Unhappy [Q] Need Help stuck in bootloop after flashing recovery

So just as the title says i decided to root my n7. Everything seemed to go smooth until my nexus 7 was stuck on the boot animation screen for about 20 minutes. I tried doing a factory reset in TWRP and it said wipe failed. I decided to flash CWM instead and do a factory reset but i couldn't. It said error mounting /data. I'm not sure what to do googling around didn't seem to work.

TWRP gave me a message saying SU is not installed after i installed the recovery so i clicked instal SU. I'm not sure if that contributed to my problem or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ok so i figured this out.

So for anyone who ever gets into an endless bootloop with the inability to wipe data you need to do the following.

1. Download the latest Factory image from google.
2. Exctract the files into your platform-tools folder an run the "flash-all" command this video illustrates it perfectly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsss9e71bKo
3. And you're done! hopefully this helps someone out
