Yeah thats weird idk why mine wouldn't work on either of my computers but I wasn't using quick reboot. Can you try get into cwm from the fastboot menu and see if it works? I would like to see if its a widespread issue. I would say wait to add the line until you know it is widespread issue but if it won't hurt anything then what the hell...if you haven't already.

I have been through the setup but when I try to get into TWRP from the fast boot screen the screen goes black and says Google on it and displays an unlocked lock. I have tried this a couple of times but I can't get into TWRP. I also tried CWM and got the same thing. I scan through the options using the volume button then press the power button to select recovery.
I must be doing something wrong but can't figure out what it could be. I dont really know what I am doing with this but I downloaded root checker and it says my 7 is rooted okay.
Hope someone can help me.
Thanks.

You can't get into recovery through the bootloader you will have to download an app like quick unlock through google play to boot into recovery.

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.

The link was suppose to link to my thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1794203
I've just posted to my thread with details of the VID/PID pairs, you can find more information there.

Lol yeah that is the same problem I had... nerve racking for sure. If you want to be able to access recovery from the bootloader the fix that worked for me is on my post on page 1.

So if you've rooted your Nexus 7 using this method but don't have the CWM recovery option when booting up, how can you add it without wiping the device again?

You havent flashed it or have flashed it and its not working?

you can flash or boot cwm recovery via the ToolKit without having to do anything else.

Thanks for the reply.
Just wondering why I can get into TWRP on my KF just using the power button, but I need an app to do the same on the N7? I tried your suggestion and it does work well, but why the difference?
Thanks again.
