    I downloaded the factory image for the 2012 nexus 7 (HSPA) pulled out the recovery.img from the .tgz and zip files, flashed it in fast boot so I could get stock recovery back and get rid of TWRP for hopefully easier OTAs (yeah, right:mad::rolleyes:)

    But all I got now is just andy on his back with the red exclamation mark. And nothing else!

    It is the correct file. I have tried two different factory image zips both from google.

    So yeah, recovery is now broken. I will spare you my displeasure for this device now and just download TWRP again.

    Anyone know where the stock recovery can be found because evidently this one was missing a few things :rolleyes:

    Nexus Root Toolkit v1.7.9 | WugFresh

    Download it, install it, select the exact device and current build. NRT will download the required files for your device.

    Click Advanced Utilities button, then Stock Recovery button.

    Be happy.

    It's is simply the best toolkit to have for Nexus devices.

    That is the stock recovery, you need to press volume up + power when on that screen to bring up the menu.

    You have to use the button command I posted above to access the menu. It can be very finicky, so you may have to try multiple times.

    Really!? Been so long since I have used stock recovery, I thought when you boot into recovery it automatically gave you the menu. Will try again later then as I already flashed the updated twrp.

    Did not work.

    Im done.

    What flavor and build do you need, Im pretty sure I can set it in NRT, have it download the stock recovery and pass it along.

    Looking over the stock recovery folder of NRT it will be in the .img format.

    Yeah, I already installed the 4.4.1 update on 3 devices today and had to do that each time.

    I'm in the same position... getting into recover just isn't happening. Can't access with USB to PC either.

    I'm using OTG cable, Stick Mount and Memory stick. Wug's is out of the question, (have the ADB set up, but there's just no interface in MTP mode, (using Camera mode is a laugh to transfer).
    Wanted to make a Nandroid, than jump to KitKat From an older Grouper (a year old almost).
    Little Android guy on his back, so choose the buttons, up into recovery, ...just dumps to the black scree, big white word GOOGLE, with an unlocked lock.

    So, I thought I might do what you were doing. All I can do is drag and drop a "recovery", from an old Nandroid backup, so I have the recovery-12MB and the boot-8MB files, now on the memory stick.

    Otherwise I can use ES File explore to move the back up's recovery file,and than where would this go?

    Presuming that the one in the Grouper Rom on the tablet now is corrupt, (it's the same ROM), would this work?

    Or is Nandroid Manager a better idea? I could install that to do this, but I don't know what files to grab, where they are, or where they need to go.

    Thanks guy's.
