I could use some help so I don't brick my phone. I have done a search or two on how to root this particular build and it's probably me - I don't think I have found any information to my question. On xda there was info on the superboot method from modaco that it only worked on ICS4.0.1. The GNex toolkit v7 does not have build IMM30d included. I purchased the phone from Google play and received it late last week. Is this build supported by any root method mentioned? Or will anyone link me to a method that supports the build?

Don't use toolkits. It's not that there is anything inherently bad with them, but having a program do everything for you without understanding how it is doing it means that you don't know how to fix anything if something goes wrong. It's better to do things manually and learn how everything works before taking the easy way through it.

Haha, alright. This is in the Q&A section and I'm sure as hell no developer. I'm coming from a mytouch4g. Had to use adb to downgrade from gingerbread to froyo to root it. Even after reading it over a couple times the directions were still intimidating. It looked like an easy option. Appreciate the input though.

I'll reiterate what others said...
You'll want to know that adb and fastboot are set up correctly, anyway.
They're EXTREMELY useful in countless situations.

I promise you that it'll be an easy process.

Appreciate the link/input you posted. I'll follow it correctly I hope as it doesn't appear to be rocket science.
