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!

While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
This month was a big one for Android 5.1.1 updates, as you can see from last week's roundup and the barrage of posts on the portal's front page in the recent past. So far we are seeing the lineup of Wear watches, the Nexus 4, Nexus 9, Nexus 10, Nexus Player, and a handfull of others slowly make their way to the latest Android. While waiting around for updates may be fine for casual users, this is XDA; we have OTA download links...
