Turn your tablet off, then press and hold both volume buttons down, then press and hold the power button until it boots. You'll see a big arrow thing at the top with Start, a couple arrows point up and down, and an android on its back with its chest open. Check the text below it, and you'll see at the bottom: "LOCK STATE - XXXXXX" Mine's still locked, so it says "LOCK STATE - LOCKED"
For comparison, my Galaxy Nexus says "LOCK STATE - UNLOCKED" as I unlocked it some months back.

Thanks, it says it is unlocked, which I assume will void my warrenty if I send it back that way? What is fast boot?

You have to go back to factory state before sending it in. Use the video below with the tool kit to see if you can simply unroot (if you haven't already) then re-lock.

Here is the absolute best rooting/unlocking video out to date:
You have not voided your warranty. Just get it back to stock & locked and it's all good. These are Nexus devices...put simply, they are meant to be rooted/unlocked/hacked. As long as you did not cause the physical damage you are fine.

Mine works fine. No issues. The charger itself feels hella cheap and flimsy but mine's working. Get on the phone. Tell Google the charger is faulty and you'd like a replacement. Everything that came in that box is under warranty. thumb.gif

I think you missed my point. MicroSD was left out of the Nexus 7 because "other manufactures offer a little integrated memory while users have to rely on external storage". What they mean to convey is that they should have more built in storage, but they didn't offer a solution to the problem by releasing an 8Gb version because it has the same amount as roughly every other tablet on the market..

So first they complain that there's not enough storage, then they do the same exact thing they are against. The pot calling the kettle black?

Then someone creates a blog (probably a shill) making it seem as if everyone is crazy by thinking the lack of a microSD slot is a conspiracy to get users to use Google's online storage, no, it's part of the plan to force users to buy more expensive tablets at a premium. Cheap SD storage threatens the whole "we want to totally control the user and make them demand more storage and then price gouge the hell out of it" mentality.

So, after they released their 8Gb version (halleluiah for one single volume), they released a 16Gb version and are charging a premium for the memory.

$250 for a 16g tablet with this kind of hardware and software? Plus the fact that its pure ICS so updates come straight to the platform?

I know $50 is a bit much to pay for the extra 8g, but you still should consider what you actually get for that $250.

You're right, they should offer both sizes at the same price.

However I think you should compare the 8GB N7 to other $200 Android tablets. There is absolutely no competition.

Yes I agree it's a good tablet even for $250, I just disagree with their reasoning. If they wanted to come across as genuine to their word and not just making it up on the fly, they would have had MORE memory to begin with that would have equaled the cost of the SD they are trying to replace.

I wanted to buy one of these to use as a GPS navigation system, and it appears like Google is about to release their offline map navigation soon and from what I hear, it is going to require a massive amount of storage to contain an entire U.S. map with 3d buildings, landmarks, and points of interest.

I believe they already have it and why would you want the entire U.S. map offline?

Hey I'd like to join the club, stats below

Nexus 7 16gb
USB-OTG

So far. unlocked & rooted. running motley kernel(excellent dev btw). Going to throw a custom rom on here in a day or two when I have some extra time.

The usb cable that came with the charging unit I threw that in the garage a few days ago, way too short and just feels low quality. To whomever posted about wanting to go back to stock quick and easy use that tool from the video the poster above displayed. Thanks
