My nexus 7 is in a boot loop I can get into it by holding the volume buttons but it just reboots. Also it won't stay shutdown when I get it power off it goes into boot loop. Any suggestions

Volume down and power doesn't get you to bootloader mode?

Sounds like power button might be stuck.

Its the button it all works now after I did a factory reset. But if it gets warm the power button malfunctions. Also it will not shutdown completely it always reboots.

You should flash twrp through a shell and flash a ROM for your device. They have lots for the nexus 7. I'm actually working on one called flojoy if you have the WiFi only. I also know of a pretty rooted stock ROM (4.4.4) with busybox.its here: http://www.scottsroms.com/downloads.php?do=cat&id=94

This could also be caused by a bad battery. I know it doesn't sound like it could be related, but I have been through a few devices that have behaved like this that were fixed by a battery replacement. Not the easiest thing to do on this device, but not hard either.

Your right. I'm using omni nightly and bricked kernel and it is a lot better.
