Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using xda premium
Hello, I am looking to root and unlock bootloader of my wife's phone so I can get her 4.2, however, I am not sure which phone model is hers.
I am using the toolkit 7.8.
She got her phone from Wind Mobile.
I believe her phone is version "7" (Yakju-Maguro JRO03C) based on her currently being on 4.1.1 as well as the build number starting with JRO03C but then having a series of numbers and letters following this.
If you could also help me with which image to get to put 4.2 that would be great.
I am thinking it should be the "yakju" based on the Canadian Wind Mobile model?
Thanks for your confirmation and any help you can provide.
HOW CAN I TELL WHICH FIRMWARE I HAVE ON MY DEVICE
Using any file manager app, go into your /system folder and open the file called "build.prop". Find the line that starts with ro.product.name. Whatever comes after the equals sign (=), that's the firmware you have.
As long as her phone is GSM, you can flash either the yakju or takju image, it doesn't matter. It's your choice.
You don't have to flash the image depending upon the current build.
If you still want to know the the firmware, have a look at this thread.
i am watching your guide or tutorial " How to Restore Galaxy Nexus i9250 to Stock Ice Cream Sandwich [GSM] " .. is it appropriate if i want to bring back 4.1.1 to stock firmware in galaxy nexus ? or will it require some other tutorial .. please guide .
i want to downgrade 4.1.1 to Galaxy nexus stock firmware
