However, if you have flashed your ROM already, then you need to download the Galaxy Nexus Update Checker Apps to find out which version you have, e.g. yakjuux for Canada by Samsung, of which I am trying to make an original copy. If you have a yakju version, you can download from Mark's link above.

I've flashed maguro build 20 already. Before rooting,unlocking and flashing the phone is YAKJUXW but now is YAKJU. All the GNex in my country is YAKJUXW so I need YAKJUXW to get my warranty. How can I do that?

Hi Mark,

I am not quite sure if I have missed anything, but there are some error messages coming up:

E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/command
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/log
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/log
E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/last_log
E:Can't open /cache/recovery/last_log

So far, I have:

1. Install Galaxy Nexus Drivers to your PC
3. UnLock your Bootloader
9. Boot to CWM Recovery without Permanently Flashing it

Should I perform 4. Root your phone between Step 3 and 9.

Your feedback will very much be appreciated.

Hi Mark,

Would you please kindly let me know what I have done wrong?

To perform a NANDROID backup via cwm your phone needs to be rooted first. If you are unlocked then you can just select the root option and once its complete you can then boot into cwm and do your backup.

Your NANDROID will of course backup your root files but 'I think' if you restored the image and then locked your bootloader and unlocked it again (thus doing a full wipe) it may unroot the phone in the process but I have never tried it.

Hi Mark,

Thank you. I apologize for any inconvenience it may cause as I am usually more cautious when dealing with ROMs of any type.

To confirm, the correct sequence for backing up the ROM without flashing are:

1. Install Galaxy Nexus Drivers to your PC
3. UnLock your Bootloader
4. Root your phone
9. Boot to CWM Recovery without Permanently Flashing it

Would you please tell me where I can locate the back-up file?

Besides, is the superuser.apk permanently installed in the phone or do I need to install the apps seperately?

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Yes thats the correct procedure.

Which backup file are you refering to?

The root process copies superuser.apk and su binary across to your phone and then sets their correct permissions. On the next boot superuser will be installed and you will be rooted.

Hi Mark,

Thank you. After I have rooted the phone, the error messages have disappeared.

Before I select backup & restore under the insecure CWM, should I:

1. wipe data/factory reset?
2. wipe cache partition?
3. Advance - Wipe Dalvik Cache?

After the insecure CWM back-up is completed, what steps do I need to take to pull the file out from the phone?

Thanks.

There is no real need to perform a factory reset before backing up.

The cwm backup is saved in a date stamped folder to /sdcard/clockworkmod/backups

Hi Mark,

Thanks. This is probably my last question. Do I need a file manager, e.g. root explorer, File Expert by Geek Software Technology Inc, etc to locate the file on the phone and transfer to my computer.

Is the File Expert by Geek Software Technology Inc sufficient for an average user?

When you plug your phone into your pc you should be able to view the phones sd card with your Windows Explorer and copy the folder across.

Doesn't do anything, no serial number is listed.

edit: It works in Android OS, but doesn't in fastboot.
