Root Toolkit for Android M

Download the Toolkit here.



For Step 1 - 1.2 you need to boot into Fastboot Mode.

For Step 2 & 3 you need to boot into your recovery and adb sideload.

For Step 4 you need to enable USB DEBUGGING.

1. You must flash TWRP or CWM Recovery via Fastboot or the Nexus Root Toolkit.

3. Download the latest Kernel Patch from here
4. Put the files on your internal storage
5. Boot into your recovery then press "install zip from sd card"
6. As first flash SuperSU and then the Kernel Patch.
7. Boot up your phone normally then install BusyBox.

1- no you shouldn't use a toolkit. If you need a toolkit you shouldn't be flashing a developer preview

2- there isn't just despair kernel. There is also code blue and hellscore which all offer different features

3- flashing the kernel first is probably the better way around

Not being rude. But just giving you some info you are possibly unaware of

Is there a reason why we shouldn't use a toolkit? I've never had any problems. I've flashed images both ways and I can't tell the difference only that the toolkit is great.

Nothing wrong with using a toolkit.
I'm on M and flashed with Wugfresh.

Flashed Twrp using adb / fastboot via cmd line

Toolkits really aren't needed with Nexus devices since it is ridiculously easy to complete common tasks with adb, fastboot and your recovery.

Newcomers to the Nexus 5 are better off learning to use adb and fastboot since they will be better prepared to fix their device should something go wrong.

Horses for courses. I know I'd o ly ever use a toolkit by Wugfresh as it's never let me down ever. There are bad toolkits out there, which is the problem. People use them and don't know the basic principles of flashing images.
We don't all start with nexus. Some phones are a pain to root and if a toolkit does it OK. Hopefully then The bug to learn has taken root, literally.
No one who is not a Dev should be flashing this and making toolkits so noobs can is irresponsible at best. Its not stable. Its not meant for daily use, especially by noobs. Lollipop has only just been sorted out. Stick with that.
I'd like to see this closed as people are going to brick their phones
