Root L

Instructions:
Note, you must have drivers properly installed and make sure your adb recognizes your phone with "fastboot devices"

1. Plug your device into PC and put it into fastboot mode!
2. If you haven't unlocked your bootloader then this will and it will entirely wipe your device!
3. After your bootloader is unlocked, phone will boot cf-autoroot, big red android icon will appear on your screen, wait for it to finish.
4. Reboot, done!

if you are already unlocked you can just run the following command in fastboot:

fastboot boot CF-Auto-Root-mako-occam-nexus4.img

just make sure you extract the img first and it should work.

noob here..
Ok so the updated CF auto root has patched kernel or just some patches to fix se linux and other patches to enable root..??

Im asking this because the CF auto root is based on KOT49H so will the kernel be replaced by patched kernel from KOT49H??

Chainfire updated the tool. Even if it says it's for version 4.4.4 he's updated it for 5.0. It does alter the kernel to set SELinux to permissible but don't worry about the alterations as it is made for 5.0.

No. 5.0 uses ART as the new runtime which isn't yet compatible with Xposed.

Does it wipe data if the bootloader is already unlocked?
