Updated and rooted

There were two things I didn't like about my Android.
  1. Since it is a Galaxy Nexus bought via Bell it didn't get updated by Google but by Bell. In other words there is already 4.0.4 but I still had 4.0.1
  2. I didn't have it rooted yet.
Took care of both things today. First I followed these instructions to get the official Google Android:

After that I used the Galaxy Nexus Root Toolkkit to root my phone. 

Only bad thing is that I had to reinstall all my apps. I did a backup of my data first but I probably forgot something.

But so far I am a happy camper ...
