Nexus 10 stuck in Fastboot mode

    My Nexus 10 is stuck in fastboot mode, and no matter which option I try it always comes back to fastboot mode. Also I have tried to initiate custom recovery, but again to no avail.
    I had been using WugFresh Nexus Rootkit 1.79, and was about to upgrade from Android 4.3 to 4.4, but first I ran Flash Stock and unroot so I would be able to accept OTA updates. Unfortunately, the program halted when it completed the requested action, and I am left in this predicament.
    USB debugging was active, and I had CWM recovery and root. The tablet is unlocked.
    Is anyone able to provide assistance in recovering from this dilemma

    What happens if you select "reboot tablet" with the volume buttons in Fastboot/Bootloader?

    Thanks for your response dibblebill.
    When I go to 'Restart Bootloader', (or 'Recovery Mode' or 'Start') the tablet immediately reboots back to 'Start'. The 'Power Off' button does actually stop the tablet.

    Hrm. And you can't fastboot flash a recovery at all, eh? I'll do some homework and see if I can find anything. Its an issue I haven't heard of, I'll confess. Have you asked over at XDA as well?

    No in fact I have tried to see if I could get to Stock Recovery from fastboot, but that gives no response beyond going to the next tab. I wanted to read the various relevant forums before posing my question on XDA - still going.

    I've been unable to turn up anything myself. I must confess, I'll be quite useless to you. My apologies.

    Hi dibblebill. I have now got my Nexus 10 up and working since demkantor on XDA directed me to this link - [Guide] How To Setup And Use Fastboot - xda-developers. The link is full of extremely useful information, and has a wide range of options from within fastboot.
    It is well worth reading!

    PROBLEM RESOLVED!
