    I dunno 'bout you, but have you tried a toolkit? Nexus 7 toolkit for bootloader unlock, rooting, custom recovery, etc.
    yes i did... and nothing. because my computer does not recognize the device. and therefore I can not use any tool ... following a tutorial i install some drivers and the computer recognized it as APX

    Recovery won't work as you need a bootloader to boot into it... hmm I wonder if you could get a copy of the bootloader if you could use nvflash to have the tablet use it as a boot image just once so that you could install a bootloader... might work I'll ask around and see what happens

    I have managed to do the same thing by following a BAD post on another forum on howto get your nexus7 rooted if toolkit way doesn't work even with drivers that recognize your nexus.
    (mine would sit at "sending recovery (6480 kb))

    It had you do the following steps:

    fastboot oem unlock <-- this works
    fastboot erase boot <-- yup gone
    fastboot erase cache <--- this also
    fastboot erase recovery <-- wow this is gone too
    fastboot erase system <-- and no more system
    fastboot erase userdata <-- user data bye bye
    fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-grouper-4.13.img <-- hangs like b4 and so we reboot from power off
    fastboot reboot-bootloader
    ping -n 10 127.0.0.1 >nul
    fastboot -w update image-nakasi-jop40d.zip


    Reason for using this method was because any normal flashing would just hang waiting for image to be loaded for recovery (be it CW or Stock)

    Now I have a nice boat anchor. But maybe all's well, I bought it from Wally world where I am going to exchange it.

    Wish me luck..... and this will be the end of me trying to get root on a nexus7

    Well, I have a new nexus. Walmart exchanged it because I told em it just won't boot, and the fact I got it just a week ago.

    No more rooting this for me till I get tired of it or have a real need to root.

    Hey, great to hear you got a new Nexus. Too bad you had to screw the rest of us over to make up for a problem that you caused for yourself.

    Why don't you take a steaming fresh bag of feces into Wal Mart and tell them you want your money back because the bananas you bought the day before just don't look as good as when you bought them. I don't mind paying more for my purchases down the road...

    Guess what guys, I got another Nexus 7 here that I think may have a similar problem. I used the Nexus 7 Rootkit 1.5 to try and unlock the bootloader, root, and install CWM on my Nexus 7 (HSPA+). I got the green light from the toolkit saying the process was completed and tablet booted into CWM Recovery. After rebooting the device, the root didn't seem to take and I noticed the file /system/recovery-from-boot.p was missing, but didn't think much of it as I had CWM, so when I went to reboot my tablet into recovery again the Nexus powered down, never to boot up again. The device is unresponsive. Any combo of power and volume buttons does nothing. I tried turning the device on while attached to my PC though USB and I heard the Windows sound when you plug in a device, but the tablet didn't display anything. adb devices shows me nothing. The battery was about 70% full when it occurred so I don't think it's dead, but it is on the wall charger now.

    From reading this thread, it seems no one has any good leads on what I might try to do besides try and get it replaced or pay to have it fixed.

    Any other suggestions?

    *EDIT* Nevermind. It booted back up. Strange, I don't know how or why, the battery is still at 77%. I'm just glad it's alive. *EDIT*

    try this.
    Tegra Android Developer Pack (TADP).

    Download the "Tegra Android Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) OS Image for Tegra3 Developer Kit (Cardhu)". this contain the nvflash, bootloader and apx drivers.

    I know this is for ice cream sandwich but Once installed you can change it to nexus 7.

    I tried it but it did not work for me... let me know...

    Right on! You fixed your own issue. Ever since I read your original post I was worried about doing something similar with as much as I hack and root my devices. Thanks for the follow-up. This restores my faith in the Android Community.

    This very much rings a bell for me young newbies, I say this only because I my self have owned a ADP1 and now own a Nexus One and have ran into similar issues. For some weird reason Google made the choice to start selling devices to people whom have no real knowledge about dos/linux, but one thing I can tell you is that aside from ripping unsigned google images to have a custom "UI" which I myself have entertained and my cousin and I have built roms ourselves... Samsung 8007267864 and Asus 8886783688 and finally the funny cats at Nexus 8558363987.
    The only reason why I give you these numbers is because the manufactures DID NOT right the software for these devices my friends.. these devices are all "Google based Roms" and long after I chose to stop entertaining SU permissions or Root access as you call it, and custom roms/or unsigned images... you can still screw up your device big time by pushing and pulling data through usb fastboot mode (which doesn't require unlocking the bootloader or su permissions) but if you device came with a unlocked bootloader you one) can flash unsigned images and two) if you do screw up your usb port like i did on my ADP1 and Nexus One? HTC Corp had to release to me the "stock google RUU"!
    Which is what allows you to reflash your own device at home guys, call your manufactures! Man, call HTC or goto their website all the stupid At&t phones have them, ask google and samsung and LG and asus how they can charge you for software that isnt theirs! Thats why im not buying a new nexus.

    Yo, listen up pro's.
    ur brotha is such of a genius but it can be unbricked easily. you need to connect ur n7 to ur PC and flash the bootloader via ADB service.
    search for google, download the special .zip and flash it via flash

    I don't know hardly anything about this stuff. However, my N7 is also in APX mode and I can't get it to do anything, not even show charging on display, and computer says its an APX and can't download any driver for it. I downloaded the toolkit but have no idea where to start to fix it. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I think you need a JTag repair. My Nexus 7 is in the same condition. No response, no key combos, nothing, just darkness. I was told by someone here that he needs to send it to Texas for repair of the JTag and will cost me $80...

    Hi,

    Me too got the same problem.. But the solution is, try pressing volume up + volume down + power button for 10 seconds, it loads into fastboot mode. Then you can flash bootloader from it..

    It worked for me...
