So after spending a whole afternoon flashing 4.3 onto the N7 via fastboot and finally getting root to work, I connect my N7 to the PC and get the shock of my life to see my internal storage has shrunk to 6GB...it currently says I only have 5GB free out of 6GB...is there any way to fix this ? My N7 is the 3G, 32GB model running 4.3 with stock kernel, twrp and rooted.

Just edit the steps to adapt to our Nexus 7 :) PM me if you need help with that

We've had that with the first custom roms. The only way to fix that, that I know know of, is to flash back to older stock rom, verify the storage is right, and try again.

I would download the 4.3 rom from another source and/or verify the MD5 package.

Just for laughs, perhaps you could try to reflash the kernel (which is what I think gives the reading).

That or you are the only person with a 6gb N7.

Well, I talked to two other people and they said this is bound to happen with flash happy morons like me who go straight for the IMGs...will try re-doing from step 1, or else I'll go back to 4.2.2...oh and 1 more piece of info...as I was done with flashing 4.3, my sd was formatted as well...

This has also happened to me on more then one occasion when flashing back to stock would show only 6/27.5GB available. Rebooting into recovery and reformatting fixes it.
