    Yes.. or you can delete them.. either way, they won't be used.
    I have a problems with the program, an where say ,select yes on the device "device does not seem this option", I'm using windows 7, and also asked whether the nexus is connected before opening the toolkit root or first open deve in program after connecting the nexus, in normal mode or reeboot...

    I'm a little disappointed with this program. Yes, it rooted my GNex just fine. But it erased everything.
    When the bootloader is unlocked, it wipes the device. That's why AC mentioned that unlocking the bootloader should be the first thing you do with the device since it wipes it.

    I'm a little pissed actually because I just feel it would have been too easy to have something pop up as a warning. And it should have popped up a few times just in case
    I agree they could have a popup in the program, but it is listed clearly in the post for the program that it will wipe your device ...

    Just finished building my Bootcamp partiton on my MBP so I can now get rolling on rooting and other fun things for both my Galaxy Nexus and Evo View.

    Is there a root/ unlock method that doesn't wipe the phone, yet? I really don't want to root my Nexus, but one thing I'd like to do is be able to transfer over my save data from my games that I started playing on my old phone, and I don't believe there's any way for me to do this on stock. I'd like to be able to just root, restore my save data, then go back to completely stock. But, I'm guessing unlocking/ rooting still wipes data, huh?

    I am rooted but I cannot access the /system/apps folder to add an apk.
    I get this error message "libcore.io.ErnoException: open failed: EROFS (read-only file system)"
    Anyone have any ideas on the issue? I am somewhat of a newb.

    Thanks in advance.

    You need Read/Write permissions.
    If you're using Root Explorer...you need to change the R/W grey box on the top right hand of the screen to R/O... then install the apk... and when done change back so that it shows R/W again.

    I'm having problems like some other people. My device isn't being detected by the program. I followed step 5 but when you get to samsung phone and select it it says there are no drivers available. Any help would be appreciated. I'm using WinXP. Also what are these files under so I can try to remove them then reinstall program.
    Thanks

    no need for OTA updates with this phone. Google provides everything you need. With no carrier/manufacturer mods to this NEXUS device the OTA's should be identical to what you can get direct from Google.

    Thank you so much. I was trying to do this manually for a week straight and couldn't get the root to work. Little tinkering and retrying with this and it worked like a charm. Please donate to keep this kind of stuff coming!

    Having the exact same issue. I've been unlocked since day 1 but can't get it to clockworkmod recovery, just the red arrow droid. And I can't delete the recovery-from-boot in root explorer because...I'm not rooted. Help?

    I'm having the same issue. It reboots into recovery, but it just hangs there on "Start." There is no option to root/unlock/etc.
