  • Restore Stock Kernel script no longer performs a temp boot test operation, it just flashes it.
  • Flash TWRP/CWM/PHILZ/OTHER scripts, now allow you to disable the additional operation of flashing '' which is only needed the first time you flash an alternate recovery (so for example if you are just upgrading to a new version of TWRP, you can forgo flashing that zip and just have NRT flash the new version).
  • Fastboot device detection now auto-retries to connect once if it doesn't the first time.
  • Updated the included adb/fastboot binaries to the latest platform-tools release from the SDK
  • Added an automatic check to see if 'Bluestacks' application is running on start, to ask the user if they want NRT to close it (because this application causes conflicts with NRT)

  • Minor bug fixes, code optimizations, and feature enhancements.

What's new in version 1.9.1:

  • Bug fixes.

What's new in version 1.8.9:

  • Redesigned entire dependency downloading system. No longer is the user prompted with numerous 'Such and such file is not found in the local directory, press OK to download', but rather there is a unified and dynamic interface for managing all required files/downloads per toolkit operation.
  • The two exe's for managing downloads in the past 'nexwug_DL_NRTfiles.exe' and 'nexwug_DLnX.exe' are now consolidated to one hybrid downloader 'nexwug_downloader.exe' which manages all downloads, hash-checking, and factory pack extraction operations.
  • Manual input for hash-checking is now only shown for files the toolkit doesn't already have in the masterlists.
  • Automatic hash-checking is now also performed in files that are manually imported into the toolkit via the manual download interface (when/if server issues cause the automated downloader to fail)
  • Multi-device auto-update management has been revamped and redesigned, with new dynamic information displayed in the tray menu item that appears during the process. Fully integrated to work with the new hybrid downloader.
  • New double-check automatic device detection (can be disabled in the toolkit options) that quickly checks to see if your selected device is correct. If the toolkits auto-device detection determines that you selected the wrong device it automatically notifies the user and asks if you want to correct the selection.
  • Live-log is now governed by a quick toggle menu item in the main interface and also linked to the hotkey [ctrl+L]
  • Options menu has a 'Reset to defaults' button now
  • Drag and drop behaviour in the 'Flash zips' interface for reorganize zips to flash has been fixed.
  • Fixes to enhance how NRT handles factory images it doesn't know about yet.
  • Major code revisions to the entire codebase in preparation for porting this kit to new devices.
  • Android 5.0.0 Lollipop Developer Preview added for easy flashing and other operations (Root will not work with the current 2.13 SuperSU)

  • Lots of other code changes implemented for general optimizations and improved user experience.

What's New in version 1.8.7:

  • Added some Android L specific message boxes.
  • Fixes to multi file push script.
  • Code additions to the single adb backup script, so that if the list doesn't properly populate due to conflicting adb software running (like bluestacks), it just returns a blank pull-down rather than an autoit error.
  • Change the display text for 'Nexus 7 v2? to 'Nexus 7 2013 Edition' for better readability and to prevent improper selection by end-user.
  • Other small bug fixes and optimizations.

What's New in version 1.8.6:

  • Fixed linking to external websites from NRT's main menu on Windows 8.1.
  • Additional file dependency checks for the Lock script, to ensure it runs properly for N4 devices.
  • Fixes to the custom driver installer to ensure it runs properly on machines that don't have English set as the default language.
  • New 'Busybox' option in the toolkits main settings menu for selecting whether or not the user wants to skip its installation during the root procedure, flash the free version (default), or install Busybox pro from the Playstore.
  • Other small bug fixes and optimizations.

What's new in version 1.8.5:

  • Removed legacy/redundant driver methods and replaced them with fully automated driver solutions via DpInst.exe. The toolkit no longer uses third-party driver installers and extensive pictorial walk-through's. Now there are three fully automated driver solutions (Google, PdaNet, & Universal) which only require one click to install. The Raw/manual method and pictorial walk-through is still included.
  • Enhanced the NRT Uninstaller to provide an option for also uninstalling the drivers.
  • All auto-downloaders now present a 'retry download' option if it fails in addition to the manual download method.
  • Improvements to the updater, progress bar won't get stuck on 1 percent and say mismatch, it will now always go to 100 percent, and if you get the mismatch you can retry the download.
  • Just like the root procedure, advanced utilities > flash perm > 'flash recovery' button now also renames recovery-from-boot.p to ensure recovery sticks.
  • Android L-preview added, full support will be included when its officially released.
  • Full KTU84Q 4.4.4 support.
  • Updated toolkit to use the latest platform-tools and Google driver files from the SDK.
  • Bug fixes and optimizations.

  • Additional/improved automation scripts on my end for expediting the process of updating the toolkit to support new builds.
  • Bug fixes and optimizations.

What's New in version 1.8.3:
