The new HTC Nexus 9 has just hit the market, and has done so as a shuttle of the new version of Android, 5.0 Lollipop, and accompanied by a hardware of new invoice with 64-bit architecture.
Everything seemed to indicate that we would take a little time to see Community obtaining the root – or root – access to the new device Nexus.
Nothing further from the truth, as the famous Chainfire developer has taken just one day since the publication of the Factory Image of the device in get the root in Nexus 9 access.
Thus, and as always in xda-developers, has been already published a manual of how enable root in Nexus 9, instructions we bring you same here translated into our language.
Rooting the Nexus 9
We know that root access is something that only advanced users should obtain, Although the process was normally quite simple. This time the thing is complicated a little more, because the CF-Auto – Root is not yet ready and what steps should be manually.
The first thing to do is download and unzip the pack SuperSU camera v2.18 Chainfire has prepared for the occasion. He then must go to the options for developers in our device, and enable the OEM unlock that Google has introduced in Android Lollipop as security.
This is done and already with ADB in command line as usual, must run the following commands one after the other:
- Fastboot oem unlock
- Fastboot boot inject.img
- Fastboot flash boot patched.img
Be careful if you fancy them to do so, and before performing the procedure, We recommend that you take a look at the link that I have left to xda-developers, where you will find the experience of other users who already have tried and will have all the information.
Some users have been advised that certain applications that require root access to run still have not adapted to the 64-bit architecture, so will need to be patient and allow time for developers.
