    It says it will create a folder on your pc with all your backup of your apps, but will wipe the sdcard so make sure you back up your pics :)

    I've used it several times it works good but doesn't restore your SD card data, or any app data, now with version 1.3 you can do some of that but isn't really recommended for rom swapping. I just use it to reload all my apps then I reconfigure my device using screenshots I took previously.

    Wishing he would make this for Macs as well...I don't trust myself with ADB yet.

    With very few exceptions the Android folks do not support the Mac community. A crying shame.

    I shot the above post quickly from my phone while attempting (failingly) to evade boredom at a party...

    Anyway. I also wanted to shout out thanks to wugfresh for the program, Steven58 for this thread and ssick92 for this post which helped get me out of the boot loop. :D

    rbreban,

    Welcome to the AndroidForums!

    So, you've already flashed a custom ROM? (I'm guessing you didn't if you couldn't get ClockworkMod installed...?).

    The reason I asked is that I'm guessing that if you haven't installed a custom ROM, then you probably still have the /system/recovery-from-boot.p file present which will cause Android to automatically re-flash the stock recovery.

    If you have already flashed a custom ROM, then you probably shouldn't have lost your custom recovery.

    Also, you're saying that ROM Manager wasn't able to identify your device to present you with a particular version of CWM to flash? :thinking:

    Let me know...I've got some suggestions for you depending on what you reply back with. We'll get you fixed-up, though :).

    Cheers!

    Wug's unlock tool was made for the galaxy nexus, not the s2. for information on unlocking/rooting the s2, check out these threads, depending on your carrier:

    So maybe it's just me but there seems to be a step I'm missing trying to get root to finish?

    I'm unlockled now, but then I get on my phone a ton of options from team win recovery project v2.2.0
    None of this I can find a step by step guide from the Wug's Galaxy Nexus Root Toolkit.

    What did I miss?
    Also the version of Wug's Galaxy Nexus Root Toolkit I'm using is the newest 1.5.3 that doesn't offer 2 options for Root. Just a root button and a custom recovery flash checkbox???
