I would like to root my Nexus 5 and wanted to know if there's a way to do so without unlocking the bootloader. My version is 4.4.2.
I recently came across the toolkit by wugfresh and I saw you could root the device separately - is it possible to root the device without unlocking using this toolkit?
Next time post questions in Q&A.
1. Don`t use Toolkits as sooner or later you will run into trouble and you will not be able to fix it.
2, Rooting without unlocking the bootloader is impossible on the N5.
3. Read the first 5 threads in the General section well, then you know the basics that will prevent you from bricking your device.
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue
