    Ok, just had to restore back to stock to see if it fixed a DRM issue in Hulu+ but I wanted to keep root. Problem is, I have no busybox, can't install it using Superuser (can't gain root). Is it due to the 4.0.4 update?

    You need to flash CWM recovery (or install it) and then flash the new 4.0.4 superuser.

    OR, download Wug's Toolkit and go from there .

    OK, here's my issue. I rooted on 4.0.4, have the Super User app but keep getting an "Error occurred while attempting to run privileged commands" in ClockworkMod. I assume SU permissions aren't being granted properly.. I see there's a 4.0.4 zip for updated SU permissions and to flash it from recovery, but how can I do that if I dont have clockwork mod flashed?

    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here. I have unlocked the bootloader but, so far I've been unable to root the phone. Not sure what I'm missing.

    I had to replace my Galaxy Nexus due to a cracked screen, so I took the opportunity to follow the steps in the first posts to unlock and root the phone.

    The unlock part was easy enough, but I had a minor issue with my Win7 Pro laptop loading the device driver and had to do disconnect from the laptop, reboot the phone and do it again. Worked the second time.

    The root part also was straightforward after I re-read the instructions six time! Since everything else was PC based through a command prompt, I was thrown off by the first step to copy SU.ZIP to the phone! I kept looking on my laptop to figure out where I was supposed to save it - DUH!!!! :lol:

    After I got it rooted, I still wasn't sure it was rooted, because I kept looking under Security > Device Administrators, thinking something would be listed, but of course I should have looked for the Superuser app in the app drawer. Maybe this would be helpful to have in the instructions so the process can be verified.

    Thanks for the instructions - now I'm rooted and I'm off to see what damage I can do.

    I have a Verizon Galaxy Nexus, ICS 4.0.4. I followed Dmmarck's instructions just fine, until I got to the Rooting the 4.0.4 update.
    Then I hit a wall. I found out that I needed the Android SDK (Installing the SDK | Android Developers).
    I installed it on my Windows 7 PC, and ran the program, called Android SDK Manager. I made sure that The Android SDK Tools
    and the Android SDK Platform-tools were installed, and under Extras, the Google USB Driver was installed. I used an app on my phone,
    called WiFi File Explorer Pro to move the su.zip file from my PC to my phone. The WiFi File Explorer Pro app refers to the SD card location
    on the phone as "Internal Storage." The actual location on the phone for "Internal Storage" is: /mnt/sdcard/

    Then Dmmarck's instructions worked just fine. I have rooted my phone just fine, per the Root Check Pro app. Thank you Dmmarck!

    On top of the screen of the root explorer app you will see a grey box that says "Mount R/W".. You need to switch that to" R/O" so that to the left of the box it will say "mounted as read/write"... Now you should be able to make your changes to the file.. When done switch it back to" mounted as read only"

    This error occurs in recovery? You don't need to be rooted to use recovery.

    I'm just trying to figure out how to flash the new SU.zip for 4.04.
    I thought I was rooted, but I'm unable to flash CWM through ROM manager. I have a superuser icon and stuff. I just get the error while attempting to run privileged blah blah blah message.

    I'll just keep my questions to this thread? Don't want to keep going through PM and this. lol

    When I go into recovery via the bootloader, it takes me to a screen with an android and an exclamation point.

    Ok. You need to download a folder called r3 superboot and use that to flash. I posted a link to a guide from droidforums in the MAC method thread and there should be a zip here as well.

    So I followed the guide you posted near the end of that thread.
    I placed the CWM recovery image in the r3 folder, did the terminal commands, etc.
    Was able to use CWM recovery to install the new SU.zip.
    Went into rom manager and I was able to flash CWM successfully.

    At the end of the guide you posted you said something about renaming a file or something rather? Do I need to do that even though I was able to flash CWM through Rom manager, or am I finally good to go and can start installing my jelly bean goodness? Thanks for the help man, you are truly awesome.
