Ok have you tried going into the bootloader and getting into recovery?

If you get a android with a red triangle just press Vol-Up and power then clear the cache then do a factory reset and then reboot and see what happens.

If after the reboot your still in the same boats as you was before the apx flash then i think it could be due to a messed up partition somewhere (bad block on emmc) i am still looking for other ways of recovering the devices that have bricked but Nvidia has decided not to reply to my messages (Thats the mobile team support for ya!)

I retried the flash and it got to the spinning nvidia logo for a few secs, then it froze and the screen messed up and jumped around pixelly. Then shut off and started getting incredibly hot and wouldn't stop. Seems like bad manufacturing to me.

It sure looks like that as my first on did this as well. Seems its a hit and miss. My first one died due to the battery getting way to hot and killing the tablet the second one i stopped at 4.3 and i haven't had any issues. So not sure whats causing the issue out right.

Take its out of warrenty?

I hope advent will replace it even while in another country, I got it while under warranty but I'm currently in Belgium. It didn't even last 1 month before dying.

If no luck you could try Nvidia directly via their support

Posting an update. Whenever I try the fix from the advent flash it finishes, reboots and gets stuck at tegra note again.

Hi mate, OK how many times have you flashed via the APX ???

Can you get back into fastboot?

If you can try a fastboot -w and then try booting again.

Well I decided to try a full dead battery then left it to full charge)(charging screen still shows fine) then run the flash and now it still hangs, not sure how to enter fastboot with this tablet.

Press and hold Volume Up + Power Button till a black menu comes up then go to fastboot protocol.

Then issue the fastboot command!

If doing the fastboot -w hasn't fixed it the last thing you can try is the following


Download this: https://mega.co.nz/#!3R1GTAxY!ZeQRTs...r-8BeeWWuKhd94

Extract this to where fastboot is then type the following.

fastboot flash staging blob
fastboot flash dtb tegra114-tegratab.dtb

then reboot and see what happens!

Just in case anyone still has these issues I'm going to post how I found a way to resolve them. I had all the problems mentioned in the previous posts and more besides. The inability to apply OTA updates, the device would freeze after 5 seconds of inactivity, endless boot loops, failed recovery partitions etc etc etc.

I tried a butt load of different solutions but none worked for me. What did work is described below. Others have already mentioned that Advent has a stock rom recovery utility, however, even after flashing that my problems still remained. So I downloaded the Advent stock recovery util and documentation and modified it slightly to the latest Android release for the Tegra Note 7.

Do as follows:

1 - Go here and download both the Advent Vega Tegra Note Factory Image (4.3) util and the documentation.
2 - Extract the Advent Factory Image zip file (as described in the documentation) somewhere on your pc.
3 - Inside the extracted folder you'll see a bunch of files. The three files we're interested in are the "recovery.img", "system.img" and "boot.img". Select all three and delete them.
4 - Now download the Tegra Super Tool utility here. At the time of this post the latest version is 2.5.
5 - Extract the downloaded Supertool to a new folder on your pc.
6 - Inside the extracted folder there are another bunch of files. Again, we're only interested in three of them. You're going to rename three of the files and use them to replace the three files you deleted earlier. At present their names are "4.4.2-2.5recovery.img", "4.4.2-2.5boot.img" and "4.4.2-2.5system.img.ext4". The filenames will obviously change as time goes by, but a little common sense goes a long way at this stage. So "4.4.2-2.5recovery.img" is renamed to "recovery.img", " 4.4.2-2.5boot.img" is renamed to "boot.img" and "4.4.2-2.5system.img.ext4" is renamed to "system.img". Once you've renamed them, copy them into the folder for the Advent Vega Tegra Note Factory Image which you extracted in step 2.
7 - Now go and read the documentation for the Advent Vega Tegra Note Factory Image util. Just take your time and follow it to the letter. It'll tell you how to put your Tegra Note 7 into it's APX mode, install windows drivers for it and begin the recovery of your device. It's mostly an automated procedure and fairly simple to follow as long as you follow the documentation.

This method brought my Tegra Note 7 back when it had several of the problems mentioned earlier in this thread, all at the same time.

Hope it helps someone.
