    simplest just root method out

    Hi all, i want to take the step of rooting my gnex but from looking around its all so overwhelming really, all i simply want to do is root it so i have SU access and can run root apps, i dont have any need for custom roms or images or flashing and the such just need the SU access, but im having trouble finding that simple root(and maybe unroot dnt really care there) method, on my old galaxy 5 i just downloaded an actual android app and pressed the only button it had an viola i was rooted.

    if anyone can point me in the direction of the simplest method or at least point out the no frills method to use some of the tools out there that can seemingly do everything, that be awesome

    Check out wugfresh galaxy nexus root toolkit. You can find it right here on the forum. Follow the steps and do exactly as it tells you. He makes it very easy. 3-4 clicks of the mouse and you can be rooted.

    Use the help file associated with the toolkit for driver setup information.
