It's not the same as Windows. You can download the ADT Bundle for Linux.

I'm not sure which recovery images should be downloaded.

Is this one correct? - recovery-twrp-tilapia-2.3.2.1.img

what does this mean? "rename your select with the name of the recovery image you chose to download."

Requirements:
...
4. Download:
CWM (Touch version or not) or TWRP and rename your select with the name of the recovery image you chose to download.

thanks

Yes, you can use the recovery-twrp-tilapia-2.3.2.1.img without problem

and when I writes "rename your select with the name of the recovery image you chose to download", I mean that you can rename the IMG file by "recovery" simply. It's more faster.

Default minimum steps to root Nexus7(3G) - for beginners

confused by too much info. on how to root Nexus 7

can this be as simple as:
1 unlock
2 root

question:
1. unlock step - erase all of your data on the tablet
If I don't care my data (I just bought it), after unlocking, can Nexus start as normal?

2. Why do we need flash the recovery?


"Pre-Steps
To make this easier,
1 - ...
2 – You should put the recovery.img selected on the folder “fastboot” (if you use the easy way - Goto post #2)

" fastboot flash recovery recovery-twrp-tilapia-2.3.2.1.img"

does "recovery-twrp-tilapia-2.3.2.1.img" mean the "recovery.img"?



thanks

Answers:
1 - Yes, the advert is clear, all of your data will be erased !
2 - If you want to flash a rom custom, you need a recovery

Yes, it's correct. it's more faster to write: "recovery.img" than "recovery-twrp-tilapia-2.3.2.1.img".
It's the same file, just rename.
This has no effect on the recovery flash

Default Re: [GUIDE] - Updated 08 Feb - Unlock and Root a Nexus7 3G “Nakasig- Tilapia”

I received 4.2.2 update today. I haven't installed it for fear of losing root. Should i repeat the procedure to root again after updating my n7. Will i again loose my data? Or the bootloader will remain unlocked? Please help

I can flash UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.04.zip in CWM/TWRP recovery to get root after update from 4.2.1
You will not loose any data.
Your bootloader will upgrade to 4.18 and still unlocked.
