    Default How long until N7 is rooted?

    Since they gave them away to the devs as a gift, I'm guessing by Monday.

    There's no exploit to find when rooting a Nexus device - unlock the bootloader, copy superuser.apk to /system - and you're rooted. It was designed to be rooted.

    The real question that we should be asking is how long until there are custom ROMs for it. I see the wider nav bar and all I can think of is how many more icons I can cram down there.

    I wouldn't be surprised if ROMs dropped within 24 hours of Google releasing the 4.1 source code.

    I plan on unlocking/rooting first thing. Thankfully all those devs will iron out the details before we get ours .

    The process of unlocking the bootloader is the same as any other nexus

    Apart from deodexed and png-optimized builds (you'll need a custom recovery to flash), you'll need source for CM (and variants) which won't happen for another couple of weeks.

    They should put that in the setup in the nexus devices.

    "do you want root access?"
