Root 'exploit' for the Nexus 7 - Root without unlocking the Bootloader!

Root 'exploit' for the Nexus 7 - Root without unlocking the Bootloader!

An 'exploit' has recently become available that allows the easy ROOTING of the Nexus 7, without unlocking the BOOTLOADER.

...by running a simple script on your PC...

---------------------

Unlocking the BOOTLOADER (normally the prerequisite for ROOTING) has the undesirable side-effect of wiping the device.

This 'exploit' doesn't wipe anything... run the script, reboot and you're rooted. Piece of cake!

Here is the link...

[Root][JB 4.2] Root your Nexus 7 without unlocking bootloader. (djrbliss motochopper) - xda-developers

----------------------

I have extensively tested this, and I can confirm it works on my 'grouper' Nexus 7 whilst running STOCK JELLYBEAN 4.2.2 (JDQ39).

Hope this is of use to someone.

Rgrds,

Ged.
