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 ~

Big thanks to ej8989 for asking me to post this here for the benefit of Nexus S owners. This program supports all the Nexus devices but I had only posted it the Nexus7 thread.. Now I will maintain multiple threads although its the same program.

I will do my best to keep this program updated to support the latest builds for as long as possible. Cheers. ^_^

updater seems to freeze after downloading (v1.5.4)

246rkhl.jpg

Right.. Sorry about that, I forgot to add that information to my site.

The updater in v1.5.4 had that problem if the toolkit was in a path with spaces in it. Just replace the Wug_Updater.exe in the toolkit directory with the new one from v1.5.5: http://wug.rootxs.com/NRT_extras/Wug_Updater.exe

Then try again, it should work without problems. it was a catch 22 for me.. I couldn't auto update the updater..lol, but now its good :)

After trying for over an hour and going through all three driver methods I cannot get the NRT to connect to my phone. When the phone is rebooted into Fastboot, the volume keys do not work for changing selection, and the computer does not detect anything plugged in via USB suggesting the phone freezes whenever it it put into Fastboot mode.

Model is a Nexus S i9020a running 4.1.1 on JRO03E.

This is on an ASUS K53S notebook running Windows 7 x64.

I had something similar happen to me on one machine. What I did to fix it was start at the beginning of the guide.. i.e uninstalling everything completely and rebooting my computer. Then I used driver solution#3 (RAW drivers), with a different usb port. The key is rebooting your computer after uninstalling everything.

If it persistently doesn't work, maybe I can help you out through gchat sometime.. not tonight though, I am still cranking out this next toolkit release.

Yeah I did the uninstalls and reboots. Followed the guide exactly. After it didn't work I even took the next step in killing all unnecessary system processes and disabling antivirus.

I'm going to get another notebook that's been freshly formatted and try it again next weekend.

Maybe you could try forcing the "Naked Drivers" by 1wayjonny. When you use driver solution #3 windows just scans the sub-directories of the RAW_Driver folder in the toolkit and chooses the ones it thinks are the "best".

Use this longer path instead to force it to check only in the folder which contains those universal drivers:
Code:
[NRT_TOOLKIT_DIRECTORY]\data\Drivers\RAW_Drivers\NAKED_Drivers

Let me know if that works. Cheers.

Your website WugFresh.com is having DNS issues on the East Coast US. It resolves to Cloudflare DNS error page which states either you haven't logged in or if you have it is taking time to spread the DNS info [which is prolly not the case given you are found on google search meaning its been up for a bit] or that you changed your hosting provider and their DNS records do not correctly point to your domain.


---Error Page---
You've requested a page on a website (www.wugfresh.com) that is on the CloudFlare network. Unfortunately, CloudFlare is currently unable to resolve your requested domain (www.wugfresh.com). There are two potential causes of this:

Most likely: if the owner just signed up for CloudFlare it can take a few minutes for the website's information to be distributed to our global network. Check back in about 5 minutes and the site should be up and running and enjoying all the benefits of CloudFlare.

Less likely: something is wrong with this site's configuration. Usually this happens when accounts have been signed up with a partner organization (e.g., a hosting provider) and the provider's DNS fails.

Yeah, sorry about that. I switched my site over to a dedicated IP to deal with increased web traffic and some of the new toolkit communications coming in v1.6, so the DNS needed to propagate. I still have more work to do on v1.6 but my site should be back up and running now. Hopefully the dedicated IP will help me resolve some of the web hosting issues I have been struggling with.

Again, sorry for the inconvenience and lack of communication during the temporary outage. I just was busy traveling for Thanksgiving plans.

Cheers,

This program looks to be something VERY useful, however, it seems to be a little too late for it to pick up steam, but nice to see support for dying devices

I have been coding like crazy and I am releasing a major update by Saturday that will support all the latest Nexus devices and will make updating it in the future nearly instantaneous. Your comment is just frustrating.
