It is hold voume down on my NX7.

How do you unlock the bootloader? I don't seem to have that option, or maybe I am just being thick.

When I am trying to connect the NX7 to my computer it says "device drives not installed properly". When I do into device manager on other devices I have got "Nexus" appearing but it has the yellow exclamation triangle.

Must resist the temptation to fling my NX7 against the wall in frustration and anger. Tell you what, whatever oyu think about Samsung they at least make this s*** easy. Rooting my S2 and S3 were walk in the park compared to this bloody Nexus 7.....

Try manually updating the drivers for the device with the yellow triangle - this was the only way I could get it to work.

I installed the 64-bit version of PDANet to get my Nexus 7 to connect correctly. I was then able to to unlock and root it with no problem.

Thanks for the great tool!

Unfortunately lost root when doing the 4.1.2 OTA (although some people on XDA seemed to keep root), would someone braver than me be kind enough to check that this works with Android 4.1.2?

I've never seen that before, best bet is to download and reflash the stock images from here - https://developers.g...id/nexus/images

I've just tried Paul's routine on my Nexus 7. Got the reboot loop :( Downloading the stock images now - hope that fixes it.

I did the unlock procedure first, then the de-rooting after. It then rebooted itself once, and then went around in the loop.

Edit:

Redoing the image from the stock image solved the problem.

Ignoring my dodgy spelling.. fixed it... somehow.

I re-locked the bootloader, still asking for password, re-unlocked it, and it sprang to life. Not sure if it was doing that, or trying putting it into recovery before re-unlocking, but, I now have a rooted Nexus 7... now I have to hand it back and act surprised on Christmas morning.

I used described method (Superboot) to root my Nexus 7 HSPA+. Everything was just fine. Unfortunately suddenly my device started to produce very distorted sound (at 40% of volume and above). It seems that I need to send it back to Asus. What should I do to reverse "Superboot"? Is it enough if I just reflash it with the stock image?

Thanks in advance!

Stock image flash will do just fine.

I too have got the bootloop problem.

Please can someone give me step by step instructions on how to flash the stock image I have downloaded?

Thanks.

Oh, this is odd. It doesn't seem to have a recovery image installed. Is that right?

How do I get one, so I can backup/restore and flash custom ROMs?
