Rooting Nexus 7 2013

How to root Nexus 7 (2013) - link - @ laptopmag

Some not-so-obvious details:
Nexus 7 will not be seen by ADB by default. You need to go to Settings -> Storage -> (Menu) USB computer connection -> uncheck MTP and check PTP. Then allow the computer hash to access the device via ADB. Only now will device be visible in Root Toolkit.

Before unlocking, as usual, don't forget to make backups, including APNs and potentially other data that is only stored on the tablet. The apps can be restored from the market so that's not critical.
