    How to root Asus Nexus 7 Tablet?

    Recently i got a new Asus (Google) Nexus 7 tablet. I must say that it is really amazing with the new features included with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and the packaging done by Asus. It is really worth to have. But similar to all other Android devices, in order to increase the performance and productivity (and many more things) you need to root your device. I did it successfully and hence thought to share with you all guys. So, please searching for rooting their Asus Nexus 7 Tablet, follow the steps given below.

    Before we start rooting the device, you need to take care of little stuff such as:

    Make sure your battery is fully or atleast 80% charged. Your device should not turn off due to battery in between the process.

    Backup your entire device (Call Logs, SMS, Calendar, etc).

    You need few things to be downloaded before your start rooting process.
    1. Download and install Android SDK on your Windows Computer
    2. Download Clockwork Recovery and save it on your desktop
    3. Download Superuser from here and save it on your Desktop.

    Once you are ready with all these things, enable USB debugging from Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging and move ahead for rooting process.

    Rooting Asus (Google) Nexus 7:

    • First of all connect your Nexus 7 to your computer using USB Cable.
    • Transfer Clockwork Recovery and Super user downloaded files to fastboot folder that can be found under C:/Android on your computer. (Note: this folder will be found only if you have installed Android SDK on your pc).
    • Remember, donít disconnect the USB cable.
    • Open command prompt on your Windows PC by going to start menu or by simply typing Win+R key.
    • Type the following command in the command prompt and hit enter:

    adb push path-to-zip/JB-SuperSU.zip /sdcard
    cd platform -tools
    adb reboot bootloader
    fastboot oem unlock
    flashboot flash recovery path-to-img/CWM-grouper-recovery.img
    mv recovery-from-boot.p recovery-from-boot.bak
    • Enter all above commands one by one with few seconds distance.

    Thats it. You are done. Your Google Nexus 7 device is now rooted successfully. You can check/verify using apps available on Google Play whether your device is rooted or not.
