Galaxy Nexus Toolkit Updated To V4.0, Now Installs Drivers Automatically
If you own a Galaxy Nexus, you should know the Galaxy Nexus Toolkit. Developed by senior moderator mskip, it’s the one-stop-shop to get your phone prepared for all the custom ROM goodness that awaits in the forums, as it automatically unlocks the bootloader, roots any Ice Cream Sandwich build, and installs ClockWord Mod Recovery with just one click.
The only small issue – if you can say so – in previous versions was that you had to install the drivers manually, which wasn’t exactly hard but still left room for improvement. But in the newly released version 4.0, that has been solved, with a new option that will automatically install all required drivers. Also with version 4.0, you can now backup and restore apps and app data, and as a bonus for donators, there is a new “tips, tricks and tweaks” section available.
So, one less excuse to finally try out some custom ROMs on your Galaxy Nexus, just visit the forum thread and follow the instructions there to get ready!

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market. One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
