    Re-root

    When I updated from 4.2.1 to 4.2.2 on my GNEX it wiped/lost my root. I want to re-root with Wug's Nexus Root Toolkit which I used before. Is there special/different steps to re-rooting a phone or do I just start from the beginning?

    Your phone should still be unlocked, as the same thing occurred on my Nexus7 when it updated when I went back to rooted stock.
    If you've used Wugs before you should be able to reconnect to the computer you originally used, with wugs on it and basically start from the rooting section.
    I should ask, When you restart do you still first see the unlock symbol under the Google? It was pretty simple to redo as I recall.
