Trouble rooting 7.2
« on: August 11, 2013, 01:53:17 PM »
New nexus 7.2, with the 2 ota updates. Using Wugfresh toolkit 1.6.8 to root.

Uninstalled drivers and installed new ones.  I'm now at step 3 and the toolkit says "adb not found". Tried different usb port, developer debug changes are done but adb remains unfound.

What to do?

Aren't there alternate methods of installing drivers with Wugfresh's toolkit?  Try installing the drivers again, or try loading drivers from Skipsoft's (Mark Skippen's) Google Nexus 7 Toolkit.

Mark Skippen's toolkit is due by the 13th. Give it 2 days and your issues should be easily resolved.

I tried the automatic driver Installation several times before writing to ask for help. No luck. The alternate method said to find the nexus device in device manager and install the drivers from Wugfresh directory. Could find no mention of nexus in dm so that didn't work either.

I will wait for skipsoft's toolkit as you and Prime suggest.

Thank you both.

Wanted to add that I now remember I had the same driver problem when I tried to root my nexus 7 2012 with Wugfresh and finally got it rooted with the other toolkit.
