    If I may, one question. I have not seen formatting the system & cache before flashing a ROM in other instructions. What is the purpose of formatting first?

    Thanks,

    I always wipe cache and data, but you should wipe dalvik and system if you have OCD.

    Here I thought it was some fancy high tech terminology. Heck, I have *that* kind of OCD...

    Good stuff, dakota. Looking over your instructions is a great refresher. Another comment. In section 1 Install Android SDK to Computer, step 16 should say that you have installed fastboot, right?

    That is great, hadn't thought of it. I will have to familiarize myself with it. Do you use it?

    Thanks for this guide. I will be getting my Nexus in tomorrow and will be checking this thread many times.

    Is there any advantage to using the manual unlock opposed to the Wugfresh toolkit?
