Bricking and Boot Loops on Nexus 7 2013 WI-FI
I have encounter an error on two separate Nexus 7 Wi-Fi 2013's that believe Towelroot may be the cause of.
Last Friday I install Towelroot onto my Nexus 7 2013, rooted it, install a custom kernel (elementalx) and everything was perfectly fine until the next night when the tablet froze rebooted itself
and never got past the Google boot screen again. I returned the bricked Nexus 7 to the store and got a new Nexus 7 2013.
Yesterday I installed Towelroot onto my new Nexus 7 2013, rooted it but did not install a custom kernel. Almost immediately whenever the tablet froze or lagged the tablet would reboot itself and either get stuck at the Google screen or the Nexus logo screen. Once stuck the tablet will reboot itself and repeat the process until I either shut off the device or it eventually boots into Android, it can take 20 or more cycles.
The only real difference at least to me is that one tablet had a custom kernel and one did not, also I do not believe Towelroot is causing the leggings or the freezes but I think it's doing something once the Force Closes occur. I have never seen this kind of a behavior before from a device that I have rooted, I find the correlations very odd. If anyone has any work around that would be great, I just reinstalled towelroot and rooted the Nexus again just to be sure and so far so good.
