    Question easier to root/flash on PC or Mac?

    I bought a Nexus and looking into rooting and flashing. I currently use a Mac. I do have an older netbook running windoze.

    Can I root/flash easily on Mac or would it be better to do this on my netbook?

    And are their tutorials in this forum?


    thank u

    Windows would be easier as most tools/ drivers are windows based.

    Have you backed up your files and pictures? I see too many desperate cries for help recovering deleted priceless pictures with no solution.

    Just curious, i was browsing around and found this: Guide: Update your Galaxy Nexus from ‘yakjuux’ to ‘yakju’ 4.0.4 – Mac OS X | Digital Igloo

    I think all I really want to do at this point is change my phone so that I get the updates from google rather than samsung or my cell provider-fido. Is there a method to go from yakjuux?

    Thanks

    I changed the builds so that I get updates from google and not my cell provider or Samsung.

    Question: if I erase back to factory settings do I lose the google build?

    Thanks

    No you don't. Factory settings would bring you back to the latest installed build on your device
