    Hi all, thank you for welcoming me.

    Ok I have a Nexus 7 I rooted it about 4mths ago, works great, up untill a few weeks ago.
    I dont think I did anything unusal, Just normal updates of apps.
    Anyway So I try to go onto google play and it keeps coming up with 'Couldn't establish connection'. I havent change any of my wifi setting or google account settings.
    So I can go onto the net through Chrome no worries, but just not anything to do with google play, which is all my apps.
    I then did Factory reset and still nothing. And Also my Nexus will charge but not recognize USB on my PC.
    Also when it was rooted, I try to clear the cache in recovery mode but it came up with, "No command"
    Now I have looked online for solutiosn but nothing solid. Can anyone give me a straight simple answer, is it now just a brick.

    Thank you

    Hello and welcome aboard!

    You have done most of the things that I have suggested - I am quite surprised that a FDR did not solve the issue as that should have restored all settings to default...you might check out our sister site to see if they have any additional advice to offer - Nexus 7 / Nexus 10 Forum ...

    narsink,

    I have literally taken my Nexus 7 to places where people have told me that I simply couldn't repair it. I have put Linux on it, Chrome OS on it, re-sized partitions, etc., and had it literally on it's last leg. Each time I was able to fix it with this method. This method does require Linux, and that the device have an unlocked boot loader. I assume it does since that's the most common method to root it as well. Also, make sure you backup data first, if successful this will nuke ALL of your data.

    Download and install ADB/Fastboot
    Make sure that you are running Linux (Ubuntu is recommended).
    Go to this page and follow the instructions: https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images#instructions

    Doing this process with restore your Nexus 7 back to the factory image using their low level image tool. This tool is so deep that it will literally wipe all partitions including boot, system. cache, and recovery, and re-create, and populate then with factory data. Its pretty straight forward; You simply put your device in fastboot mode, and execute the flash-all.sh file that comes bundled with the image.

    I'm mobile now so it' a bit much to type more. Let me know if you need help with Linux or this and Ill get on my computer later and help you.
