Hello from Texas
« on: December 28, 2012, 04:52:28 PM »
I got mine for Christmas too. I don't want to root it until warranty is up, but sure am thinking about it. Hoping to learn more about Android too.

Welcome darv.  Rooting is optional.  Android Jelly Bean and the N7 is great either way.  All of my other Android devices have been rooted shortly after opening the box.  I haven't had a need to root my N7 and still haven't decided if I will or not.
I used to be crazy until I found out that insane pays more.

Where am I?  What am I doing in this handbasket?

Welcome. IMHO, the whole unlock root warranty thing is blown out of proportion. If you decide to root, in most cases  you can go back to stock just as easy. The hardest part is sending it back.

Welcome to the forum.

I wouldn't let the warranty stop you from rooting.  The same tools that unlock the bootloader and root the device can also reverse the procedure to restore the device to an out of the box condition that cannot be distinguished from a previously rooted device.  In short, they wont be able to tell.

Welcome to the forum darv. I root by choice, but I will have to admit, that the Nexus 7 can be tolerated without root.

Welcome to the family...

I have agree with Barry here and say that rooting is easily reversed by flashing the factory image, user choice though mate and I respect that.

Howdy to your post!
If the usb jack were to break, it would be difficult to unroot and flash the stock rom. Still, I'm tempted...

Relocking is the easiest…just use fastboot commands from a CMD window.

Code: [Select]
fastboot oem lock
If the USB port is broken, just let the battery die. No way to charge, no way to verify that it's modified or not.
