    what is the best way to unlock the bootloader and then install a custom ROM immedaitely? its been so long that i unlocked my phone and installed clockworkmod, I forgot what the steps were when I installed a ROM on my friend's stock Nexus. I ran into a few hiccups, but wanted to find out the most efficient way. Here's what I did.
    1. unlock bootloader.
    2. booted up phone, logged in with google account.
    3. installed rom manager, installed clockworkmod.
    4. installed root explorer and deleted the "recovery-from.boot.p" file cause i know i will restart a lot to install the ROM, Kernal, and new radio update.

    anyhow, after i unlocked the bootloader, i thought there was a direct way to install the ROM immediately. I thought i was able to push clockworkmod using some ADB commands in the past, but couldn't figure it out, so then i did it the long way above! anyone know of a more streamlined method?

    I would do it the same way you did. Don't try squeezing too many things in at once. The phone needs to reboot and time to settle in between flashes. You would also want to fully reboot after unlocking and rooting to make sure everything is working correctly before moving on to making a nandroid backup of the stock ROM. Once everything is working smoothly... then start flashing custom ROMs.

    No problem... it is possible the way you mentioned but I would boot up the phone first to make sure everything was working.

    Okay.. thanks for the info. Yea, I've read about a few people who did that and had success with it. I'll add it to the Troubleshooting section of the guide. Thanks.

    I've tried four times on MAC and each time it refuses to restart from the unlocked google screen. Terminals tells of root success using the ./fastboot boot boot.superboot.img command but ZERO luck finishing after that. Will try on PC later.

    Just unlocked/rooted...everything seemed to go successfully. It's now restoring my apps from market, but everything is downloading extremely slowly. Browser seems to work fine. Could I have messed something up?

    Edit: Finally got through the first app it was downloading (Where's My Water...btw, badass game) and now it seems to be going more quickly. WMW? was a wifi only DL...I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

    Edit 2: And now it's going slow again. When I did the unlock/root, I didn't have the driver file downloaded all the way (although when it did download I opened it and it said drivers were already installed or something similar) - could this be a cause? Or if the correct Samsung drivers had not been present, would the whole process have failed entirely?

    Sorry about the questions....first time rooter.

    Unlocked fine, however when I go to click install-superboot-windows, a command prompt opens, and says downloading boot.img... and just hangs there.

    I also see a blue prompt at the bottom of the phone "fastboot status - download 00467800"

    something going wrong?

    **edit: I seem to have corrected it... just scrolled and hit restart bootloader, then double-clicked install-superboot-windows again, and boom... Google unlock screen, we'll see where it goes...

    edit#2: All is fine, unlocked, rooted, nandroid made... now what to choose..

    Sorry if this has been covered already, but i have an issue with superuser permissions. I followed these instructions to the letter, but when an app tries to ask for superuser permissions, nothing happens, and the app assumes it is getting denied. Suggestions?

    I just listened to last night's podcast. Someone emailed a question about unlocking the bootloader. The general consensus of the guys was to "UNLOCK THE BOOTLOADER!!!!". My question is, why unlock the bootloader if you are not gonna root? What is the benefit?

    because when you find out how awesome this phone is.. and end up wanting to root it.. then you wouldn't have lost all of your pictures and media that's on your phone by unlocking the bootloader later on down the road..
