Here's a dumb question. Hwo do I fully back up my Nexis 7? Plug it in and just drag everything to a folder on my PC?

Another question is can updating to jellybean un-root cause superuser seems to have stopped working?

if you're on the stock rom and you updated OTA then yes it will remove the root if you don't have one of the root keeper apps installed on your android

Will it relock the bootloader?

Do is rooting even worth it? I'm not even sure I understand the concept. Is it like Jailbreaking on iOS? I'm only even looking into it because I wanted to try the Saxaxxis app and apparently it needs the device to be rooted.

Does rooting void your warranty?
