Today I decided I would play around with some different ROMs. All was going well. I was becoming adept at flashing, booting, restoring, repeat.
All the ROMs I had tried up to this point were 4.3. I decided to go with something different. I installed OmniRom, which went okay, other than the fact it wouldn't recognize WiFi signals.
As any modern-day geek would do, I took to Google. I found a pretty promising solution that had me flash a firmware zip. This the point at which I made my mistake. As I should have remembered, firmware is DEVICE SPECIFIC. I did not bother to look at what device it was for as I had included "2013 Nexus 7" in my Google search.
The zip I flashed was for the Oppo Find 5. Facepalm.
My device will now not boot at all. I have tried charging for an hour or two from a computer, then a wall charger. The computer does not recognize the device. I've tried every possible button combination to get into recovery, fastboot, normal boot, etc. None have worked.
Anyone have any ideas?
