    ok, so i am trying to root my galaxy nexus, however, i dont seem to be having much luck with any of the guides i have been looking at...i spent most of yesterday afternoon trying to setup my computer to use wugfresh's tool, but had all kinds of issues when trying to configure the drivers....is there an app i can get from the app store to root my phone? or a good tried and true tutorial i can follow that isnt too complex?

    Try this video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtKoaPEXzHs&feature=plcp&context=C4c4d8a8VDvjVQa1PpcFMG8vvw1JCMbr-EksEinDfXlSZPXNKiA-w=

    I've been following this guy for all my superuser needs, and he's always come through!

    Also, check out this site for some good ROMs, kernels, and other ROMs (careful, to my experience the people here can be a bit unfriendly): http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1336

    Also, what experience do you have rooting android? Have you rooted previous devices, or is this your first time doing so?
