HOW-TO
Extract the downloaded zip file on your pc,install the drivers available in the "drivers" folder if you don't have them already installed,after installing the drivers run the file called "root.exe" to root your device.

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
