Try re-downloading the file and trying again or try a different computer. I have never encountered that problem.

I'm having trouble with getting back into CWM after running this. I was able to get into CWM the first time to flash the SuperSu.zip file. After I rebooted and unpluged my phone from the computer, I tried to get back into recovery. All I get is a dead android guy with a ! above him.

If you canít get into recovery, try re-flashing recovery then go straight into recovery. What happens is that stock Android OS has a security measure that overwrites your custom recovery upon reboot. If this happens to you, simply re-flash recovery and boot into recovery right away without reboot.

Worked great on my GSM Galaxy Nexus.

I initially tried the windows toolkit, but I could never get the drivers to install on my aging Vista machine. I'd much rather have something working for my Mac. And having it in script form is, I have to say, a big plus, because it's easy to see what's going on, tweak it, whatever (not that I had to).

Thank you very much for this, techfanatic9!

If my bootloader is already un-locked will this Root GSM/Verizon/Sprint just install SU, CWM and root without wiping?

Yes. Just press enter even though you have an unlocked bootloader. And it will continue on with the rooting process.

If I wanted to flash the newest version of CWM, is it as easy as replacing the .img from your install folder with the newest CWM version?

Yes it is. Just renaming the new CWM name as the exact same name as the old one.
