    Hi WugFresh, everything went perfectly with your tool thanks for that!

    I only have a small issue with Superuser and hope you can help me. Basically the app is supposed to grant root access however I have never received a prompt and when opening Superuser there are no apps in the list. Apps that require root access such as privacy guard report that the phone isn't rooted. Then I installed Busybox and there is this error message while installing it:
    /system/xbin/ could not be mounted as RW, the install may fail
    and after that the install isn't successful. Can you suggest how to grant root access for apps?

    You should repeat the entire root process. Maybe superuser didn't flash correctly.

    USB does not have to remain checked... just remember to turn it back on if you ever have to connect your phone to the computer.

    OTA updates... from past experiences.. will unroot you if you accept it. Two ways to fix so that doesn't happen.... install a custom ROM (don't understand why someone wouldn't... its the best part of having a rooted phone) or you can try and delete the update file in your systems files using Root Explorer... (not sure what the file name is called at the moment)... either way... its not guaranteed.

    Best way to avoid the OTA update... install a custom ROM... problem solved + you'll most likely be running a leaked version of any update weeks before its released. The majority of the custom ROMs right now are running ICS 4.0.3... stock is still 4.0.2.

    If you decide to stay stock rooted... don't be surprised when an OTA comes rolling along and messes with your phone.
    Thanks Cyber! What's the most stable rom out right now?

    Codename and AOKP (android open kang project) are the two most popular. My vote goes to Codename though... great rom with a lot of built in settings for modding/customizing the phone.

    Thanks, so only AOSP Rom's can be used on the verizon version of nexus versus GSM rom's?

    do you only have to install the drivers once?

    or is this a step you have to take each time you unlock/root a new phone

    Drivers are device specific. So no. Once you configure the drivers this should work on any Gnex.

    if device is not recognized in device manager, doing an update or reinstalling drivers might work but majority of the time wont.

    Heres what I did, -unplug phone. 1) download installer_r16-windows and run - when installing I only selected the usb drivers. 2) download jdk-7u2-windows-x64 and run 3) reboot PC

    Hello sir! when running the final steps for the root process, everything else worked like a charm...when the command prompts open to rename the file to make clockwork permanent, i was getting a unable to process command on every command..and then the windows dissapeared before I could make any logs or notes...

    should I re run the root process? Or is there a way that I can manually run those commands at the end of the root process?

    My command prompt was defaulting to my network drives... I made the command prompt open the c:\sdk folder instead and it seemed to of worked..

    installed clockwork recovery via rom manager and making a backup now..

    Im guessing it worked?!

    I've got a problem. When I try to do a backup, I go through all the steps until I get to the point where I need to confirm the backup on my phone itself, but nothing ever comes up. When I try to go ahead with the back up it finishes but no backup is made.

    In the Wug's Fresh Toolkit it has a "Boot/Flash Image" title and then below that it has "Partition to flash to"

    If I'm flashing a ROM (codename) for the first time on a newly rooted GN, what partition do I choose?

    +1 for helping a noob.

    I tried to update the drivers, but I experienced an error. Windows Vista says, "Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it.
    Samsung Android ADB Interface
    This device cannot start (code 10)"

    What should I do?

    Nevermind. I figured out by myself. Just tried it one more time after rebooting.

    That was my fault, I made a slight mistake in that script. It tries to rename recover-from-boot.p to recover-from-boot.p.bak instead of recovery-from-boot.p. Missed a "y". Will fix in version 1.3. Just rename it manually with Root Explorer after rooting and reflashing CWM with ROM manager. The file resides in the /system directory and needs to be deleted or renamed in order to have permanent clockworkmod recovery.

    I will also make this output to a log file next time.

    Sometimes ROMs contain imgs that flash to multiple partitions. That is why they are often packaged as a zip file. Just flash the zip in clockworkmod recovery. If its just a single img file, then flash it to system with my toolkit.

    Make sure to run the initial SDK+Files and configure your drivers first

    No. Just plug it in when the program tells you to in a powered on state. My program will take care of the rest.
