No problem. Always glad to help. Unfortunately, I can't recommend any toolkits because I've never used any. It's always easier for me, personally, to do everything manually. That way, if something were to go awry, I know exactly what the problem was and can correct it. It's super simple. I did it the same exact way I've done my GNex in the past, and my current Nexus 5. Just make sure you have the correct drivers installed. This is where most people's headaches come from.
These are pretty much the instructions I followed: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2507905
Just unlock the bootloader, install recovery, and flash supersu in said recovery. Obviously, just substitute the recovery file with the one that's specific to the N7. I went with Philz recovery (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2485264
I am by no means a tech genius, so if I can follow these steps, I believe you can too!
