    [HOW TO] Unroot the VZW GN, Re-Lock the bootloader and Start Factory Fresh

    All credit again goes to DroidLife for the fine write-up. This is for the VZW version of the Galaxy Nexus.


    1. Download the Android 4.0.2 factory images to your PC. [Download]
    2. Unzip the file and its contents into your SDK/Tools folder (wherever your adb.exe and fastboot.exe files are).
    *Make sure they are not in their own folder, but have all been extracted to Tools.
    3. From within your Tools folder, open a command prompt (SHIFT + right click – “open command prompt here”):
    4. Type the following commands, allowing each to finish before moving onto the next:
    adb reboot bootloader
    fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-toro-primekk15.img
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
    fastboot flash radio radio-toro-i515.ek02.img
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
    fastboot flash radio-cdma radio-cdma-toro-i515.ek05.img
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
    fastboot -w update image-mysid-icl53f.zip
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
    fastboot oem lock
    5. Reboot your phone by highlighting “Start” and pressing the lock switch.
    6. It really is as simple as that. Your phone is now back to a 100% stock, unrooted and locked state.

    Not having much experience with pushing files via ADB, when you say allow each to finish before moving on, how do you know they have done so? Is there some sort of confirmation?
