Flashing
Let's say I have a Nexus Prime (Galaxy Prime) laying around... How would I flash all of this. In what order?

You wouldn't, your Galaxy Nexus would have it installed already.

I wouldn't flash a pre-release build (like this one) if you already have the release build on your Galaxy Nexus...

Again, you wouldn't.

This type of release is not a release that can be flashed, you might be able push it all manually, but the release is just for curious people/developers who is looking at the software.

I haven't downloaded myself. I tar file is an archive like a zip file. What's inside? If it is a bunch of files, you will need to manually push them all to your device (like FISKER_Q said) using adb. If it is one image file then just use fastboot.

So I just downloaded it, and it is all the files in the /system partition. You can push them manually via ADB, or you can (or have someone) create a flashable zip and flash through recovery.

A tar file can be flashed through Odin. Since its a Samsung phone I'm sure Odin will support it.
