Chainfire Roots all Lollipop Nexus devices Except the Nexus 6

17 November, 2014 Nexus



Chainfire is back and this time brings the number of rooted Lollipop-running Nexus devices to six CF Auto Root is available with SuperSU v2.20.


For Lollipop devices the latest Chainfire version includes a ZIP to patch the kernel to run CF Auto Root at boot. Here's the list of supported devices:


  • Nexus 4
  • Nexus 5
  • Nexus 10
  • Nexus 7 (2012)
  • Nexus 7 (2013)
  • Nexus 9

This only leaves the Nexus 6 without root, but considering the speed with which Chainfire expands the list it probably won't be a long wait. That said, the Google+ post mentions hardware issues, which may slow down the progress.
