    Default Nex7 2013 Won't Enter Recovery Mode

    When my Nexus 7 2013 got stuck on the Google screen yesterday I searched online and found the recovery instructions. with the tablet off I press and hold the power and volume-down buttons to bring up the "START" page. Then I toggle to the RECOVERY MODE page by pushing the volume-down button a couple of times.

    At this point, pushing the power button should make it enter recovery mode, but if I push the power button it just goes back to the neverending Google screen. I already have an RA for return but thought I'd check here first, just in cast there's another way to get into Recovery Mode. Any ideas other than shipping the damned thing off?

    Thanks,

    You can try (if you have everything set up) and ADB reboot recovery command.

    To a noob like me, that sounds like "do the nuclear fission with the plasma accelerator"... is there a step-by-step somewhere online, or at least something to tell me what ADB is? Sorry.

    Long: http://developer.android.com/tools/help/adb.html
    Short: ADB is a command line tool that allows you to perform some low-level commands on your Android device.

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/sho....php?p=3785091 has a download that provides what you need without having to install the Android SDK (Software Development Kit).
