Default Time issue after rooting

Hi,

I've tried searching for this but no luck. After I root my Nexus 5 the time on it is not showing correctly unless I set it manually but if I do this some apps Lync won't work because the time is not right. Is there a fix for this or is just a collateral effect of the rooting process?

Thanks in advance.

Did you reboot? There's no way that rooting should mess the time up

Yes I've rebooted several times, if I check the option for automatic time it sets the clock to 3:07 AM (just tested). It was working fine before the root.

Hmm this makes no sense. Again there's no way that rooting a phone should mess up the time. I would almost say do a factory reset but hold off to see if Anyone else has any ideas

Yeah, it doesnt make any sense. Well I think I will unroot and see if that fixes it.

Thanks anyway.

Well, I unroot and locked bootloader. After reboot clock still shows 4 hrs less so I turned it off and remove the SIM card reboot and put the SIM back in and it was fixed. So I thought it was only an issue with the SIM so I re-root and did the same with the SIM but this time didn't work so apparently the root or the unlocking of the bootloader is causing that problem with the clock. Hope you can help me.

Are you sure your network sets the time anyway? Many don't.
