No, commands are not needed. It's just to show the version and howto check if it worked.
This will not work if E5 is installed since you will flash the whole root filesystem.

I appreciate your good work on this. Unfortunately I'm in the US and still stuck on ND8. As a suggestion, since you're going to build this for new ROMs as they come out, could you start adding the last three letters/numbers of the ROM to your tar files?

Thx, already included version build for the E5 .tar uploading right now. The sad part is that the only "useful" way to use the root access right now is to get rid of the camera sounds

But if you need root access to your ND8 I can upload.

If you have easy access to ND8, that would be great. Otherwise I can wait for the newer builds to hit. I'll be upgrading as soon as I can anyway.
