Nexus 10, 7 & 4 rooted.
You have all three?
I like to keep up my skills with the command line, but sometimes the kits can come in handy.
No, I wish. I used to have the 7 now I just have the 10. The pics are from a dev who had them rooted before they were even on sale.
I would really like to get the 7. I had a hard time deciding on whether to get the 10 or 7. Came down to specs...I think that the 10 will be better down the stretch. Now that I see there are hidden LTE radios in the 4, I might have to look into that to replace my GNex (if the radios are actually functional...fingers crosses).
Version 1.6 with Nexus 10 support is now available.
Does the root/unlock process factory reset? i have a xoom wifi thats not rooted because the process wiped the tablet.
The process of unlocking the bootloader is what wipes the device. Actually installing a custom recovery and rooting the device does not. I would suggest backing up any data that you already have on the device first. Once you have unlocked the bootloader, you do not have to worry about wiping the data.
ill unlock the bootloader before i do anything with it then im golden. On the other hand if i never want to install custom roms i could just root and be done without losing a thing.
Just remember to use something like titanium backup or app2zip to backup any apps that you would like to reinstall.
