Nexus 6 - CF Auto Root

First Confirmed Root

Auto root seems to have worked for me. However, I didn't see the red android but the script text was there. After install, my device rebooted three times ... which was weird.
I would be freaking out over the possibility of bricking it so soon :eek:
First verification of working, with three reboots, hopefully that's normal.

Thanks for being the guinea pig bro, tbh I'm afraid to root until a few folks confirm but thanks. Everything working? Tested any root apps etc?

So we have to fastboot flash zip "filename".zip ?
I get this error:
writing zip...
<Bootloader> Permission denied
FAILED <remote failure>

Can we flash it from the recovery?

Nice! What is Authenticator ?
Google Authenitcator is an app for 2-step verification to google services and other applications that hook into the authenitcator API like Facebook or Last Pass.

Did you unzip the autoroot files to a folder on your desktop, put your Nexus 6 in bootloader and run the extracted bat file?

I'm curious what rooting at the moment gains us. A few apps? Xposed doesn't work(yet). But for The moment I don't really have a huge urge to root. I will however unlock immediately. In case I'd like to root.

Besides titanium, what apps can we use?
