Default Cannot use Adb/fastboot commands on Nexus 7 (2012)

I Softbricked my nexus 7 a while back its now in a bootloop. I am running Cyanogenmod 10.0 (I believe), Rooted and running ClockworkMod Recovery, and am NOT USB Debugging Enabled. Now attempting to reflash Nakasi JZO54K (4.1.2) to soft-bricked Nexus 7 via fastboot.

I'm trying to access my nexus 7 (2012) via adb command prompts will not recognize my android device - serials do not appear when "adb devices" is typed.

I am currently following Comminus's flashing guide. When I go to device manager in windows, the android device is named "grouper" rather than "android" as I have seen before.

I don't think the root toolkit will solve this because I don't think I can even send commands to the device at this point.

Please help someone...I really don't know where else to look for help about this.

adb commands don't work in fastboot. Only fastboot commands work in fastboot.
Download the factory image from Google, extract, and run the flash all batch script while your N7 is connected in fastboot mode.
