thanks, might end up doing this soon

 

Unlocking/rooting for the first time will wipe the device, correct?

Unlocking the bootloader does that, so yes.

You are correct.

Rooting itself doesn't wipe the device, but unlocking the bootloader does.

I was meant to unlock the bootloader when I bought the phone but it slipped my mind tongue.gif

Just for clarifiation; you can unlock the bootloader and remain stock and get OTA updates and use the phone as normal. You'll just get an annoying message on boot on a 5x.
With root, FlashFire can even get OTA updates, I've done some security updates on my 5x with it while rooted. Apparently it even works for a custom recovery, I'm running TWRP now so I guess we'll see how it goes.

I ended up spending almost 2 hours to get the ADB windows driver to install correctly, wew...the struggle is real

 

after that though, it took maybe 10 minutes to unlock, root and flash (all went smoothly) and got PureNexus 7.1.1 now. it's noticeably snappier than 6.0.1 which is great, kinda wishing I'd done this sooner :cheers:

Looks really nice. I can't remember the last time I used Windows for adb/fastboot. Last I remember it was just install one driver, is it more than that now?

one driver that refuses to work half of the time. it showed in Device Manager as "ACER Composite ADB device" (huh?) and the toolkit wasn't recognizing the fastboot device until after I reinstalled/rebooted about 200 times

 

I was going to try and use my Linux to do it the hardmode way in terminal, but have yet to get the Linux USB driver installed and working

Shouldn't have to install any drivers in Linux for it. Just ADB and fastboot, I use root for it since it gives me the least troubles.

I've never used linux myself for it. I've barely used Linux.. I have to get back into that..

It should automatically for the most part recognize it.. But it seems that you got it working in the end! thumb.gif
Awesome.

I think my N5 is dying. swapped screens a couple weeks back as the one i had cracked, fortunately i had a parts phone so i wasn't out anything.
Then the other day it started to not show anything on the screen but the backlight would turn on.
So just this morning I switched the motherboard back into the cracked screen and frame and the screen now works, mostly. if i press on the back cover in the right or in this case wrong place the screen can go severely discolored or even turn off again.
I am thinking it's not worth the $50 in parts it would take to repair it as that is a good chunk of cost for a 5X used.

Thoughts?

EDIT: I also have a buddy wiling to borrow me his LG G4 32gb model until i either buy a 5X or buy his G4 for $175. for $175 the G4 specs seem like a steal. what would you do?
Also as this is just an owners club I will likely be opening my own thread for this issue.

My N5x just died, was on the phone call to my mum and it turned off..

Wouldn't boot again, stuck in a boot-loop.. Wouldn't boot to recovery

I knew i had issues then, currently trying Nexus Root Toolkit to try and flash stock 7.1.1 (Phone is rooted/bootloader unlocked) so I may have issues with warranty too.
Flashing it with "NO WIPE MODE", I'll let y'all know how it goes.. Might just be lucky.

Let that be a reminder to you all, BACKUP! I have a one month old backup, but it's still not as recent as I'd like..
