Today in this article I am going to give a complete tutorial on 'How to Install, Restore, Recover and Root Google Nexus Tablet Using NEXUS 7 Toolkit'. Read on this article to find out the full detailed guide to perform installation of Nexus Toolkit on to your Google Nexus 7 Tablet.

With the increasing sales of Google Nexus 7 tablet in the market the number softwares and apps being released for the tablet have also increased manifold. The development activity for Nexus 7 has also increased greatly owing to the sales of Google tablet.



After the success of toolkits for Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S3, the XDA Elite Recognized Developer mskip has released the Nexus 7 toolkit. The Nexus 7 had one of the best pre-launch development scenarios. The tablet had plethora of custom ROM, custom kernels and roots but lacked in an overall toolkit with multiple functionality. Such all-in-one toolkits are extremely essential for performing different adjustments on your Android device such as installing drivers, creating backup or restore points, rooting and unlocking the bootloader.

Using these toolkits also avoids using multiple hacks from different sources and places which might complicate simple processes on your Android device.

The Toolkit for Nexus 7 as released by XDA Developers serves multiple functions and carries them out in a very small time including:

  • Installing appropriate adb/fastboot drivers on your Windows XP/Vista/7 (32 bit and 64 bit) systems on the tablet.

  • Creating backup or restore for all data, storage and apps on your Android device using a single package.

  • Installing single or multiple apk(s) to the tablet.

  • Unlocking or relocking the bootloader.
