#Nexus7bricked Twitter full of these hashtags recently.
« on: August 30, 2015, 01:18:05 AM »
I've got a 1st gen Nexus7 .

It's stuck at the coloured circles phase of bootup.
It's been like that all through the night.

I suspect it's taken an auto upgrade of some sort, but I can't tell what.

Anyway, there is something coming out which bricks these devices - so beware.

My device is out of warranty period, so I don't know how I'm going to get it fixed.

Best of luck.

Download WugFresh's Nexus Root Toolkit (NRT) to your computer and connect your Nexus device by the usb cable to your computer. Open NRT, select your device and download the suggested files. On the main NRT screen select Current Status/ Soft-bricked/Bootloop, then select Flash Stock + Unroot (don't worry if you are not rooted), accept the next screen and under the Which factory image screen select Settings/ No Wipe Mode to retain your programs and data. Click Ok and follow the prompts, your OS will be restored to the factory image with all of your apps and data intact. Make sure that you select the correct device on NRT or you will end up losing all of your data.

My First Gen Nexus 7 has just done similar, it seemed to do some sort of Recent update, not sure if it was apps or operating system. The got message it was optimising the Apps. It seemed to be stuck in a loop ie never got to the end of optimising the Apps.
Tried rebooting it via menu and out of desperation used recovery mode. When I plug it in to PC with USB it doesn't seem to recognise it , it did before!.  So can't currently flash any files to it, with suggested tool kit i'm still trying.
