Folks, there is no difference in the rooting procedure if you have the latest toolkit.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE LATEST TOOLKIT OR IT WILL NOT WORK
Buy nexus 7
Power on tablet
Go through setup (dont restore/backup from google)
Let it update to 4.2.2 if not already
Settings-about-tap 'build' 7 times to unlock developement settings
Development settings- enable USB DEBUGGING - connect usb cable to computer and nexus- now WATCH THE NEXUS SCREEN! in 4.2.2 and above it will ask SEVERAL times for permission to enter debug mode.
After youre sure you are in debug mode, right click toolkit and 'run as administrator'... Your device should be found at the top of the toolkit now under ADB Mode Serial...
Root tablet as you normally would and DONATE TO HIM FOR MAKING THIS NOOB-FRIENDLY TABLET.
