    How to root the Google Nexus 7, unlock the bootloader, install custom recovery - Liliputing (click for full article)

    "The Google Nexus 7 is a pretty great tablet right out of the box. It has a speedy NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, a 7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean software.

    But before doing anything else with my Nexus 7 when it arrived, I wanted to unlock the bootloader, root the tablet, and install a custom recovery.

    Those three steps let you:

    Install a custom recovery or other software

    Run apps that require root permissions, such as Titanium Backup

    Completely backup and restore the device or flash custom firmware"
