Default Nexus Root Toolkit v1.6.3



Quote:
VERSION 1.6.3 - This program will automatically bring together all the files you need to unlock and root your device in a few clicks, or flash it back to stock and re-lock it. You can also use this program to backup/restore all your important data, flash zips, set file permissions, push and pull files, install apps, generate logcats/bugreports, and much more! With the included file association options, you can perform tasks like flashing zips, installing apps, restoring android backup files, and flashing/booting img files with just a double click! The program includes a full featured interface for automating tasks in TWRP, enhanced restore features, an in-built auto-updater/notification system, ‘any build’ mode, and quick tools utilities. All the latest Android builds and Nexus devices are now officially supported with full 4.2.2 support. The program intelligently and selectively downloads the files it needs for your device and makes sure you are using the latest files available. The main changes in this release are some new features in the advanced utilities gui (like a logcat/bugreport generation interface, adb sideload button, and restore stock kernel script), dynamic informational tooltips throughout the entire program, major changes to the in-built updater system plus the option to check for multiple devices/builds on startup. Check out the updated changelog for a more comprehensive breakdown of the feature set in this release.

You have all three?

I like to keep up my skills with the command line, but sometimes the kits can come in handy.

No, I wish. I used to have the 7 now I just have the 10. The pics are from a dev who had them rooted before they were even on sale.

I would really like to get the 7. I had a hard time deciding on whether to get the 10 or 7. Came down to specs...I think that the 10 will be better down the stretch. Now that I see there are hidden LTE radios in the 4, I might have to look into that to replace my GNex (if the radios are actually functional...fingers crosses).

The process of unlocking the bootloader is what wipes the device. Actually installing a custom recovery and rooting the device does not. I would suggest backing up any data that you already have on the device first. Once you have unlocked the bootloader, you do not have to worry about wiping the data.

ill unlock the bootloader before i do anything with it then im golden. On the other hand if i never want to install custom roms i could just root and be done without losing a thing.

Just remember to use something like titanium backup or app2zip to backup any apps that you would like to reinstall.
