It's actually much easier than doing all that.
1) Download Chainfires latest root and copy to SD card
2) Download TWRP
3) With tablet on, all drivers installed and Android SDK, and tablet plugged into PC... "ADB reboot bootloader"
4) rename the recovery you downloaded from TWRP to "recovery.img" and make sure you've copied it to your ADB folder
5) Type "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" minus the quotes
6) use volume and power keys to select "recovery"
7) Once in TWRP flash SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.43.zip
8) when you reboot Superuser will be updated automatically by the Play Store
Nice tut btw!

That's the same thing just with renaming mate. I also prefer not to flash recovery fully until factory images are out, hence why I ask to backup first.

Nburnes, thank you for your contribution. Any, and all help is appreciated. However, ATG's instructions are a little clearer, and easier. I have had my new Nexus for less then 12 hours, and it is already unlocked, and rooted. Yee-Haw! Now bring on those ROMs!

Thanks, guys.

Thank you so much!

Rooted now and was able to get OTG to recognize 2 flashdrives simultaneously.
