    Then you pay more when you want to go back? If you have to troubleshoot at some point?

    All this stuff is very, very easy. Read the guides, twice, three times. All of them. Think it through. Use your head. Then ask questions if you're unclear. Nobody minds helping you out but we look down on people not willing to try and learn from all the resources available.

    +1 on both comments above.

    Using various guides and google I have been able to compile ICS from source and build my own ROM for my gnex. It wasn't that difficult, just take your time and double check your work.

    You need to learn how to do it yourself. The version of Jelly Bean that is out right now isn't even an official release yet -- not for anyone. It's only a developer preview, which means it's still buggy. What are you going to do when the official version is made open source?

    i rather pay.... need help:

    I wasted way to much time today. I'll give $20 bucks, paypal to someone that will call me and walk me through installing jellybean.

    I already rooted. I bought rom manager. I seem to be having a problem installing ClockworkMod recovery on my phone and getting a strange permissions error with rom manager.

    If you can help me but spending, hopefully no more then 20 minutes on the phone with me, I'd appreciate it! Google voice me at Kogan76@gmail.com or email me and I'll respond with my phone number.

    Please, no need to tell me what I'm doing wrong in this thread, I'd rather be walked through step by step and get this working and stop wasting my time....

    Thanks!

    He helps people unlock and root Nexus phones and charges them..? $50..? Next time you see this person can you kick him in the crotch and spit on his neck for me, please?

    Or refer his clientele to here, where they can receive assistance for nothing. The community here exists because we like this stuff and get satisfaction in helping others enjoy it. That's all.

    With that kind of rate, I hope he's providing lifetime tech support.

    There is someone on craiglist in my area that offers to root phones for $25 or so.. Not too bad of rate.. It's so much more fun doing it yourself. You understand what rooting really means, and have a better concept of the android system in general.

    I understand it is a "skill", but charging goes against the whole open source spirit in a big way imo.

    I have never bricked my phones. On a major noob and feel fine trying anything with android phones. The Android community is one of the beat out. They will help you if you run in to issue of any kind. Wigs tool kit is the way to go( great for noons like us) Another thing is you need to get some idea on what to do if issues come up. I thought I was just going to root just for hotspot but I found that I love to change themes on my phone almost every week. Its great cause you can make the phone UI like any phone out even icrap (iPhone) There is so much to do its crazy. The support for this phone is big. Once you root you will never go back.
