So both of my USB Cables are fully functioning - and still waiting for device. Anything else you can recommend?

Have you looked at those pins inside the phone port yet?

You can notice if they are bent.

If all else fails try another PC.

I will try another PC.
In the meantime, I spoke to a friend, and we came to the conclusion that the version of Android SDK i'm using could be too new - the Galaxy Nexus was a product of 2011, after all.

Perhaps if I install an older version of SDK (however that's possible) I'll be able to root successfully? Just an idea.

I talked to a sales associate at my local mall, and he suggested I try http://www.cyanogenmod.org/ and it worked flawlessly. My phone is now unlocked, running CyanogenMod, and running Kitkat 4.4.

Thanks to everyone for the help! I hope all of your days are great.
