Several days ago we published a tutorial that told you how to successfully root Google's upcoming Nexus 7 tablet using ADB commands and Android SDK. Now, an XDA community member and developer managed to create a one-click root utility that you can use to gain root-access for your Google Nexus 7 tablet. Read the instructions listed in this article and you will learn how to successfully manage to apply the root at first try.

The One-click root method for Nexus 7 is great for users who are beginners, as they don't know how to properly use command prompt, ADB commands and Android SDK tools to root their devices. This rooting Nexus 7 utility will install CWM Recovery also and this means that you can use it to flash new custom ROMs and improve the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean ROM or to remove bloat or any other JB feature you don't wish to use on your device.

Please note that in case your device's bootloader is locked the all the data stored on your device will be lost and you cannot retrieve it. That's why you should make sure that your Google Nexus 7 tablet has an unlocked bootloader and only afterwards you should root it. In case your tablet's bootloader is locked and you still wish to go ahead with the tutorial, then you shouldn't blame us in case your Nexus 7 won't work or you lose data or some other thing goes wrong. Note that you're applying this One click root method for Nexus 7 at your own risk. Before moving to the tutorial guide, you should backup all the important data.

Now that you know all of the above you should begin the rooting process for your Google Nexus 7 tablet.
