Help! Did my son brick his nexus 7?
I don't know much about android, this is what my son told me happened.
He has a Nexus 7 2012 (wifi, Nakasi-Grouper) which he had on jellybean 4.3 multirom. He tried to flash 4.3 stock recovery in preparation to upgrade to kitkat using Nexus Root Toolkit while on 4.3 ROM other than the internal one. It either incorrectly flashed the image while in the bootloader or it tried to flash the bootloader for kitkat. It went to the Google screen and then turned black and then the screen just flashes repeatedly. The computer will see it in APX mode but canít get any drivers loaded so that it is accessible by usb. He had not generated the files for NVFlash to be able to restore it.
I have played around trying to load usb drivers that will work with it, I have not found anything on the web to help fix it. Depressing the power and both up and down volume buttons does nothing, I did figure out that it can be turned off with power and up volume depressed.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. If there is nothing my son and I can do to fix it is it worth sending out for repair?

[GUIDE] Nexus 7 - Factory Image Restore
That seems to have saved a number of people with devices that are similar to how yours sounds. Worth a shot!
