user level: android noob, but have a good grasp of comp stuff (I used to kill my own viruses when limewire was the defacto way to get download)...
comp, Win 7, old athlon dual core 64 4600, 3gb ram...
My n7 hasnt loaded kitkat, and I was getting annoyed with the constant "update ready".
I tried several times to install it, but each time it turned up an error....
Today I thought I would force an update with Skipsoft toolkit.
All seemed to go well, then....
things froze.....both comp and tablet and toolkit
I walked away, I didnt touch anything...for 2 hours. I literally went outside to do some errands, hoping things would "fix themselves".
I came back and disconnected, the tablet but the computer was still frozen...so I waited a few then, restarted the comp...
Now my tablet was stuck on the "google" screen.
I figured out how to get into the fastboot screen,
then the CWM screen.
from there, Ive tried,
Nexus Root Toolkit,
ADB manager (still not sure what this does except for downloads files, none of the apps in the toolkit file do anything)
a couple of various tutorials (http://www.droid-life.com/2013/02/12...stom-recovery/) this one requires the tablet to be awake, but Ill be darned if I can get it to do anything...
On the good side of things, the Skipsoft toolkit, recognizes it, it displays the serial so theres hope. I hope.
But its never recognized in my computer, it did make the beep boop, when ever its dis/connected, until the I was trying the nexus root kit (they ask to remove drivers etc).
99% of the tutorials ask for the debugging to be activated. well it was but now...who knows.
with the skipsoft I get:
insecure boot image found
stock recovery image found
cwm image found
twrp image found
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^are these on the tablet or the comp?
once Im into the cwm screen, Ive cleared cache, and partition etc, nothing seems to help.
can someone help me before I brain my damage?
