|Version||Date Released||Status||Release Notes|
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.9.9||Nov 27, 2014||New Release||New feature for flashing a build specific ‘No-forced Encryption’ boot.img [for Nexus 6 & 9]: Advanced Utilities > Fastboot Flash > Boot > ‘No-Force Encrypt’ button
Root method no longer relies upon root_kernels, but rather utilizes Chainfires latest and greatest SuperSU.
Added a dedicated ‘Vendor’ button in advanced utilities for flashing that image on the Nexus 9.
Added new Fastboot Erase and Fastboot Format features (advanced utilities), which allow users to perform batch wipe operations after selecting the partitions with checkboxes.
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.9.8||Nov 18, 2014||New Release||Dynamic web-backed legacy file scrubbing system built. Now in the event of a bad upload, WugFresh can easily upload a new file with the identical file name and upon Masterlist update NRT will automatically handle scrubbing the legacy file.
Copying CWM Nandroid to computer now works properly on Lollipop.
ADB Not Found message for performing ADB Sideload operations now details how to properly configure the driver in that state.
Additional information on hashcheck mismatch msgbox, which now notifies the user updating the Masterlists is the first thing they should try.
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.9.7||Nov 16, 2014||New Release||Included the latest Masterlists to prevent users who never utilized the “Update” in the kit from getting the AutoIt error (for KTU84P Nexus 7 2013). This error was due to the modified boot.img for that build being accidentally removed from the server. Its was then reuploaded and the masterlists were updated, but those users who never updated would still get the error.
No longer will the “Force Flash” recommendation be made to N4 users, because it seems to cause a bootloop – however factory resting will fix that either way
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.9.6||Nov 16, 2014||New Release||Fixes to Wug_Updater_Nexus.exe|
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.9.4||Nov 14, 2014||New Release||Lollipop support for all the recently released factory images.
Live log is no longer governed by an on/off toggle, but rather always shows so users can easily check cmd output.
Error checking on 7zip factory package extraction.
Utilizing BETA-SuperSU is the default option on first install (can be changed in the options menu).
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.9.2||Oct 27, 2014||New Release||Additions to the legacy cleanup script.
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.9.1||Oct 21, 2014||New Release||Additions to the legacy cleanup script.
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.8.7||Sep 8, 2014||New Release||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.
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.8.6||Aug 6, 2014||New Release||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.
|Nexus Root Toolkit 1.8.5||Jul 31, 2014||New Release||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% and say mismatch, it will now always go to 100%, 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.
