Yeah, I'm having the same problem. I download the file fine but Windows and 7Zip both claim that the zip is invalid. =(

Any chance this can be updated to support 4.0.4? :) I appear to have lost root after upgrading. I restored root with Voodoo OTA root keeper however no apps can get root.

Tried to re root with Superboot and it gets stuck on the screen with the unlocked padlock now.

I also failed getting proper root with superboot r4 after upgrading to 4.0.4.

Feature request would also be to update the files to the latest versions: http://goo-inside.me...fghi-signed.zip

Thanks

Same for me... tried to install via fastboot and it gets stuck on the screen with the unlocked padlock. Galaxy Nexus 4.0.4 IMM76I.

I haved seen the automated method but I prefer use fastboot to root my device.

Great tool, thanks!

The following part I managed to do it as per this thread.

Note: If you are using a retail Galaxy Nexus, you may need to unlock the bootloader first, using './fastboot-windows oem unlock' (or the appropriate version for your machine). Note that the OEM unlock sequence wipes your device.

Updated to the latest release!


What has been updated?

SuperUser doesn't work with 4.2 and upwards unless you use a patched version. SuperSU does work from version 0.98, but is closed source.

adb-windows.exe in the package is old (1.0.25). 1.0.31 and later is needed to support adb sideload.

Would be great to see a changelog, and also please update the adb and fastboot binaries to their latest versions. Here is a link to the platform-tools_r16 for all platforms: http://www.hariadi.o...platform-tools/
