    You looking to use ADB or oneclick method?

    Easiest method is of course Wug's toolkit.

    Currently used none. Would like to use Wugs if it's the fastest/easiest way. Could you please send a link to Wugs if possible.

    Wug's toolkit is definitely the easiest way then. Head over to the Nexus Dev section and you should find the toolkit there.
