    Default Re: [GUIDE] How to Unlock and Root the Nexus 7

    I have managed to unlock bootloader ,Root and CWM on my Nexus7 with Paul O'Brian's superboot.
    Everything went OK but when I tried to flash stock 4.1.1 recovery as instructed it fails to return me to stock image.
    Loads Ok in the program at CMD prompt but when I reboot Nexus there is no factory image.
    Any suggestions please.

    You may need to copy the image to phone and then flash it.

    What do ya mean?
    You can't access stock recovery the same way you can cwm etc.

    What do you see when. You try to get in recovery?

    Great guide, thanks!

    I'm going to unlock and root my Nexus 7 when I recieve it later today. I want to use rooted stock firmware on it. Should I also install custom recovery?

    If I don't then I can update OTA and root it in the same way as the first time, right?

    If I install custom recovery then I can flash the new firmware when it comes out, pre-rooted or root it myself using this method.

    What option is the best?

    I hope that you understand what I mean, I'm not a native english speaker. Thanks in advance!

    This process won't permanently flash a custom recovery unless you delete or rename the file "recovery-from-boot.p" from your /system folder. Just don't do that and you can root while keeping the stock recovery, and receive OTAs normally. You can also install OTA Rootkeeper free from the Play Store before you get an OTA to help you keep root through the OTA process.

    My Nexus 7 is now unlocked and rooted, no custom recovery. I will keep it like that and use Rootkeeper when updating OTA

    I was able to unlock the bootloader but when I try to root it doesn't seem to work... Does this work for 4.1.2? using windows7 and the r3 superboot

    Try flashing this file from the recovery (which you'll need to reflash/boot into from the bootloader):

    When done, boot up, open SuperSU and update the binary if it asks to, then update it from the market it will probably need that.

    I am a bit confused. Ive been able to unlock it and restore back to factory using the other sticky. I have attempted the video walkthrough (wont go into clockwork but just reboots) and Ive tried this walkthrough on my mac (which also didnt work) I have tried it on all three different usb ports on this computer.

    so from the bootloader what commands would i use to flash that file?

    which file you mean?
    on a mac, if you're already unlocked: reboot into bootloader mode, then cd to the r3superboot folder. (lets say its on your desktop - do this in terminal:
    cd desktop (then press enter)
    cd r3superboot (then press enter)

    then do this in terminal:
    chmod +x install-superboot-mac.sh (press enter)
    ./install-superboot-mac.sh (press enter)

    the nexus says booting image after i type those commands, but after that (it reboots) there is no change. Should that have installed something on the nexus?

    look in your app drawer for superuser.

    or try to download and use something that requires root, such as rom manager or titanium backup.


    having root access doesnt really change anything except the permissions you can give to certain apps (basically).

    np here's what ya do:

    first, download this:
    and place it in your tablet's download folder on the sd card via usb connection.

    then, download this:
    when that's done downloading, you'll have a recovery file in .img format: put that file still compressed as a .img in the r3superboot folder.

    then, cd desktop > cd r3superboot

    then, enter this command:

    ./fastboot-mac boot recovery nameoftherecoveryfile.img

    and press enter.

    that will temp boot recovery - so then use recovery on the device to install zip from sd card > choose zip from sd card > find that jb su .zip in your downloads folder or wherever you put it on the tablet, and select it to flash.

    that will give you superuser/root access.

    1 - your mac didnt automatically decompress the file, right? it's still an .img file on your cpu, correct?
    2- its placed right inside your r3superboot folder, right?
    3 - no hidden extensions on the file? like, make sure the file isnt hiding the .img extension and thus getting repeated like: .img.img
    4 - try it like this:

    ./fastboot-mac boot recovery-clockwork-touch-6.0.1.0-grouper.img

    leaving out the recovery just gives me the usage help menu. I also tried this on my windows pc and got the same cannot load recovery. I had switched to the mac thinking I might have messed up the driver installation. I didn't expect to have this much trouble

    yeah i dunno whats up. usb debugging is turned on on the tab right?

    try this: rename the recovery file "recovery.img"

    then do the command in terminal like this:

    ./fastboot-mac boot recovery recovery.img


    another thing you can try is downloading the recovery file again to your cpu, maybe you got a bad dl?? that's possible i guess.

    you know you could also just go through the root portion again - maybe it just didnt stick, and if you try it again on the mac it might go thru ... i would try those couple of things and see if we can get one to work.
