This tool will root you nexus 7 install su or super su and ClockWorkMod recovery!!
i already developed a similar tool for the nexus s and galaxy nexus,this tool is based on the same code with few modifications.it should root your device in few minutes,so give it a spin and tell me how it goes :D

This does unlock your device but it didn't root it. I tried Super USer & SuperSU option & both didn't root my device. Even though the dialog box says your device is rooted but it didn't root. My device would stay in fastboot screen forever & I would have to do a hard reboot (hold on to the power button). For root, I had to do "adb reboot recovery" & flash the SU zip file.

Thanks for your work!

it's better to install it,but you just need the device driver for this to work

well that's weird,it should work unless their is a problem with the recovery am using (it's not booting or flashing),can you check please if the su you are using (superuser or supersu) is getting pushed to your tab ? you should see it in your file manager in /sdcard/,from what you said i see that the recovery flashed but it didn't boot this why you had to boot it manually and flash su.(note that i don't have the nexus 7 so i didn't test this completely,i tested this on a nexus s by replacing the recovery with a nexus s one to assure their nothing wrong with the script)

also can anyone confirm this issue ? and if anybody rooted successfully with this please confirm,thanks :)

well that solved a part of the thing,can you try something for me ? take the recovery from the tool folder and try using this command with fastboot while you are in the bootloader (you can get there using 'adb reboot bootloader' ) use this command to boot the recovery 'fastboot boot cwm.img' and tell me what happens,btw have you tried re-running the tool ?
could you please try it ? thanks in advance :)

This worked PERFECTLY! As long as one follows the directions... it should work just fine. I would love to give a donation for your time. Thanks again!!!! Now to get OTG working.

UPDATE: Spoke too soon. Root/CWM didn't stick. Finished the process using the info on this post: http://rootzwiki.com/topic/28585-cwmeasyroot-nexus-7/

I'm still very grateful because I wasn't able to get the phone unlocked before using this tool. Thanks again!

verison 1.1 released !, this should fix the issue making the recovery not sticking,meaning the tablet will no longer revert to stock recovery after reboots,this work is currently based on user feedback,my other tool,and root guides,i should get my nexus 7 tab soon so i will be able to test by myself until then i would be very thankful for your feedbacks and reporting any issues
thanks

    Hrm...there are a lot of ways you could improve this.

    Worked right out of the box, thank you.

    1. Install driver accordingly, for 32bit or 64bit OS.
    2. Watch the question on Nexus 7 screen to let it unlock, use volume and power buttons to choose it.
    3. Remember to turn USB Debugging back on again after first boot, it wiped out everything.
    4. Go apps drawer, go Super User and update the bin coed twice.
    5. Install Busybox Free to create busybox.

    Done, and I install TB after this to restore my apps from other android, everything worked like a chime.

    Well I am impressed. I thought for sure I would be seeing it AFTER it was shipped.

    Good job!

    This is Xda!!!!!!! (said in the Sparta scream voice)
