The thing that I am having troubles with is that I have a nexus 7 tablet that is softbricked, I have already gone through a lot of ways to fix that problem (I found the best solution is this:http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1809195
). However, the issue is is that I cannot get my computer to recognize the nexus tablet to flash it and restore it back to factory settings.
I have installed and updated the device drivers on my computer, but still I have had no such luck. I found that ADB doesn't recognize the device whilst in the Bootloader, but still will not recognize the device in recovery mode. If anyone has any tips, or suggestions that might work PLEASE let me know, at this point I'm getting desperate and any/all help would be greatly appreciated!
You won't get adb in bootloader mode.
You have to use the fastboot command.
Please tell the OS on your computer.
Use the tool in my signature as an environment.
Download 7zip, and install that.
Then go here
and download the proper image for your device.
It would either be "Factory Images "nakasi" for Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi)" or "Factory Images "nakasig" for Nexus 7 (Mobile)".
Grab the 4.4.2 version.
Extract the downloaded file with 7zip into the "Work" folder in the tool form my signature.
Then extract that "nakasig-kot49h-factory-83d93b5f.tar" file with 7zip.
Then go into the folder that came out of that, and extract the "image-nakasig-kot49h.zip" into the Work folder.
And enter the following commands while in bootloader.
fastboot oem unlock
fastboot erase userdata
fastboot erase system
fastboot erase recovery
fastboot erase cache
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot flash system system.img
Make SURE you grab the correct image for your device. Wifi or Mobile.
I also assume that you know the .img files should be in the Work folder before you type thse commands into my tool.
