    Default Nexus 7: failed hard reset - now it wont boot

    Hey! I tried to hard reset my nexus 2013 - but it failed and now it doesn't have any operating system!

    When i start it, the google logo appears nothing else! But I can still get to the fast-boot menu - but not any further!

    I tried to flash it, but it doesn't work because it hasn't been unlocked or debugged!

    any "easy-fixes"?

    Hello,

    You will need to attempt to unlock the bootloader in order to flash the device.

    How did you go about doing a hard reset on you Nexus 7 ?

    I did the hard reset from the settings menu "factory reset" - how can i unlock the bootload, from the fastboot menu?

    Follow the instructions in the thread below. Its from the Nexus 7 (2012) but as with all Nexus devices the procedure is still the same, no changes.

    It says I need to debugge it? Will it still work?

    Now i tried and it just shows "unlock bootloader" on my nexus, when i choose "yes" - Command Prompt says "infoerasing userdata....." but nothing else happens?

    Not that it may change things but what OS are you using on your computer to perform the unlock? I know there has been issues on and off with Windows 8.

    Try different USB ports, cables...

    Try the USB ports off the back of your computer/laptop. Those are usually right off the motherboard and strongest connection. The other " remote " USB ports on the front or sides of your desktop/laptop are wired and not always as responsive.
