After about a hour of trying.( uninstalling drivers, trying a different computer) I found this and it fixed it. If this turns out to be a widespread issue this is a pretty easy fix.

Browse to your SDK directory and futher into <SDK>\extras\google\usb_driver
Open android_winusb.inf in your favorite text editor.

Find the appropriate section Google.NTx86 if your on 32bit or Google.NTamd64 if your on 64bit (doesnt matter that your using intel chip). Now find the ";Google Nexus 7" line inside that section and you'll see a series of settings below. Add the following lines at the end of that block.

Code:
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_4E44&MI_01
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_18D1&PID_D001
These are the identifiers for the Nexus 7 recovery and bootloader usb connections.

Thanks for the info.

In the driver pack made by 1wayjonny (and the one used in the ToolKit) the first line is already included in the google nexus 7 section the inf. The second line is in the section for the samsung galaxy nexus.

Did you install your drivers through the ToolKit or via another method? Im just not sure if the second line can be added to the google nexus 7 section in the inf file which would mean both are included when drivers are installed.

The source you posted doesnt lead anywhere can you post where you found the info and if its good I can just add that extra line to install the driver.

Mark.

This is great! This is the only method that worked for me. I would lose root and stuff doing it any other way. Thanks for this!

I haven't even used this yet, but I wanted to donate for your work.

Confirmation number: 5M0683778X2063948

Is there any way to use TWRP instead of CWM for recovery? Or would that have to be changed after the fact?

Edit: Yes, there is! Option is available during the install process.

I used the toolkit first and when I had tried everything I could think of I uninstalled the drivers and tried the manual method. I thought it may have been some interference caused by my Gnex since my tablet was showing up as a Samsung phone in the device manager so I switched to my other laptop installed the kit and used the install method included in the kit. When that didn't work I went to the Asus website and downloaded then drivers directly from there and still no luck. I found that post after almost giving up for the night and after I changed the line ( I only added the bottom one bc the other was already there) the recovery finally stuck.

I sent a pm to the op to see where he got the info I will post when he gets back to me.

I was hoping you would show up with a tool kit like this for the N7! I have been using your toolkit for the Galaxy Nexus with great success and just had great success with yours on the N7

It could be implemented just as easily into the ToolKit's drivers from 1wayjonny by just adding the bottom line into the Nexus7 section. That line is already in the Galaxy Nexus section but it wouldnt do any harm adding it to another section if the driver is required as you said.

Im tempted to just add it anyway lol.

Worked a treat! My recovery is there when I reboot to recovery using Quick Reboot from the market. I did not have to add anything further to get the recovery to stick. Thanks very much for your work, and enjoy the pint I bought ya.
