Unhappy [Q] Help with Nexus 7 2012!

So I had my n7 rooted and rom'd, but then i had to go back to stock, to return it to the sc for fixing my speaker- at least that's what i wanted.
I tried going back to stock using the nexus root toolkit, and using fastboot.
Always, i get one error or the other- sometimes it gets stuck on sending system, sometimes it just says everything failed, or 'failed to allocate so and so bytes'
Now I am thinking of flashing a custom recovery again, and then flashing stock. Is it really as simple as using a fastboot command to do so?
Or is there something else I need to do?
Thank you.

Hi,

Here's a guide on returning to stock...

Nexus 7 > Nexus 7 Q&A, Help & Troubleshooting > [GUIDE] Flashing a Factory Image with fastboot / return to stock

You can ask for help there as well. Do try another cable and another USB port on computer. Or even another computer if you can.

Good luck!

Thank you for your reply
But the thing is, i followed those and always ended up in trouble.
Right now, I dont have any rom installed, and my tablet won't boot into recovery so i know it doesn't have recovery either.
At this point, i need to know if i can just flash a custom recovery and then install stock.

Yes, you can find a stock rom, or whatever rom and try to install it.

Tho, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to flash stock. A bad cable or USB port is usually the issue.

Here is the link to the N7 2012 section. Depending on whether you have the WiFi or 3g model... Roms can be found in the appropriate development sections.

Nexus 7

I still believe you should troubleshoot the flashing issue in the first thread I linked, by asking for help.

Otherwise, any further questions or issues.. Please use the N7 Q&A section to post your issue/question.

And most roms are not 100 percent stock. So unless you use fastboot as the guide I linked details... You won't be 100 percent stock.

I'm sorry to bother again, but nothing is working- still.
I tried using TWRP but not even wiping works, and it says 'cannot mount /data' all the time.
Still no success with fastboot, always gets stuck when i flash system.

Unfortunately this is not the thread for support or troubleshooting. Please see why here...

I gave you the link to the N7 section. The Q&A section is where to ask for further help. 👍

Good luck again!
