YOu have to 'mount /system' in recovery before you can see what's on it!

P


I did ? Back on stock everything again now, do I dare try this again .... :) lol

UPDATE: I dared and it worked fine this time. Only thing I can think that is different is that I hadn't done the OTA to 4.1.1 this time (did get the update popup after a few mins. but clicked on update later). So SU in place and just installing custom recovery.

Nice one Paul :)

Just a heads up that if you've updated to 4.1.1 (or 4.1) this doesn't work.

OK, I'll post a version with the updated kernel.

Odd though, it should still work.

I have just received my Nexus 7 and applied google's update.. now it s 4.1.1
how do i get into Bootloader then?
I have turned off, then hold down "volume up" and power on, and it just started the tablet normally. What did I do wrong?

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
