Universal Nexus Linux Toolkit v2.3.0


NOW COMPATIBLE WITH MAC OSX!!!


Universal Nexus Linux Toolkit is a bash script based program that offers an easy way
to do all you need to do before flashing a custom ROM on your Nexus device.

It works with:

1. Nexus 4 [mako]
2. Nexus 10 [manta]
3. Nexus 7 (WiFi) [grouper]
4. Nexus 7 (GSM) [tilapia]
5. Galaxy Nexus (GSM) [maguro]
6. Galaxy Nexus (Verizon) [toro]
7. Galaxy Nexus (Sprint) [toroplus]
8. Nexus S (worldwide version, i9020t and i9023) [crespo]
9. Nexus S (850MHz version, i9020a) [crespo]
10. Nexus S (Korea version, m200) [crespo]
11. Nexus S 4G (d720) [crespo4g]

With this toolkit you will be able to:

- Unlock the bootloader.
- Flash CWM recovery (Standard or Touch).
- Root the phone.
- Lock the bootloader.
- Flash Google Factory Image. (Not available for Sprint Galaxy Nexus)

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:

NOTE FOR THOSE WHO DOWNLOAD unlt200.sh instead of the actual unlt201.sh: Please download unlt201.sh because the toolkit will not work on Nexus 10 if you are running unlt200.sh. The new version has the new CWM recovery.

Is there anyway this can be used with windows? I am not familiar with Linux but I've been looking around for a windows version of the nexus 10 toolkit

I'm wondering this too. I know that virtual machines can be touchy, especially when USB interfaces are involved, so I don't want to try that. Maybe a regular live DVD, or we could use the Wubi installer for ubuntu? I don't know if it's possible to install 32 bit libraries on a live DVD... but I guess I can just download a 32 bit ubuntu image if I go that route (if I can find a blank DVD somewhere!)

As Komodo said, a virtual machine is not recommended for running programs which involve USB interfaces.
Try running Ubuntu from a 32 bits Live CD. But I really recommend to have a Linux OS on hard drive.

There does exist a Toolkit that peforms the same functions as this one but it is meant solely for the Galaxy Nexus. It works on Win xp, Vista, 7 (both 32 and 64 bit versions). I have used the Win 7 64 bit to unlock and root my GNex.

Check my signature for the link to mskip's GNex Toolkit. mskip is an incredibly helpful person, maybe you guys can persuade him to alter his Toolkit to mirror tatelucas' [OP] Toolkit functionality.

As far as Linux is concerned, I am an old history prof. who has learnt linux myself. It is by far the easiest OS to get into but requires patience to learn the command line structure. I run Mint Maya on an old Windows xp box (secondary machine) to tool around Linux and it functions much better than the OS it originally came with.

Good luck.

I am going to try this on a friend's Nexus S (crespo) on Mint Maya and will report back. It should work as Mint takes off of Ubuntu.

has anyone confirmed this to work on Linux? or does it still need to be tested? Im running Ubuntu live cd right now because i wanted to try it, but because i am not familiar at all with linux, i wiould really prefer not to be the guinea pig.

This script does multiple things depending on what options you select. Unlocking does wipe a device. The only other option here that does, I beleive, is flashing the factory image.

Thanks for the info. Sounds like the same process as with the Galaxy Nexus.

Failed on Nexus 7, android 4.2.1

Hi, just to let you know that this fails on my Nexus 7 (groupee) which has been upgraded OTA to 4.2.1 (not sure if this is a contributing factor though)

When I try debug it, it's clear that it fails to flash the CMW.

FYI, I was finally able to root my Nexus 7 using this : http://www.androidng.com/root-nexus-10-on-windows-osx-linux - I know, it's for Nexus 10, but amazingly, it works with my Nexus 7 too :D

Hope you find it useful.


cheers,
Harry

    I'm pleased to report that every function of this worked great for me in Ubuntu.

    Hi, I'm having trouble with this. I'm running Kubuntu 12.04 trying to root a Nexus 10, ran the script and unlocked the boot loader. Now the device boot loops. I can force it to boot into recovery, so flashed ClockworkMod and then did a factory reset and fixed permissions and wiped the cashes (just in case) but the device still boot loops.
    Any ideas anyone?
    Thanks in advance

    Try the factory reset option in recovery. Had the same problem and that got me squared away.

    Re: [LINUX] Universal Nexus Linux Toolkit v2.1.0 (Unlock, Lock, Root, CWM, Factory Re

    Does not work using stock recovery there is no install from SD selection. So if I flash cwm am I going to lose everything? Or am I missing something?

    Obviously. Flash a custom recovery. You won't lose anything.
