    I've tried the one-click method to get root on my new Nexus 7.2 and it fails. Anyone know a way to get on this new device?

    I did it "manually" from my Fedora box with adb and fastboot and wot-not. Worked pretty much the same as it did on my original Nexus 7:

    Just be sure to get a recovery designed for the new nexus 7 ("flo" for me) and not the old one.

    Wow! I'm hoping there's a much simpler method than that one. I'll wait a bit. Thanks for the link though.

    I must have had the wrong recovery because after I flashed it, booting into recovery just got me the Google screen, it never went beyond that. I'll scour Claghorn's link and try again because I miss my root!

    As it turns out, you have to boot straight into recovery from fastboot instead of allowing the device to reboot. At least, that's how I got a custom recovery to work.

    When unlocking select your model. When rooting choose the *.* option. That's how i got it to root.
