Question Why is my device bootlooping after installing TWRP?

So the first thing I did after getting my new Flo was to use the standard OTA update to bring it up to 4.4.4, then unlock the bootloader, and flash TWRP 2.8.0.1. The recovery flashed fine, but take a look at the TWRP log every time I boot into it:

TWRP Issue

What is going wrong? If I try to boot back to the stock ROM it just bootloops. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Anyone? I just realized something else that seems odd. When I reboot into recovery (holding down the power button and the volume down button) it doesn't boot into recovery, it boots into fastboot mode. Is this something unique to the N7 or is it part of the device being screwed up?


Thanks.

It's normal that Power/Vol- will bring you to the bootloader first, and from there you can choose to go into recovery.

Something probably happened with the OTA update. Try downloading the factory image (ROM plus recovery) and flashing that. Then you can try flashing a custom recovery again.

Just to make sure, you got TWRP from here, right?
