    Help guys. I have used the nexus toolkit and installed the drivers,unlocked the bootloader then unlocked the nexus 7 , all went fine. I then rooted it but just sat there saying waiting for nexus to reboot but it was like that for about 30 minutes. I closed down the tool kit but my nexus 7 is stuck with the android image with the door open and start at the top and I cant do anything with the nexus its stuck. When I try to conect it to the pc again it is not recognising it.
    Help is it dead ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey, sorry for the long wait for reply.

    Volume button up or down does nothing? You can't press the power button and make it start?
    Hold down the power button and down volume for like 30 seconds. See if it'll shutdown

    Nice one.. that worked. Think the problem lies when picking the correct version from the drop down menu in the root toolkit. I updated to Android 4.1.1 when I first got the Nexus so my model number is JRO03D but on the toolkit it only shows up as JRO03C. Should I go back to Android 4.1 ?
    If this makes sense.

    Its ok to choose C if you have JRO03D. It will still work fine.

    Were you following this guide?
