    I don't understand either. I saw that someone bricked their Nexus by using the superboot. Kind of sucks as this is the method I was planning on using when I get home _______ morning after buying the phone

    There's an easier method I found though that doesn't deal with any insecure boot image:

    1. Unlock the bootloader (fastboot oem unlock)
    2. Flash CWM recovery in fastboot: Link
    3. Flash Superuser in CWM: Link
    4. Reboot


    And you're all set. :)

    Exactly true. This is why my CSR told me to have the phone charged to my account, if they can't/won't put the discount on at the store. After I buy the phone, having the phone debited to my account, then they're going to see his notes and give me the 100 dollar credit, when I call back into the tele center. :)

    That is the catch. It is coming out Thursday, but all stores are closed.

    When I talked to the store manager here earlier, they indicated they might open an hour earlier on Thursday for the sale. So maybe that mass update is in progress.

    i like this notion.
    a midnight release would be really cool in-store.

    Yeah, what's weird is all of the stores around me were in the same format (M-blah T-Th blah). Now every day is listed separately with Thursday missing.

    Perhaps they are planning special hours for this Thursday and are now updating the site to state those hours?

    HAHA! Omg! Verizon is laughing at us so hard! Or maybe it's just the webmasters, but they've removed Thursday from the store hours of every store on their site. LOL
