Got a Nexus 7? Rooted it? Bricked it? Dropped it? Having Fun With it?

If you're one of the lucky first wave of Nexus 7 buyers to receive the Google/Asus tablet in the UK, you might be happy to hear there's already a fairly simple rooting procedure out there for adding extra thrills to the Jelly Bean software it arrives with.

If you crave the superior feeling that comes from owning a rooted Android device, Android Central has put together a video-based rooting guide to walk you through the process of unlocking the Nexus 7, although there are surely enough new things in Android 4.1 to keep most people entertained for the first few days of ownership already, not to mention the retro fun to be had from simply getting it out of the box.
