    Default Nexus 7 Mistery?

    Guys, I don't usually post on forums but now I just can't make myself sending it back without making sense of this first.

    So I got the Nexus 7 one month ago, barely used it and didn't install any fancy stuff on it. One week ago I saw an app that I wanted and before installing it I had to install BusyBox. In my foolishness I didn't read the description that the tablet has to be rooted before I install it.

    When the installation finished this exact problem suddenly happened:

    Why I'm determined it's a hardware problem:

    - The next morning I turned it on and everything was back to normal, however, after 15 seconds it slowly dimmed and got back to that exact screen
    - You can navigate the menus and hear the sounds
    - The morning after again, back to normal, I hurried and did a factory reset and deleted everything. This didn't help at all, the problem was still there and the screen never went back to normal even for a few seconds.
    - It keeps the same lines in the recovery menu and on boot.

    While everything points it's a hardware problem and the guy on YouTube said Asus replaced his display, how can this simply be a COINCIDENCE? For this to happen exactly when I installed something it wasn't supposed to be installed if the tablet wasn't rooted?

    How are you doing a factory reset? The reason I am asking is sometimes factory resets are not done correctly.

    It may very well be a hardware problem or it's affected you ROM

    "Go to Settings > Backup & reset
    Touch Factory data reset
    Touch Reset tablet"

    Followed this from Google website.
