Can't create backup file, says 'rebooting your device' for around 3 seconds then passes on too 'waiting for your device to boot back up' when it never actually reboots the device. It's like it doesn't even do anything, my device just sits in the state I left it in and doesn't reboot.

Not sure what the issue here is, but I'm starting to think it's driver related?

EDIT; Got it to work. I found the nexus 7 entry in the windows device manager and hit update selected drivers. I chose to update them locally from my computer and used the file path

Code:
C:\Wugs_NexusRootToolkit.v1.5.2\data\drivers
Worked fine after that.

Thank you guys, I'm now successfully rooted.

Drivers are for your computer. The don't change anything on your tablet.

I understood that but I figured something driver related was keeping my computer from communicating with the tablet. I couldn't get the automated process within the toolkit to work, and I couldn't be bothered working through the steps so I located the correct drivers and installed them with the windows device manager. I'm sorry if my original post was confusing

Thanks! This worked flawless for me. Best way to unlock/root I have ever used.

One side note. Is there a way to make Google Wallet work while the N7 is rooted? Hopefully there is a workaround? (or maybe put a warning that Wallet won't work if you root? NBD)

Edit: NVM. The warning is a fake. Wallet still works. Thanks again!

Installed Wug's toolkit and following the steps to make sure I have the drivers installed properly. Launch Device Mgr and uninstall the driver. Launch USBDevice and uninstall the one driver that says Nexus 7. (I've left other Google drivers and Samsung drivers since I assume they are related to my phone.) On to the next step and it says Option 1 is best for my setup (PDA drivers). I follow the visual tutorial and it says when prompted for June Fabrics Tech drivers, select Don't Install. I'm never prompted for that. After installing the USB driver it automatically launches the PDA tool. What am I missing? Do I need to uninstall *all* Google and Samsung drivers? What about when I connect my S3, any issues if I do that?

Its been a while since I used it, but all I did was install the PDAnet drivers. I didn't even bother with uninstalling anything else.

I uninstalled all of the drivers he referenced by vendor code (I think there were two vendor codes) and then did the option 2 install. Option one didn't work for me.

After that I was up and running.

Yep, 2 vendor codes. I ignored the vendor codes and looked for N7 specific drivers. This left a few others that were a part of the vendor codes listed. I'll try uninstalling all associated with the vendor codes, and maybe trying #2 as well.

Noobie question my friends. The root kit worked great. Now I only rooted my Nexus 7, should I have flashed with the custom recovery or not. I only want to use rooted apps especially backup and not install custom roms.

If you unlocked the bootloader and rooted, you can always install the custom recovery later if you decide you want to mess with ROMs.

This tool is perfect! So straight foreword, so simple. Tyvm for this. It took longer to DL the tool/ROM/gapps than it took to actually unlock/root/ROM this thing!

Loving my n7

The toolkit has a new update, 1.5.4.

Quote:
LATEST RELEASE DETAILS - VERSION 1.5.4 (10-11-2012)

  • Full official support for all the latest builds on the all the supported Nexus devices including the recently recently 4.1.2 builds.
  • Fixed the walk through nandroid backup to work properly when the user chose CWM in options instead of TWRP (default)
  • Fixed the small issue where one of the Nexus S builds was displaying the model type incorrectly.
  • Removed the “Always on top” attribute to the “Please be patient” splash screens for long operations like backing up or restoring.
  • Updated the Flash Stock + Unroot script to use the latest factory image packages available for each device (when using the auto download and extract feature)
  • In the “Flash Stock + Unroot” script, the “include google wallet” checkbox for GSM Galaxy Nexus Devices is removed because the yakju and takju builds are no longer the same android version. The Takju build (which includes google wallet) is the latest 4.1.2 so thats the build the autodownloader will use. If you want to use the Yakju build for whatever reason, you can always use the “other” option and point to a factory image package you downloaded.
  • Made sure that when using the “Other” option in “Flash Stock + Unroot” that the toolkit would work with factory image packages bundled as .tar files (rather than just tgz files). The toolkit will also recognize the file name regardless of this extension for automatically inputting the suggested hashvalue into the hashcheck interface.
  • Added the suggestion in step one of the driver guide to reboot your computer after uninstalling all of the drivers before proceeding to step 2.
  • Lots of small code revisions and improvements to ensure the toolkit runs properly.
  • Other minor bug fixes.

Hi Bigdog, I haven't had the Nexus 7 for a few months, but unless you used OTA Rootkeeper, you will probably have to reroot.

I realize that I have to re-root, which is what I'm trying to do, but isn't that just hitting root on NRT and letting it work. It doesn't get that far because adb doesn't recognize the nexus.

Try installing the PDAnet drivers again.

Uninstall Root Kit 1.5.3 and install 1.5.4 which has support for your rom. Then do the full driver installation again.

I've seen drivers change after an update.

Doesn't make sense to me, but it happens.

I'm fairly new to the Nexus 7 section of the forum and I have a couple questions.

Can I root my Nexus 7 via the NRK program above?
Is there a guide for rooting my device with Android 4.1.2?

Thanks, and reply is appreciated.

Yes, that's what I used to root. You just get the drivers installed and click the button that says root. If you check out the xda thread there's plenty of instructions there

Nrk has a very good step by step enclosed and worked for me very well. Now I need something similar for my Droid razr maxx. :-)

Ok so I followed word by word, the steps for installing just the drivers for my n7 via NRK (Full Driver Configuration Guide).

I clicked on "Full Driver Test" and the device failed at first to be recognized, then I clicked on it to try again and succeeded. Now the issue here is at the very end, NRK is waiting for me to finish booting up my n7, but its been over 5 minutes already. I'm not sure how long it should take, but compared to the rest of the process, its taking relatively long to reboot my n7.

I'm essentially stuck at rebooting, and my n7 displays a laying android with blue circuitry eminating from it. What exactly should I do now?

*note: I only tried to install the drivers, no rooting. Just the driver test is really taking along time to make my device boot up. Any response is appreciated.

Thanks for your quick replies!

My only complaint with Nexus Root Toolkit is the buttons need to be wider for those of us with high-resolution laptop screens (i.e. custom dpi set to medium - 125% under display)

The problem is most noticeable on the driver installation screens.

Default Success on 32 GB N7!

Just got through unlocking and rooting my new 32 GB N7 using the Wugfresh toolkit. It is a charm. I made a couple mistakes and went ahead and installed PDA Net on tab and PC but no problem. I just uninstalled on both Tab and on PC and picked up the instructions where it left off. The drivers were still in place and Everything went smoothly from there. Now waiting for my OTG adapter and case and will be ready whenever a super exciting rom comes along.

I recommend this toolkit at every opportunity I get.

It's highly recommended and he gives excellent support on his XDA thread (Not that most people need it, the tool is that intuitive).

Flash the recovery so you can do a full backup with TWRP. It will also give you the ability to wipe your dalvik and cache if things get buggy.

I'm right there with you on ROMs. I love the stock romantic, now that I've removed a few system apps and installed a custom kernel.

You'll want to install the custom recovery so you can do nandroid backups.

I was on the stock ROM for almost a month, but I recently flashed paranoid android and I think I'll be sticking with it.

I posted a thread in this forum with a link to a YouTube video. "... Rooted, and now what"

Very easy to do.

This issue is resolved. All screens I checked seem to be completely readable.

Have you got the drivers installed properly? There are instructions available in the toolkit :-)

so.. i just got a nexus 7 16gb from craigslist.org

is 1.5.5 still the latest? I see that this is version 1.6.2
do i need to confirm which nexus7 i have? there is seems to be 4 hardware versions running around.

i dont know if it has been rooted or if the boatloader has been unlocked...
before i use this tool kit...How can i check these things?


first thing to do .. is to turn on debugging..in Settings.. developer Settings.
but on my Nexus7, running 4.2.1 and ADW Launcher.
there is no "developer settings"??
is it because of ADW Launcher? how do i make it go back to stock nexus homescreen??

You need to go to Settings -> About Tablet -> Build Number. Tap Build number 7-8 times and you'll get a toast to tell you you are a developer. Then Developer settings will appear.

You'll know the bootloader is unlocked because there will be a little unlocked padlock icon at the bottom of the Google Screen when you turn it on. Rootchecker will check for root.

The latest toolkit is 1.6.2 and you can get it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1766475

When it boots, it will check to see if it's the latest version and download and install if not.

Re the version, check your build number, make sure that matches the build number in the toolkit and Bob's your Uncle.

ok.. i am now getting to this project..
have read over the ROMs.. and i guess i am going with the:
Dirty AOKP
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2087555
it seams pretty good.. and is stable

using the ROOTKIT... on nexus7
i enable the USB debugging and plugged it in to my PC..
PC tries to install drivers.. i dont have these files..so it cant install.
use the ROOTKIT to get the drivers..
but it ask me to delete a bunch of installed drivers..part of Step1:
- Use USBDeview to uninstall any;
- Android ADB Interface device's,
- Samsung USB devices,
- Google USB drivers
- ... or ANYTHING else you see that resembles your Nexus.

- In particular look for devices with Vendor ID
- "18d1" or... "04e8"

i have a Samsung Galaxy S3.. and I still want to be able to plug in my phone to my PC and do things. how will this affect that?

When you plug in your s3 the drivers will be reinstalled. If not, you can reinstall them from samsung after you get your nexus working with the toolkit

The absolutely can exist at the same time. But in the event you remove one or the other accidentally, it gets reinstalled when you plug in the device

I've also got a SGS3 so I only uninstalled the 18d1 ones that also had a N7 description, and unlocked/rooted successfully so you should be fine leaving the Samsung ones.

Not sure this is the right place to post, I'm a newbie, but here it goes anyway.

I have a nexus 7 that I rooted with the Nexus toolkit and I made the fatal mistake of updating android to 4.2.2 and last night I noticed that I couldnt tx files through my USB drive anymore. So I went on the forum to do a bit of resaerch and installed root checker pro and it says that root access is not properly configured.

Here is the report


Root Access is not properly configured or was not granted.
Super User Applications Status:
Superuser application - is NOT installed!
SuperSU application - version 1.04 - is installed!
System File Properties for Root Access:
Standard Location
Check Command: ls -l /system/bin/su:
Result: /system/bin/su: No such file or directory
Analysis: File /system/bin/su does not exist.
Standard Location
Check Command: ls -l /system/xbin/su:
Result: -rwxr-xr-x root shell 96144 2013-02-05 14:58 su
Analysis: Setuid attribute NOT present BUT root user ownership is present. Root access is NOT correctly configured for this file!
Alternative Location
Check Command: ls -l /sbin/su:
Result: /sbin/su: Permission denied
Analysis: File system permissions restricted and denied access.
Alternative Location
Check Command: ls -l /system/xbin/sudo:
Result: /system/xbin/sudo: No such file or directory
Analysis: File /system/xbin/sudo does not exist.
Root User ID and Group ID Status:
SU binary not found or not operating properly
System Environment PATH: /sbin /vendor/bin /system/sbin /system/bin /system/xbin
ADB Shell Default User:
ADB shell setting for standard access, stored in default.prop, is configured as: shell (non root) user - ro.secure=1

I can see stickmount in SuperSU and when I try to moiunt manually it says busy. When I connect the drive it flashes and stickmount searches for the drive but comes back with an error message that card is not mounted or empty.

I went back to the toolkit and it won't let me root becase I get stuck in "ADB is listed but offline".
I tried all the steps recommended changed port, cable, verify that port 50.. is listening, rebooted device and computer, ticked and unticked usb debugging etc but no success.
I'm stuck and don't know what to do next. I'm new to android, have had the tablet only for 3 months. I thought I was on top of it, but not.

I shouldn't have updated, I did it with trepidation, I have to travel soon and I need the tablet to be able to read the external storage.

Can anyone help please or redirect me to the right place?
