Galaxy Nexus Toolkit Ported to Sprint Variant
Those out there who have been following the Samsung Galaxy Nexus have no doubt noticed that Sprint has added a new member to the Galaxy Nexus family, and with that comes a lot of work for developers. Popular ROMs, kernels, tools, and mods from the older Galaxy Nexus devices will slowly make their way over to the Sprint variant. Thankfully for Sprint GNex users, one of the best tool kits out there is already working.
XDA Senior Moderator and Recognized Developer mskip has made the latest version of his Galaxy Nexus Toolkit compatible with the the Sprint phone, and thus makes it compatible with every version of the device. For those who have forgotten, mskip’s allows users to do pretty much everything—from one-click root and unroot to unlocking and relocking the bootloader, flashing a recovery, and even more advanced options like dumping logcats and bug reports to your PC. It really is a remarkable tool, and a must have for any Galaxy Nexus user.
