Everyone wants to Root Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean [4.2.2] since rooting gives them access to restricted system folder. After make an update to Jelly Bean official surely you'll lose your previous rooting file and your galaxy nexus goes back completely to factory state. It's necessary to root Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean [4.2.2] again. Here is a brief explanation about rooting Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean [4.2.2].

Rooting Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean [4.2.2] is installing the root programs (the su program and the Superuser.apk app). These programs, in combination with each other, allow you to run other programs under the "root" account under Android. Programs that run under the root account are not restricted like normal apps are.

Advantages of rooting Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean [4.2.2] include:
  • Overclocking
  • Underclocking which can help save battery for those times when you might not need the phone (i.e. sleeping, in the cinema, at school, etc)
  • Mods to improve battery life
  • Access to apps that might require superuser permission (i.e. Titanium Backup, DroidWall and SetCPU)
  • Removal of bloatware such as apps preinstalled by manufacturers or carriers
  • Deeper customization i.e. tweaks to the phone’s UI
  • Flashing ROMs such as CyanogenMod and MIUI

Tool that we need is Galaxy Nexus Toolkit 11.1.0 which is completely refined for Jelly Bean 4.2.2.

On Android 4.2.2, "Developer Options" is hidden. You need to tap the Build Number 7 times in Setting/About until it says "you're now developer."

NOTE: As the ToolKit.exe and ModsSection.exe files are not Digitally Signed with a Microsoft Certificate they 'may' get picked up as potentially harmful by Antivirus Programs and deleted on first run. If this happens restore the file and exclude it from future scans to use it. This seems to happen mostly on AVG Free and Norton.

The first thing you need to do is to install the adb/fastboot drivers. These are needed so that the phone is detected on the computer. 


After the drivers have been installed,
connect the usb cable. In the Device Manager a new item called 'Android 1.0' should pop up and adb driver should install automatically. Once it is installed you will have a new section in the Device Manager called Android Phone without an "!" meaning its installed correctly. 

Note: If the adb driver doesnt install automatically then double click on the Android 1.0 item in device manager, then click on the driver tab and select 'update driver'. Select 'browse my computer' and then 'Let me pick from a list'. If no items appear in the list then untick 'Show compatible hardware' and find the Android adb driver or Samsung adb driver.
