Well, now a days it doesn’t take much time for a new device to get a root method. Today, we have the 2013 Nexus 7 (with Android 4.3) added to the list of rooted devices. XDA recognized developer Chainfire’s SuperSU v1.41, which he cooked up to root the leaked Android 4.3 build (JWR66N) on the Google Edition Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505) seems to work fine on the 2013 Nexus 7 running Android 4.3.

Chainfire later released a newer version of SuperSU to fix the CPU spike bug. It’ll always be better to use the updated version of SuperSU (v1.43), so download that. The root is actually in the form of a zip file, so you may use TWRP recovery (CWM Recovery is said to have some issues with it, but you may still try if you have it already) to flash it. Take a look through to install TWRP on your 2013 Nexus 7 :  TWRP Recovery for Nexus 7.

2013 Nexus 7 Gets Root

How to Root 2013 Nexus 7 on Android 4.3

There is nothing much sophisticated about the root. Once a custom recovery is installed (check the link to install TWRP recovery above), it just involves booting your Nexus 7 into recovery by holding Power+Volume Down to open bootloader, selecting recovery, and flashing SuperSU from Install > Download. Done!
