I realise this is asked countless times but I genuinely believe my question is unique, please bare with me as I explain.
My Nexus7 (2013) is not working in fastboot mode, I connect my Nexus 7 and run the following:
$ adb devices List of devices attached 07c15663 device
The Nexus 7 appears (once authorising adb), so I then reboot to fastboot (or bootloader):
$ adb reboot bootloader
The Nexus 7 reboots into fastboot correctly and I see the usual screen:
Nexus 7 in fastboot mode (click image for larger variant)
However, when I issue any fastboot commands it cannot see the device:
$ sudo ./fastboot devices [empty response]
...and lsusb doesn't see the USB Connection:
$ lsusb Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 001 Device 006: ID 5986:0266 Acer, Inc Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0a5c:21e6 Broadcom Corp.

to add to this weirdness, once it's booted up properly the Nexus 7 appears as a Nexus 4 in lsusb:
$ lsusb [...] Bus 001 Device 060: ID 18d1:4ee2 Google Inc. Nexus 4 (debug) [...]
I'm so confused, what have I done to my poor Nexus 7?? Please Help!
- The device seems to freeze after extended periods in fastboot at which point the only solution is to push and hold the power button for 10secs (hard power off).
- I can use fastboot with my Nexus 4 without any problems
