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 ~

Does this use chainfires method?

Yes, although NRT's procedure is different, the technical aspect of the root is identical. I compiled a build specific root_kernel with the modification necessary to enable SuperSU flashing. Chainfire is currently testing a new method that does not rely on the kernel modification (until google inevitably patches it) - if that zygote method is deemed stable, then NRT will adopt the new SuperSU zip at that time and no longer use "root kernels".

NRT's advanced utilities has a simple button dedicated to restoring the stock kernel - so that will be an easy way to get back stock kernel if and when Chainfire announces that his new method is the standard.

One last question.... I downloaded this for the nexus 5. Assuming I just need to update the program?

Any plans to include the encryption removal into this?

I can do that. The way I will have to implement it ultimately depends on weather or not Chainfire's new SuperSU method works or not. Either way I will have to write some scripts on my end to auto-make those those non-forced-encryption boot.imgs per each build - however, I will have to also include the root_kernel modification if the new SuperSU method isn't adopted. I will wait for now to see what happens.

But yeah, should be possible and something I wouldn't mind coding.

Would definitely love this!

Was going to do it tonight, but I'll just wait for it in your toolkit.

Love all your work. Thanks!

Ooh. So this gets root on the N6 right now? Mine will be arriving today, hopefully in the next hour or so, so I'm just trying to get everything prepared ahead of time, so I can get my bootloader unlocked, get root, and install TWRP.

    v1.9.9 code is all done and everything seems to be good, I just need to crash for a bit before I do final testing and upload it. Seems to have taken me a bit longer than I estimated. I managed to get numerous features finished that I had originally planned for v2.0.0. Thank you for your patience.

    Hey guys. Still plugging away at this, had to setup a new vm-environment for some of my build scripts and I am merging in additional changes and features into this upcoming release than I initially intended. Still have decent energy and have a lot done already. Most deff will be out by tmrw the latest, just don't know the exact eta. Maybe if I keep grinding it will be out super late tonight, but I don't know.

    v1.9.9 will utilize SuperSU 2.27, which won't require root_kernels.

    For the no-force encrypt stuff, there will be two methods for dealing with this.
    1. There will be a new button in advanced utilities for it, so you can flash the no-force encrypt anytime.
    2. There will be a new option in the "flash stock options", where you can check 'utilize no-force encrypt kernel' - with that option, when flashing stock, it will substitute the stock kernel in the procedure with the no-force encrypt kernel, so the result will be a clean flash with the no-force kernel already in place.

    For users who have already rooted with NRT, when I release v1.9.9, you can use the advanced utilities button "restore stock kernel" first - and then just use the "root" button again.

    I will go through this thread and try to answer any questions I missed tmrw, trying to get back to coding for now.

    Stay tuned.
