The basic idea behind going into this whole “hacking” your Nexus 7 is that you must always remember the sequence of what you are doing. Unlocking your bootloader is always the first step. The next step, usually is to install a custom recovery. The final step is to root your Nexus 7. Once you have done those three things, you can now backup your entire android system, install a custom ROM (like Cyanogenmod), and later restore if you don’t like what happens. And of course since you have root access you can also install high-level apps tht require root access on your Nexus 7.

So, as you can see, rooting and unlocking has some great advantages and unlocks new possibilities for your Nexus 7 Tablet, something not quite possible on Apple iOS devices.
