Unlocking/rooting your Galaxy Nexus

This process is similar to all the other Nexus phones, which come unlockable thanks to google:


Clockwork Recovery for Galaxy Nexus (CDMA):

Superuser update package:

Using a console and fastboot (which can be obtained in various places, look around):

# boot into fastboot by powering off, then turning the phone on with volume-up + power
# unlock
fastboot oem unlock
# boot recovery
fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-
# note the trailing slash when pushing the superuser zip
adb push su.zip /sdcard/

Install su.zip from clockwork recovery like you normally would.

In case you flash recovery, you can revert back to stock recovery with this image:
