    Thanks OP! Had the phone for two days and on my second android phone. This by far was the easiest, fastest, method and also worked on the first time around! DancingNexus

    Just ordered my Galaxy Nexus through wirefly. Gonna root this sucker once she arrives. FWIW, still rocking a rooted D1 since day 1. Wondering, if I root and run wireless tether, will Verizon see my data usage and charge me? I'm still on the ole unlimited plan btw. :happy3:

    Pdanet won't install, says driver installation failed. I'm getting all kinds of failed driver problems with this phone and these drivers.

    Any ideas?

    Uninstall what you have, download everything again. Basically start over from scratch. I had similar issues and changed computers, no problem. Go figure.

    Nevermind, I somehow cleared the issues out. EDIT: thanks jlee

    For others who have this problem:
    -go to my computer
    -right click>properties>device manager
    -find your phone in the list, should have some sort of error icon on it
    -uninstall the errored deviced
    -unplug nad replug your phone in
    -drivers should install normally as "samsung adb"


    Hopefully that helps anyone with the same problem.

    I'm trying to help someone with this method through gtalk. We "think" all the drivers are installed, but at the point where they go to unlock it, they get this, "fastboot-windows is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file". I didnt have this problem so it has us stumped. Anyone get this & figure out why?

    i dont know but guessing i would ask if you put the correct commands in the "path", i also saw where java needed to be in there so mine looks like this

    C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_02\bin\;C:\android-sdk\platform-tools;C:\android-sdk\tools

    Ok, thanks. They just restarted their computer to see if that would help. I'm thinking the drivers didnt get installed. They're tryng it again now. Guess we'll see.

    Thats what I was thinking too. They tried restarting their pc before we got to that. Probably try that next. Thanks bweN.
