Galaxy Nexus Tips: Unlock bootloader, root, recovery, more

Now that many of us have a shiny new Galaxy Nexus in our hands, I'm sure many of our readers are looking for a few tips and guides. With this being a Nexus device this will be one of the easiest phones to unlock, root, and fully enjoy but we have all the details round up just in case. Below you'll find a few links to XDA, Google+ and more.

ClockworkMod “somewhat” working on the Nook Tablet

It seems that ClockworkMod may have been successfully ported to the recently released Barnes & Noble NOOK Tablet. If this new tablet is just as hackable as its former NOOK Color, then we could very well see Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) on it in due time. What the development community is more interested now is just seeing some custom ROMs as soon as possible.

Samsung Galaxy Note gets ClockworkMod and Root

One thing I love about Samsung phones is they aren't extremely difficult to break into and enjoy. No hoops to jump through like Motorola, or crazy bootloader unlocks like HTC. Instead they just need a few tricky developers and members of the community and we quickly have root access, overclocking kernels and more. This is the same situation with the Galaxy Note. It is very similar to the Galaxy S II but a little enlarged, and has many of the same file systems and goods under the hood making the process fairly quick. We have ClockworkMod and root already achieved thanks to XDA developers.

LG G2x and Optimus 2x get 1 click clockwork recovery

Earlier in the week we told you about the G2x getting 1-click-root and recovery and you can read about that here. The root method is a 1-click program that is as simple as it gets, but the flashing of clockworkmod recovery was a different story. It needed additional files and NvFlash. Now we have ClockworkMod Recovery for the G2x the easy way.

Droid X Gingerbread Update happening today

Droid X users are starting to get the official Gingerbread update today, but users who want to root their phones may want to think twice. The new update is version 4.5.588, and according to reports, the devil is in the details as to what it brings. It seems that Motorola may be quietly replacing the Droid X bootloader with a locked down version and users will have no way to revert back to the previous version. As if that wasn't enough, the fact that Motorola and Verizon are quietly performing the update with no notice is just plain devious.

LG Optimus 2x (aka T-Mo G2x) gets clockwork recovery already

Well well, it looks like the amazing Paul O'Brien from ModaCo has been busy with the new dual core device from LG. He has already done plenty on this phone but recently he has announced and shown pictures for a few exciting things. One being that Paul himself said the phone is a developer dream device. It is not locked down, and messed up like phones have been lately from both Motorola, and HTC. It is open, and free just like it should be and as Android was intended.
