So I seem to have soft bricked my tablet (Nexus 7 2013 LTE). I can get into fastboot mode (but not into the recovery menu) then I am stuck on the Google logo. Does this mean the device is repairable?
Device manager on Windows shows the tablet as
- an unknown device (no drivers installed / Samsung (Wugfresh) / Google drivers)
- Android bootloader interface (Snoop05's tool)
- Android ADB Interface (PDAnet (Wugfresh)).
On all of them the driver is not correctly installed and I have the exclamation mark showing on device manager. I am unable to access the tablet via fastboot or ADB at this time.
I have tried every permutation I can think of so am turning to the hive mind for advice.
To compound matters I am in Turkey and I don't speak Turkish. I've been in an internet cafe for about 5 hours now and it's 1am (Turkish keyboards have an ı where i should be and you can imagine how many times I have mistyped). I am on a year long cycle tour and the tablet has my music, books, guidebooks and dictionaries on it so I am pretty hacked off. Especially given that I've only just arrived...
I did manage to connect via ADB yesterday but ran out of time as I was borrowing someone's computer and can't replicate the steps. Gah!
I have backups of all my data so essentially I would just like to factory reset. Any help gratefully received!
