[TOOL] Android Commander 0.7.9.10 - xda-developers <-- perhaps try that. I kinda doubt that will work if adb won't work by itself, but it is worth a shot. Essentially it is a GUI for adb.
Guys I really appreciate all the help you've given me the last few hours while I tried to figure this out.
After screwing around with adb commands for a while (adb devices returned my device id and in recovery)... I gave up trying to salvage this. I just need my phone back.
Bit the bullet and used WUG's to return to stock. A little sad at some of the things I lost, but I'll chalk it up to a lesson learned the hard way.
The restore went fine (I even tried adb again after WUGs re-did my drivers. no go), now re-rooted and proceeding to set it all back up. Again.
Still love this forum, and everyone who chimed in here. Thanks a bunch.
At this rate it may be quicker to just flash back to factory. Also I recommend to nexus users to always keep a backup on your computer. I personally after backing up with tibu I move that, my music, my nandroid backup files to my computer just in case I ever have to exchange my nexus I can just unlock move all the files to my nexus and restore my nandroid backup (saves me from having to reset up my phone every time).
For my own edification, I'm curious...
The toolkit just scripts things that can be done manually, correct? So... is the fact that the toolkit worked because flashing stock is different, or because I was screwing up the manual process?
