Need Help rooting Nexus 5
Can someone please give me a simple guide on how to root the nexus 5? I've been seeing a lot of tutorials, but none of them give off updated replies.
@DankSouls Wat's your Android number? Is it still Marshmellow of Nougat?
It's on Android version 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
@Cal-SuperSU as what Ive typed in, ive read numerous forum articles and such but they are all blurry to me, can you please help me?
@DankSouls Alright no problem bro. Tell me where you are stuck on:
- Bootloader unlocked?
- USB debug started?
- Have TWRP?
- Installed TWRP?
- Installed SuperSU?
@Cal-SuperSU Ive started the USB debug part, but I absolutely have no idea about the bootloader and TWRP. the links were vauge. sorry I havent replied earlier. I fell asleep while waiting for a reply. again sorry.
@DankSouls OK I see. Then I would recommend you CF-Auto Root, written by the author of SuperSU for new rooters. Basically you can download this on your computer, do a few click, and the software will root for you.
Here is the main site:
(Control+F to search for Nexus 5, it's in the very bottom, codename "hammerhead")
If you wanna know what the software does, go to this thread:
I hope this can help, good luck!
@Cal-SuperSU Thank you, Ill do that right now.
@Cal-SuperSU Ive downloaded it. and tried opening the root-windows.bat and followed the instructions, which are setting your phone to boot mode and plugging it in to your computer. but it says something different when i hit enter..
@DankSouls it doesnt wait for my phone. it automatically sends a message. saying we are now attempting to boot your phone.
The only way you can also do you have any of
@DankSouls Sry I didn't get back to you earlier, so did it work? Or it also stuck on somewhere?
@Akkash1105 And I just noticed you haven't unlocked the bootloader. If you still haven't done that, it can be done in the settings --- OEM unlock
