Root Galaxy Nexus with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

Just tried to root my GSM Galaxy Nexus manually several days ago. I followed the instruments on the XDA forum here and here. File used are placed in my skydrive.

  1. Download root package (SuperSU-0.93-Busybox-1.20.2.zip)
  2. Download CWM (recovery-clockwork-5.5.0.2-maguro.img)
  3. Reboot into Fastboot Mode: Power off your device and (Power + Volume Up and Down)
  4. Unlock the bootloader if locked (fastboot oem unlock) then reboot into fastboot mode again
  5. Temporarily flash CWM (fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-5.5.0.2-maguro.img)
  6. Boot into recovery (Press Volume Up twice until you see “Recovery mode” then press the Power button)
  7. Using CWM recovery, install SuperSU-0.93-Busybox-1.20.2.zip that you downloaded in step 1. The file should be placed in your /sdcard folder.
  8. Reboot into the OS
  9. You are now rooted
