Android 5.0 update bricks Nexus 7

For some Nexus 7 owners both the first and second-gen models,
 the thrill of updating their tablet to Android 5.0 quickly turned
 into horror when the update bricked their pride and joy.

And to make matters worse, it seems that Asus and Google
are not responding to the many complaints that have piled up
 on Twitter. If anger were electricity, you would be able to
power a large metropolitan city for days with the bile posted
on hashtag #Nexus7 bricked.

While no theory for the "bricking" has come from official sources,
 the affected tablets do not boot up past the image of the Google logo.
