Default Can't unlock bootloader on my Nexus 7

I'm trying to unlock bootloader.
After command "fastboot oem unlock", I get the error:
Code:
(bootloader) erasing userdata...
(bootloader) erasing userdata done
(bootloader) erasing cache...
(bootloader) erasing cache done
(bootloader) unlocking...
FAILED (remote: (unknown error code))
finished. total time: 7.981s
Drivers installed. Device is new. Bought yesterday.
How to solve this problem? Thanks in advance.

What bootloader version?

Try this:
- Power off
- Power on into bootloader/fastboot mode
- on the PC: fastboot reboot-bootloader
- now try again

this usually fixes those kinds of problems for me.

Bootloader version 3.34.

fastboot reboot-bootloader did not help(( displays the same error.

I haven a friend with a new N7 delivered with 4.1.2 on that same bootloader, 3.34. He cannot update to 4.2 OTA. I even tried to sideload it for him with no luck. All I can deduce from this is that that JB version should not exist with that version of bootloader. Something seems borked.

How to enable debugging mode in fastboot or recovery mode? I think, that I cant unlock bootloader because debugging mode turned off. I cant turn on my device, it hangs on boot animation(like letter X).

Yesterday I download file via uTorrent. My device freezes. I turned him off. And he refused to boot(hanging on boot animation).

No way to do that so far.

When I go into recovery, all I see - this is the android icon with a red exclamation mark. Nothing more..
