Use all the tutorial under this release in order to successfully achieve root for your Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone.
Root offers you ‘superuser’ access to all the functions of your device and it mainly removes all limitations imposed by the manufacturer. Remember to only apply root for your Galaxy Nexus if you’re an advanced Android user, so that you won’t end up bricking the phone.
By rooting your phone you will be able from then on to install new Android custom ROMs, custom kernels, overall UI themes, applications that only work with rooted phones, etc. Basically after you root your Galaxy Nexus you will be able to do whatever you want with your phone, but note that its warranty will be voided in the process.
Use all the guides listed in this post to root stock Android releases. Make sure to check the phone’s battery charge level so that the Galaxy Nexus will not power off in the middle of the updating process.
Root your device only if you’re planning on tinkering with your device. Root is unnecessary if you don’t want to install any custom ROMs or use any root-based apps.
We cannot be held responsible in case you brick your phone, also we cannot be blamed if you lose any data during the Galaxy Nexus process.By Alex Dumitru
