You the man!
Lol, your slowing down with age :p

Wow. The ink is still wet on the Play Store page. You're the man.

Lol CF, you are crazy dude :)))
That was fast! ;)
Damn dude already lol ;) awesome work as usual! Thanks!
Like a Boss.
Out of this world!
+Chainfire would you consider doing sudo for 4.0+ devices, please?
I'll donate a bit once I get the actual phone. You rule man!
Please update cf-auto root for 4.3 i9500 pleaseeee
+ChainfireBecause Problem is knox. It delete or freeze superuser. I try delete knox programs than appear alot of system problem
+Chainfire because its a better way of doing privilege escalation. Wouldn't you rather run as a normal user on your daily driver? With the implementation of multiple user profiles, I think having su call a hidden admin profile would be better, right? I don't know how you do it in supersu, but.. The main reason is simple: Create the code that Google can use in AOSP without carriers shitting bricks.
4.4 has multiple privilege levels, right? Call it s challenge. I bet you 25 bucks you can't create an api or package for sudo like behavior using ICS or Kit Kat profiles.
Hold on......Chainfire..really dude....
How is the audio compared to the S4? Thank you
christ. can you be less fast? ppl have not recived the phone yet :D

+Chainfire can you post a few screenshots of the notification center?
Superfast, the only problem is: My N5 will arrive next week :-((
+Chainfire how do you like the Nexus 5 compared to the 4?
+Chainfire How did you do with SELinux in enforcing mode? Do you add a policy?
+Chainfire do you know anyone who's written a DSLR controller for the Nikon family?
Bloody hell that was fast
Awesome you ar fast
Can I ask you? Do you planing to make triangle away for i9500?

How do you make the *.tar.md5 file for Samsung device, especially the cache.img in it while stock ROM doesn't include it. I want to make cache.img with no content in it, but I don't know how to get its exact size.
Got i9305 guy changed screen now imei null/null rooted it cant write imei back in with z3x no *#9090# menu any ideas please
Where can i download the last superuser flashable zip for nexus5?
And google said they made it impossible to root in 4.4 :D
Setuped and ready to use...just waiting for my N5 to get delivered...really excited.
Hmm, all I'm getting in the Windows cmd window is < waiting for device > but the device is plugged in. Any thoughts?
Exist any way how to revert changes made by this tool? before apply OTA update, it fail with root enabled. I mean some way without reflash stock image. I mean only some small zip which I can apply from CWM recovery and then update via OTA?
Sorry, I am New user..this root will erase my phone data?(sms phone contact)
and app need to redownload again?
+Meowshen Blackid Yes it will probably erase your data
got my Nexus 5 today and fail to root my N5 after ota to 4.4.2, can you give me some advice? thank you so much. +Chainfire
+吴伟康 之前已經用了..cf auto root? 再root多一次..同樣步驟..我試過了..可以..
+Chainfire I have 2 questions (which I would have posted to the XDA channel for this but it won't let me post to developers threads yet and I didn't want to take it to a generic Q&A thread) ... sorry.
If I ever need to un-root my Nexus how do I do it?
And what do I need to do when Sprint pushes an OTA update to the OS?
Other than the I watch the video that Jordan from xda did on applying root to this device using CF-Auto-Root and I was amazed!
