1) Unlock bootloader (using adb)
2) (If you used adb you have drivers) double click run.bat on your computer when your phone's connected to your computer. This will root and put cwm and SU.
3) Now that you have cwm, put 5.0 in your sdcard
4) Flash via Aroma. Wipe data, cache, and dalvik.
5) Reboot and flash glados if you want.
