Default [Q] Nexus 7 (2012) - TWRP No OS Installed - Are you sure you want to reboot? Bricked?

Hi, I booted into TWRP recovery mode to attempt updating my rooted Nexus 7 from 4.2.2 to 4.3. I wiped system, dalvik cache and cache. I also (stupidly) wiped data and internal storage too. Now I cannot turn on my Nexus 7 fully, it only shows the Google insignia with the unlocked boot loader icon below it.

I can boot into recovery mode and I can USB host, I tried copying a zip of the stock 4.2.2 ROM for Nexus 7 wifi onto my flash drive and tried flashing under the "install" section on TWRP but it always fails (I do not know why).

I cannot connect my Nexus 7 to the computer. Can anyone help me out, please?

adb sideload nameofrom.zip
adb sideload gapps.zip
Reboot

Either flash a custom ROM from recovery or use the Wugfresh toolkit to flash a stock ROM.

Agreed, the toolkit works like a charm.
I had also deleted the whole Os and fixed it with the help of the toolkit.

Not sure why folks keep telling you to flash a custom rom when you ha e clearly stated that it fails. So, heres my two cents......

Since you already wiped the internal memory and there is no chance of data loss, just download the stock image and fastboot back to a fresh system. And for gods sake, dont use wugs. Just use good ole fastboot. There is a very easy how-to in the stickies of this section. This forum is full of problems arising from toolkits, that could have been easily avoided by fastboot.

I SECOND that use the toolkit from wugfresh for this.

ADB sideload and Fastboot is a real pain with TWRP don't know why the file does not get pushed at all.

Save yourself time and just use the toolkit if it's a Nexus device if Samsung find a similar toolkit tool

The site for toolkit is wugfresh . com ( no urls so the space )

Hope this helps someone

Good luck
