    Default I need STEP BY STEP rooting instructions, please.

    I've been on the net all day searching on how to root my VZW GNex, and I can't. Does anyone have the ability to give me EVERY STEP, from BEGINNING to END, on how to root my phone? I use the IMM76K version. I feel about as ed as one can be, not to mention I've wasted an entire Sunday on nonsense......

    I'd like something current and with no bugs, preferrably. Many thanks to whomever can help me.

    Did you give this guide a try? It's pretty elaborate and descriptive.
    If you have any specific questions about it ask away.

    You posted a search engine. I've been on Google and YouTube all day. I am looking for a direct, step by step link.

    I tried Wugs. Couldn't get it. I came across like 5 different sets of instructions. Do you by chance have a link?

    Nope sorry it was last month when I used it. There may be an updated link over on xda if the ones here don't work.

    All of the guides we have should be applicable; did you read through them? There's even discussion in one of them regarding the new 4.0.4 Superuser.

    Wug's should have worked, and I really have no idea what it didn't. The only possible thing I can think of is (1) configuration errors, or (2) miscommunication.

    Here's CyberWarrior's EPIC Step-by-Step guide WITH pictures:

    [GUIDE] How To Unlock Bootloader and Root Verizon Galaxy Nexus

    The only hangup I can see is the requirement of having a new superuser.zip, which is found all over this place--check the MAC METHOD guide (the last few pages) for that. Zero neck walked a colleague through rooting and adapting that guide to 4.0.4.

    Again, the simplest method will be Wug's. Remember, with that you need to:

    1. Install and configure the drivers
    2. Make sure you're doing this for CDMA and NOT GSM GNexus
    3. Hit Unlock, follow the instructions on the screen
    4. Hit Root, follow the instructions on the screen


    It's considered a "one click" method; you click a button, maybe click a couple more, and within minutes you are rooted.

    I swear to Christ I've done all that. That's why I'm so damn frustrated. I can't identify the problem!

    If you have done all that there is little anyone can add because those links have everything you need. Wug's is nearest self explanatory as it can be. Can you at least point out where with Wug's it or you failed?

    Download that. Select #12 for your model (IMM76K). Then select #7 (one click that unlocks, roots, renames the recovery restore files, and flashes a custom recovery). You could, in theory, start at #4 and do 4, 5, and 6.

    If the drivers are configured, that should work. Follow the instructions in that thread and say a few Hail Mary's beforehand.

    Edit: I hope that this 20 minute gap of silence means you downloaded that and have run through it flawlessly . If you choose to start at #4 (rooting), be sure to do 4, 5 AND 6. All of those must be done. If the rename of recovery files isn't, you may wind up having to flash a custom recovery every time you want to use one unless you rename them yourself.

    OP, just out of curiosity, did you read my posts in your other thread? If you haven't, you should. If you have, have you gone to that forum and asked Wug for help? If not, that'd be the absolute first thing I'd do. He will literally walk you through the process.

    Sorry guys for not updating sooner. No luck. I had my wife try too. So far, we've used 2 lap tops with Windows 7 and a PC with XP. Drivers successfully installed (installed then 20 times). I push "12" then "7," and othing happens when I hit "7."

    I've YouTubed everything, Googled instructions, and I'm at a total loss. I gotta find someone who can do it for me. I just wish I knew someone lol. I even called Samsung to ask for their help and they shot me down.

    At this point I have no idea what's going wrong. These things are bullet proof, so it has to be something that downloaded incorrectly or some interface that isn't working.

    Did you try new USB cords? Do you have a Mac?
