I'd like concrete info about this as well. I want to have simple root for a while without recovery or ROM flashing and still get OTAs and I want to be sure I do it right.

I have done rooting and running custom roms in the past but with my shiny new device I am hoping to keep it as close to stock as possible with using root simply for customization and settings (Xposed installer for example).
It is important to me to have the latest updates as soon as possible with as little pain as possible. Could someone who understands this a little better than myself please explain exactly how OTA updates will be effected by this method.


Thank you for your help and sorry if the answer is staring me in the face, just seems to me that there is conflicting information.

Hi folks,

i have a question regarding the correct procedure of rooting. I will get my Nexus 5 tomorrow and want to root it right of the box. Is it better to do the OTA update, that comes with the system setup after booting it the first time and than to install root, or can i root it before first time boot? What i donĀ“t know - and that is why i ask: Will root stay persistent - even if an/the OTA update is coming? Which BusyBox do you prefer? Do i need one for Helium or Root Explorer?

Kindly regards,
Nico

after i used the tool, i've still the stock recovery or twrp or anything other recovery?

ask because i want to OTA-updates and this is only possible with the stock recovery afaik...
