issues with vroot
I dont think vroot is working but its hard to tell what part of the process isnt working. I followed the directions perfectly. But when i do the vroot part my phone doesn't reboot at all, I figured it said 2 more or less so i just went ahead with it. But then i get some issue with it not being able to disable knox. Tried again and it just seems to freeze up at the vroot part again. I have my phone on debugging. I plug it in allow debugging, and press root. it starts. I get the request to install the app which i allow, and nothing happens. I also installed the drivers. Just flash the nc5 tar file. not sure what is wrong.

Don't use vroot it installs chineseSU. The method this guy posted is unnecessary. Just use towel root

First off, You guys need to understand something, VROOT HAS NEVER BEEN PROVEN TO BE A SAFE ROOT METHOD. That being said, there are proven methods out, by trusted sources, to root. Chainfire and geohot have both released methods to root, pick the one for your device and enjoy.

I just tried towelroot on verizion i-545 and it says it it not allowed. "this action is never allowed." So, found you link downloaded software, and can't tell anything from all the chinese characters. I like the idea, but with the installer in chinese, it is impossible to know what is happening. Do you have one with some english Titles? Thanks, cc

this happen because play sytem files or build.prop file.
not matter for me if i used factory images from china or japan....iam not japaness or chiness.
my image was clean but only towel root dosen't work for me so i use the two programs...ok
vroot has been updated to work with kitkat if you have the latest version of it...but on some device may not work properly but it can push su file into /system/xbin....thank you.

Dude... pushing SU to /system/xbin is rooting, if you have SU in that location, you have root! And I just tested VRoot for kicks. It was unable to push the SU file on NC5.

It is quite possible towelroot V1 or V2 doesn't work on NC5. But V3 works on all NC5 phones.
