  • Did you perform step 5 correctly? Reboot your phone and try again. Apr 19, 2012 at 19:12

    This is often a driver issue. I'd check the Windows device management list and see if you have an unrecognized device or anything of that nature. You can also try fastboot devices to make sure it's being recognized (if you don't get a result from that command then it's not being seen by fastboot). Apr 19, 2012 at 19:15
  • Yea i think it is a driver issue because I tried looked in Windows device management and i tried to re-install but my computer won't recognize the phone. it shows (Unknown device), it just installs and fails. How would i solve?

    You could try the Galaxy Nexus Root Toolkit. It has a driver setup of feature of some sort, and I think it provides instructions for manually setting it up if the automated install fails. I don't know much beyond that, unfortunately. Apr 19, 2012 at 19:29
