    You should give this XDA post a thorough read. It should help answer any questions you may have about rooting your N5.

    If you have any more questions, we are here to help!

    Yes, take a look through the thread referenced above, it goes into detail and has very informative resources that you should know. Once you root, head over to the Franco thread in the original development forum. Franco provides the methods to install the kernel in his first post. The best way is going to be through his paid app, which also provides tools to customize the kernel to you liking.

    Let us know if you have any questions.

    Do you need to use a PC/Mac to root your device?
