I have a LTE (Verizon) Samsung Galaxy Nexus. How do I go about unlocking the bootloader such that I can root the device?
- Install SDK
- Get the Fastboot.exe and place in your SDK/tools
- Turn on USB debugging on phone
- Connect to PC via USB
- Using adb, run
adb reboot bootloader
- At the bootloader, run
fastboot oem unlock
- Accept dialog to unlock bootloader
- Start phone, phone will reboot, do not battery pull!
