So i've got a huge problem. I pretty much soft bricked my nexus 7 (2012). Doesn't sound that bad ha? Well it looks like none of my computers (windows 8, archLinux machine) can't connect to the device when it's in download mode. The toolkit(on linux) just shows "waiting for device" and doesn't start installing the factory image. Somebody an idea how I could get my device unbricked?!

Try it from bootloader mode instead download mode and see if it works.

By the way, great work @tatelucas. I've been looking for something like this! Also I would like to see it in Github like @kissmyarch said.

Greetings!

Works like a charm. Thanks.

You should add that we need to install the adb drivers.

On ubuntu: sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb
sudo apt-get install android-tools-fastboot

On Arch: Pacman -S android-tools-adb
Pacman -S android-tools-fastboot

I'm on Elementary OS (based on Ubuntu 12.04) and I didn't have the need to install those drivers :)

This tool is awesome! My brother gave me his N7 with CM 10.2 and in about 20min I put the stock ROM on it :D

I just got a hand-me-down nexus 7 from my parents. This root and recovery method took about 5 easy minutes on my Ubuntu 14.04 laptop. Many thanks!

Now it's off to go shopping for ROMs and kernels!

Problem with space in folder name!

Hi!

Not sure, wether it has already been reported:

unlt.sh: Zeile 717: cd: /home/guntram/Downloads/Firmware/Nexus: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
< waiting for device >
error: cannot load '/home/guntram/Downloads/Firmware/Nexus': No such file or directory

while being in
/home/guntram/Downloads/Firmware/Nexus 7

Apparently, the script doesn't encode the strings properly ;) !

Not working on Mac

I have been trying and trying but every time I run the .sh file I get....

Updating Toolkit...
unltlauncherosx100.sh: line 49: 452 Segmentation fault: 11 wget $LATEST_TOOLKIT_URL > /dev/null 2>&1
Succesfully Updated.
Initializing...
bash: unlt.sh: No such file or directory

Am I doing something wrong?

For noob like me, on mac OSX, just copy the file on root and run this command:
bash ./unltlauncherosx100.sh

That worked.
Thanks OP for your awesome work.

Doesn't work. I'm in fast boot mode, but app is displaying <wait for device>...

edit:
Tried it on windows and it worked. I mean unlocking fast boot manually. Mac OS X really doesn't like Nexus devices.

Using this script on ubuntu 14.04 I successfully bricked my grouper.
I did Flash Google Factory Image, after reboot I am stuck at animated circles logo.
Tried force shutdown but device restarts immediately.
What went wrong?!

EDIT:

I was able to get into recovery mode, wiped data/cache. did not help.
I tried to flash again, this time manual mode.
SUCCESS!

I was excited when I stumbled on this thread but I am wondering if this has been abandoned? I execute the unltlauncher100.sh. It starts to run but then I get this:

So I checked the script and its trying to pull from this URL: http://galaxy-nexus-linux-toolkit.googlecode.com/git/stable/unlt.sh

I try to access that from my browser and get a 404. So I went to the root of the domain (galaxy-nexus-linux-toolkit.googlecode.com) and I see the files available for download. None of them listed appear to be unlt.sh. How can I obtain this script?

    Universal Nexus Linux Toolkit v2.3.0


    NOW COMPATIBLE WITH MAC OSX!!!


    Universal Nexus Linux Toolkit is a bash script based program that offers an easy way
    to do all you need to do before flashing a custom ROM on your Nexus device.

    It works with:

    1. Nexus 4 [mako]
    2. Nexus 10 [manta]
    3. Nexus 7 (WiFi) [grouper]
    4. Nexus 7 (GSM) [tilapia]
    5. Galaxy Nexus (GSM) [maguro]
    6. Galaxy Nexus (Verizon) [toro]
    7. Galaxy Nexus (Sprint) [toroplus]
    8. Nexus S (worldwide version, i9020t and i9023) [crespo]
    9. Nexus S (850MHz version, i9020a) [crespo]
    10. Nexus S (Korea version, m200) [crespo]
    11. Nexus S 4G (d720) [crespo4g]

    With this toolkit you will be able to:

    - Unlock the bootloader.
    - Flash CWM recovery (Standard or Touch).
    - Root the phone.
    - Lock the bootloader.
    - Flash Google Factory Image. (Not available for Sprint Galaxy Nexus)

    DOWNLOAD IT FOR LINUX HERE

    DOWNLOAD IT FOR MAC OSX HERE

    Galaxy Nexus Linux Toolkit is Open Source! See the CODE

    HOW TO EXECUTE:
    Please extract the .tgz in the place you want, for example in /home/user
    Open a terminal and type the following:
    >[email protected]: cd "THE PATH WHERE IS THE unltlauncher.sh FILE"
    >[email protected]: bash ./unltlauncher.sh
    If you extract it in /home/user/unlt, the path to the .sh must be /home/user/unlt
    so you have to type:
    >[email protected]: cd /home/user/unlt
    >[email protected]: bash ./unltlauncher.sh

    Note: If you're running on a 64 bits OS, please install 32 bits libraries. If you're running on Linux and you didn't configure UDEV rules for your device, please run the script with superuser permissions (sudo bash unltlauncher.sh)

    Here are some SCREENSHOTS::good:

    I hope you will find it useful! :laugh:
    P.S. Sorry for my English. I'm from Argentina!

    I keep getting this error when running on OSX:

    Code:
    unlt.sh: line 767: md5sum: command not found
    ERROR: Google Factory Image is Corrupted. Erasing...
    Erased. Please try again later.

    I don't know nearly enough to know how to debug this problem. I'm trying to restore my Nexus 7 to factory defaults from a custom ROM. This should be possible, right?

    It looks everything works successfully, but my nexus 7 (2012 version 32GB) is still not rooted.
    I am using stock rom 4.3 and osx 10.9

    Any suggestions?

    That's because Mavericks doesn't ships with md5sum binary anymore, I will update this in the next days.

    Do you think to update the UNLT for Nexus 5 ?
    :good:

    Yes of course, but please wait because I'm too busy with the university right now.
