Justin Kardan: yo do you need drivers or does it come with some´╗┐

Royce Johnson: So when you backed up, then rooted, are we able to use the toolkit once again to restore the backup we made, thus restoring everything?

D3lud3d: I've tried 3 different kits and they all stall when I'm at the step to configure with the nexus itself. The pc will say "Waiting for device" and nothing will happen on my tablet. Or my tablet will say start, to which I hit the power button to continue then it just blacks out and loads up normally. Any remedy?

Justin Bieber: Great video

Jordan Palmer: It should be known that rooting voids ANY warranty on ANY device. Even Nexus devices.

D3lud3d: Hey, it turns out it was already unlocked but i was checking the locked option. Thanks anyway

MrShawnMThomas: If anyone has upgraded to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is having difficulty rooting a Nexus 7, I was only able to accomplish this after running the Google Nexus 7 Toolkit option 9 (Download, Extract + Flash Google Factory Stock Rom). After flashing the stock ROM, option 8 was finally able to complete the batch process and root the tablet. There may be some other working method for Android 4.2 tablets, but I was not able to find a proper guide at this time.

MrShawnMThomas: I was on the stock ROM that had the OTA Jellybean 4.2 update. I would hope it would usually work like it did for you; it was a multi-hour process for me just to get it rooted. I also could not get into recovery mode after I rooted my Nexus 7 but eventually realized that ROM manager would easily take care of the tasks I needed to complete in recovery such as reapplying the 4.2 update from a file I downloaded.

InspecThaGadget: Wow, not sure why it didn't automatically work but glad you could get it working.

InspecThaGadget: Were you already on a custom ROM or are you saying you were already on stock ROM and had to reflash stock ROM in order to root? Because I was able to root without incident coming from stock 4.2 ROM.

The_Gamer: will the nexus stay rooted if i update the tablet

InspecThaGadget: I completely understand. I wouldn't advise anyone who isn't comfortable to root their device. I tried my best to explain the options pertinent to rooting. Rooting is simply gaining Root access to your device. Its like having admin rights on your PC. It allows you to have more control of your device. One could improve battery life, over clock the processor, uninstall unnecessary system apps etc.

Vincent Valenzuela: The nexus has to be off

The_Gamer: thank you for the help

km408400: That's my name korey

Lourdes baby: It is now saying "Waiting for device". How long to complete the whole process please?

Elvinas IV: Hey ! So, if I do everything you say in the video and root my Nexus 7 and ofc lose my warranty can I unroot it and get my warranty back ? I'm asking this because my english is pretty bad and I didn't understood everything you say, sorry. Please answer ! Thanks.

InspecThaGadget: You can't receive OTA updates if you are rooted. However, if you temporarily root, you can use the Voodoo Rootkeeper app to temp unrooot and get OTA or manually update. Then you can restore root with Voodoo Root keeper.

InspecThaGadget: Are you sure the proper drivers were installed? Check your device manager to see if your tablet is recognized as an ADB device.

christopher beebe: Stuck on step 2 on one click all?

Michael Porter: i don't think i want to take the risk and i don't know what any of the options do or if i want them
