    This thing is pretty awesome! Just can't get my root to take....

    Not sure what I'm doing wrong here- I am unlocked successfully, but can't capture root. Win7 btw. I've tried probably 10x now....

    Here's where I am currently...

    Attached image flashes for a quick second (long enough to cap the screen)-- says it can't "stat" 'su.zip': no such file or directory... then it says below that CWM has successfully flashed. On the last screen where it tells me to reboot into recovery mode, which gives me a partial reboot then it soft bricks with the little dead android image on the screen. Various times, same result.

    Any input would be welcome...


    Oh, and at some point, it tells me that drivers are not installed- but I can't read the full error because it flashes and disappears.... but this is right before it tells me I'm rooted and can't get that 'su.zip'.


    Ug, plz help- Rooted several devices now, not sure why this 'easy' root is killing me.

    Perhaps you have to reboot before the second process? I don't know. I haven't been able to d/l the app yet.

    The second process starts automatically and immediately after the first- no opp to reboot first- although I've rebooted phone and comp a handful of times each at this point... not sure what to do......

    If you are unlocked and can't get this to work do you have fastboot set up to work? If so go back to one of the older methods.

    Well, since its saying cwr is successfully flashed, can you access the bootloader > recovery to verify? If you do have cwr, use it to flash superuser as a zip.

    If your phone is in fastboot and hooked up to the CPU in the command prompt where your fastboot file is use the command
    Code (Text):
    1. fastboot devices
    if it shows your phone as connected you should be able to flash CWM in fastboot and then flash su.zip in recovery.

    not working for me either. I am trying to re-lock and it just says it's waiting for the device after it boots it into bootloader. hnmmmm.

    ^ Mine did that UNlocking for a while too- it ended up being one of the drivers... I forget the name, but it was the one with 'bootloader' in the title...reinstalled and it went right thru...

    i can't get it to dl, either. i've been trying all day, and it just craps out after a partial dl. the server must be getting slammed pretty hard.

    p.s. Steven, i hope you are enjoying your GNex!?! :)

    I did the above, and it DOES recognize my GN (series of #s followed by 'fastboot').........

    I'm sitting here in fastboot mode, my Q is---- how do I flash CWM while in fastboot?
