Ok, I did try that once originally , a black box popped up saying daemon started on port ....., but seemed like it wasnt doing anything , how long generally does it take for this tool to complete ?

Ok, I thought I had the correct drivers installed since windows 7 recognized the Nexus 7, I did find the yellow exclamation in device manager , updated the driver and now we are all good...thanks!!
Does this root program work on the HTC EVO LTE?
I used this last night to root a N7, which is why I posted it here. I don't think there's much risk to messing anything up, as I used it on my TF201 as well (and people have had great success with it on the TF300 and TF700s too). If something does get messed up, you may be able to do a factory reset, or load the system image on the SD card and flash it via bootloader. All in all, though, I think it's pretty low-risk, and easier than unlocking if you don't want to go that route.
Pls bearr with me am a noob when it comes to rooting
I haven't done it yet
Is it compatible with nexus 7 3g??
Will all my applications retain after root or is any backup required ??
How to factory reset?? ( I don't want this to happen)
HOW to unroot ??
Any piece of advice to a noob??
Try grabbing Nova launcher from the play store, u don't need any root access and u don't need to delete your current launcher, plus u can import your current settings

I just root my nexus 7 in less then a minute! Fantastic! BIG THANKS!!!Hi all,
I just rooted a nexus 7 using the motochopper toolkit made by djrbliss. He gets full credit for the method, I just modified it to work for the N7 by updating the adb files within it (tested on Win7 64-bit, N7 wifi). Oh, and if something breaks, it's not my fault
Indeed it would be amazing... and very useful... but as I've indicated in a previous post, 4.3 implements a new security model designed to protect itself from exploits (ostensibly of the malicious kind), so it's very unlikely this (motochopper) or any other exploit in the future will work.
If you want root on 4.3, you're going to have to do it the old fashioned way...
1) Unlock the bootloader with fastboot.
2) Fastboot flash a Custom Recovery (CWM or TWRP).
3) Using that recovery, flash Chainfire's modified SuperSU root updater.
Thank you so much for your replies still run windows xp will that still be ok to root with please.
I have rooted Nexus with this method (very easy, THANKS!), but the idea (at least for me) for rooting was to use an external SDCARD or pen disk with an OTG cable connected to Nexus 7.
But this I can't do, I have used OI File Manager and Root Browser to explore pen disk but I can't see external SDCard with these apps.
Can someone explain me what I am doing wrong? Thanks

[*] Pushing root tools...

[*] Waiting for device...
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
[*] Device found.
