FAQ

Q. After trying to revert to stock state(out of the box) my device is stuck in a bootloop?
A. Boot into recovery, wipe data/factory reset. Your prayers have beey answered

Q. After the tool flashes recovery, it doesnt seem to stick. why?
A. This is not an error with the tool or recovery, its just.. a nexus thing... :)
Flash it a few more times and eventually it will stick!

Q. Why is the file only 1.5 MB?
A. All files are stored on server and pulled only when needed with a utility

Q. Will the tool download all the files everytime i wanna perform an option?
A. No. it downloads the file once and detects that its already there the second time.

Q. Is this tool worth my time?
A. Who would think a 10 minute toolkit could hit the portal? ;)

Q. Are the drivers included?
A. Yes but no. the application downloads the drivers only if you want to install them via my tool

Q. Who's yo daddy?
A. Idk, son. ;)

Used the tool - now phone will not restart. It is stuck on the four colours that move about. Has been stuck on this now for about 5 minutes.

Any suggestions? I am able to get into twrp recovery no problems.

Also no he doesnt, the only thing that could cause this is the build.prop tweaks, whitch can be reverted by pushing the backup back to /system/ Aldo mine will Also include restore options soon

also people reading the article on the portal, the tool does not use fast flash commands, it uses the dd method for those flashes, when i add kernel flashing and backing up your device as .img files then i will be adding fastboot flash commands, so yes, the flashes occur when your device is booted!

ok cheers, no problem. Will wait for the new version to be up, no rush. Thanks for your commitment to provide a tool for us noobs/lazy people!

Would you recommend running your tool before first boot?

Just a few questions: when there is <waiting for device> for 5 minutes, that seems like my drivers are wrong? It was possible to unlock, but not to install a recovery, so i am trying to update my drivers...
And can i run the tool and select unlock, install recovery and root even when my device is already unlocked?

    I ended up using the cf tool for root. I'll deal with twrp later. I just needed it for titanium backup for now.

    wtf! tried reverting to stock and now im stuck on bootloop! wtf do I do?


    Guys if you did option 6 (Revert device to stock state) and once its finishes you are stuck at a bootloop on the animation screen then do this:

    If your phone is on the power it off.
    Press and hold Volume Down and now Power until the device powers on
    You will see the word Start.
    Press Volume Down twice to designate Recovery mode.
    Press Power to restart into Recovery mode. You will see an image of an Android robot with a red exclamation mark.
    Press Volume Up.
    Use the volume keys to scroll to "wipe data/factory reset" and press Power to select it.
    Scroll down to "Yes - erase all user data" and press Power to select it.

    That should do it.

    This tool automatically reboots after it flashes the custom recovery.

    Flash manually then :D

    fastboot flash recovery <recovery name here>.img


    Went through the process to unlock bootloader, install recovery and root. Phone is stuck on the Nexus logo color. Not loading at all. Tried option 6 to revert to stock the process finished and still stuck at logo screen. Tool kit installed CWM instead of TWRP. Anyway to start fresh? Anyway help appreciated.

    Ricky and I are working together on a new and improved toolkit that'll be released this weekend.
