i have discovered how to access the stock recovery. Can that help me somehow?
The first time I unlocked my nexus and custom recovery'd it I had the same issue. And even though it shouldn't have fixed it I
rebooted my phone and my laptop.
Let both boot back up.
Plugged in the phone with factory cord.
Sudo Adb kill-server
Sudo adb start-server
Adb Reboot fastboot
And it worked device showed up fine but would hang every time at the same spot until I sudo (I'm on Linux mint yours may not be sudo I'm not sure just terminal super user) kill- server and sudo start-server. If I didn't sudo them both it wouldn't work. And for some reason I had to do that then reboot into fastboot. If I started in fast boot it would hang just like if I wasn't root accessed. Don't know why it was finicky like that but after the first time I did it its acted normal.
