4. Nexus 7 (GSM) [tilapia]
5. Galaxy Nexus (GSM) [maguro]

DOWNLOAD IT FOR LINUX HERE

DOWNLOAD IT FOR MAC OSX HERE

Galaxy Nexus Linux Toolkit is Open Source! See the CODE

HOW TO EXECUTE:
Please extract the .tgz in the place you want, for example in /home/user
Open a terminal and type the following:
>[email protected]: cd "THE PATH WHERE IS THE unltlauncher.sh FILE"
>[email protected]: bash ./unltlauncher.sh
If you extract it in /home/user/unlt, the path to the .sh must be /home/user/unlt
so you have to type:
>[email protected]: cd /home/user/unlt
>[email protected]: bash ./unltlauncher.sh

Note: If you're running on a 64 bits OS, please install 32 bits libraries. If you're running on Linux and you didn't configure UDEV rules for your device, please run the script with superuser permissions (sudo bash unltlauncher.sh)

Here are some SCREENSHOTS::good:

Just used this. Excellent work. Tried using the standard adb way and just couldn't get the bootloader unlocked. Thank you so much for this!

I tried the cwm way of unlocking and rooting my N4 and everything seemed to work fine. I did the method where I kept my stock recovery however I can't access it. If I use your tool and flash the stock image will this wipe everything on my device?

So it will be just like it came to me from google? Locked and not rooted.

It will be just like it came from Google, but with unlocked bootloader. If you also want to lock the bootloader you have to run the lock bootloader option after running the Factory reset option.

What is the advantage to locking the bootloader once you are finished?

Also, not that it matters, but will your phone stop receiving OTA updates if you root it?

After rooting using the toolkit, my phone sticks at the 'Google' screen but won't boot into Recovery. Should I try the process again?

    It will only stop getting OTA if you replace recovery, you will still get the notice, it just won't install
