    Problem Rooting with Nexus Root Toolkit 1.5.3

    Hi

    I used Wugfresh's Nexus Root Toolkit (1.5.3) to flash to stock Jelly Bean. I was previously on 4.0.1 (yakjuux). Jelly Bean is great, and everything was fine, but I wanted to make sure I could still restore it back to yakjuux in case I need warranty service at any point.

    So, I first tried the OEM Lock button, which worked fine. Then I unlocked again, which wiped the phone, and then I attempted to root so I could restore the nandroid backup I had made.

    Now, when I click the Root button, it reboots into Fastboot, then says it's pushing files, and then I see the "Team Win" logo, and then a screen with 8 grey buttons (top says "Team Win Recovery Project v2.2.0), and the Toolkit on my computer says "Waiting for your device to finish booting back up". It's been sitting like this for a long time now. Previously, I tried clicking the "Reboot" button on the phone, checked for root, and didn't appear to be rooted.

    I just want to flash the nandroid backup. Do I need to be rooted for that? The tool says I do.

    What did I do wrong?

    On another note, is it possible to just obtain the ROM of the original Yakjuux at a later date if I need it? I'd really like to get back to the Jelly Bean goodness I had...

    Thanks...

    You need to flash the su.zip file that the toolkit pushed to your phone to root.. I'm not familiar with twrp, so I'm not sure of the menus.. also if you didn't backup that nandroid to your computer, it got wiped along with everything else when you relocked/unlocked the bootloader..

    It boots you in to twrp.. Which I like more then clockwork recovery.. From there you should just be able to restore the back up you made
    The restore should be the second button down on the left side of the screen... If that's the recovery you used to make the back up

    Re: Problem Rooting with Nexus Root Toolkit 1.5.3

    The nandroid is on my computer, where the toolkit saved it.

    So did I miss a step with the toolkit, or is that a bug?

    Also, still wondering about the other question... is it possible to just later download a factory ROM of the original yakuux in case I need it for warranty?

    There is no official downloadable yakjuux unfortunately since only yakju/takju have support for gsm. The most you can get for that are nandroid backups

    alright... no biggie... using the toolkit... open command prompt for adb... boot your phone into recovery.. and push type

    adb push (name of file).zip /storage/sdcard0/(name of file).zip
