mrmark is right when you un lock the bootloader your device will factory reset. After that you can set up a custom recovery to make it easier next time you unlock your bootloader.....

Why does it take Google so so long to send out OTA nexus updates, when apple sends out much quicker. It seems to take Google almost 2 months to get to UK nexus 5s for lollipop & probably the same for marshmallow :(

It's not Google, its the carriers that you should blame....

Google was actually quick with the nexus this time. I have the nexus 5, I live in the UK, and I got the marshmallow update on Thursday. The lollipop update took long for the nexus 5 considering it's a Nexus.

Or there is Wugfresh Nexus toolkit that makes this soo much easier.... The tool kit does all the work from unloching the bootloader to root to backup to custom recovery. I would suggest the Wugfresh Nexus Toolkit vs doing it manually. Wugfresh is an XDA developer....

Wugfresh ALL DAY SON! Seriously rooting/unlocking Nexus devices just got 200x easier with that toolkit.
