Famed developer Chainfire is at it again, releasing a root for the Google-HTC love child, the Nexus 9 tablet, shortly after its launch date in the US. Since the source code was released just a few hours ago, don't expect the rooting process to be easy, but it's nice to know it's there for more seasoned users, and those are often the ones grabbing the Nexus line. 

Still, if you have some hours clocked with ADB and FastBoot, you can head to the source, and try out Chainfire's Nexus 9 root method, it's not as intimidating as it sounds.
