You can now Root Android M!

You can now Root Android M!

While it wasn’t totally unexpected, rooting the new developer preview of Android M wasn’t the first thing i thought of when Pichai was unveiling the update. Rooting a Nexus however, has not been seen as one of the most difficult tasks in the Android community. The community prevails once again with this root method for Android M.

The process is decidedly simple. All you need to do it flash a custom recovery, kernel, and boot image to keep from triggering the validation flag, and then flash the SuperSU .zip to ensure that the device is rooted. This allows you to change files you wouldn’t normally be able to see — something those of you who have already updated to the M preview already know.

This exact process is as follows:

  1. Download custom kernel and SuperSU zips

  2. Put both in your /sdcard/

  3. Download the boot image

  4. Reboot bootloader

  5. Flash boot image

  6. Reboot

  7. Reboot into recovery

  8. Flash kernel then SuperSU

  9. Reboot

  10. Profit
