    Awesome, do you mind if I PM you about this after I write it out so you can check it for mistakes?

    Always give credit where it's due, your guide is awesome. I followed it months ago when I got my One.
    One question; Vonnegut had this auto backup script which I'd like to include for the lazy ones, it generates a folder of .bak files which I'm not sure what to do with. I assume that you rename them to the proper extention and flash them? Are they all .bin files?

    Didn't want to include it unless I was sure about this.
    Lol maybe you should consider not clicking on the ads like you were taught since the first time you used the Internet. Or get an ad blocker.
    That would be awesome, yes, do you have Skype?

    When I type the command "fastboot oem unlock" the data doesn't get wiped from my phone nor does it start over again. Any suggestions @DaxNagtegaal

    Drivers are installed properly. Fastboot seems to be unlocked (true). Tried rooting before and it worked. Recently I updated my phone with the ota 05q (and lost root), but now I can't seem to root my phone.

    Yes I'm pretty sure you just rename the files to their appropriate extensions and flash with fastboot. They're not all .bin files, for example system and recovery are .img files. Honestly, I think that backup script is overkill anyway seeing as you can just use the stock images to revive a phone anyway. I'm probably going to remove that small section from my guide.

    Your bootloader is still unlocked from the first time you unlocked it. Losing root during an update doesn't lock your bootloader. Having root and having an unlocked bootloader aren't the same thing, they're two entirely different things.All you need to do is flash SuperSU from your custom recovery and you'll have root again.

    @timmaaa I can't seem to get in my custom recovery anymore. When I press down + power on I get in cyanogen (standard) recovery screen. Do you know that to do?

    Hmm, I think I'll leave it out too then.. Unless the things it backs up are really important, it's a bunch of partitions.. DDR, ssd, persist 1 to 4, reserve, misc, DRIVER and some more that's all I remember..


    I think there have been some instances of people not being able to root again after the 05Q ota, he should look up what to do because I don't remember
    I don't like calling, chatting was the idea :)

    You might want to remove your Skype from a public forum and PM it to me instead :p
