If using the "Unroot/Stock 4.2" Kit, does it overwrite CWM and flash the stock recovery so that OTA updates are possible?

Yes it will install stock recovery and you will be able to get OTA updates.

SU binary doesn't install
I used the automated root kit and got hung up with the SuperSU install in CWM recovery. CWM said SD card couldn't be mounted and therefore couldn't find the file in downloads.

So, rebooted and downloaded SuperSU from market. When I opened it up I get the message "There is no SU binary installed and SuperSU cannot install it."

After a search I came across others who have had the same problem. Went to:

And then downloaded and flashed it in CWM recovery. Rebooted and all was good.

Thanks for the tools!

Wug's kit is not for macs. Not too mention your comment is disrespectful to efforts made by the OP. I found this tool kit to be very helpful. By the way, what happened to 1kds?

I would have been without a phone until I went to work tomorrow if not for this toolkit. Was stuck at Nexus logo and Wugs wasn't working on my virtual machine. I am exhausted, will take care of the donate tomorrow. THANK YOU!!!!

Sent a little something, great work!

Man, was getting fed up with my Nexus with /0 and /legacy folders I decided to do a clean wipe with this toolkit. Followed all the directions, it wiped the phone, but kept the ROM I was running before instead of the stock rom and I don't have any service anymore :/

It cleared all my data on the hard drive though, so no nandroids to jump back to.

I don't consider myself dumb when it comes to flashing, I've been doing it since my Evo 4g. I'm just confused as heck as to what is going wrong.

Edit, nevermind. Finally got it to boot up to install another ROM and flashing Sprint Radio. Thanks.
