[Windows][Linux][Mac][One-Click] Root - CWM - Galaxy Nexus 4.0.1 & 4.0.2 -NO WIPE-

OP AdamOutler

1st May 2012, 12:50 AM   |  #1  
Introduction
I put together a one-click root in CASUAL format. Because it's in CASUAL format, the same Java JAR will work on Windows, Linux and Mac.

This package contains
  • root your device without unlocking/wiping.
  • install busybox without unlocking/wiping.
  • install Clockwork Mod Recovery for GSM or CDMA without unlocking/wiping.
  • Lock/unlock

Download and Instructions
CASUAL is easy to use, and fairly self explanitory.
  1. Launch the downloaded application using Java with right-click-open, or from a command line: "java -jar GalaxyNexus.jar"
  2. Select "Galaxy Nexus root"
  3. Click the "Do It' button
  4. Optionally: Repeat the previous step with "Install Busybox" option selected to install Busybox.
  5. Optionally: Select Install Galaxy Nexus CDMA or GSM ClockWork Mod Recovery

Download Galaxy Nexus Root and Busybox
Ensure you have Java Installed on your computer. Do you have java?

Shown on Ubuntu 12.04, ready to root a Galaxy Nexus:

About

Hope this helps! Please leave feedback.

Great. Any chance of getting this working on 4.0.3 or 4.0.4? Keep on the good work

If anyone can come up with an exploit, CASUAL can package it for one-click operation on all operating systems.

Hi! If i root my Nexus with this tool, then i will void the warranty? I dont want to install recovery or unlock bootloader, just root.

Looks nice

Yes!

I'm still working on figuring out all of the reprecussions of this. I think it can be done, but I'm not sure what all is contained in the same file... I don't want to release something with side effects.

I'm not really sure what the terms and conditions of your warranty are, but there is no "unlocked" icon to show that you've voided your warranty because this uses a permissions exploit to circumvent the need to unlock and flash a kernel.

I would GLADLY donate a nice amount if there would be a way to make this work on Honeycomb. Sick of Verizon's bs not getting ICS out to the Xoom, but I have too much game data saved - don't wanna root since unlock/wipe is required.
