A sim. They were free for a good while during the last couple months. I'd imagine they would do it again soon.

Nexus Root Toolkit I always use it, it's easy but like other said there's others way to root/unroot.

The last one click i used unlocked bootloader and installed custom recovery and superuser without me doing anything but downloading drivers and connecting phone to computer.

What do you need a "one-click method" for the Nexus 5? The Nexus has to be the easiest device on the planet to root. Unlock the bootloader, install TWRP/CWM, flash the SuperSU binary. The hardest part is installing the SDK and drivers on your PC, which you have to do if you want to mod your device anyway, and even so it isn't that hard. Save a kitten.
