Got a Nexus Device? Here’s Why You Need WugFresh NRT

1

Are you a Nexus user? Do you like to play around with your device?

If you scored Yes on both questions, then it’s settled, the WugFresh Nexus Root Toolkit is for you, and the sooner you have it, the better.

The Android community might not show it but it has a soft corner for noobs willing to experiment and thus generous developers do unite to put together toolkits meant for phones or series [nexus]. WugFresh is one such attempt, there are other examples too [e.g. Hasoon2000 for HTC].

Before moving on, let me highlight why it’s better as compared to conventional rooting/flashing methods. Here’s why:

  • It’s simple & easy [I’m a noob, you can count on me]
  • With the toolkit in place you can bid adieu to the Terminal/Command prompt complexities, the kit does everything for you, with simple clicks.
  • The toolkit can fetch software update images, custom recoveries, and modified boot images for your respective devices.
  • It’s possible to root & unroot, unlock & relock the bootloader, and flash custom recoveries; all with simple clicks
  • Worried that you need to claim a warranty? WugFresh can bring your device to factory state in a jiffy
  • Bricked your Nexus? WugFresh claims to recover both soft bricked and hard bricked devices.
  • If that wasn’t enough, it also has a Live Log that shows you the status at each step of the process.

What you need?

  • The latest version of WugFresh NRT [download links below]
  • USB Debugging enabled on your Nexus device
  • USB drivers installed on your PC for the Nexus device [if not, WugFresh USB guide will enlighten your path]

Tested on:

  • Nexus 4
  • Nexus 5
  • Nexus 6
  • Nexus 7
  • Nexus 7 FHD

It worked well for all tasks [rooting, unrooting, unlocking bootloader, relocking bootloader, flashing custom recovery, factory state]. Here’s a screenshot of what you might see:

Go ahead, try a hand at the toolkit if you already know your way around Android or are willing to give it a go. Give us your feedback, share your experiences. Above all, pass this on to those you know in the Android community [or Nexus to be precise]

Cheers!
