    Hey everyone, a quick bit of news - I was able to download an apk of HBO GO and was actually able to install it on the GNex; however, when opened, the application showed a pop-up saying "This application is not compatible with this device" before closing. So close, yet so far. :(

    HELP!!!!!

    Possible premature celebration - toolkit says I'm rooted. Superuser and ROM Manager say I'm not. Is this that issue where the stock recovery is overwriting the custom recovery?

    If yes - how do I fix it?

    Was it easy? Truly one click (or two)? Any bumps in the road?

    Edit: Oops, just saw your post above.

    See above post for bump. But otherwise it's just a couple clicks and I know our team of helpers will fix me up and then I will be able to say this was easy. (And it really has been)
    I'm still not even nervous.

    I'm not familiar with the toolkit...those things scare me, honestly lol

    Have you done the recovery-from-boot.p rename in /system? I would have thought that something as automated as the toolkit would do this for you, but maybe not.

    All this does though is keep the stock recovery from flashing upon a reboot...confused as to why it's saying you are not rooted

    The toolkit is infinitely less scary for me. I'm rebooting now to try the renaming thing.

    Just wanted to share that I'm a fellow non-rooter/non-flasher thoroughly enjoying stock ICS. I am, however, using Nova Launcher and loving it!!! I just hope they add wrap-around homescreen scrolling...

    After renaming you will have to flash clockworkmod recovery again, through ROM Manager, (easier, though I have always preferred fastboot), for custom recovery.

    You also may need to launch the Super User App and update, even if you are "currently up to date."

    Use any IRC client, or hit the "Chat Live" button in the toolbar at the top of the screen! I'm in there now.

    Chrome wouldn't work? IRC works just fine for me on Chrome. Try this one in Chrome, see if that works.
