Thank you, its been so long since I rooted my last device I've forgotten most of it - do I need a new SDK and if so where do I get it?

I'm running Mac OS X 10.7.5

Apoloiges for asking but it has completely left me.

no you don't need a newer SDK, if you have the platform-tools and tools folder you are good to go...

Apologies but is there an online guide? Iv'e got no idea what I did before when I was on my Nexus One, I reckon I might as well delete the SDK and reinstall both SDK and Eclipse sO I can root with a clean system.

It would appear it is a lot simpler now as you can download a sdk / eclipse bundle from here

Why do you say that? I have my Galaxy Nexus locked again with a custom ROM and kernel and it works fine. Ive never seen mention of this non-booting thing if the bootloader is locked when running something custom

I have the Solution

If you have the same problem - Go into Stock-Recovery and make a "Factory Reset" then reboot the system.

It's may be wrong, I'm basing it on my XOOM days where it wouldn't boot it you relocked with anything other than stock. If that's different now, feel free to ignore me

I know that when an update comes out I have to relock the bootloader, but if I unlock it after the update does it wipe the device again

1. No. You're just unlocking the bootloader.
2. Yes.
3. Custom roms take time. With that said, they can't really do much in the way of improving app layout, that's on the app developers hands.

I'd suggest doing a bit more research on bootloaders, root access, custom recoveries and custom roms before digging in too far.
