    I am trying to use the Mark Skippen tool to root my Nexus 10 and I guess I need to know how we can tell if a device is in fastboot mode as on the main menu screen it shows a serial # under the ADB mode and I have been unsuccessful using Step 8 (1 click for all) which requires fastboot.

    If it is not in fastboot mode,, what do I do to get it that way or what other options do I have,.. the tool hangs and says waiting for device...

    This is what I see in Device Manager:

    To use fastboot, power off, then hold down the power button and both volume buttons. That will take you to the bootloader screen where you, or the toolkit, can do fastboot commands.

    To get to the recovery menu from the bootloader screen, press the volume button and you will see the label change in the top left. When it says "recovery", press the power button. When it gets to the next screen with just the android, press and hold the power button and then press the volume button one time. You should be in the recovery menu in just a second.

    I just ran the tool thanks to your help and I chose #8 and it finished in a couple of minutes with the message congratulations you are now hacked.. or something like that,.,, How do I verify that I am rooted and what should I do next ?

    Download an app that requires root, like Titanium Backup or AdAway or AdFree Android. If it doesn't work, it should tell you that you need root access.
