    I was trying to root my nexus last night. But it get stuck at the abd part. I am thinking I don't have the proper drivers installed but I can't find the right ones. Anyone have a link

    What part are you stuck at? ADB is incredibly easy assuming you have the right drivers. Did you get a "waiting for device" message through the command prompt?

    Get the wugfresh toolkit. You can get drivers set up very easy. Its got a manual driver setup with easy to follow instructions

    When you type "adb devices" with your phone connected (with USB debugging on) what happens? If you see a serial number show up then reboot to bootloader and type "fastboot devices". If you see a serial number, you're good to go. If none of this works, I'll link you to a tutorial to get your drivers set up properly.
