Unlocking, rooting, relocking and unrooting simplified! (and much more!)

VERSION 2.1.4 - This program will automatically bring together all the files you need to unlock and root your device in a few clicks, or flash it back to stock and re-lock it. You can also use this program to backup/restore all your important data, flash zips, set file permissions, push and pull files, install apps, generate logcats/bugreports, and much more! With the included file association options, you can perform tasks like flashing zips, installing apps, restoring android backup files, and flashing/booting img files with just a double click! The program includes a full featured interface for automating tasks in TWRP, enhanced restore features, an in-built auto-updater/notification system, ‘any build’ mode, advanced restore features,’NRT- Live Log’ for viewing the adb/fastboot cmds that are run in the background, quick tools utilities, and tools for taking screenshots/screen-recordings. All the latest official Android builds and Nexus devices are supported. The program intelligently and selectively downloads the files it needs for your device and makes sure you are using the latest files available. The program can even auto-detect your device and build. This release brings full Marshmallow root support plus all automated features by utilizing a new system that no longer requires modified boot.imgs. Check out the updated changelog for a more comprehensive breakdown of the feature set and changes in this release.

~ my goal for this project is make the entire process as smooth and simple as possible ~

I'm going to try this. I didn't have much luck using the other one-click out there. But this kit can restore to stock, so I'll do that and try this rooting stuff all over again.

everything works great except, I'm not going through with the root. I get stuck on fastboot mode with a message at the top saying "Booting downloaded image". But no action happens. fastboot is frozen and my computer has a message "Waiting for your device to finish booting up..."

Any idea what's going on? The kit worked really well unlocking and locking and restoring stock

I tried all of this on both 4.1 and 4.1.1 and get the same stuck screen results on the root feature, regardless of flashing CWM or not, just plain frozen

Ok. That is strange. Add me on gchat and hit me up and I will try my best to troubleshoot with you to find out the cause of your problem.

Does this work with the new 4.1.1 on nexus 7?
Sent from my HTC Vision using xda app-developers app

Man, that was quick.. I thought I was up to date.. lol.. development is never ending. I will push an update out asap. Looks like I need an updated Superuser. Can you do me a favor and try flashing this in Temp CWM recovery;

Edit.. I just realized that you phrased that as a question. Try it out. It should work. No harm in trying. I included the latest SuperSU in the toolkit, and had success with it. So go for it.

Cheers

Same error here... Did you reach any resolution?

He did not get back at me, but maybe you can help me. Can you try replacing the modified boot.img in the toolkits data directory with this one instead: http://wug.rootxs.com/modified_boot_nakasi_4.1_JRN84D.img

So by default, you would place it here:
Code:
C:\Wugs_NexusRootToolkit.v1.5\data\modified_boot_nakasi_4.1_JRN84D.img

And then retrying the process. If that is it, I am going to feel very silly.

Same thing :(

Will head back to ADB method as I actually need Root right now, but will try and help later if I have time and it hasn't been resolved yet.

I would really appreciate your help when you are available. I would like to get the resolved asap. My gchat is wugfresh at gmail, that would be the best way to figure this out if you have the time. I am certain the solution is simple. Thank you for your help so far.

Never mind.. I am pretty sure I know what the problem is. I will post up version 1.5.1 later today.

Cool, will definitely confirm if your fix works, will do a guide for the blog/YT and would rather use your guide than ADB since newcomers won't cope with ADB.

Anyone have a mirror? Current one is down.

It's down because the new version is up. ;) Check the OP. Once I heard you guys having trouble here I knew something was up, so I have been at it all morning and got a fix now. Version 1.5.1 just released. Such an epic fail of a mistake, so small.. yet screwed up my whole root script. Now everything should work properly. :) Let me know if any of you still have problems.

Cool. Thank you! I am pretty certain everything works now. I agree, sometimes people don't find cmd line utilities friendly, although to others they become second nature. My goal has been to make something as simple as possible, and try to explain it along the way.

If it works, this should be stickied, so that noobs like myself know the best/easiest way to proceed (there are already a few guides and toolkits, but this one seems to be much simpler!).

    Hey, great work! Have you ever thought about making a mac or linux port? I'd really love to help you make one!

    For those of you who have 1.5.5 already, the 1.6.0 update package is officially live now. I am updating my site right now with new information and the full version.

    I was able to do everything I set out to do in this release. Support for the Nexus 10, 4, new 3G Nexus 7. 4.2.0 support, and what I spent the most time on - a fully web backed system, that autograbs the latest files the toolkit needs, and populates everything from text files I maintain on the web, making keeping the toolkit updated with the latest files nearly instantaneous.

    Lots more info coming. Enjoy ^_^

    p.s. thank you all for your patience.

    Working on it now. Been really busy though with another project though; https://capsules.io/ks.html

    I will try my best to get the toolkit updated asap in my limited free time. There are some other changes/updates I need to integrate as well, but not too many. Cheers.

    {{ WugFresh }}

    Coding went pretty smooth this round. v1.8.3 is up. (Yes, it supports 4.4.3)

    Enjoy ^_^

    Ok, so my coding is going really well today. I really think I will be done tonight. Yay!

    A word to the wise though; The program now uses Goo.im as the backend for everything because my host just couldn't handle it. They were nice enough to allocate me a large quantity of direct downloads (more than enough) through the program, but there is a daily cap; 30 per day per unique IP. That said, triggering a check for update, will register as a download because it downloads a small text file. So I recommend against checking for updates repeatedly today because your IP will get blocked and when the update is actually out later tonight you won't be able to use the updater, and will have to download the full version.

    That said, the full version is going to be SIGNIFICANTLY smaller. The toolkit will now be entirely backed by an automated file list on the web. This means, the toolkit will only grab the files it needs. So if you only have a Gnex, it won't come with all the files for every single nexus device, but rather.. it will download them when you select that in the toolkit (if it doesn't detect them already in the local directory).

    The device and build lists will now be populated from a text file that the toolkit can grab from the web. That means, in the future when a new build comes out, I can make it so the toolkit self updates within 20 minutes with everything it needs, and that build will be listed. Same goes for autoupdating CWM, TWRP, and SuperSU. The toolkit will therefore will always be up to date with the latest files. And I wont have to go crazy hard coding all of this like I have been.

    Ok.. Back to coding for me. Thank you all for your patience. The slight delays in this release will ultimately speed up all future updates forever. ^_^
