    Thanks for the step by step instructions. Worked (almost) perfectly. Installed the Samsung driver on my computer successfully but when I got to the step (#11) to verify the Android 1.0 driver was installed I got an error that said it wasn't. I followed the instructions earlier in this thread, successfully installed the driver, and from that point everything went perfectly. Thanks, again.

    Thank you sir! And thank you for the clarification. I was already on 4.0.2 when I rooted and posted. I thoight at first, "Wow! That was fast! People weren't kidding, I guess, about getting fast updates on these things!"

    But it is nice to onow that the bootloader should stay unlocked after taking an OTA. Thanks, bro!

    Oh gee... I just got the GN yesterday and today I find it roots and unlocks the bootloader using my old-high-schoo-but-now-current nickname? Heck yes!!! Superboot will definitely use superboot to unlock his Nexus!!!

    Please be more clear. Are you stuck at step 17?

    If so, are you getting a "waiting on device" message in the command prompt?

    Could be a corrupt download. Redownload the superboot file and try again.
