Samsung Galaxy Nexus gets root access ahead of its release

There’s still no official release date for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Rumors point to a release later this month, though, and many of you will want your fair share of root access. Luckily, there’s already a way to do this.

MoDaCo¬†‘s Paul O’Brien has put together “Superboot,” which is a computer program that installs a custom boot image onto your device (or device-to-be). Superboot makes rooting the Samsung Galaxy Nexus as easy as double clicking some buttons. No need to mess with codes, ADB or any other processes that may intimidate the common user.

It’s rare to see a device get root access ahead of its release, or even its release date announcement. Unless you’re a special person, you won’t be able to use this until later this month. Here it is, though! Just hit the source link to download Superboot, and you’ll be all set. Will you be rooting your Galaxy Nexus?
