and rooting?

    The Wug system that you mentioned should work just fine. Give'r a go!
