    I used the superboot and it worked so maybe that's what is giving you a problem, try it and report back if it worked or not.

    Nevermind... apparently it worked and gave me SU without getting past the Google logo. Did a battery pull and superuser worked. Very strange.

    Maybe it's only because it's what I know, but I'm much more partial to SPRecovery than Clockwork... any reason why it seems like CWM gets so much more support and attention and it seems like SPR has faded out of use?

    I'm trying to unlock the bootloader on my shiny new LTE Galaxy Nexus

    I tried the steps in the Droidlife post here: Video: How to Unlock the Bootloader on the Galaxy Nexus [Verizon] – Droid LifeEvery time I get to the bootloader and type "fastboot oem unlock" I just get the message "< waiting for device > in the CMD prompt, and nothing every happens.

    Any ideas? I have the update 4.02 already, maybe that's an issue?

    Assuming you've installed the samsung drivers:

    When you are in the bootloader go to device manager and choose the unrecognized device and install the samsung adb composte drivers by browsing for device and choosing Samsung as the manufacturer.

    More options maybe? Rzrecovery is best but not available on all devices...it basically combines cwm and sprecovery plus more
