    If you have an unlocked bootloader that is a good start. In order to root your phone I would consult this thread here:

    [MAC METHOD] Root,Unroot & Unlock Your VZ Galaxy Nexus

    Lots of great info can be found there and just do some searching as to whether or not you want a custom ROM with the new radios or just the radios themselves.

    Mac's are not my expertise, I did mine on a Windows PC so I can't be much more help to you from there. I am sure someone else with a Mac will chime in.

    I cant root it, there are not many good guides at there to help. I feel like the guides assume too much. I really need something that tells me exactly what to do. Anyone help? Please

    Ok the part you are stuck at is where it says "cd" to where you extracted that file??

    I can help you tell me where you're stuck.


    Another thing - you want to be running a rooted version of 4.04 or you just want the stock 4.04 experience?

    to do either really we can just flash clockworkmod recovery to the device (manually, with ADB and commands).

    if you root first, you can download Rom Manager app from the market and use that app to flash recovery.

    ---- or in the alternative, i can get you just the radios and you don't have to root but you will have to use ADB to install them without root.

    or you can use ODIN to update to 4.04 stock, but that will be the most complicated for you, i would gather.

    So, let me know what you feel like doing.

    ok i assume you have adb set up, because thats how you unlocked the bootloader (thru terminal commands), right?

    download this: this is the recovery img

    http://download.clockworkmod.com/rec...8.0.2-toro.img

    when you've got it downloaded, rename the file
    recovery.img
    just for convenience sake.

    you're going to put that file, recovery.img, into the adb-fastboot folder.

    then you're going to open up the terminal.

    whereever the adb-fastboot folder is, you need to "open that" (cd) with terminal commands.

    for example, the adb-fastboot folder is on the desktop. so:

    cd desktop (press enter)

    cd adb-fastboot (press enter)

    ok so the file is in the adb-fastboot folder right?

    and you are in terminal - you have cd adb-fastboot so that you are in that folder right?


    now, make sure you have USB DEBUGGING checked on on your device, and connect it via usb to the computer.

    now turn off your phone, and turn it back on by holding ALL THREE together: Vol up, Vol down, and power - keep them pressed until you get to fastboot mode


    phone should say start with android on his back btw
