Hi Everyone, I am Pushkar Dua just wanted to share a rooting guide for Nexus 5 Android 5.0.1

As many people Reported that Root has stopped working after the 5.0.1 Update or previous Binaries lead device to Boot Loop,

Please Download Latest Binaries That i am providing here:

And flash it with TWRP recovery..
Please Use TWRP Version as people reported some problems in latest version.
Downlaload TWRP

Please note: if you're having a problem with twrp asking for password..
Please use twrp
just reboot to system and you will have root access..

Since you've probably lost your custom recovery upgrading to 5.0.1, you can grab the TWRP images for Nexus 5 here:

I believe you need to use since either doesn't work or is causing problems for many users.

Isn't CF-Auto root adding files from the 5.0 release over the 5.0.1 ? Isn't it safer to wait for a 5.0.1 autoroot?
