I should of mentioned that I went back to total stock then OTA'd. So I;m not rooting anymore. I think to use any of those link you still have to be rooted.

I may be wrong but I may be stuck for while until rooting the stock NC5 is figured out

The funny thing is I read that a lot of the updaters are having battery issues.The funny thing is that since the upgrade my battery usage has been very good. Typically with 4.3, I was at 64% with the screen stat. With the KK I'm at 34%.. Besides being in the power saving mode, I am using 2 apps I never used before too- Super Task Killer and a Sense V2 Flip clock a weather clock widget. Still using Clean Master because you don't have to be rooted.


Thanks

You can go back to MK2 and get root back. The following post has three peeps saying they have done it after taking the OTA nc5 update. They used Surge1223's method to downgrade.
References to this start on page 62.
