Im sure some of you have not been able to get your windows 7 box to recognize your GNex while in fastboot mode. To do this you will have to follow these steps

1)Download and extract file
2) Place your device in Fastboot
3) Connect to your PC
4) Rt click on Computer
5) Select Manage
6) Select Devices
7) You should see Android 1.0 and a little yellow triangle
8) Rt click and update drivers
9)Browse Computer for Driver softare and navigate to where you extracted the above file and click ok.
10) You should now be able to see your device in fastboot and unlock your device.

Thank you very much! Just in time! :lift

Also, for those getting the missing adpwinapi.dll error please read this SDK note:

"The adb tool has moved to platform-tools/

If you don't see this directory in your SDK,
launch the SDK and AVD Manager (execute the android tool)
and install "Android SDK Platform-tools"

Please also update your PATH environment variable to
include the platform-tools/ directory, so you can
execute adb from any location."

I did not bother to update the path, but 'fastboot oem unlock' was still successful.

I will try this tonight. I have tried everything to get my computer to see my phone while trying to unlock it. I am using Wugs Gnex tool. It sees it until it fastboots and then goes nuts.

I am running Windows XP business edition. And it has been a pain in the butt. I am going to try it on my daughters Win 7 machine tonight and see if I have any better luck. It takes forever for the samsung drivers to download.
