Hey, So I have a couple questions... Currently I have an OG Droid running CM 7.1 and love it. The reason I installed CM was because my phone was just so slow and CM 7.1 sped it up a lot. I also wanted to have the latest and greatest gingerbread I could have on it... Now my question is with this Galaxy Nexus... 1 - should I unlock the bootloader if I don't plan on ROMing, at least initially. If so why? If I unlock it, I know it wipes the phone to factory defaults, will I need to re-activate it w/ verizon? 2 - I was under the impression I would not need to really use custom ROMs because I would be getting the latest and greatest updates directly from google anyways... perhaps some people just like to ROM for fun? 3 - If I unlock the bootloader and do not root I understand that I can still get OTA updates just fine, however if I root as well, there may be an issue w/ recieving OTA updates? Why unlock the bootloader if you're not going to root? The only reason I root is to use wifi-tether and titanium backup. Sorry for the "silly" questions, I was just looking form some clarity. I am very excited to get this phone but have not owned a nexus phone before. My only 2 smart phones i've had are the Droid Eris and OG Droid.
