[Q] Nexus 7 Cannot boot into recovery and cannot
So I recently bought a nexus 7 32gb (first generation) and used it for about 30 minutes, then I applied what I presume was a faulty update and it has soft bricked my tablet.
Heres the scenerio,
-I cannot get my nexus 7 into usb debugging mode because it wont boot up into the actual interface and such
-Everytime I try to install the ADB drivers, the system installs it as "google nexus 7 bootloader interface"
-recovery mode will not load up, it ends up at the google screen with a text on the topright saying "booting failed"
-I'm pretty sure my bootloader is locked which could be another reason why I cant do any of the methods involving cmd, nrt, or that manual android sdk toolkit thing.
As far as I know right now (which is barely anything since I'm new to using this tablet), I can't do anything because I cannot get into usb debugging, nor can I get the tablet to read as the ADB interface / pass the full driver test in NRT.
Hopefully someone can help (Very descriptively please!) , thanks!
Sidenotes : my boot loader menus states the following...
Product Name - Grouper
Variant - Grouper
HW version - ER3
Bootloader Version - 4.23
Baseband Version - N/A

Signing - not defined yet
Lock state - Locked
Also, It was fresh out of the box, I think the tablet was updated to 4.1
