that didn't work but I think it was a USB issue...the error was related to usb communications so I downloaded sdk to my wife's PC and set up there...ran the same commands and all good. Thanks though!try reflashing the bootloader.
I think it's a little finicky with which USB port you plug it into. I had to switch to a different port to get mine to go back to stock. Not sure why.that didn't work but I think it was a USB issue...the error was related to usb communications so I downloaded sdk to my wife's PC and set up there...ran the same commands and all good.

good job leaving toolkits behind. u dont need them.Nevermind i figured it out thanks to google! just in case anyone else has the cant load recovery problem. you have to open the command prompt from inside the platform tools folder (shift button and right click the mouse) otherwise fastboot wont know the command path to get the file. Got her up and running unlocked,rooted, and twrp. IT was really pretty easy. I dont know why I let adb scare me for so long! now i gotta go delete these tool kits.
Same here. When I want to get into recovery from bootloader it just sticks at the Google logo. At first I thought my CWM might be broken but via an app or "adb reboot recovery" recovery just starts fine.I'm not sure if it was mentioned in this thread (too lazy to read more than 4 pages) but most people will be unable to access recovery on the 7 via the Vol - + PWR buttons using either TWRP or CWM. This appears to be specific to the 7. Yes, there are multiple apps you can download that will allow you to boot into recovery with no issue. The problem is when you bork your OS and you need to get into recovery using the buttons.
The work around is to plug your 7 into your PC. When you do this, you should be able to get into recovery by using the buttons. I tested this multiple times with both TWRP and CWM and it worked every time. Not sure if you want to add this to the FAQ's for the 7.
I've read this in several places. But if you go into terminalHowever when the tablet is plugged into the PC while in bootloader, there is no problem with starting recovery.
This also works for me. But when your system doesn't boot, you need to get into recovery from bootloader. And therefore it needs to be plugged into a PC or else you get stuck at the Google logo.I've read this in several places. But if you go into terminal
It works for me. Or if your ROM has power controls you can just do that as well
