    Try rebooting all the way to the setup screen/android lockscreen, then going to Clockwork.

    Perhaps you both need to login using a Windows user that has the proper admin rights?

    It seams like the Clockwork recovery doesn't stick, I tried many times and it still gets me to the stock recovery every time, one thing I noticed though is that when I flash the clockwork recovery then try to restart the device from clockworkmod, it warns me that it might use the stock recovery at boot, I'm definitively sure I used "fastboot boot clockwork.img" but it still doesn't stick. Please help.

    Yeah something definitely got screwed up with my permissions even though I'm using an administrator account which shouldn't have a problem. I started over with a different computer and didn't have any problems other than supersu not pushing out. But I copied it manually and then flashed with no issue. Thanks for your awesome guide and video!

    I'm having the same issue as others with the sdcard not mounting. Could it be that we did the OTA update first and then started this process?

    Fastboot boot specifically doesn't write the recovery so it wouldn't stick.. Fastboot flash writes it but it won't stick until you get rid of the recovery-from-boot.p file from /system. If you can boot the recovery and flash su, so you are rooted, you can then use root explorer to get rid of that /system file, or just rename it to "recovery-from-boot.p.bak". Afterwards you might have to flash CWM recovery one more time but now it will stick.

    So my N7 is just hanging on the loading screen. Every time I reboot it the same thing. Is there any way to get it back to stock fully bootloader locked and everything?

    Start again with the video, make sure you follow it slowly, step by step... if you are running into driver issues be specific about which part is causing issues... (sorry if you were earlier I missed it)...

    You got passed the unlocking part and now are having trouble with just the flashing SU part, correct?

    Try rebooting normally. Once booted up, plug into your computer, then just move the su.zip to your tablet over usb. Then reboot into bootloader and flash CWM Recovery again using the earlier instructions, boot into it, and try again to install the su.zip... let me know ....

    How far along the process did you get.. try to be specific. If possible, you can go back into the bootloader (power down, then hold volume down and power til you get to bootloader)... plug in and do
    Code:
    fastboot oem lock
    fastboot oem unlock
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
    fastboot reboot
    Basically it will wipe everything and should let you reboot into a running system, so you can start over. If this doesn't work I'm going to write up a "restoring factory images" tutorial anyways, but lets try this...

    EDIT: Note, hit enter between all those lines above and wait for it to finish, if that's not clear... And after the oem unlock command you'll need to confirm it on the tablet, as earlier..

    So I managed to unlock and install clockwork recovery. After that I couldn't get the supersu.zip to transfer. after a reboot I got it and got into Nexus startup sequence.

    It asked me to install the update, and smartly I hit yes to reboot and install. It failed and now I can only get to the loading screen.

    I tried flashing the stock recovery back but I'm still stuck on the loading screen every time it reboots.

    Previously unlocked my GNex bootloader to get a backup. Have not rooted before. Thanks for the video....easy. I found I had to do some of the commands a couple times and reboot Clockwork a couple times, but wasn't a problem....About to reboot into stock recovery to get my 4.1.1 then back to clockwork. Thanks again!

    I think the new Clockwork version may have been causing problems with mounting the sdcard and pushing supersu.zip - I've reverted to the previous version. Anyone who is on Clockwork v6.0.0.4 try the version posted now, v5.8.0.2 if you're having problems.

    Are you referring to an OTA update? What loading screen?

    I assume the OTA. Sorry I wasn't clear about that. Yeah it prompted me that an update was available and asked me to reboot to install. Instinctively I clicked yes, it rebooted and failed.

    I'm not sure what you did... flashing a recovery has nothing to do with booting into Android. Try holding power to reset. If that doesn't work, do a factory reset from recovery. Last resort, use this to return to stock: http://rootzwiki.com/index.php?/topic/28544-[Guide]-Nexus-7-Bootloaders/Recoveries/Root/Back-to-Stock-(WIP)#entry764332

    I'll make my own return to stock guide when I get home in a couple days, but the above should work fine if you absolutely need it.

    Yeah what I did was try and do too many things at one time. Cooking dinner, unlocking/rooting, talking on the phone with the wife & answering work emails.

    Thanks a lot for Back-to-Stock link, it worked like a charm. Next time I won't be so foolhardy and I'll just focus on the important stuff.

    Glad it worked out. Yeah, multitasking is not your friend when rooting for the first time

    I'm the only user on the computer and have full admin rights. I enabled USB debugging on my Nexus (thought it may have made a difference) and went into the bootloader again, windows installed drivers listing "Android ADB Interface" automatically, but I still can't install "Google Nexus 7 Bootloader Interface". Grrr

    If you figure it out be sure to post the fix. I'll do some Googling about Windows drivers and see if I can find anything.

    Figured it out just now. The folder contents were encrypted and Windows needed them to be decrypted for the driver to install properly. To decrypt, right-click on the folder -> properties -> Advanced (under "General" tab) -> deselect "encrypt contents to secure data".

    Installing the driver worked like a charm after this.

    Thanks for your help!

    I struggled for a good 30 minutes trying to figure out why I couldn't mount the sdcard in recovery. I was also getting several error messages at the bottom of the screen about being unable to mount or read some cache folders.

    I actually gave up and just let the tablet boot up to the welcome screen, and then powered it back down and booted to the bootloader and then into recovery. Once I did this - the errors were gone, and it was able to mount the sdcard to flash the supersu file.

    Just thought I would share this in case anyone else is having the same issues.

    Thanks for the guide!
