    Default Nexus 7: How long does rooting take?

    I am using the Nexus Root Toolkit v1.8.0, and it is stuck on booting modified boot.img to enable running privileged commands.
    Been there over 30 minutes.
    Is this normal?
    Should I retry and do something different?
    I chose Root and checkmarked custom recovery.

    Yeah this is abnormal.

    Manually done via Command Prompt and Fastboot its in the neighborhood of about 10 minutes or less once you have the necessary files and computer setup.

    Using the Toolkits its about the same give or take a few...

    I would suggest retrying. I'm assuming since your at that stage you have successfully unlocked the bootloader and flashed the custom recovery?

    I am the Tegra Champ. What this means is that from time to time NVIDIA might send me new products to try out. This will not affect my thoughts, ideas, or opinions about any product that are discussed in the forums. Those are still my own.

    I unlocked the bootloader, but didn't flash the custom recovery yet....

    FASTBOOT MODE is in red color on the bootloader screen.
    What does that mean? Could that be my problem?
