I'm just wondering if anyone has any idea of what would be best to use: this toolkit or wug's? They both basically serve the same main functions from what i can tell. I'm getting my GN tomorrow and im itching to try these things out. Or would it be better to do the manual method. I'm new to this sort of modding. Came from a bionic and everything that i did there seemed less complicated. I have been reading up on these processes but i have not really seen a comparison. Can they be used in unison? Will there be a conflicts? This toolkit looks awesome btw. If anyone can just steer me towards a good place to start and let me know if there are any obvious problems with going one way or the other from their experience that would really help me out. Thank you in advance!
On this Forum I see more people use Wug's. He's great about coming into his thread to answer questions and offer support. As you said they both do the same thing so it's up to you. As far as manual method, that all depends on your level of understanding. Lot's of people here to help or answer any questions along the way so jump in. Whatever you choose make backups of everything first.
Have you backed up your files and pictures? I see too many desperate cries for help recovering deleted priceless pictures with no solution.
Need to hard reset? How to Hard Reset-Factory Data Reset.
I've done both the manual method and used wug's kit...the kit is by far the easiest but honestly neither is overly complicated

I did not use wugs..what made me choose this one is all the backup options coming with it. For support mskip is mostly on xda so easier to reach him from there. I did a few times.
Anyhow im sure both tools work nicely..
But for me the gnex toolkit had more options and felt more user friendly
Sent from my Galaxy Nexus
SlimBean 4.2.2 build 2
Kernel Franco 366
thanks for input all...i was just looking at both side by side and i agree that there seems to be more options w/ gnex toolkit....guess ill give that one a go tomorrow when my device shows up....ill probably end up doing manual method later just to familiarize myself with the ins and outs....pretty excited!!
RELEASE OF GALAXY NEXUS TOOLKIT V7.2 [JELLY BEAN EDITION]
ToolKit v7.2 (9th July 2012) ANOTHER BIG UPDATE!
+Added Root support for Jelly Bean (4.1) on all models (maguro, toro, toroplus)
+Added Busybox install into 1-CLICK process
+Added download link for Stock Toro IMM76K image
+Added option to keep/delete NAND backup files after NAND backup completes
+Added option to push NAND backup folder to Internal or External Storage for CWM restore
+Added Superuser 3.1.3 zip file to root folder for flashing via Custom Recovery if required
+Added insecure boot image for LTE IMM76K builds
+Added Cache Ripper by Adam Lange in Dev Tools
+Grouped Recovery flash options
+Grouped Bootloader Unlock/ReLock options
+Added Colour Settings (background and text)
+Added Reboot to Download Mode in Reboot Options

ModsSection v2.0 (9th July 2012)
+Added check step for Jelly Bean compatability
+Added step to ask if a NAND backup wants to be made before attempting any mods
+Ammended text on Menu Screens
NOTE: If you get the message - exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) when attempting any adb root commands then there is something wrong in your /system folder and the shell won't work. On testing I got this message on certain methods to update to Jelly Bean (may have been my fault when flashing) but most methods are fine.
Download link in first post as usual.
I need sleep now I have been up til 4am the past 5 nights working on getting this out and safe to use.
You kidding me right?

UPDATE FOR GALAXY NEXUS TOOLKIT V7.3 [JELLY BEAN EDITION]
ToolKit v7.3 (10th July 2012)
+Added full auto download Google Stock Image to ToolKit folder ready for extracting/flashing (no need to move the file manually after downloading anymore)
+Fixed Stock Recovery flash flashing TWRP Recovery
+Removed 'Restore NAND files to extSDCard' since there is no external SD Card (oops)
+Adb server is restarted before when ToolKit first starts to improve stability
+Minor re-writes to improve some scripts
This is mainly a bug fix version for V7.2 but I have also added some stability features and Internet Explorer isnt used to download a Stock Image anymore. The file is now downloaded directly to the correct ToolKit so you don't have to move it before extracting and flashing (I love making things FULLY automated )
As usual the download link and more information is in the first post.
@mods Please update version number of thread. Thanks.

Tapped via Galaxy Nexus LTE..
UPDATE FOR GALAXY NEXUS TOOLKIT JELLYBEAN EDITION TO V7.4
ToolKit v7.4 (11th July 2012)
+Added ToolKit support for JellyBean 4.1.1 for yakju/takju models but toro and toroplus can use this selection if they have the stock rom.
+Added option to boot from insecure kernel for Internal Storage backup to fix problems on JellyBean builds
+Reorganised folders in ToolKit
+Made some changes to scripts suggested by users
+Clarified some points in the Model Selection Screen
ModsSection v2.1 (10th July 2012)
+Added JellyBean check for certain mods that do not work on 4.1+ (disables those mods if on JellyBean)
I recommend anyone on previous versions to update to V7.4 as it fixes some problems with using the ToolKit on JellyBean builds and adds some more stability and ease of use.
Also I have switched from MediaFire to Dev-Host to host the ToolKit so let me know if its any better/worse downloading it.
