Would you like to unlock Nexus phones? Then Nexus Root Toolkit is your ideal solution. The program contains all the files required to unlock and root Nexus devices easily. You can also use it to perform different tasks, including:
  • Rooting and unlocking phones
  • Flashing the phones back to stock and re-locking them
  • Installing apps
  • Setting file permissions
  • Flashing zips
  • Backing up and restoring data
  • Generating bugreports and logcats
The Toolkit works with both GSM and Verizon versions of Nexus phones. Once it detects a device, it will download specific files needed for the model to ensure the latest files are used.

Using Nexus Root Toolkit

Although Nexus Root Toolkit performs tasks that many people dread, it features a minimalistic user interface that allows users to access most functions using single clicks. There are no extensive menus to plough through in order to use the program.

Once we had plugged in our Nexus device, a quick start wizard helped us select its model and the version of Android it was running. The program then took us to the step where we were required to back up our settings and data. This is a very important step. The ability to back up and restore data is very important because the functions Nexus Root Toolkit performs result in total data loss.

We then entered the Initial Setup phase where configurations and drivers were installed. The program then performed a quick test that confirmed our phone was ready. In addition to rooting, unlocking, flashing, backing up and restoring data, the program allowed us to boot .img files to any partition on the device. Under Options, we could set file associations, disable messages and configure extra recovery settings.

If you want to get the most out of your Nexus phone, then Nexus Root Toolkit is a powerful tool that is also user friendly. Even if you had never tried rooting a phone before, you will not find the program daunting.

Although Nexus Root Toolkit is relatively easy to use, you must note that the process of rooting phones requires some skills and knowledge of related terms. Rooting gives you complete control over your phone, but a wrong step can easily lead to disaster. Thankfully, the program provides plenty of tips and warnings.
