All the android devices are pretty easy to root (just rooted a nexus 10 minutes ago - mannually)... if you dont want to do it like i did, use the toolkits

Hello I am the maker of the universal naked drivers so if you need to connect get that first here:
If any users is having issues with the Nexus 7 rooting ti may be cause you hit JB already which has all exploits closed. What you need to do is unlock the boot loader and push root to your system, here's how.
1) Unlock bootloader
2) Boot not flash custom recovery from fastboot
3) mount /System
4) /System is NOW accessible through
5) use ADB to push the SU through command
6) reboot done
If you download my Transformer Prime "Urkels Fresh Start" covers this and if you replace the files and use same commands you will be good to go.

Is this just for Nexus 7? Any guides for Nexus 4?

Same process on Nexus 4
Boot custom recovery
and push files to Nexus 4, the nexus 4 does not work with the normal superuser (ChainsDD) and the variant of Chainsfire is used for now. SuperSU

I tried that, it just hands indefinately on "waiting for device" when I tell the program to unlock it.

I think I know the issue, first you must uninstall any previous drivers and use mine (which is also the default for the toolkit).
Before you run the toolkit you need to install the driver multiple times, once per fastboot and once per ADB. each mode shows differently in devices manager so you must install it for each mode.
You are 100000% having a driver issue
Please read the red below form my drivers thread:
Warning: Uninstall any previous driver package's you may have installed and also manually remove drivers by attaching your phone and going to Windows device manager and right click the entry for your phone and select "Uninstall" on the next prompt make sure to select "Delete the driver software for this device" then hit OK and reboot before installing these drivers

Ok deleted all the drivers, I try to install them from the program but I get this
Windows 8 Instructions How to Disable Driver Signature Enforcement in Windows 8: From the Metro Start Screen, open Settings (move your mouse to the bottom-right-corner of the screen and wait for the pop-out bar to appear, then click the Gear icon). Click ‘More PC Settings’. Click ‘General’. Scroll down, and click ‘Restart now’ under ‘Advanced startup’. Wait a bit. Click ‘Troubleshoot’. Click ‘Advanced Options’ Click ‘Windows Startup Settings’ Click Restart.
