I'm trying to install Xposed on my Nexus 5 running 5.0.1. I used Wug's rootkit on Windows to root my device, but first of all it seems that I cannot root. I have gone through the whole process listed on the XDA page. And everything the root kit itself walks me through.
I don't see SuperUser installed after my device reboots; I have done a second test to see if I'm rooted by going into the terminal on my device and checking the symbol after the prompt is a '#' instead of a '$'. It's a '$' currently, which I'm told indicates that I'm not rooted.
It's worth noting I suppose that my device is encrypted, but I don't think this would affect anything since the encryption function encrypts only the /data folder and not the /system folder.
Does someone know if there is an issue with 5.0.1 or perhaps something else I need to be aware of? I'm not sure why this doesn't work.
