Well I am impressed. I thought for sure I would be seeing it AFTER it was shipped.

Good job!

If you have an android device, installing the android sdk or not should not be a question. It's always recommended having it on your PC.

This does unlock your device but it didn't root it. I tried Super USer & SuperSU option & both didn't root my device. Even though the dialog box says your device is rooted but it didn't root. My device would stay in fastboot screen forever & I would have to do a hard reboot (hold on to the power button). For root, I had to do "adb reboot recovery" & flash the SU zip file.

Thanks for your work!

well that's weird,it should work unless their is a problem with the recovery am using (it's not booting or flashing),can you check please if the su you are using (superuser or supersu) is getting pushed to your tab ? you should see it in your file manager in /sdcard/,from what you said i see that the recovery flashed but it didn't boot this why you had to boot it manually and flash su.(note that i don't have the nexus 7 so i didn't test this completely,i tested this on a nexus s by replacing the recovery with a nexus s one to assure their nothing wrong with the script)

also can anyone confirm this issue ? and if anybody rooted successfully with this please confirm,thanks
