    Is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus I9250 really root capable?

    I've downloaded the software and I can run it and install the drivers. The next popup ("Provide the end user detailed instructions for manually configuring their drivers.") never appears though
    I've run it automatically and also manually try to setup the drivers (removing the driver and redirecting it manually to Galaxy Nexus Root Toolkit driver).
    In both cases, I can open a terminal with adb devices and my device is displayed.
    List devices of the Galaxy Nexus Root Toolkit also shows my device.
    The Windows Explorer reaches the card and I can use it normally.

    But all backups return with 0 kb.
    I'm affraid to go further with rooting without the backup.

    Is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus I9250 really root capable?

    More details:
    Android 4.0.2 ICL53F 3.0.8-gaaa2611
    GSM/HSPA+ Galaxy Nexus "maguro"

    Thanks for any advice (I've read a lot in internet about it but I can't manage...).

    Yes, it's capable of being rooted...I assume you're using Wug's toolkit based on your description, which will root the GSM version.

    I'm not sure why the backups would be 0kb, but you may want to ask Wug about the backups in his toolkit thread if you want to preserve your data.

    Sorry me... After digging a lot I've just saw that I've set previously a backup password into the phone settings.
    When I've starting a new one, I was not providing that one.
    Now I'm capable of backing up and I'm much more self confident to go further.
    Thanks Dippa.
