howto is relatively very simple:

 get supersu package
 boot into recovery (CWM/TWM), may be even the default recovery
 push package via adb PC---USB_cable---->device (select the
appropriate menu on the device first)

Of course there are many hidden rocks, but I think you cannot brick
your device easily.

On the cons, I'll tell you when I get it back from Asus (they said 3
weeks!). I had a problem with the LTE SIM card slot - it suddenly
stopped recognizing the card. No amount of
resetting/wiping/flashing/(un)locking helped...
Tried the SIM on another device - worked.

Users are free to ask.
Manufacturers are (it seems) free to ignore them.
Every train has its passengers (or, after a long time, line is closed
down), some people prefer bicycle.
These days I prefer to eat my own cooked food than at a conBini; but I
invested effort to learn how, and it takes time to cook.
(I am yet to modify my N7 to have a card slot, but I have it on the ToDo list)
