Unhappy [Q] Kind of Bricked My Device (Nexus 7 3G)

So what happened was that I tried to install the update of paranoid android's latest version. Since TWRP cannot install it, I used CWM. All my back-ups are in TWRP so I had no chance to restore. Now, my device is stuck in recovery mode. I could enter the fast boot mode. Now I don't know what to do since all guides in restoration say that I have to enable USB debugging, something impossible in a device which cannot enter the interface.

Please help. Thanks

You only need fastboot access so you don't need usb debugging, but you will need the Android SDK.

1) Read this guide.
2) Download the latest factory image from here.
3) Follow the guide from the "Flashing the Factory Image" section's 4th point.

Good luck.
