Hi all. Have a question about rooting my nexus 5 with 5.0 installed. I'm using the nexus root toolkit from Wugfresh. I'm following instructions from the Wonderhowto site (won't let me post link, but easy to find through Google for reference). The part I get stuck at is when my phone boots to TWRP. I first get a prompt to enter my password. I enter the PW for my phone, but get a failure message. I tried just cancelling out and hitting the install button, but I do not see a !ReadyToFlash folder. Not sure what to do now. Is it possible that enabling encryption on my phone has anything to do with this?
