To clarify , this will not be able to install a recovery like twrp or CM if it was ota'ed to 5.1.1 without having been done before the update.. just for people that did that prior to 5.1.1 right?
Im on 5.1.1 updated outta the box.. no way to install a rom right?

yes that is correct 5.1.1 still has a locked down bootloader. but if we find a work around it will be added to the tool.

Just too a look at your script.

Note: the OTA block wont work for 5.1.1 bootloader devices if the device has been rebooted as the shell doesn't start as root without the fastboot oem cmd.

You can however do

adb shell
su
<pm etc etc etc>

after it has been rooted with the script.

We can not "install" twrp or any recovery regardless of the FireOS version (5.0, 5.0.1, 5.1.1). We could only temporarily load our recovery into memory (5.0 & 5.0.1). Need a pc each time you want to load one of our recoveries.
