Samsung Galaxy Nexus Rom Install Tips
1. First you need to unlock your boot loader, this can be done by fastboot commands or by using a utility. When the bootloader is unlocked you can install a custom recovery image. I recommend TRWP recovery, but clock work mods is also ok.
2. Once you have unlocked the Boot loader and have a recovery install you can root you device by flashing a root zip file or just install a custom rom that has root. Recommend Eclipse, AOKP, CM10, or Code name adroid/cna roms
3. Because this device has a unlocked bootloader you can flash kernals to the device to over clock and tweak it for better performance. Make sure you do lots of research on the kernal before flashing, and make sure it is compatable with you rom.
4. You can also flash radios to this device for better signal. Again be very careful doing this and research it first.

I payed close attention to the prompt on the phone, when it was pushing. After prompting “downloading SuperSU” it says “Checking for MD5 file, then no MD5 file found, followed by “skipping check for MD5 file” — could this be why?
Still didn’t work… even with a full restore (still unlocked).
I’m trying to root my Galaxy Nexus. It seems that everything is successful prior to rooting — drivers, and unlock. When I hit the root button, it goes through the root process and once it’s complete I have SuperSU installed. When I click on SuperSu it can’t download the binaries. Root Check says that my device isn’t properly rooted. Any advice?
