Default [ROOT] 4.4.2 Working one-click

Let me start by saying: I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THIS!!

I stumbled upon this thread, and thought we could use it.

I can verify this method. I just used it on my device.

Enjoy.

You're welcome.

To further the ease of life, TWRP installation is just as simple!

AGAIN: **I TAKE NO CREDIT FOR DEVELOPING THIS** Just finding it. .

Once you root with the above method, go to

Install AutoRec from the link above.. And.. Happy flashing.

Again, you're welcome.

This root method was patched before it was even released...so if you want to keep root be sure not to take any ota/security updates until methods to gain root on newer firmware's are found...works for now but future updates will put us right back to square 1

i just did this on my new KK g2, already had 4.4.2 on it when i got it friday and i asked this question in another thread, but didnt get a response. so this method of rooting will not keep us from getting future OTAs but will more than likely loose root, is that what you are saying? and that this method may not work on say 4.4.3 or 4.4.4 (which just hit the nexus 5)?

but will more than likely loose root... correct, but there are apk's that can prevent it

and that this method may not work on say 4.4.3 or 4.4.4... correct

Duties otas will probably beak root, yes.. And threes methods may not work.. But, who's saying that 4.4.3 comes to the G2, as it just saw 4.4.2.

4.5 is right around the corner..

Just to confirm i'm understanding this correctly, if i just install these two APKs i'd have root access and a recovery on my phone? I'm currently on Android 4.2.2.
Any reason not to do it in this manner, or a more recommended way of doing it?
