Google Nexus 5 :: How To Upgrade To Lollipop On Rooted Device

Nov 24, 2014

I successfully rooted my Nexus 5 without entirely knowing what I was doing. But I am finally ready for the Lollipop update that came over the air several days ago. I finally downloaded it, but when it got ready to install it the phone went into what I believe was recovery mode and said "teamwin," before opening up to a menu. From there, I didn't exactly know what to do to get Lollipop to install itself.

Google Nexus 5 :: Could Phone Still Be Rooted After Lollipop Update

Nov 17, 2014

I've got an odd issue with Nexus 5. I had previously rooted under KitKat, and then decided to update to Lollipop. I used the adb sideload to push the OTA update onto the phone. It appears that in the update I lost my root (not the real issue) and everything with Lollipop seems fine. Something in my device claims that it's still rooted (even though every root checker says I'm not). I utilize the Good for Enterprise app and it's telling me that I'm not in compliance and keeps wiping my account (after setting it up again with my IT group). IT claims I'm rooted since it's wiping, but like I said every root checker says that I'm not. What I find weird is apps like Solid Explorer and Helium "think" I'm rooted for a brief second, but don't let me do anything that having root would let me do. (helium reverts to non-root after saying there was an error executing Superuser and solid explorer asks me to install BusyBox).

IIRC just factory wiping the device wouldn't get rid of root. Do I root again and then try to unroot? Do I try something else? Basically I don't need/want root, but I obviously want my Good for Enterprise to work correctly. I can always push the factory image onto the phone using ADB if that would work. I can backup most of my apps and such with Helium and start over without it being a huge deal but I'm concerned even that wouldn't work.

Google Nexus 5 :: Installing Marshmallow On A Rooted Device

Oct 9, 2015

I had a lot of issues with lollipop 5.1.1 in my nexus. All Google apps connected to internet only via WiFi and it wouldn't connect through the mobile data connection.

And then there was the battery life problem. So I switched to PA 4.6 beta based on kitkat. I would now like to try Marshmallow.

My question is, will downloading the factory image and flashing it through clockwork mod work? Or should I revert back to 5.1.1 nandroid backup I made earlier and wait for OTA? I can see some post about a feature called verity and the complications it brings to rooted users in 6.0. Does this affect the process of flashing a stock factory image on a rooted phone?

Google Nexus 5 :: Apply Security Patch With Rooted Device?

Jan 4, 2016

I have a rooted N5 and im running 6.0 build MRA58K and continue to get prompted to install a security update.My question is, is it safe to install this update, will i lose root or have to reroot? If i "unroot" the system with supersu and then install it after, would that work too? Also i would like to update my kernel to the newest version. Im running blu_spark build #30. Would i just reflash the kernel or do i have to jump through hoops by reflashing the rom first? I dont remember how it works.

Google Nexus 5 :: Clean Install Of Custom ROM On Rooted Device With TWRP

Oct 27, 2015

I am on a stock rooted Nexus 5 (with TWRP). I want to install a custom rom; however, I would like to do a clean install of the custom rom (making sure no files/settings of my previous installations are left if that makes sense). What's the best way to go about this? Does it mean I have to install both the custom rom and the recovery again in order to do a clean install?

Google Nexus 6 :: How To Get OTA Updates While Rooted

Sep 16, 2015

I rooted my N6 and have TWRP installed. A beautiful combination, however, recently I have been getting upgrades from Google for the phone which will not install. The upgrade has the phone reboot into recovery mode, which is TWRP and then it simply does not take place.

I did not want to put on a custom ROM, I simply wanted to get two apps running and for that, I had to be rooted.

How I do the upgrades now? I used the WUG kit to even put the phone back to stock and remove TWRP but then when it went to do the upgrade it went to the recovery screen and showed an error when it tried to upgrade. I am not sure if my bootloader was locked or not, maybe that was the culprit.

I'd like to leave the phone rooted with TWRP but still do the upgrades?? How??

Google Nexus 5 :: Display Stopped Working - Phone Is Rooted

Dec 17, 2015

Recently my Nexus 5 stopped working. I get no display, But I can assume the phone is on because when I connect it, the holder on my computer opens up.

I assume there is something wrong with the connection. sometimes i can play with the daughterboard and the backlight lights up. but there is still no display.

The problem is that the phone is in PTP instead of MPT.

I don't care about the phone much as the pictures on it, because they are the last picture I have of a family member that recently passed away in an accident.

Even though the phone is rooted. when I load up Nexus toolkit, the phone is listed as unauthorized and I don't know how to pull any files off of it.

Google Nexus 5 :: Non Rooted / Unlocked Phone Rebooting Constantly

Jan 19, 2016

My son's nexus started rebooting on its own here and there a little less than a month ago. Last week it started boot looping. I would have to turn it off(only worked sometimes by going into fastboot mode). Tried resetting and wiping in recovery with no luck. This problem gets worse when it's plugged up to a computer the phone turns into a reboot machine. I read up it could be the power button and took it apart to find the button works fine (still cleaned out though).

Google Nexus 5 :: Can't Set CPU Speed On Lollipop

Feb 14, 2015

I just installed Nameless ROM and am having trouble setting the CPU speeds. I've tried with Device control (built in) and then with No Frills CPU, both with root access, and have not had any success setting my CPU speed. When I set anything on minimum, I exit the app and when I return it goes back to its original value (1574). Same thing with No Frills. I have BusyBox installed and the latest version of SuperSu. I do not have a custom Kernel, but my experience in the past has been quite similar with Franco Kernel and ElementalX kernel across a number of different ROMs.

Google Nexus 5 :: Random Reboot On Lollipop 5.1

Apr 13, 2015

I've got some random reboots after upgrading on stock Lollipop 5.1 on my Nexus 5.I've used Android 5.0.1 without any reboots or problem, but after upgrading on 5.1 I'm facing many random reboots when I switch from an app (like a game or Hangouts) using Recents or Home button from NavBar (it also happens randomly when I'm using my phone, like writing a message on Hangouts).The reboots I'm talking about are not "soft" but "hard", because bootloader's logo (Google) appears and restarts my phone, so it is caused by Kernel Panic (as you'll see in my last_kmsg) and they occured on both stock and custom rom.

Google Nexus 5 :: Why Isn't Swiftkey Working On Lollipop

Nov 19, 2014

Andriod Ver - 5.0
Swiftkey Ver -
Phone - Google Nexus 5 (32 gb)

I received the Lollipop update yesterday and since then have also updated Swiftkey. Swiftkey randomly stopped working this morning. When I try to type anywhere the keyboard doesn't open up, I've tried this on the Google search bar, Whatsapp, Snapchat and Notes and all had the same result. On going to the Swiftkey description page from the Input Settings, even the Swiftkey info stays for a few seconds and then it automatically closes. If i got to the settings from the Apps tab in Settings then I can view the app info. I switched to the Google Keyboard and everything is fine.

Google Nexus 5 :: Camera Error On Lollipop?

Nov 16, 2014

So I flashed the final build of Lollipop on my Nexus 5, worked great for the first couple of days, now I'm getting a camera error, saying failed to connect to the camera. This only happens with the front-facing camera, and it works fine after a reboot but problem comes back after a day or two.

Back when I had an S3, the same thing would happen, but with the rear camera, I thought it was a hardware issue but now I'm thinking maybe not, since it's happening right after flashing a new OS this time (can't remember if the problem on my S3 was after an OTA, or maybe after rooting and going custom ROM)
