Anyway, I gave up on it for about a week and came back to it this morning. Although it wasn't even going to te google boot animation, just stuck on the google logo. So I reflashed stock 4.4.2 again. Now I'm back to square 1. So it boots and will function for maybe about a minute or 2 (or less) before freezing and rebooting.
Is this device shot? I'm out of Google AND ASUS warranty now
Ok guys. I don't post often since I can usually find my answers by lurking the forums....but I'm at my wits end here. My 2012 Wi-Fi nexus 7 all of a sudden started acting funny one day. It would freeze u randomly, then reboot, then get stuck in a boot loop for about 10-15 minutes, then boot up, then freeze after about 1-2 minutes of use and repeat the whole process. This was on stock 4.4.2. I've since tried using the toolkit to reflash stock, fix bootloop, unlock and root...all of which I was able to do. None of which helped my issue. Although flashing AOKP DID seem to fix it for about an hour.
