Hmm.. That sure looks pretty straight forward. Correct me if I'm wrong but the bootloader unlock does the equivalent of a factory reset, yes?

Any clod can have the facts, but having an opinion is an art.

Yes, unlocking bootloader will wipe all data. It's for data security.
So I need to do it before I start using N5.
Paste your logcat to GitHub Gist or any similar websites, and link it in your post if you need any help. (Don't forget to tell us your HD2 setup/configuration.)

But I like the command lines. ;)

Unlock bootloader:
Code: Select all
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot oem unlock


Flash custom recovery:
Code: Select all
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.2-hammerhead.img


Root:
Code: Select all
adb push UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.75.zip /sdcard/
adb reboot recovery

Then flash SuperSU via TWRP recovery.

Finished.

Is this specific to the N5 or would these commands work for other phones (e. g. LG G2)?

I believe that Tytung's command line root would work for any phone, except that a recovery image file specific to your phone would have to be used.

Change the line that reads:

fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.2-hammerhead.img

to:

fastboot flash recovery recovery_image_file_name.img

The XDA G2 site appears to have a version of TWRP for your phone. If the version of TWRP you get is a ZIP installer file, you'll have to unzip it first to get the recovery image file.

Just out of curiosity, why do you use SuperSU? I use it too but I can't find a real reason that why I use it. Maybe it's just because I like to flash things. :)

Thanks, but I am already rooted. I was interested in knowing whether all three commands would work, not specifically rooting.

I would be interested in knowing whether the the bootloader unlock command would work for me, rather than my having to depend upon the kernel/ROM being lokied.

Nexus series is released as the developer device, so the bootloader can be unlocked easily by design.
I'm not sure if LG prevent users from unlocking G2 or not. I mean that you may need some tricky methods to unlock the G2 bootloader.

Gotcha. I guess that is why "they" are using lokie to circumvent unlocking the bootloader, while still allowing for flashing ROMs.

I asked it, because I really wonder to which rom will used by tytung for base? Cyanogenmod or anything else? Will he need a new kernel?
