    I’d been having all sorts of trouble getting first the root, then CMW installed on my nexus. Even following your very clear instructions. Turns out it was my cheap USB cable that was the problem. After about an hour of mucking around I eventually swapped out my ebay cheapy cable for the OEM one that came with the Nexus and it all worked first time.

    Thought it might be a handy tip if someone else is having the same problem – Only use your original usb cable!

    You made a pretty important error in this tutorial.

    You need to type into the command prompt:

    adb reboot bootloader

    Don’t type in:

    adb reboot downloader
