I started to install the ubuntu touch image and once the ubuntu touch screen came up with the logo and one of the options was to restart, so I restarted it and now it is stuck on the Google screen. I have the Nexus 7. I can't try to install ubuntu or android on it now because it has to be on in order for me to use adb. Please help. Hope I didn't brick my Nexus 7
If you recently installed Ubuntu Touch to the Nexus 7 (using build 20130704.2), the device may be (temporarily) bricked.
.. endlessly cycling between the Google boot logo and a blank screen ..
Wait for the screen to go blank, and then ..
Press and hold Power + Volume Up + Volume Down buttons, for 5-7 seconds.
You should now be at the Bootloader screen ('green START' )
Use the Volume Down button twice, to show 'Recovery Mode' (in red)
Then press Power, to restart in 'Recovery Mode'.
This will first show the Google logo for 4-6 seconds ..
Then change to Recovery Mode (with a Ubuntu logo in white circle).
You should now be able to verify a USB connection.
You can now download a fresh install to device.
Make sure only the target device is connected. This will not verify the device attached, and will simply install software for a Nexus 7 (grouper).
If this does not succeed, restore the device to Android (factory) settings.
what I would do at this point is flash a recovery image using
Then download a rom: Factory Images "nakasi" for Nexus 7 (Wi-Fi).
Boot to recovery and mount as USB storage. Copy the factory image ROM to the SD card.
Then use recovery to install Zip from SD card.
