Root Google Nexus 5

> >

Welcome to the Nexus 5 root section of Android Geeks. Here you will be able to find the best tutorials that teach how to root your Nexus 5 without harming your device.

As you may know, you will need the Nexus 5 root in order to install custom ROMs (you can find them in the Nexus 5 update section of our website) or to install applications that require root access.

Even though rooting your Nexus 5 is completely safe, on certain markets it’s illegal to root your Android smartphone so the warranty might be voided in the process. All the Nexus 5 root tutorials that can be founded below have been tested by our team, so it’s safe to apply them on your device. Anyway, we will not be held responsible in any way for any damage you do to your device while applying the root.

Usually, after you install an official update on your Nexus 5 you will lose root access, but you will be able to re-root the device using the tutorials.

In order to perform a Nexus 5 root you will also need to unlock its bootloader. Fortunately, a link to the tutorial that teaches you how to unlock Nexus 5 bootloader can also be found in the root articles, along with all the files needed in the process.
