NOTE2: 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 which is why I switched to BitDefender which is much better.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PUBLIC (FREE) AND PROFESSIONAL (DONATE) VERSIONS?
THE PUBLIC VERSION OF THE TOOLKIT INCLUDES EVERYTHING YOU COULD NEED TO MANIPULATE YOUR DEVICE. NOTHING IS RESTRICTED.
ACTIVATING THE PROFESSIONAL VERSION ADDS THE MOST USEFUL FUNCTION IN THE TOOLKIT, THE ABILITY TO CHECK FOR ‘AUTO UPDATES’ DIRECTLY VIA THE TOOLKIT AND HAVE THEM PUSHED TO YOUR PC RIGHT AWAY AS SOON AS THEY ARE UPLOADED WITHOUT NEEDING TO DOWNLOAD THE WHOLE TOOLKIT EVERY TIME. YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE LATEST VERSION AS SOON AS IT IS MADE AVAILABLE. THIS MEANS SMALLER UPDATES CAN BE SENT OUT MORE FREQUENTLY, SUCH AS ADDING A SINGLE FUNCTION, FIXING A BUG OR ADDING COMPATIBILITY FOR A SINGLE CARRIER. THE SMALLER UPDATES WILL BE COMPILED AND RELEASED TO THE XDA COMMUNITY AS A FULL (PUBLIC) DOWNLOAD VERSION SO PROFESSIONAL VERSIONS ARE ALWAYS UPDATED SOONER.
THE ‘EXTRAS’ SECTION WILL CONTAIN BROWSER TIPS, GENERAL TIPS, KEYBOARD TIPS, MARKET TIPS, SCREEN TIPS, SECURITY TIPS AND SETTINGS TIPS AS WELL AS A FEW TRICKS YOU CAN DO WITH YOUR DEVICE.
THE ‘QUICK PICKS’ SECTION ALLOWS YOU TO PROGRAM UPTO 10 SLOTS WITH TASKS THAT YOU MAY PERFORM ON A REGULAR BASIS OR JUST WANT TO KEEP A SET OF TASKS IN 1 PLACE. THEN JUST SELECT THE SLOT AND IT WILL REMEMBER ALL YOUR SETTINGS FOR THAT TASK AND RUN IT.
AUTO REPLY LINKS FOR PAYPAL AND GOOGLE CHECKOUT TO GET A CODE INSTANTLY CAN BE FOUND AT http://goo.gl/nyGqv
AUTO UPDATES ARE BY FAR THE EASIEST WAY TO KEEP THE TOOLKITS UP TO DATE AS I HAVE LOTS OF OTHER TOOLKITS TO LOOK AFTER. IF ANYONE HAS ANY VIEWS ON THIS PLEASE PM ME OR CONTACT ME AT TOOLKIT.SUPPORT@SKIPSOFT.NET. PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR VIEWS IN THIS THREAD AS I WANT TO KEEP IT CLEAN FOR USER SUPPORT.

(Changelog at the Bottom of Post#1)
PLEASE READ THE *FAQ* IN POST#2 BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS
1. INSTALLING ADB/FASTBOOT DRIVERS
The first thing you need to do is to install the adb/fastboot drivers. These are needed so that you can unlock your bootloader, root your phone and flash CWM (ClockworkMod) Recovery.
THE DRIVERS CAN NOW BE INSTALLED DIRECTLY VIA THE TOOLKIT. OPTION 1 IN THE MAIN MENU.
IF YOU HAVE ANY TROUBLE WITH THE TOOLKIT INSTALLING THE DRIVERS PLEASE POST IN THIS THREAD WITH YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION AND ERROR MESSAGE.
a. If you dont want to use the ToolKit to install the drivers then the best best drivers to try are PdaNet for Android, download and run the 32-bit Windows 7/Vista/XP or 64-bit Windows 7/Vista and follow the instructions to install (selecting Samsung as your device manufacturer if asked).
You can remove pdanet for Android from your phone and pc at a later time without removing the drivers.
b. After the drivers have been installed disconnect the usb cable and shut down your phone. Keep holding the ‘Volume Up’ and ‘Volume Down’ buttons and press the ‘Power’ button to boot the phone into FastBoot Mode.
c. Goto your Control Panel on your PC and open the Device Manager. You want this open so you can see the FastBoot driver is installed or so you can install it manually.
d. Connect the usb cable. In the Device Manager a new item called ‘Android 1.0’ should pop up and then the 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.
MAKE SURE YOU ENABLE USB DEBUGGING IN SETTINGS, DEVELOPER OPTIONS BEFORE CONNECTING THE USB CABLE IN ADB MODE SO THAT THE PC CAN DETECT THE PHONE PROPERLY.
Note 1: If the driver doesnt install automatically then double click on the Android 1.0 item, 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.
Note 2: If you are still having problems setting up the fastboot drivers then have a read of *THIS* guide which may help you.
Note 3: Samsung Verizon Drivers can be downloaded *HERE*. These drivers will most probably only work on LTE devices.
Note 4: Sprint users may have better luck downloading drivers from *HERE* (click on ‘See All Downloads’ then select ‘Software’ at the bottom) if you cant get the automatic drivers to work from the ToolKit.
2. USING MSKIPS’ GALAXY NEXUS TOOLKIT
a. Download the Galaxy Nexus ToolKit package and install the ToolKit to your PC. The installation will create a Shortcut on your desktop called ‘Galaxy Nexus ToolKit’ for easy access. You have the option to include or exclude the drivers files at installation so if you already have your drivers set up and are just updating the ToolKit then you can untick the drivers if you wish.
b. Once the ToolKit is installed make sure your phone is booted and plugged in via USB cable and double click on the shortcut on your desktop to run it.
c. You will be asked if you want to check for an Update. If you type ‘yes’ this will download and check the latest version numbers against the versions in the ToolKit. If there is an update available then you will have the option to download and install it (professional feature).
d. You will now be presented with a Model Selection Screen to choose the Model/Build that you are currently on. Type the number that corresponds to your desired selection. For example type ’17’ for GSM MODEL [YAKJU] 4.2.2 [Build JDQ39]. If you cannot find the build your device is using then type ‘h’ to select the HELP option to get more info.
NOTE: If you have a new build that isnt covered by the Toolkit you can also type ‘a’ in the Model Selection screen to see instructions on how to pull your stock image and send it to email@example.com so support can be added.
e. The Toolkit will now locate and download the image pack for your chosen Model. This is a new feature so the Toolkit is not limited to how many Models can be added and it cuts down ALOT on the download size. After the zip file has finished downloading it will be extracted to the correct folders and the files checked to make sure everything is ok. If you cannot download the pack via the Toolkit then you can download it manually from http://goo.im/devs/mskip/toolkit/gal…us/model_files and extract the files to your installation folder.
f. When you enter the Main Menu you will see ‘Adb Mode’ and ‘Fastboot Mode’ at the top. If you have installed your drivers correctly then you will see your devices serial number under the text with ‘device’ next to it for the mode you are in. If you see this then your device is connected and you can carry on.
NOTE: If you haven’t installed the drivers and don’t see a serial number at the top then this is the FIRST thing you want to do so the Toolkit can operate properly. You may need to do this in adb and fastboot mode.
g. Each option in the ToolKit has full information on what it is and how to use it.
3. FLASHING A ROM, RADIO OR KERNEL VIA CWM RECOVERY
a. Download your chosen Rom, Radio or Kernel from the Development Forum, then make sure your phone is booted up as normal and connect your usb cable so it goes into MTP Mode. Copy the .zip file (DO NOT UNZIP IT FIRST) to the ‘Internal Storage’ part on your phone. Do not copy it to a Sub Directory as it will be harder to find when flashing it.
b. Enter CWM Recovery by first entering the Fastboot mode Screen (Disconnect the usb cable (if you have one plugged in), then shut down your phone. Keep holding the ‘Volume Up’ and ‘Volume Down’ buttons and press the ‘Power’ button to boot the phone into FastBoot Mode), then select ‘Recovery mode’ by pressing the ‘Volume Down’ button and then press the ‘Power’ button to enter CMW Recovery.
You can also enter Recovery by downloading Rom Manager (free from the Market) which gives you the option to reboot to Recovery.
c. Scroll down to ‘Install zip from sdcard’ and select. Then select ‘choose zip from sdcard’.
d. Scroll to your Roms’ zip file and select. Then scroll down to ‘Yes’ in the list and select to start flashing the Rom.
e. When flashing is finished select ‘Go Back’ until you get to the Main Menu and then select ‘reboot system now’ to reboot your phone into Android.
How to get into your FastBoot Mode
1. Turn your phone off
2. Unplug your usb cable if you have one plugged in
3. Keep holding the ‘Volume Up’ and ‘Volume Down’ buttons and press the ‘Power’ button to boot the phone into FastBoot Mode
How to get into ClockworkMod Recovery
1. First boot into FastBoot Mode as described above
2. Scroll down with the ‘Volume Down’ button until it says ‘Recovery mode’ at the top and press the ‘Power’ button to enter Recovery
Show the Menu in the Stock Recovery Screen
1. Hold the Power button and keep holding as you press the Volume Up button. The blue recovery menu screen should pop up.
