I'm NOT responsible if you bork your tablet because you can't follow simple instructions!



I've just made a simple batch file with adb, and the recovery file all in one zip for y'all.
Make sure you've unlocked your bootloader by following instructions HERE
1) Download Chainfires latest root and copy to Your Internal SD card on your tablet
2) Download and install DRIVERS
3) Download and extract nexus7_2013_recovery_A+.zip to a folder on your PC.
4) Open folder where you extranted nexus7_2013_recovery.zip
5) Make sure your tablet is powered on, and connected to the PC, then click on "Nexus7.bat" and follow instructions. (If your PC is installing drivers once it boots into fastboot, WAIT until the drivers are installed before clicking next!)
6) Be ready and hold volume up as the tablet will restart automatically, keep holding volume up until you reach the TWRP screen
7) Once in TWRP flash SuperSU/UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.43.zip
8) when you reboot Superuser will be updated automatically by the Play Store

Enjoy!

BIG thanks to Chainfire for his root, and team win recovery project for their fast work on the recovery!
07/30/13 Updated SuperSu link to latest revision (ver 1.51).
07/29/13 Updated SuperSu link to latest revision (ver 1.50).

I got through the first 5 steps. However the tablet rebooted to the OS. At step 6 how do you reboot into recovery?

Thank you very much for this, worked for me on the second try. Might I be so bold to suggest these changes to your steps to make them more clear? If not I will edit my post.

Edit - Didn't see you had a video. It didn't boot me into fastboot. I'm sure I did something wrong. Thanks again!!!

4) Open folder where you extranted nexus7_2013_recovery.zip
5) Power off your device.
6) Once powered down, hold Volume Down and Power. (this will boot you into fasboot)
7) Make sure your tablet is connected to the PC, then click on "Nexus7.bat" and follow instructions. (If your PC is installing drivers once it boots into fastboot, WAIT until the drivers are installed before clicking next!)

When you say copy chainfire's SU to the SD CARD you mean to the root of the directory you get when you connect via MTP, right? Where the Alarms/Download/Movies/Music etc directories are, right?

I see this syntax used a lot "copy to SD card" when there's not really an SD card, so it's a bit confusing (not just here). Especially since there's no obvious SDcard directory exposed when you connect via MTP to a PC.

Yes, you may want to create a folder in there for organizing all your flashable zips

Thanks guys, I haven't done much rooting / flashing with devices without SD cards before. I used the Nexus 7 toolkit to root the old Nexus 7. Everything I rooted before that had a real SD card to dump zips on - wanted to make sure where TWRP could access.

Looks like I'm still stuck at step 6. After running ADB reboot recovery, the tablet reboots and I see the dead Android with the red triangle. So I'm guessing Recovery didn't get flashed right.

So I rebooted it again. Ran the Nexus7.bat. It boots to Fastboot okay, and seems to be successfully after pressing enter a couple times. But ADB reboot recovery results in the red triangle again.
