In case you are new to rooting and feel its only for geeks, we wrote about a tool, Nexus Root Toolkit which can automate the process of rooting for your device. It downloads drivers, updates and roll in to your device and root it. It is also possible to unroot your device using the same tool.

Before rooting or installing new updates, a backup is maintained if you want to revert back. Read more about this here. Just make sure to choose the right model when using the software.  Remember you don’t always need an unlocked bootloader to flash a factory image. You just need adb/fastboot. The application takes care of that too.

You can download the factory images from here. and start installing it on your Nexus.
