|Version||Date Released||Status||Release Notes|
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.8.1||Mar 4, 2014||New Release||Added tamper-flag reset for the N4 when re-locking.
Enhancements to the auto-detect button in the model/build select window: now it uses selective string matching to account for all the yaju* variants.
Added an additional step in the driver guide – explicitly detailing steps for configuring the MTP drivers properly first (before adb/fastboot).
Added specific RAW driver solution instructions for windows 8.1 users; detailing the proper steps (which are slightly different than the steps for windows 8).
Updated all code for compatibility with the latest production release of AutoIt.
Added proper Windows 8.1 detection.
Updated the help menu by removing the legacy help file, and direct linking to the FAQs instead; also renamed ‘wiki’ to ‘video guides’.
Added the ‘WugFresh’ name to all the included NRT executable files.
Updated the included SDK platform-tools to the latest revision available.
Some other small bug fixes, improvements and optimizations.
|Nexus Root Toolkit 220.127.116.11||Dec 27, 2013||New Release||Fixes to ‘Flash Stock + Unroot’ with ‘Other/Browse’ when choosing a .tar file instead of .tgz, should now work properly for all users.
New button in the toolkits device-selection window for auto-detecting your particular device and build for ease of use (and to prevent user error).
Added an additional message box after performing nandroid backups to ask the end-user if they would like to remove the backup which still resides on their device.
Added the proper file dependency checks at the beginning of the re-lock script to ensure all required files are present for N5 user (to allow auto-flashing the reset-tamper-flag zip).
Tweaked the rounding function for displaying the file/dir size of backups so that it displays two decimal places by default.
Updated the included Backup/Restore apps by Ritesh Sahu to the latest available versions (more specifically the sms backup-restore app should now work properly on KitKat builds).
|Nexus Root Toolkit 18.104.22.168||Nov 18, 2013||New Release||Added “No Wipe Mode” to the toolkits flash stock options to allow for flashing the factory packs without wiping userdata and cache.
To make this new ‘No Wipe Mode’ function properly the flashstock.bat was revised.
Code revisions were also made to allow the new ‘No Wipe Mode’ feature to work with ‘Force Flash Mode’.
Revised the toolkits ‘first run’ behavior to autodownload the latest masterlist first – before the user is presented with the device/build selection window.
To accommodate end-users from countries that were blocking Pastebin; the masterlist files are now stored and read in from my Github Gist account instead.
The ‘OEM Lock’ script was modified to perform a different procedure for Nexus5; more specifically – now it temporarily boots TWRP and autoflashes a zip made by XDA contributor osm0sis to relock the bootloader and reset the tamper flag.
Fixed the ‘restore nandroid’ buttons activity which was mistakenly disabled in v1.7.8 from an indirect change.
|Nexus Root Toolkit 22.214.171.124||Nov 18, 2013||New Release||Extended full support to all the devices that just recently got upgraded KitKat (N4, N7 WiFi, N7 Mobile, N7 v2 WiFi, N7 v2 Mobile, N10)
Enhanced the Screenrecording feature; more specifically – made it so the end-user can stop a recording early at anytime by pressing the ESC key on their keyboard.
Added some info to the driver guide that may be helpful.
Other small fixes and optimizations.
|Nexus Root Toolkit 126.96.36.199||Nov 8, 2013||New Release||Quick text fix on the ‘Push/Pull Files’ button in advanced utilities.|
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.7.2||Aug 28, 2013||New Release||· Code fixes to ensure selecting ‘Custom ROM’ as your build makes the toolkit behave as I originally intended – that being, to assume your device already has a modified boot.img and proceed accordingly.
· Some other small fixes, improvements and optimizations.
· Latest masterlists included.
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.7.1||Aug 20, 2013||New Release||· Code fixes to my temporary boot function that was causing some issues on certain devices.
· Removed modified boot.img’s from the masterlists for JWR66V & JWR66N builds for the new Nexus 7 devices. These modified boot.img’s were not performing properly. Now for full NRT feature support, its recommended to upgrade to the latest build available for your device first. If you are on those builds on that device, the root script is no longer fully automated (as it does not use a modified boot.img) and will instead show you instructions on how to flash the appropriate root files.
· Created modified boot.img for the new Nexus 7 (2013) Wifi device using the recently released factory image packages. This adds full automated rooting for this device as well as all the other automated features in the toolkit.
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.6.8||Aug 8, 2013||New Release||· Added the ability to root with Koush’s new Superuser in the toolkits options menu.
· Enhanced the ‘Flash Stock + Unroot’ script to intelligently parse the flash-all.sh file included in factory image packages and check for $ERASEALL condition, if true the flashstock.bat will perform the fastboot erase operations prior to flashing the stock images. This ensures that the flashstock.bat script behaves the same way the script google provides does.
· Added ‘Force Flash’ mode option to enable flashing the stock image packages without any checks. This works by further extracting the factory image package and flashing each fastboot image file individually.
· In the new ‘Force Flash’ script the toolkit reads in the flashing requirements it will ignore from the android-info.txt and displays them in the flash stock confirmation message box.
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.6.4||Jul 3, 2013||New Release||· Full 4.2.2 support for all the supported Nexus devices.
· Dynamic tooltips throughout the entire program – in an attempt to help answer questions before they are asked, I spent a lot of time creating mouse-over tooltips to help explain every button, option, and checkbox.
· The tooltips are ‘dynamic’ in that they change depending on what options you currently have selected, meaning they will provide the most relevant information for the task you are about to perform.
· Added a new script in advanced utilities called ‘Sideload Update’ for automating adb sideloading of update zip packages (ota zips).
· Added a new script in advanced utilities called ‘Restore Stock Kernel’ for providing an automated procedure for first testing a stock kernel and then flashing it – this script will restore the stock android kernel specific to your device and build.
· Added a new button in advanced utilities which launches a brand new interface built for automating logcat/bugreport file generation.
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.6.3||Feb 25, 2013||New Release||· Revised the update system to be more streamlined and consolidated.
· Now the masterlists are version managed, meaning they will only get updated if changes have been made to them.
· The update process now checks for both program updates and masterlist updates through the same version control method with no additional prompts; and then afterwards automatically cross checks the local directories with the updated/latest masterlists to ensure the end user has all the latest files and toolkit dependencies available for their device.
· The text based update info and masterlist files are now hosted on pastebin instead of goo.im to reduce the load on goo’s servers and also reduce the chance of end users ever reaching goo.im’s daily download cap (that they allocated me for this program). Now goo’s servers can just be utilized for binaries, which only need to be downloaded once, rather than people constantly pinging those text based masterlist files and update info everyday.
