    Default Can't Get a Factory Reset in a Bootloader stuck Nexus 7 V2

    Hello, after many days of googling, I have not found anything that has helped and I'm stuck in a rut, hopefully I may get some help by you guys here

    First off, the problem starts off with my device, after unsuccessfully rooting my device, I thought I would try to unroot the device to remove the files from the failed root. At this point, my device turns on and functions like a stock Nexus 7. It's currently unlocked but not rooted. After trying to unroot the device, when it tries to reboot, it is stuck at the Google logo, with the padlock at the bottom (additionally, after turning it of, I no longer need to press the volume key with the power button to turn it on to bootloader, just turning it on normally turns on bootloader mode).

    I want to do a factory reset but here are the factors that restrict me from doing so:

    - I want to do a factory reset through recovery mode, but when I turn on bootloader, and press recovery mode, it just brings me back to bootloader. (Here is a video demonstrating this)

    - I thought of connecting my device and flashing a factory image with CWM and TWRP but when I connect my device into my computer, it does not get detected. Can't Get a Factory Reset in a Bootloader stuck Nexus 7 V2-pic_0323.jpg (This is a picture showing my nexus plugged in and my computer not reading it)

    Additional information that might be helpful:
    Bootloader information:

    VARIANT - flo 32G
    HW VERSION - rev_e
    SERIAL NUMBER - 05ef80d5
    SIGNING - yes
    SECURE BOOT - enabled
    LOCK STATE - unlocked

    Thank you for reading and reviewing my problem and hope to hear a response soon, thanks a plenty!
