Can anyone point me in the right direction? I'm trying to figure out how to root my 32g sprint galaxy nexus SPH-L700. Just looking for a guide I can't find one anywhere. Thanks in advance.

Flash custom recovery via fasrboot and then flash latest supersu via recovery.

A little more direction than that please? Maybe a link to a walkthrough? Last time I had to flash a custom recovery it wouldn't root properly. I would rather have a walkthrough than brickb my phone.

The galaxy nexus is very hard to brick..
1. Download a custom recovery from the clockworkmod site.
2. Boot into fastboot and type: fastboot flash recovery the-name-of-the-recovery-you-just-downloaded.img (for this to work you need to paste the downloaded recovery.img into the fastboot folder)
3. Boot into recovery and select "install zip from sd card" (assuming you already downloaded the lastest supersu.zip)
4. Flash the latest supersu and wipe both cache and dalvik cache.
5. Reboot and enjoy.

download recovery http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/toro

open command prompt

adb devices
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot devices
fastboot oem unlock
fastboot flash recovery {name-of-recovery.img}

then download SU from here

http://download.chainfire.eu/396/Sup...erSU-v1.94.zip

and flash that in your new recovery.
