Can't connect to pc after rooting
« on: November 18, 2013, 11:04:25 PM »
Probably a simple answer but after I rooted my Nexus 7 I can't get it to connect to my Win7 computer.
I tried a few different computers and also the USB in front and back.

First off try a different USB cable, just to make sure that the problem is not created by the cable and do not use the indication that the tablet is changing as a sign that the cable is not at fault.

Next power off the tablet and connect it to your computer by the USB cable, then power on the tablet, which forces the computer to recognize the tablet as a new device. If you are still not successful, open device manager on your computer and and check for any device with a red X, if so right click on the device and remove it. Then unplug the USB cable and reconnect. If you remain unsuccessful, have your tablet connected to the computer and swipe down from the top left of the tablet screen and see if you have an option for USB connection type and change it to PTP.
Keep us posted on your progress.

I had tried all of that before but decided to give it another shot. Using a new cable did work. I had just about given up.
Thanks!

There is no rhyme or reason for a cable suddenly failing on a particular device and working on others, but glad you sorted it out.

I have similar problem.
After trying out both Mark's & Wugfresh toolkit. My PC only recognize the N7 in PTP mode which is useless for me.
If the PC recognizes the MTP mode then I can copy my ebooks and other files directly to the N7
Anyone knows how to fix this ?

I would try to reinstall the drivers using Skippen and try again.

Sometimes booting into recovery while plugged in to the PC and USB debugging enabled forces additional drivers to install. Worth a shot.
