Do you have any nandroids that may be taking up space?

It could also be the Glazed Jelly Bean you tried.

Try doing one of these:

from recovery
cd /data/media
chown -R media_rw.media_rw *
(note that chown -R wont work if not in recovery)

brute force method:
adb shell
cd data/media (sdcard is a symlink to data/media)
chmod -R 777 *

Go to recovery
From there, go to Mounts & Storage
Mount SDCard
Type the following (obviously hitting enter after each line):

adb shell
cd /data/media
chown -R media_rw.media_rw *

I don't have an N7 so I'm not sure where you type these, but that seems to cure storage issues for others. If I remember right, in TWRP there is an option to open a command window.

Have you tried using the Nexus toolkit to go back to stock?
