I can't seem to find any information regarding whether or not I can gain root access to my old dusty Nexus 7 (2013) to access my files, I can't remember my pin code on my secondary user account and i'd like to see what files i have on here before i wipe it and flash custom recovery/rom, are there no ways to exploit these things to just gain a root shell? will that even allow me to access my other users files or maybe theres another way to go about backing up all my user files before i unlock and end up wipin the device ? it's running an old MM 6.0.1 with security patch level at Aug 2016, it seems old enough to me where there would have to be a way to root without wipe, maybe with kali or something ?

Nexus Root Toolkit helps.... almost too well
I would suggest using the Nexus Root Toolkit by WugFresh It's pretty damn handy and easy to use

I would put links but I just made an account here and there are rules for noobs.....

Good Luck and Spaghetti Speed!
