We have already posted a guide to root android 4.3 on Nexus 7 devices (both Wifi and 3G versions carrier unlocked) using a method which is specific to the said device. This method, which are posting below, is universal and it will work on any nexus device including Nexus 7. However, it is better to use CF Auto Root package for Nexus 7 instead of SuperSU package because the former is more reliable and stable. For all other devices, SuperSu method works like charm.
Here are the requirements:
- Android SDK installed on your computer. Find the instructions here for this purpose.
- Nexus Root Toolkit
- SuperSu 1.50 developed by Chainfire
- And of course, one of Nexus 4, Nexus 10 or Galaxy Nexus device running on android 4.3
Step 1: First of all unlock the bootloader by using Nexus Root Toolkit which is very simple and self explanatory in use.
Step 2: You should also have installed any Custom Recovery though it is an optional step.
Step 3: Now download SuperSu package and put it into the root of your device.
Step 4: Turn off your Nexus device and boot it into recovery.
Step 5: Flash SuperSu Zip.
Step 6: You can also wipe cache and dalvik cache. This step is also optional but it is always recommended.
You have successfully rooted your Nexus device running on android 4.3.
Note: Before applying any rooting guide on any phone, first of all back up your device because you may lose everything installed on it. The contacts, message and pictures are always important and should be saved prior to handling the device with any unofficial methods.
