It might take a little while to show up, usually if you install an app or two from the device itself it'll show up. Give it a bit of time and it'll appear.

I used the Nexus 7 Toolkit and it was really easy :) Had no issues and flashed various different roms via CWM since :)

I found pi it I have too root my nexus 7 in order too use the Sioux axius app but I can't figure out how to do it, what itb uhs, and if it will mess up my device

Stupid typing in 4.2 is ridiculous. Doing this from my computer.Does rooting hurt your device sort of like jailbreaking? I have no idea how to do it, what it does, or anything. I want to used the sax axis app but I need to be "rooted".

OK I followed some instructions somewhere and I am tryinging Nexus Rootkit Tool. When I try to install the driver, I get a window with xx as the title and e000022f inside it.

Usually any information about rooting and stuff can be found at XDA, on some cases rooting requires unlocked bootloader, on some cases not. unlocking bootloaders nowadays means warranty void... but if your device hasn't been failing in quite a hwile, it will probably wont fail another good chunk of time anyway. Root is very convenient indeed...

I'll try that one and report back. Everyone one I've tried has had some part that has NOT gone as described in the tutorial.
