How to get a rooted Nexus 7 back to the setup screen
« on: October 20, 2014, 08:44:34 PM »
I rooted my Nexus7, but when I set it up with my username, etc., I somehow did not choose the option to restore my data from Google backup.  Is there a way I can get the Nexus7 to reset to the initial screen (like a factory reset, but not actually factory)?  If I do that, will the pre-rooting Google backup be lost anyway (so that I can never get it back)?

You could remove the google account, click restore button, and add the account back in settings. As long as you don't tick the backup box, which replaces the old bu with a new one it should still be there.

There should have been a dialog for restore in the  setup process.

Sadly, I think I am not getting a restore checkbox because for some reason there is no backup stored by Google.

Are you using the same google account? I just got a cheap phone and in the setup process it asked whether to restore. Now I'm deleting apps.
