I know this isn't specific to the N7 but thought I may aswell ask here.
How can I change the default location where camera photos are stored?
I remember I done it on my S2 but can't remember how

Do you have any tips?

It's really simple.
You can download this files: USB DRIVERS r_06 for Windows 7 & 8

Menu entry buttons not working?
I've got a very peculiar error since my 4.2.1 upgrade (which persisted when upgrading to 4.2.1).

After some time my "clicks" on certain type of menu containers don't do anything until I press the task switcher and go back to the window.
Anyone else had the same issues or can point me in the same direction? Tried searching for the problem on the forum but not sure what I should be searching for

A video of the problem is attached below:
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3ms...it?usp=sharing

Would like to try not resorting to factory reset but I have not rooted and not getting anything at all from the logcat. Do I need to be on a rooted kernel to have a logcat that gives me any good information?).

Something which is REALLY strange is that it only seems to affect links which open a new window, not when a function is called.

Posting here since I can't post in the ParanoidAndroid thread yet.

I'm running the latest PA3 nightly with the latest M-kernel mr1 and the 4.18 bootloader, but the Google Services battery drain issue is getting overwhelming. I'm thinking of reverting back to 4.1.2-based PA, but can I flash it since I have the latest bootloader? Also, I'm not sure if the M-kernel mr1 is compatible with 4.1 anymore, but at least the alpha ones were. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey everyone!

I'm new here so hii currently my N7 is being shipped to me and im so excited, i always enjoyed modding/hacking my devices and i would like to do the same with my N7 i had some experience with : Ipod/iphone psp nds psvita.
So far ive only done a little bit of researching (about an hour) and i understand i need to use a toolkit then apply a kernel and ROM of my choosing to get mods i like right? or am i close? but i have a few questions..

Should i start off by learning to use a toolkit or should i start somewhere earlier to learn more?
whats the difference from the "original development" and "android development" forum? (im thinking i start with Android right? pretty dumb question)
what version of jellybean should i have to do these things, (still don't have mine so want to make sure i don't upgrade)
I don't really know much about the features in ALL THESE Roms but I'm thinking of going with the SmoothROM, or would you recommend something else?
anyway to get free apps kind of like jailbreaking?

PS i always enjoyed making my devices REALLY COOL and different from the defaults

Stock Nexus stuck on update to 4.2.2
My Nexus 7 is stock. That is, no custom bootloaders, ROMs, clockworkmod, etc.

This morning I selected the notification to update to version 4.2.2 ota. I didn't pay attention to it for a few minutes after that, and the next thing I saw on the screen was a "dead" android with the word "error".

I held the power / vol- buttons until it restarted, but it wouldn't get past the flashing "x". I tried that a few more times, waiting up to 30 minutes, same result.

I figured out how to get to recovery mode, but since I don't have ADB installed and would rather not wipe the thing, I'm not sure what good that does me. (I have no idea what the clear cache option would do -- do I want to try that??)

Trying to do this:
http://productforums.google.com/foru...le/ZSGv5zswdx8
http://support.google.com/nexus/bin/...0575&ctx=topic

Did nothing, except that now every time I go into recovery mode I end up with "no command".

I'm a noob -- I used to load CyanogenMod onto my Nooks using clockworkmod and a micro-SD card, but that's the extent of my "advanced" android experience. (I never could get ADB working with a nook, except through wireless.)

I got it working again. Through a very tangled combination of Wug's Toolkit and these instructions, I was able to wipe the device and reload 4.2.1. (Wug complained about the lack of ADB access and wouldn't complete the flash stock for me, but it was able to give me access to the bootloader through fastboot.)

Just read the post 284 (above your) and try this.
