So I've been attempting to factory restore my good ol' Nexus 7 (2013) LTE (deb) all day, and I can't get past this one error that has me stuck. I'm using the stock image from Google, and where I'm stuck at is when running the flash-all.sh from the command line, everything looks great up until "Writing 'userdata'":
... Erasing 'userdata' OKAY [ 19.272s] mke2fs 1.45.4 (23-Sep-2019) Creating filesystem with 6997491 4k blocks and 1749664 inodes Filesystem UUID: ee2e310b-02d9-4271-b8ff-75d231a0a955 Superblock backups stored on blocks: 32768, 98304, 163840, 229376, 294912, 819200, 884736, 1605632, 2654208, 4096000 Allocating group tables: done Writing inode tables: done Creating journal (32768 blocks): done Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: done Sending 'userdata' (180 KB) OKAY [ 0.011s] Writing 'userdata' FAILED (remote: 'Bogus size sparse and chunk header') fastboot: error: Command failed
I found a similar question posted related to a Nexus 5 having the same issue (Flashing Nexus 5 factory image fails on writing userdata), and the same general workaround seems to work up to getting to the android boot screen, except the device is stuck in a bootloop. One comment mentioned needing to resize the partition prior to the first boot. So far, I haven't been able to find how exactly to do that. Anybody got an idea?
Appreciate any help!
