    Default Re: [Automated] Wug's Galaxy Nexus Root Toolkit

    OK, back on 4.1.1 stock rooted Gnex. Still having trouble with the tool kit. Try to do a backup of apps. Wug dialogue says waiting for finish reboot and says to unlock screen and some back up choice will appear on my screen. I unlock the screen the instant the unlock ring appears. All that shows up is my regular launcher screen. So can't do a backup that way. If I try to do a Nandroid the whole thing gets to the TWRP (Install, Wipe, BAckup, Restore, Mount, etc.) screen where it hangs forever. Dialogue on Wugs says waiting for backup to finish and for your device to boot back up--which never happens. Using TWRP 2.3.2.1 and wugs 1.6.1

    Finally got a Nanny to run. Had to be careful not to select "Recovery", "Android Secure" nor "SD-ext" Backup finished. OK, but where did the backup file go? I thought I had the default into WUGS Development but can't find the file there. Is that where it defaults to?

    OK, all the backups are on the phone, event though I thought WUGS pulled them to the computer. Anyway, I had to restore one of the Nandroids tonight so-----whew!
    Is the only way to get them to the computer copy / paste or drag in Windows?

    Hello. I'm sorry to be so urgent, but I have to return my galaxy nexus on warranty within the next day or two. Here is the situation: I have installed all of the drivers and am able to temporarily unroot and lock via supersu and bootunlocker and then reroot and reunlock using the wug's toolkit. The problem is that I am unable to get the toolkit to flash the stock rom and fully unroot for me. It will start and then it will pop-up "booting up your freshly stock device" without actually flashing anything. I'm in a bind and any help would be greatly appreciated.

    First of all, thanks Wug for creating this. I followed your work when I had my Droid X and I'm very glad to see you're doing work with the GNex.

    Ok now for my question. I followed the directions and successfully confirmed all the drivers are correct, and got my Nexus unlocked without a hitch. However, now that I'm trying to root, every time I click the "root" button it tells me "There is currently no TWRP recovery and the toolkit would like to download it. When I hit OK I get an error message saying "Windows cannot find nexwug_DL_NRTfiles.exe" and asks me to make sure I typed the files correctly and try again. Then nothing happens after this. I currently cannot root, which as we all know is the whole reason for this process anyway to flash custom ROMs.

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. I've been waiting for about a month or two to have enough time to do this and now I'm at a dead end. Thank you in advance.

    EDIT: Found out it was my antivirus that had parts of the toolkit quarantined. Root successful

    I used wugs toolkit 1.6 to unlock and root my Gnex. Worked great! Only problems are: tried to do a nandroid, the toolkit was downloading something then said hash check failed. Tried again, same thing. Also cannot boot into recovery with phone disconnected from pc. Can boot into bootloader (volume up and down and power), then when I select recovery it goes to the android on it's back with the red exclamation and hangs for a couple minutes before just booting into regular. Where do I start? On 4.1.1

    Edit: Also during install I realized that I did not have usb debugging enabled, therefore the zip files did not get created in the directory for rooting as the toolkit directed me to during the rooting process. I had to create the directories myself and move the zips there. Then I went into bootloader, used the toolkit, and did the root process. Worked fine. Wondering if because of the usb debugging not being enabled something else didn't get transferred to the phone for recovery. Like I said it seems to work fine when plugged into the pc with the toolkit, goes into TWRP, just not unplugged.

    Default Re: [Automated] Wug's Galaxy Nexus Root Toolkit

    Need some help using the push and pull files/ folders features. Program is asking for path name on phone. I am hazy as to where (subfolders, etc. ) files best should be put on the phone or how to specify it. Example: I have some Word and Excel files that keep getting lost in the various backups. They just don't seem get backed up for some reason using Titanium. Titanium doesn't list them that I can find. When I do a wipe and restore the files are gone. Windows 7 windows explorer is a complete disaster for transferring files for backup because it hangs up all the time. So thought I would use Wugs. I use "OfficeSuite" as my usual app for these word and excel files but use other apps for these files as well. I have these files in a folder with my name but don't know whether to just put the folder in /sdcard or to put them in the same folder as "OfficeSuite". TTTT, I can't even find the folder the app is in.

    Used this to root my nexus 7 and it was very easy! Thank you. I'm just wondering can I see the flash stock method to get back to stock kernel? I updated to Motleys kernel and didn't do a backup before updating as I am a total noon to the nexus 7 stuff. Is there a way for me to go back to stock kernel 4.2.1?

    Download the factory image package for your device from Google:
    https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images

    Unzip it completely with a program like 7zip until you see the file "boot.img". Flash this IMG file with the toolkits advanced utilities permanent flash to boot button. That will restore the stock kernel.

    Yes, flashing stock would also restore it, but it will wipe everything and bring your device back to complete stock. To just restore the stock kernel while leaving your data untouched follow the instructions I provided.

    You could also Google search for a flashable zip file that contains just the stock kernel and flash that in recovery or with the toolkits flash zips button.

    I'm having the same problem too.

    I assume you would have to go to click "install" and then locate the .zip yourself, but I'm not sure where it gets put.

    EDIT: There's a zip in /cache, but I don't have the heart to try it. Named "c01f18e07f87.signed-nakasi-JOP40D-fromJZO54.co1f18e0(...)". I'll wait for someone to fix this bug before I break something.

    i have a question about the 'push' feature. I pulled the build.prop file from my nexus 4, made some changes and tried to push it back, but when i repulled the file the changes weren't made. i double checked to see if i did in fact push the altered file and i did. I was wondering why it might not be saving the changes? perhaps i can't overwrite a file with push?

    Thanks so much to Wug for creating this. I had never rooted my phone before, and this made it very simple. Now running 4.2 on my GNex without waiting for big red to get the stick out of thier backside.

    I tried out CyanogenMod first, but was not impressed. I am now running Paranoid Android 3.0 and its awesome. Been running it about a week now, and have noticed little to no glitches. The PIE feature within Paranoid is probably my favorite part of it.
