Hi SP,

Well I didn't realize I had lost root  :o So now I've been trying to re-root and I've tried a few times with now success.  I am unlocked but just can't seem to root.  I have downloaded, and I think followed the guide, but still no go.  One thing I see is that my current build number does not seem to be listed in the tools (JSS15R).  Any ideas?

With version 1.0.4 of Mark's toolkit you can select build JSS15Q and root will be restored to your Nexus 7 on build JSS15R. If you are using the free version of Mark's toolkit, it has not been updated to version 1.0.4 yet and you will have to get the donate version or wait until Mark updates the free version. I experienced the same issue with Wugfresh's toolkit as well, but I do not know if Wugfresh's has been updated to support the latest builds or not.

If you donate through Mark's toolkit the minimum is 3BP and you get the key immediately, but if you can wait 24 hours you can specify a lesser amount by clicking "donate to me" under Mark's name at xda and specifying which toolkit you are donating to. Remember there are different toolkits for the Nexus 7 2012 and the Nexus 7 2013.

Ah, very good Prime... Looks like the min donation now is 4 GBP... around 6usd.  I just donated and we'll see how it goes.

Quick question. With Android 4.4 coming up, I want to make sure I do this right, because it will be the first OTA update I've encountered since I rooted originally.

When I update, should I flash back to the stock android image? And then update? And then reroot (restore) with the toolkit?

Will I need to unlock it again, or just reroot?

Thanks!

We  never really know until the update drops. Wait until the advanced users figure out the upgrade issues and then follow their upgrade path.

Eh, no joy here...  I didn't even know I had lost root.  But when I checked with 'Root Checker Pro' it says no root.  I do have busy box installed and I did use the Pro version of the Skipsoft tool kit.  The tool kit said 'enjoy boot' so it thought the process worked.  I've tried it a couple of times but always the same result.  Any ideas?

Yeah, SuperSU says, 'There is no SU binary installed, and SuperSU cannot install it.  This is a problem!'

Think I may try wugfresh...
