Awesome news, my N6 should b arriving this week. What root method does this tool use? Custom kernel or is it using the SuperSU 2.27beta?

Custom kernel. I think it is the better option in the long run because google can easily patch the method that Chainfire uses now. The kernel method, however, is very unlikely to be patched. This will patch whatever kernel you want to use though, so you'll be fine!

Sweet! Just wondering, do you think it would be possible to bundle in a decryption feature as well?

Not really original development

According to XDA it is! :p The "Original elements": Device decryption for N6 and N9, supports every single Nexus device, offers a ROM installer for compatible devices, etc.

The following are most likely “Original Development”:

*Official releases of highly original and upstream custom ROMs (built from the ground up with significant original development within them
*Official releases/development of such original ROMs, perhaps posted by the maintainer or their nominated person.
*A significant “first” in development for a device. Significant is subjective, but it is likely something which took considerable time/effort, and is generally accepted by developers to be significant and non-trivial.
*Kernels which are built with beneficial changes that are not simply pulled from other kernels already available. Some element of original work is expected.
*Tools and utilities with a clear purpose, and which are well-made, and useful to users. They should have an element of originality, either in purpose or through significant improvement in the means of operation.
*Significant port of a ROM from one device to another, giving enhanced features or functionality to users of the target device. The port should be beneficial (a port from two virtually identical devices isn’t original development, it’s winzipping, and nobody really benefits from this, as it’s not development)

Ive still never fully grasped how to use adb on Mac. Ive got the file downloaded and on my desktop and have terminal cd'd to the file correctly and when I enter "chmod +x Nexus-Multitool.sh" it tells me there is no such file or directory...any help is appreciated.

    Easiest way:
    1: Open terminal.
    2: Type in 'chmod 755 ' (Without quotes, and with a space at the end!)
    3: Click and drag the Nexus-Multitool-v0.11.sh into the terminal window
    4: Hit enter
    5: To run, just click and drag the file into the terminal window and hit enter.
