There is no root for the ota, nc5. There are already threads in the general section about this update that answers this question several times.

so I looked at your link and seems like some people are struggling so I haven't tried it yet. Are we any closer to a simple root. I don't necessarily need to install a recovery just want root. And by the way thanks for posting the link.

You may be out of luck.
The method is easy but it will wipe your phone.
There is a chance yo could be waiting for a looong time.

Try towel root, it worked on my nc5, only problem is that the bootloader is locked so I cannot flash roms
Simply search "towelroot apk" and you should find a link to xda or to towelroot.com
