First, reboot into your bootloader/fastboot mode. (Volume + Power Up, or adb reboot bootloader)

fastboot oem unlock

Then, install this recovery:

Then boot into Clockwork recovery and install the Superuser zip file (adb reboot recovery, or from fastboot choose recovery):

To install a rooted/insecure boot image (adb has root, THIS IS OPTIONAL, THE ABOVE STEPS ALREADY GOT YOU ROOT):

Verified, was able to root my friends with this method. Thank you.

I can't believe that its root process was really this simple, like the n1s.... I wonder if google is actually okay with us rooting our phones...
