I put together a one-click root in CASUAL format. Because it's in CASUAL format, the same Java JAR will work on Windows, Linux and Mac.

This package contains
  • root your device without unlocking/wiping.
  • install busybox without unlocking/wiping.
  • install Clockwork Mod Recovery for GSM or CDMA without unlocking/wiping.

Download and Instructions
CASUAL is easy to use, and fairly self explanitory.
  1. Launch the downloaded application using Java with right-click-open, or from a command line: "java -jar GalaxyNexus.jar"
  2. Select "Galaxy Nexus root"
  3. Click the "Do It' button
  4. Optionally: Repeat the previous step with "Install Busybox" option selected to install Busybox.
  5. Optionally: Select Install Galaxy Nexus CDMA or GSM ClockWork Mod Recovery

Download Galaxy Nexus Root and Busybox
Ensure you have Java Installed on your computer. Do you have java?
