You DO NOT need to root, just install Nexus Media Importer from the Google Play Store. I payed 2.99 for it with the $25 from Google.
I wont root my nexus because it voids the warranty, this method has worked awesome for me.
I travel fairly often and bought this primarily to connect a USB flash drive to my Nexus 7 tablet for disposable media like TV shows, which I will watch once and then delete. The thought is to use the internal storage for media that I will keep such as music, and a USB flash drive for everything else. If I burn up a flash drive I can easily replace it.
In order for this to work on the Nexus 7, you must also install the Nexus Media Importer app, which costs about $2.99.
Some videos play fine, like MP4 and WMV, while some others don't (AVI, MPG, MOV). However, these files play fine when played from internal storage. These files also play fine on my Acer Iconia from the USB flash drive, so that tells me Media Importer is somehow the bottleneck.
I connected a wireless mouse to my Nexus 7 with this cable and it worked great. Media Importer is not required to connect peripherals like mice and keyboards, only storage devices like flash drives.
My only complaint is the cable points up when plugged into the Nexus 7. I may look for another that points down.
If you just want to copy files onto your Nexus 7, I think FTP over WiFi works best, and the app is free. I use FileZilla server on my Nexus 7, and the client on my XP/Windows 7 PCs.
Note: out of the box, the Nexus 7 won't recognize external storage, even with this adapter. Google released the Nexus 7 with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), but inexplicably hamstrung it slightly: no USB OTG, and no auto screen rotation. So you will need to "root" your Nexus 7. For best results, I "unlocked" mine as well, which wipes everything back to factory conditions.
There are various guides to root (my favorite, which I did not write, is at [...]). Don't forget to install SU to give you "superuser" rights. Then you'll need to install the StickMount app, which is free on the Google Play store, so that your Nexus 7 can recognize external drives.
eForCity has never let me down. I ordered a couple of these adapters on a Sunday night and had them the following Friday.
