Google’s current flagship phone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, has seen a lot of love from a wide-spread community of developers since its release in November of last year. By now, many Galaxy Nexus users have already unlocked their bootloaders, gained root access, and flashed more than a few ROMs. That doesn’t mean that development for the device has slowed down. On the contrary, new developments, mods, and tools show up on a near-daily basis, both in our forums and across the web.
One such tool has been brought to our attention by XDA Forums member gator79, and it comes in the form of two all-in-one boot discs. Originally created by 1KDS, these discs allow users to boot into a pre-configured Linux environment with ADB, fastboot, and necessary drivers. One disc contains the files needed to unlock the bootloader and root the device. The other disc has everything required to restore a Galaxy Nexus to the stock 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich firmware and lock the bootloader.
