Introduction

This kit is designed to update Stock rooted Nexus 5 devices to Android 4.4.4 while retaining all user data as well as root permissions. This will also work on non-rooted devices with an unlocked Bootloader.


Before you Start

# This kit is designed to update without wipe but anything is possible, so I strongly urge you
to back up all data. Also I am not liable for any lost information.

# Please configure all ADB drivers

# Place phone in Fastboot mode. Power down the device; (Press and hold Power + Volume Down)
until the device boots into Fastboot.

# Extract all files, open the Unfathomable EXE file in the provided folder and follow the prompts Carefully.

Instructions

Run the EXE. After your device reboots, boot your Nexus into recovery. TWRP recovery should boot. Select the reboot option and reboot system.
You will be prompted "Swipe to flash SuperSU". This will restore all Root permissions.
*Also in the event that your device is stuck in a bootloop, just wipe the cache and you should be good to go!

Got to be one of the slowest downloads for such a small file in the history of man.

Painful to say the least.

For me, almost half a gig is something other than small.

And you're complaining in the OP's thread, why? Blame Dev-Host not them. Lol.

With all do respect to opinions I would greatly appreciate if this thread is used for and remains a hub for questions and support. With that being said I have taken the liberty of uploading the file into XDA's server for downloading. Please respect my wishes as I have taken my own personal time to provide the community with this tool and many more to come. Thank you all! If you have any concerns, feedback or need support please feel free to contact me at UnfathomableDev@gmail.com.

It's a good idea but a little long winded when you can just flash a rooted stock ROM.zip via recovery.
