How to root Nexus 10 on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop (LMY47V) [Guide]

Nexus 10 Lollipop [1]The Google Nexus 10 has a fresh OTA update available with the build number LMY47V. The aforementioned build number bumps the software up to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. If you are already running that version on your Nexus 10 tablet, you can open the internal hardware away from the manufacturer’s restrictions by following the guide below.


Only follow the guide if you own the Nexus 10. Do not install the files on any other Nexus tablet or smartphone or you might brick it.



  1. Setup ADB and Fastboot on Windows [3] if you don’t have it already.
  2. Download SuperSU 2.46 [4] to the computer.
  3. Connect the Nexus 10 tablet to the computer and transfer the SuperSU file over to the root of the SD card.
  4. Download the clockwork-touch- [5] to the computer and copy it over to the same folder where you have fastboot.exe (usually C:\adb)
    – now you can use the steps from the command prompt.
  5. Completely power down the tablet and reboot to Fastboot mode. Do that by holding the Volume Down and Power keys together until the fastboot/bootloader menu appears after a few seconds.
  6. Open the fastboot folder and right-click on a blank white space while holding down the Shift key. Now select to open the command prompt from the menu.
  7. Type the command: “fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-touch-”.
  8. Wait for the display to change and select recovery from the Fastboot menu.
  9. From inside recovery, choose to “flash zip from SD card” and browse for the SuperSU file.
  10. Confirm the upload of SuperSU and then navigate back to the main recovery menu and select to reboot the system now.

Once done, you have root access on the Android 5.1.1 LMY47V Lollipop and ClockworkMod recovery installed so you can start flashing new custom ROMs.
