Default Android 4.4.2 update

I'm new to this forum and was wondering if I update my nexus 7 (2013)to android 4.4.2 without a unlocked bootloader, custom recovery, and not rooted, would I be able to root, get a custom recovery, and unlock the bootloader after I update?

Yes, you can do it at anytime. Just remember that unlocking the bootloader will wipe your device including wiping whatever is in your storage. Just like doing a factory reset it wipes Everything! AFTER you get a custom recovery you can do a factory reset from inside of recovery without wiping your storage.

Toolkits? Yes, the only one I can think of off hand is wugs, or something like that, either here or in the Nexus 5 forum. I've never used toolkits, have you given any thought to learning adb? It's not that hard, the fact that I can use it proves my point!
