    ok guys I had this issue after trying to update to 4.3. I did every other suggestion from turning it off to wiping the data. But this is how i fixed mine,
    1) download nexus 7 V5.0 or newer toolkit (you need windows for this doesnt work on mac)
    2) after installing nexus 7 toolkit and running it press Y to check for update
    3) then pick the version of your nexus 7 (e.g. wifi or gms/hspa etc), I picked number 14 (because I have the 32gb wifi version and I pick android 4.2.1)
    4)After going to the next section, Press 1 (then enter)
    5) after the drivers are installed connect your nexus 7 to computer via usb cable then bring the tablet into fastboot mode (hold vol up, vol down and power buttons)
    6) then press 3 in nexus 7 toolkit to unlock the bootloader
    7) after entering the next section press 1 then enter to unlock the bootloader (a message will pop up on your device asking your permission to unlock the device, go ahead and accept it), then your device will reboot
    8) after your device is unlocked, enter bootloader (follow step 5)
    9) then press 9 and enter to download google stock rom
    10) then press 1 and enter to download google stock image of your choice (I picked number 14)
    11) after the download is completed go the same menu as step 9, then press 2 and enter to Flash google factory image
    12) then it will ask your permission to start the procedure, then press y
    13) The process will continue for a while and after it is done it will restart your tablet and it will be ready to use again

    Just purchased a new Nexus 7 (2nd Gen). GPS problems from the word go. Had to reboot to get a lock? now the unit will not reboot as it stuck on the X screen.

    it sounds like i'm not the only one with these problems. Anybody advise on best course of action apart from a very large hammer?

    Many thanks

    Thank you for the ideas. However, I tried the reboot (twice) and it went back to the X screen.
    I plugged the tablet into my computer and it does not recognize it.
    Any other ideas??? Besides sending it back to Asus.

    That's very helpful. But it doesn't inspire anyone to buy this tablet. I have just bought this tablet today, and it stuck on the X ...so what is the use of tablet...which does this? It's no good having to mess about pressing a series of buttons. It should either work properly or be withdrawn by the company for them to get it solved. This must kill the rave reviews this tablet is receiving. It's great resolution sure, but its reliability is seriously undermined by so many people having the same problem. It should be withdrawn from the market until they can assure people that it has both reliability and durability. It's pointless having to press buttons and mess with it...like this. Either it works or it doesn't. If it doesn't, the company should withdraw this tablet and go back to the drawing board.
