Default [ROOT] Nexus 7 Root

I have the IO version of Nexus 7 for the next 12 hours.

Anyways, I've tried most of Nexus 7 root scripts including latest Transformer Prime, Amazon Kindle, etc...etc...

The main problem with jellybeans is that root cannot be attained through /data/local as you cannot move /data/local/tmp directory as most ICS root scripts can do.

Fastest way would be to build a ClockworkMod Recovery then flash supersu zip files. But I do not have the skills to do that, but I do have the device.

If anyone needs adb pull, let me know and also let me know how to do it.

Default Nexus7 root

Hi, long time no write this forum.
I uploaded root kit for Jelly beans.

you can download shell script and archives to do it.

This is only for developers who can read shell script, and understand
what the script doing. It's not so difficult to understand ;) .

Default script

The script didn't work so I am looking into Saurik's exploit:

https://github.com/saurik/mempodroid

If someone can just figure out how to find the offset for exit() and sysresuid() we pretty much have ROOT!

Can anyone tell me how I can find this?

Unn? I tried with newest firmware(JRN84D). and I can see # prompt in command line,
when I use "adb shell".

here is the log of the tool.

the exploit which used by mempodroid is already fixed. you can't use this tool.
thanks

Looks like somebody may have a solution over at RootzWiki... I can't post a link yet, but look for "pain in the root-n7 root" in the N7 development section.

I have no way to verify if it works... Hope this helps.
