To stop this from happening I simply rename the 2 files if they are present so they cant do any harm. The exact commands I use are:

You can rename them yourself but you need root access and a root explorer.

Unlocking the bootloader will wipe EVERYTHING including the virtual sd card whether done manually or using the ToolKit there is no way round this. Even flashing a rom via odin with the phone still locked will unlock the phone and wipe it during the process.

O OK thanks for that. I see u mention odin I see it was used for everything with the epic 4g touch (SGS2) but I don't see that yet from this even tho there's a dl mode? Well thanks

Awesome, going to check it out ASAP. I hate not being able to install my root required apps (ES Explorer/Titanium/etc).

Just got my GNex yesterday, was only one of two that the store got.

You're lucky then I think there has been more demand for the Nexus than anyone thought and most places are out of stock.

I KNOW! I tried doing the preorder, but I had just dropped $4500 on getting my roof repaired & the funds were all tied up. By time I had em, the preorder had closed.

I half expected a line or something when I got there, but wasn't anyone. Asked for it, she said "hmm, let me check". Came back with one in her hand saying they only received two & mine was the last one.

I'm not taking time to set it all up until I root it . . . only to repeat it. I'm kinda befuddled about the lack of SD Card slot though. I didn't realize it didn't come with one until I had pulled the battery looking for where it mounted!

Then to get some apps on there. Connection sucks at work though.

I may have spoke so soon. I'm getting error 7 assert fail when flashing a twrp recovery zip. Is that an issue with the recovery on the toolkit or the zip. I flashed a teerom and kernel with no issues though.....
