Can you please make the instructions more clear. I'm a noob and never rooted or unlocked bootloader on anything so I have no idea what chmod is lol.
I downloaded the file then ran it, then it said this is not a nexus device :(. I have my nexus player plugged in and the latest drivers are installed. Help would be great, thanks! :]

If I'm reading the script correctly, it doesn't install TWRP for the Nexus Player yet.
Other than that, I like the simplicity of this.

@OathYvne I can certainly try! I don't own the Nexus Player, as I'm a broke college student, but try this:
Connect your device, open a terminal window, and run these commands:
For a Mac:
Code:
~/Nexus-Multitool/all/tools/mac-adb shell getprop ro.product.model
~/Nexus-Multitool/all/tools/mac-adb shell getprop ro.product.name
For Linux:
Code:
~/Nexus-Multitool/all/tools/linux-i386-adb shell getprop ro.product.model
~/Nexus-Multitool/all/tools/linux-i386-adb shell getprop ro.product.name
And paste the results here! this helps me figure out what google calls these devices exactly, so I can get them to work properly
@LecheConCarnie It doesn't install TWRP, as TWRP doesn't exist for the Nexus Player! Or the Nexus Q for that matter. :p

I'm getting lost somewhere along the way when using this tool. When I attempt to unlock the bootloader, the nexus player isn't giving me the option to accept. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

When you're installing drivers (in Windows), you need to do one for adb and you'll need another for fastboot. Each needs to be done with your device in that specific mode. So, get the NP in the bootloader and then add the fastboot driver in your device manager.

Sorry, forgot to specify I was using Ubuntu. Ended up using Windows and finally got fastball to work it no adb , lol. Oh well, did what I needed to do.

What am I doing wrong if I try to root my nexus player (running 5.1) and your script is telling me that this is not a nexus device? Used Windows 8 btw.

Hi !

I try your script v0.11 for my nexus 9 under Ubuntu 14.04 64bit . Sadly, I got the following error :
Code:
Connecting to device and reading device information.
./Nexus-Multitool-v0.11.sh: ligne 102: /home/lames/Nexus-Multitool/all/tools/linux-i386-adb: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type

./Nexus-Multitool-v0.11.sh: ligne 109: /home/lames/Nexus-Multitool/all/tools/linux-i386-adb: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type

This is not a Nexus device. This utility only supports Nexus devices.

Press [Enter] to exit the script.
Have got any idea why ?

I seem to be stuck in a loop. I am on OS X 10.9.5, and have the latest xcode for that version installed and have installed the command line utilities. The problem is that the script doesn't seem to be detecting the installed versions as running it results in a request to install these things again and again.
