RESTOCK is a new Nexus 7 2013 repair and factory reset tool for Windows. The NRT app (Nexus Root Toolkit) is similar but is old, closed-source, unsupported, abandoned, does no eMMC diagnostics and most importantly - it offers no repartitioning. Unlike NRT, Restock is specialized and optimized for Nexus 7'13 only, with streamlined operation and minimal user input.

If fastboot mode is available, then no matter what software problems like bootloops or softbricks are observed, or what custom ROM you had used before - Restock will restore your tablet to original, latest stock image, factory setup in 10 minutes (more time for one-off components download if necessary). Unforeseen issues should be reported in this thread and hopefully will be resolved within 24 hours.

If fastboot mode is not available, try the unbricking guide first.

For hardware issues, check this thread.

FEATURES

  • supports both flo and deb variants
  • small app download size (2.5MB)
  • automatic latest stock image (mob30x) and USB driver download from official google.com locations
  • robust, reliable USB device detection and driver installation - tested on Windows: XP-32, W7-32/64, W10-64(1809)
  • eMMC memory test and diagnostics
  • automatic device unlocking
  • option of repartition to original factory layout
    - precise and reliable for any eMMC size, including 64GB and 128GB mods
    - required for repartition scripts which check for original layout and flashing specific custom ROMs like e.g. Ubuntu Touch
    - advised for selling in original factory condition and resolving difficult ROM flashing issues and starting from scratch
  • minimal user interaction and fully scripted auto-processing
  • the Restock script is open for inspection, corrections and improvements; post your comments and suggestions here
USAGE

  1. download the attached zip file
  2. unzip it
  3. double-click on "restock.bat"

RESTOCK 2

SCRIPTS
  • restock.bat - the main script: stock install, repair, repartition and factory reset
  • addons.bat - install TWRP custom recovery, mob30x-fix1, root/Magisk, ElementalX-N7-6.17 kernel
  • fstrim.bat - faster eMMC writes: dispatches TRIM command for all unused filesystem blocks
  • safe-unlock.bat - unlock without data loss
  • getlog.bat - diagnostics #1
  • relog.bat - diagnostics #2
ADDONS
These addons should be installed immediately after RESTOCK and before Android setup:
  1. TWRP deb/flo custom recovery (it must be flashed before the other addon options)
  2. MOB30X-FIX1 - improved Android 6.0.1 stock MOB30X installation, info: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=4021757 In short, it adds WiFi 'Skip' setup option and removes old GApps to increase space on the system partition
  3. root/Magisk - https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk
  4. ElementalX-N7-6.17 custom kernel - I recommend to preset "doubletap2wake" and "battery life extender". For car use also preset "USB OTG + charge mode", info: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2389022
ERRORS
If you see errors, copy and report them. Run getlog.bat and include "getlog.log" in your post. If possible, also run relog.bat and attach "relog-xxxxxx.zip" to your post.

FSTRIM
For optimal eMMC performance run fstrim.bat from time to time.

SAFE UNLOCK
Unlock your device without data loss. MiFlash is described in the Unbricking Guide:
https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=75360854&postcount=199
Do not proceed unless you have read the unbricking guide and downloaded all components.




OPTIONS

Try mob30x-fix1 for improved Android 6.0.1 stock installation.

Next consider CROSS : 1-click installation of secure, up-to-date Android 7-to-11 custom ROMs, including TWRP, repartition, root, etc. as easily as RESTOCK.


🤞

Thanks for this k23m although I hope to never have to use it. My Kingston equipped Nexus 7 is still going strong and it's my most used android device. If I run the emmc memory test and diagnostics would it tell me if the emmc is about to die and determine its overall wear and health?

Hello Tmzdroid, your Kingston was from a newer production batch and probably is OK but maybe do not try any major OS/ROM changes as this most recent case demonstrates. The eMMC generation used in N7 has no "SMART" flash wear diagnostics like in SSD. This feature was introduced in eMMC v5+. Restock can identify Kingston if it has standard partitions and checks for the terminal, most common, read-only condition Kingstons suffer from. In short, the test can not indicate eMMC degradation level. The only forewarning you may get is a period of slow-downs prior to going read-only. If you feel it is happening, do fastboot format cache and if it takes longer than 2 seconds, it is almost the end and time to get your data out of the tablet, while you still can.

:highfive:

I'm getting "Incorrect device" trying to use Restock to recover from flo-deb_clamor_repartition. It's definitely flo, I am looking at the bootloader right now. fastboot format cache completes in 0.086 seconds. flo 32G, rev_e, bootloader FLO-04.08, no carrier, secure boot enabled, lock state unlocked.

edit: got going again with https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2381582

Thank you for this! It fixed my deb model <3

Thank you for confirming that it works on deb. I have 3 flo's but no deb to test.

Would you be able to post a log from the attached script? Unzip and run it in Restock's folder.
:fingers-crossed:

:fingers-crossed:

Strangely, it won't run unless I run as administrator. I double-click it and nothing happens. If I run as administrator then it runs in c:\windows\system32 and doesn't list the contents of the directory you want... I even tried moving restock's folder into my user dir instead of under downloads just in case something about the path was causing problems. No idea WTF that is about. Perms look good. I went ahead and just ran the commands manually from a CMD shell in the proper directory, looks like they produced the output you were looking for... except the find command doesn't work there. Maybe it would work in command.com, dunno.

I'm not sure how much help this will be since I used other tools since trying to use restock, but here it is anyway.

It seems your Path env exceeds the limit:
Code:
Path=C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Oracle\Java\javapath;C:\Python27\;C:\Python27\Scripts;C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath;C:\WinAVR-20100110\bin;C:\WinAVR-20100110\utils\bin;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files\PuTTY;C:\Programs\Argyll_V1.7.0\bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Windows Performance Toolkit\;C:\Program Files (x86)\GitExtensions\;C:\Program Files\Git\cmd;C:\Windows;C:\ProgramData\ComposerSetup\bin;C:\Program Files\Calibre2\;C:\Program Files (x86)\sbt\bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Common;C:\Windows\system32;C:\Users\drink\AppData\Local\Android\Sdk\platform-tools;C:\Program Files (x86)\GNU Tools ARM Embedded\5.4 2016q3\bin;C:\Users\drink\AppData\Local\Android\Sdk\platform-tools;C:\Program Files (x86)\Nmap;C:\Programs\ffmpeg-20190208\bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\Atmel\Flip 3.4.7\bin;c:\programs\fastboot;C:\programs;"%~dp0data"
My path has only:
Code:
Path=C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\
Please do:
  • Edit the path - Control Panel / System / Advanced System Settings / Advanced tab / Environment Variables button / in System Variables select Path / click Edit
  • copy original and save for reuse later
  • replace it with: C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\
  • save
  • reboot
  • run Restock
It should work now. As your N7 is already fixed, just close the window when it stops at "Note: Android flash takes 2 minutes, initial boot takes 7 minutes" and nothing will be flashed. Also, don't go ahead with "Restore original partitions? [y/n]" if it is offered.

If it still does not work, login to Windows with an admin account and then run Restock.

I was just thinking I want to restore my Nexus back to 100% stock, and magically this recent thread appears. Worked perfectly. Thank you.

Strangely, only custom ROMs are working for me. I always get bootloop whenever I flash any of the razor Nexus Factory Images. I also tried the script you provided and finishes successfully, but when booting, it always end in bootloop with Google logo on it. I have access to fastboot and even can flash and boot to TWRP with no problemas. Any idea?

EDIT: Attached logs after re-running the script

It is a very interesting case. We need internal logs, please 'install' get-logs-sdcard.zip in TWRP, find 'logs.tgz' in the root of internal storage and post it here.

Thanks for the quick reply, here I attach the logs... Seems like the /persist partition is empty, maybe thats the cause of the problem?

However, I can understand why that happened, maybe because I used the /system partition script for increasing its size...

EDIT: Somehow the XDA file uploader says invalid file for .tgz format, I recompressed the folder to a .zip file

The 'persist' partition is not empty, you can see its contents in the log's 'ls_persist' file, but its SELinux contexts appear incorrect. Try this:
  1. in TWRP backup your original 'persist' with the attached p4-backup-int.zip
  2. go to my old post here, get those files and restore my 'persist' partition
  3. boot stock ROM

Still no luck. I have re-run the get-logs script and some file permissions have changed in le_persist (checked with a diff comparer), as well as new file called settings. Flashed factory image MOB30X and bootloop, then flash UnLegacy rom android 8.1.0 and boots with no problem. Cant understand what is happening... Maybe it is possible to use UART debugging to get some logs?

EDIT: Attached the new logs

EDIT: Attached the new logs
This new log is much better. The timing was right and it had captured 'last_kmsg' with mob30x bootloop log, note:
Code:
[    4.865234] init: Starting service 'logd'...
[    4.873748] EXT4-fs error (device mmcblk0p23): ext4_mb_generate_buddy:741: group 1, 32282 clusters in bitmap, 32356 in gd
[    4.873962] Aborting journal on device mmcblk0p23-8.
[    4.874664] Kernel panic - not syncing: EXT4-fs (device mmcblk0p23): panic forced after error
...
[    7.987304] Rebooting in 5 seconds..
[   12.994476] Going down for restart now
[   12.994628] in panic

This new log is much better. The timing was right and it had captured 'last_kmsg' with mob30x bootloop log, note:

Yeah, I had the idea of checking last_kmsg just after my previous post. Saw that mounting mmcblk0p30 was causing kernel panic. Ran TWRP Format Cache and err well... Bootloop was now in the boot animation (maybe I had to reflash factory image, which I didnt). Didnt see about mmcblk0p24, will format cache and post feedback. Thank you!

    RESTOCK is a new Nexus 7 2013 repair and factory reset tool for Windows. The NRT app (Nexus Root Toolkit) is similar but is old, closed-source, unsupported, abandoned, does no eMMC diagnostics and most importantly - it offers no repartitioning. Unlike NRT, Restock is specialized and optimized for Nexus 7'13 only, with streamlined operation and minimal user input.

    If fastboot mode is available, then no matter what software problems like bootloops or softbricks are observed, or what custom ROM you had used before - Restock will restore your tablet to original, latest stock image, factory setup in 10 minutes (more time for one-off components download if necessary). Unforeseen issues should be reported in this thread and hopefully will be resolved within 24 hours.

    If fastboot mode is not available, try the unbricking guide first.

    For hardware issues, check this thread.

    FEATURES

    • supports both flo and deb variants
    • small app download size (2.5MB)
    • automatic latest stock image (mob30x) and USB driver download from official google.com locations
    • robust, reliable USB device detection and driver installation - tested on Windows: XP-32, W7-32/64, W10-64(1809)
    • eMMC memory test and diagnostics
    • automatic device unlocking
    • option of repartition to original factory layout
      - precise and reliable for any eMMC size, including 64GB and 128GB mods
      - required for repartition scripts which check for original layout and flashing specific custom ROMs like e.g. Ubuntu Touch
      - advised for selling in original factory condition and resolving difficult ROM flashing issues and starting from scratch
    • minimal user interaction and fully scripted auto-processing
    • the Restock script is open for inspection, corrections and improvements; post your comments and suggestions here
    USAGE

    1. download the attached zip file
    2. unzip it
    3. double-click on "restock.bat"
    4. follow the prompts

    RESTOCK 2

    SCRIPTS
    • restock.bat - the main script: stock install, repair, repartition and factory reset
    • addons.bat - install TWRP custom recovery, mob30x-fix1, root/Magisk, ElementalX-N7-6.17 kernel
    • fstrim.bat - faster eMMC writes: dispatches TRIM command for all unused filesystem blocks
    • safe-unlock.bat - unlock without data loss
    • getlog.bat - diagnostics #1
    • relog.bat - diagnostics #2
    ADDONS
    These addons should be installed immediately after RESTOCK and before Android setup:
    1. TWRP deb/flo custom recovery (it must be flashed before the other addon options)
    2. MOB30X-FIX1 - improved Android 6.0.1 stock MOB30X installation, info: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=4021757 In short, it adds WiFi 'Skip' setup option and removes old GApps to increase space on the system partition
    3. root/Magisk - https://github.com/topjohnwu/Magisk
    4. ElementalX-N7-6.17 custom kernel - I recommend to preset "doubletap2wake" and "battery life extender". For car use also preset "USB OTG + charge mode", info: https://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2389022
    ERRORS
    If you see errors, copy and report them. Run getlog.bat and include "getlog.log" in your post. If possible, also run relog.bat and attach "relog-xxxxxx.zip" to your post.

    FSTRIM
    For optimal eMMC performance run fstrim.bat from time to time.

    SAFE UNLOCK
    Unlock your device without data loss. MiFlash is described in the Unbricking Guide:
    https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=75360854&postcount=199
    Do not proceed unless you have read the unbricking guide and downloaded all components.




    OPTIONS

    Try mob30x-fix1 for improved Android 6.0.1 stock installation.

    Next consider CROSS : 1-click installation of secure, up-to-date Android 7-to-11 custom ROMs, including TWRP, repartition, root, etc. as easily as RESTOCK.


    🤞

    I had this mad idea to install Android 11 on my old and unused Nexus 7 but right after the first try with the repartitioning, my microusb stopped working (forever)... so my tab started sitting on the table totally empty with a messed partition.
    Hopefully a friend of mine had a Nexus 7 with broken screen so I just took its motherboard (avoiding the microusb soldering) and did all over again the procedure.
    Again I had problems with the connection but this time was the cable. Infact even if kept perfectly/unused I've found that not all my cables were good for this procedure so I just used a Samsung cable and everything worked.
    So, just giving an advice: before doing everything, just test your ports and cables :)
    Aaaand big thanks to all the devs who keep alive this great device, especially @k23m who guided me through all this procedure!

    @k23m
    I feel guilty pushing users your way but, you know more about this than I do.🙃
    Logs are attached to quoted post.
    I am not that familiar with k23m's scripts or processes.
    Sorry, I do not have much time this week so, I will not be able to look into it until the weekend.
    I replied to your post in this thread in hope that you may get help faster than I could provide.

    Cheers. :cowboy:

    Thanks ipdev, I am in contact with the user via PM already.

    Cheers!

    Well, it finally booted! But it took some attempts... Seems like there were problems in both mmcblk0p23 (cache) and mmcblk0p30 (data), so tried fastboot format cache and fastboot format userdata, but somehow it didnt work. What it finally make it boot was to format data and format cache from TWRP. What a nightmare!
    I'm afraid, it's not over. The eMMC flash memory IC is faulty and with no spare NAND blocks the issue will unpredictably show up at random partitions. If it works now, then do not flash any new ROM again, keep it read-only as much as possible and the Nexus will be still usable. Note that the lifespan of your 16GB eMMC is half of the more common 32GB model. It is possible to replace eMMC and even upgrade it to 64GB, more info is here.
    :good:
