Almost all of the information from the XDA forum

I just added images, adapted to my liking, certainly add a few english mistakes

Disclaimer: I do not take any responsibility for anything you do to your phone, whether be brick, break, or somehow mess it up.

Requirements

1. You must have the Android SDK installed and you are able to access, and use adb and fastboot.

2. You must have debugging enabled on your Nexus 7.

3. Download Cyanogenmod 10 Nightlies

4. Download Google Apps

gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip + gapps-jb-picasa-20121011-signed.zip (Currently)

Be careful with : gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip and gapps-jb-picasa-20121011-signed.zip

Goo.Im

Changelog for gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip

All apps updated to 4.1.2 versions.

Google Play Store updated to 3.9.16.

Should be backwards-compatible with 4.1.1.

Does NOT contain the leaked Gmail with pinch-to-zoom. GApps do not include leaked/test versions of Play Store applications, especially when the signing key differs from the Play Store version(s).

Goo.Im

Changelog for gapps-jb-picasa-20121011-signed.zip

GoogleGallery.apk with Picasa sync enabled for use with 20121011.

This will disable any special non-AOSP camera features, like those from CyanogenMod 10.

5. A Recovery Image :

5.a Download ClockworkMod "Recovery" or "Touch Recovery".

(This is also a Touch Recovery with on-screen keyboard)

Send CyanogenMod + Google Apps to the Nexus 7

In terminal :

sudo [Path To Your Android SDK]/android-sdks/platform-tools/adb push [Path To CyanogenMod On Your Computer]/cm-10-20120908-NIGHTLY-grouper.zip /sdcard/

sudo [Path To Your Android SDK]/android-sdks/platform-tools/adb push [Path To Google Apps On Your Computer]/gapps-jb-20121011-signed.zip and gapps-jb-picasa-20121011-signed.zip /sdcard/

Unlocking Your Bootloader

1. Go to Bootloader

In terminal :

sudo [Path To Your Android SDK]/android-sdks/platform-tools/adb reboot bootloader

2. Unlock your Bootloader

sudo [Path To Your Android SDK]/android-sdks/platform-tools/fastboot oem unlock

Press Volume Down/Up to select

"Yes

Unlock bootloader (may void warranty)"

This will erase all the user data on the tablet.

Then press the Power button

See here, where are buttons

Now, your bootloader is unlocked

Flash Recovery

(You're still inside the bootloader)

Depending of wich Recovery you want to install

For exemple :

ClockworkMod Recovery

sudo [Path To Your Android SDK]/android-sdks/platform-tools/fastboot flash recovery [Path To Recovery On Your Computer]/recovery-clockwork-6.0.1.0-grouper.img

ClockworkMod Touch Recovery

sudo [Path To Your Android SDK]/android-sdks/platform-tools/fastboot flash recovery [Path To Recovery On Your Computer]/recovery-clockwork-touch-6.0.1.0-grouper.img

Team Win Recovery Project 2.3

sudo [Path To Your Android SDK]/android-sdks/platform-tools/fastboot flash recovery [Path To Recovery On Your Computer]/openrecovery-twrp-2.3.2.1-grouper.img

Be careful

The stock ROM will automatically replace the recovery you have flashed with the stock recovery.

To prevent it, go immediately in Recovery mode (the recovery you have flashed) pressing Volume Key + the Power button.

"ClockworkMod Recovery (Touch or not)" & "Team Win Recovery Project 2.3" warn you and allow you to fix it.

(I do not have pictures for this part.

Thank you to send me one that I place in this guide please.)

If not, still inside the recovery you have flashed :

A. FadedLite from xda says for "ClockworkMod Recovery (Touch or not)" :

Go to Mounts and Storage

Mount /System

On your computer,

Type in Terminal

adb shell

cd /system

mv recovery-from-boot.p recovery-from-boot.bak

B. The "Team Win Recovery Project 2.3" site says :

go to the mount menu

mount system,

press the home button

then press Advanced -> File Manager.

Browse to /system and select the file named recovery-from-boot.p

then choose to rename the file to recovery-from-boot.bak

Install Cyanogenmod 10 Nightlies & Google Apps

1. Select the option to Wipe data/factory reset.

2. Then select the option to Wipe cache partition.

3. Go to "Install zip from sdcard"

"Choose zip from sdcard"

First,

select your Cyanogenmod 10 Nightlies.zip

Choose "Yes" to install it.

Wait until the end of the installation.

Then,

select your Google Apps.zip

Choose "Yes" to install it.

Wait until the end of the installation.

Once the installation has finished

back to the main menu

and select the Reboot system now option.

Your Nexus 7 should now boot into CyanogenMod 10.

After installing Clockwork do a backup, then you can restore your rooted stock at a later date

If you followed the OP and didn't backup your stock install.. Well this should help you out :

After I tried to do this step:

The stock ROM will automatically replace the recovery you have flashed with the stock recovery.

To prevent it, go immediately in Recovery mode (the recovery you have flashed) pressing Volume Key + the Power button.

my brand new Nexus 7 got bricked! Nothing on the screen at all. Cannot connect via adb or fastboot. Power + volume up has no effect. Any ideas?

Update: nevermind! Vol down+power for 10 seconds, then let go of power got me back.

Just for the one who recently bought his or hers first second hand Nexus 7 or any other Nexus product, (Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 10) and wants to root it and install a recovery on it and got to this post, I have good news as it's been made very easy:

Go here: http://www.wugfresh.com/nrt/

And let this magic program to all the work for you.

Just follow it step by step and don't try to be smarter and you will have your Nexus rooted, with recovery and ready to rock with whatever ROM you choose.

One addition if you're halfway, ROM-manager from Google Play is also an easy way to install the recovery after the rooting process.

Hopefully it helps someone, this is Mai 2014.
