    I can’t install this Nexus Root Toolkit on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Try to disable windows UAC but still not work. Is this application not support in Windows 64bit?

    I’m not sure if it works with win64 or not because I have not tried it yet. I remember there was also a problem with win64 when I was rooting my Incredible but there was some sort of workaround. If it was me and I couldn’t get it to run, I would try using the XP Virtual Machine that you can install with Win7 Ultimate. Just an idea…

      This guide clearly describes that it backups only your apps and apps data. It’s explicitly mentioned that you need to manually backup the SD card data prior to flashing.

    Hello, thanks for the article. All work perfectly. I have change my 4.2.1 YAKJUXW become 4.3 TAKJU JWR66Y.

    The problem occurs when I try to restore my backup data using NRT V.1.5.2. which is no option for TAKJU JWR66Y on the list of model type, so when I checked connection (by clicking List devices) I got “No ADB Devices found” message. Should I download the latest NRT app? Please advice.

    Thanks in advance

      Not a problem if device is not listed there. It clearly states that ADB drivers aren’t working, you can try either with the latest NRT or manually configure the drivers (refer our other posts).
