Hi all,

Since I'm new to this forum I was not allowed to post on the developers threat, so I made a new one hoping some one could help me.

My new nexus 7 arived a few days ago and I had rooted it using the Nexus root Toolkit 1.5.4. (android 4.1.2)
Than I installed a new custom rom (PARANOIDANDROID 2.2) on the nexus but I did not like that rom so I wanted to restore it back to the stock rom.
When I tried that using the Nexus root toolkit 1.5.4 I kept saying FAILED.

I think it's going wrong with the first step (Sending 'bootloader').
I'm restoring to android 4.1.2 because that one is using bootloader 3.41 and if I try to restore to android 4.1.1 I get some other error messages with the bootloader.

This is on a windows 7 x64 bit machine, I tried 2 different cables, the stock cable and the cable from my nexus s3 with both didn't fix anything and I tried every usb port (for some reason only usb3.0 ports work with my computer...)


I even tried restoring to stock + unroot on 2 other computers (win 7 x64 and win 2008 r2 x64) and both are stuck at: sending 'bootloader' (2092 KB)...

So basicly I do get in to fastboot, but I can't get any further than that, Recovery mode gives my an open android with a "!" in its "belly" and the option "Start" get me stuck at the bootlogo from the custom rom (PARANOIDANDROID 2.2).

I hope you guys can help me with this anoying problem.

Btw. I'm sorry for my bad english, this isn't my motherlanguage and it's late.

EDIT: the tablet is stuck on "google" with an unlocked lock logo when I try to turn it on.
EDIT2: On windows 8 x64 it is saying too many links.

I just kept trying and it fixed itself, eventually I let the battery die than I charged it for 2 hours and I tried it again on my windows 7 machine wich gave this error message: FAILED (data transfer failure (Too many open files in system)).

well i fixed this by putting the usb cable into a usb 2.0 port instead of the 3.0 one.

So try another usb port if you still have problems.

Same here. Fixed it afterall!
Was about to give up on Nexus 7 2012 due to write failed messages when flashing the larger files like system.img and complete roms including factory roms 4.4.4 to 5.1.1. (upon booting stuck on animated google logo)

I did notice the error messages were different in output as was the time at which they apeared after pressing the enter(return) key. Another indication may have been the slowing down in responseness of the fastboot commands (erase,format,reboot-bootloader etc).

The less obvious solution, which makes no sense at all to me, was to switch USB ports on my MAC 27 (late 2013) . I ended up with sucesfull flashing using the last USB port on the right. That is on the right when sitting in front of it while the ports are on the back....

To sum it up: Not all USB ports are the same afterall? Wether 2.0 or 3.0 or voltages i have no idea. Suppose same may be true for PC's of any brand.

Don't try giving up.
