It was my first time rooting, and I researched and checked out 10++ guides on how to root, and each were slightly different so it made it difficult.
Eventually I got the adb commands down, and after unsuccessfully attempting to flash the recovery a bunch of times, i got Cyanogen on my nexus.
Its AMAZING. Super fast, wifitether, trackball colors, torch, overclocking, and more. I'm still working on getting back all of the apps i downloaded, but I'm getting there. PLUS, all my apps are working as they did before the root. Having 200mb++ extra of ram is pretty nice too.
My question is for other rooted nexus users! Now that I have root on my phone, what do you recommend as far as apps/roms/anything that is interesting? Been searching around and finding various root apps, but I'm a bit lost as I'm still somewhat new to the rooting.
