Google Galaxy Nexus developed by Samsung is yet the new name under the Google Nexus flagship. As we wrote earlier about the specifications, release and price of this great device, this device is about to hit the complete global market anytime soon. It is a normal story that roots are available for devices which are not even available in consumer market. Developers have been working hard to crack around the codes for even better development. And finally there is a root available for the first Android 4.0, Ice cream Sandwich running device.

Root Google / Samsung Nexus

2. Turn your device off. Press ‘Volume Up‘ and ‘Volume Down‘ together to enter boot loader.

3. Double click ‘install-superboot-windows.bat’ (WINDOWS only).

‘./install-superboot-mac.sh’

Unlock Boot Loader

Before rooting, unlocking of device is a must. Backup everything before unlocking your device because it wipes off the phone. If you have a retail version of Galaxy Nexus, unlock the boot loader. Connect your device via USB cable, have the Samsung drivers installed and in cmd / terminal mode  type ‘./fastboot-windows oem unlock’.
