    I'm still kinda new to rooting, and everything, but I'm curious, with the Nexus, do you lose root when the new OTAs come out? I thought I've heard that with other phones, OTAs cause the user to lose root if downloaded. But, since the Nexus is a "developer's phone", I'm wondering if Google's OTAs are set up so that the user doesn't lose root access?

    Alright I guess the drivers were installed all along now I'm just sitin at the google window time to wait

    Edit: YEAHHH!!!! IT WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!!! I guess the big thing is having the drivers installed and not pulling the battery. Also if u put in cmd ....abd devices it will not tell you at least in my situation it didn't

    I'm having trouble getting to step 9.

    Is there something you must do at step 8 to get the screen with the green dude?

    This is my first andriod phone ever and first time rooting.

    So if I'm missing something please let me know.

    Also, what do I do with that usb_drivers folder?




    I figured it all out.

    Got it rooted successfully.

    Thanks for the guide.

    I suggest adding more details regarding what to do with the drivers and confirming that they are installed properly.

    Turn the phone off. Hold down the volume up and down keys together. Make sure theyre both pressed down together.... then also add the power button to the mix.. so that you have the volume up, down and power all pushed together.... release when you see the green robot.

    I was prepared for the worst -- or at the very least some driver wrangling and waiting on reboots -- but nope: flawless unlock/root process in about 5 minutes total. (Ignoring the extra 5 minutes for the final reboot.)

    Thanks for posting this up!


    Edit to add:

    This is only my second time rooting a device, the first being a Bionic I returned, so I'm still pretty much a noob at this. I had more issues getting the Bionic drivers working correctly. With the Nexus I just pointed the orphan "Galaxy" entry in Device Manager to the USB driver folder and it picked it up immediately, no fuss whatsoever. The Bionic also had to go through a 3 or 4-stage root process, with manual input and slow reboots between each. The GN took about 5 seconds of actual processing time to do its stuff, the rest of the 5 minute process was me downloading, unzipping, and running the shell commands. Altogether a really painless process.

    Everytime I get to the last Command Prompt, It always says waiting for device. I dont get it. I have the Samsung Drivers installed, USB installed and did everything else. When I notice that I plug the usb in before I put the phone in fastboot mode, It makes the studder step sound of the USB inserted on the computer. Instead of the full Sound a USB connection makes. Can anyone help me with this?
    i get this too i have done all i can to try to get it to work but no go anyone out there know what i can do to fix it.

    I cannot get the USB drivers installed. I plug the phone into the computer, it says the OMAP driver is not installed, but doesn't give me the option to install it. I go to device mgr and it doesn't show up in the list. i'm stumped...

    *edit

    I worked it out.

    I had this happen this morning...tried for hours to fix. Tried all kinds of stuff. Reloaded the drivers 50 times.

    This worked for me...open your device manager and you will see your phone in the list...expand it to see samsung adb something...forget what it says exactly.
    Anyway double click or right click and choose to install driver from there.

    Awesome, this worked perfectly using win7 x64. Like the previous posters say, the whole process takes about 5 minutes, including time to reboot out of the Google screen after you root.

    Some tips from my experience:
    • Seems like you only need super boot and the usb drivers file found in op.
    • When I booted into fast boot, I opened device manager as suggested on first page and manually installed usb drivers file (got the warning from win 7 about installing it and bypassed)
    • Next, I unlocked the bootloader, then rooted.
    • Afterwards, it goes to the Google black screen. I left the usb cable plugged into the phone and held down the power button for about 10 seconds.
    • After that, nothing happens and it stays on the screen, but if you wait a few minutes, it will reboot on it's own and go into the initial startup.


    For normal Windows usage, I installed the updated Samsung driver that's mentioned by Greydarrah in an earlier post in this thread.
    Samsung

    Thanks a bunch for the great guide and good luck in rooting ~ Cheers!

    Let it load from your comp. Get the usb driver dl from the op...not the samsung one.

    Just point it to the usb driver folder.

    I copied the files and pasted in the "c drive in a folder I made called root",,,,the file icons doesnt look exactly like the one in the OP dont really know why (should they ?)
    Im on windows Xp but the file sizes are the same .

    When I get into bootloader I look at device manager and see no errors it looks like the picture in the Samsung driver link .

    I open command prompt and in command prompt it shows:
    C:\ Documents and Settings\Administrators>

    when I type cd C:/ the next line that pops up is as the same as first line :
    so its :C:\ Documents and Settings\Administrators>
    and if I type :
    cd root it says path not found so Im doing something wrong in command prompt I think

    Maybe try moving the root file you created to C:/Documents and settings/Admin location and see if that works. I'm not sure why your command prompt would take you there

    Like Mclarryjr said.... the path should be C:/root .....it shouldnt be in documents and settings.
