NEXUS 10 TOOLKIT V1.0.0 at XDA
Added to ATR Guide.
Thanks I'm going to be adding some things as they come in also. Still waiting on WugFresh's toolkit and a hundred roms.
Awesome! I'll add them to the ATR Guide.
His newer, more refined version of the toolkit is now out. Seems to have ironed out the bugs in the first version.
This toolkit worked perfectly! No issue on my end. Took less than 10 minutes.
I looked at the toolkit and under the rooting section there are several options..how do you know which option to choose as if I remember right, there were not so many choices when I did my Nexus 7?
Good question. I too have an interest in which option may be best.
Are you referring to the rooting section inside the toolkit or the root section in this forum? If you meant the toolkit there are multiple steps that have to be performed in order. I personally ran all of the following...
step 1 - which installs the proper drivers
step 3 - unlocks the bootloader (will wipe your SD!)
step 4 - root the device and installs the SuperSU app
step 6 - flash recovery. I prefer the TWRP option.
step 7 - install busybox. (really don't know much about this but its on all my rooted devices.)
Take the time to read all of the instructions before selecting each option and it should go smoothly!! Save all your SD card stuff beforehand if you have anything you want to keep.
After performing all of those steps I immediately booted into TWRP and made a backup of my stock rooted ROM.
The one thing I didn't understand about the toolkit was option 2 - "backup and restore your device" because at step 2 the device is not yet rooted.
I use his tool kits for both my SIII and Nexus 7. He is an amazing developer indeed!
I just used the toolkit. Once I figured out the root option I wanted to do, it took no time at all! And it didnt even wipe my device.
Did those of you who used this kit to root end up doing a factory reset anyway? Or have you not had any of the usual post-root problems?
What a great toolkit. Finally took the plunge and unlocked, rooted and installed a custom recovery using the 1click option from the toolkit. Everything went smoothly and took 5-10minutes at most.
Now I am a happy camper
Chip did you follow the steps as Droid Junkey stated above or did you do it another way?
Do you notice any performance increase after your rooting progress?
The steps I followed were:
1. Install Drivers
2. Step 8 (I believe) 1-click unlock, root, install recovery.
3. Booted into recovery and backed up everything.
Easy as pie and no glitches,smooth running. Now I will probably try out the AOKP rom.
