My nexus 7 hung whilst browsing so I shutdown and restarted.
On boot it displayed android man with no command.
Tried to do factory restore using recovery and when factory restore it hung at formatting /data (left for up to an hour) tried this a few times still the same.
I then deleted cache in recovery which also hung.
Now the device just displays Google and cannot access recovery or fast boot modes, if If I force shutdown it just turns off then on and displays Google again. I have had to leave it overnight to drain the battery.
Any ideas on recovery or as I suspect faulty storage on the device.

No all combinations just result in Google being displayed, Google stays displayed until force shutdown which always does a restart, only way to keep it shutdown is to let the battery run out.
Tried on vol-, also on vol+ and on vol+-

The device is 18 months old, never rooted and only done ota updates, it was not updating when it originally hung
