Default [Q] Galaxy Nexus won't root/update

My Galaxy Nexus is stuck on android 4.1.1,Odin won't recognize it due to the fact that it's a Nexus device,as well as Odin.
OTA update won't work either,when ever i try to check it just says Up to date,i've also tried Deleting the Google framework thing,didn't work either.
Rooting isn't working as well,tried several root kits,including the Galaxy Nexus Tool Kit that i've found here,as well as Others.
Any help ?
General Information :
Board : Tuna
Device : Maguro
Product : yakjujp
GSM model

Enjoy!
It is a LOT easier than you may think. Just take your time and read carefully a couple times and let it sink in, it should all start to make sense fairly quickly
