If you're a frequent ROM flasher, then you already know the tools of the trade – ROM Manager, ClockworkMod Recovery, TWRP, Goo Manager, etc. – but now it's time to add another to the list: ROM Installer from JRummy. If you're not familiar with Rummy, he's been putting out top-notch apps for root users since the OG Droid days. He's responsible for killer tools like ROM Toolbox and Root Browser, among many others.
Well, that didn't take long. TeamWin has just dropped a new version of its TWRP custom recovery designed specifically for the Flo – the new Nexus 7. As usual, it's a fairly simple procedure with a Nexus device to get a custom recovery running, which allows you to flash root. The Android 4.3 SuperSU file is already out there, so we're ready to go.
The Team Win Recovery Project (stylized "TWRP") is an alternative recovery software for various Android phones and tablets. TWRP tends to focus on newer, more interesting features, as opposed to the more established ClockworkMod recovery. A few TWRP fans have created a support app for users of the custom recovery and posted Alpha information to the XDA Developers forum, allowing users to install new ROMs, backup, restore, and wipe their device from within Android.
