[Official] Google Nexus 7 Owners Club - Page 10

post #91 of 2571
Thread Starter 
First page updated! Just for info I will add anybody who posts in this thread relating to thier nexus 7 or that they have bought a nexus 7 etc. Makes it easier than specifically asking each person if they wanna join. If after ive added anybody and they didnt want to join, please post in here or PM me asking to be removed cheers!

As most of you already know, my nexus 7 8GB device malfunctioned 2 days ago, the screens gone and needs to be replaced, I created a thread about it. Kinda a shame really, considering its only lasted 3 days. I never dropped it once, it literally just went half way through a day of general use. I have not had a response from google yet via email after I called them on 20/07 requesting a replacement. I will post in here if I hear any updates frown.gif

Dang, that's a shame frown.gif I wonder how common that problem is.

Noob question: Would just unlocking the bootloader and rooting disable OTA updates or is that only an issue once you install a custom ROM?

There has been loads problems reported with the screen;

  • Screen brightness issue
  • Screen height raised issued on left hand side
  • screen backlighting

Seems obvious to me Google cut corners when they assigned ASUS to make the device.

@ $ilent: Damn, that does suck, bro. Stay on them. The way they kinda fumbled the launch, they should handle RMAs quicker/better.

Some screenies for the club as I've never subbed any picts but, our camera is on it's last legs and was crappy to begin with:
Current lame home screen:

If anyone just has to have working flash you can use this Dolphin HD APK shown in this thread at xda along with the flash player linked in that thread and it'll work. Works perfectly.

@ Faraz: I think once you root, that's it. I'm reading up before trying anything but I found this: Updating N7 Once Rooted. I'm going to wait a while until things are really settled with the N7 before trying anything. But I think one of these apps is all you'd need to keep the root after an OTA: OTA Keeper SuperSU Pro

xda Nexus 7 Section.

Edit: Everyone Her'e s terrific little "Tweak Guide" I stumbled upon while reading on xda. All credit for it goes to Terracode.

@ ivanlabrie I'd grab one. Won't be long before someone comes out with a "kit" for external storage or JB gets an update for it. As it is all you need is to root, an .89 cent USB-OTG cable and a 10 dollar Kingston Data Traveler 16GB thumb drive. I see massive tweaks in the N7's future.

Mine has one stuck pixel/subpixel. Very tiny and not very noticeable, so it doesn't bother me at all.

Don't you mean a rear facing camera? The Nexus 7 already has a front facing camera.
