    Hello folks,
    I am trying to get a friends Nexus 7 up and running. I recently rooted it and installed the custom recovery using my Mac with this guide while the tablet was on 4.3. All was well, but then my friend was given the option to install the 4.4 Kitkat update. After the update, the tablet has been unable to boot - it simply hangs at the startup animation. I am able to enter the recovery boot loader, and enter options to restore from a .zip, however I have no way of accessing the tablet's memory from my computer to put the original operating system back on it- although I think it could be done from Terminal, I am not well versed in command prompts.

    I would greatly appreciate assistance in resolving this difficulty. Also, Hello! This seems like a great place to learn about my fairly new / used Samsung Galaxy S3.

    I ran into the same issue ... some searching showed me that the Nexus Root Toolkit can fix this in a matter of minutes ...
