[Q] HELP - Nexus 7 RSA Key check
Firstly my apologies if this is in the wrong section but it seemed most relavent although I've been pulling my hair out all day/night so I not at my sharpest.
My issue is this:
I have a Google Nexus 7 (pre-2013) that has a cracked screen. I had it rooted originally but I was using TWRP multi-rom loader for Android and Ubuntu. After the screen cracked I couldnt get past the boot loader (even with the OTG cable and mouse). So I restored it to stock awhile back but now I want to re-root it for various reasons, namely to be able to use certain applications that will make controlling it (without OTG cable) far easier and more practical.
I continually get stuck at the RSA Key Check for USB Debugging. (as I am unable to post links I've attached a picture I came accross on the net of the RSA key check I refer to)
This only prompts when I have the USB connected to my PC, but I cant control the Nexus as I have to take the OTG out to connect it to the computer.
I have tried vast array of VNC/Remote applications but still cannot seem to tick that freaking box (or at least just say 'OK' once in order to root the device).
Tablet Remote has gotten me the closest although it doesnt allow me to click "OK" when I pair it with my Samsung S4.
VMLite was promising however its the same deal : I'm required to push 'Start Server' with the USB connection to the PC (of which I cant do, otherwise I would just hit OK on the RSA key check)
Numerous other VNC Server apps or ones of similar nature require root access (of which I am trying to get!)
- I dont have any bluetooth devices in the house (except my old SixAxis controller from PS3 but SixAxis requires root privileges).
- Im not confident of whipping up a home made 'OTG Y Cable' so I can have both USB input to the computer and OTG mouse input
Short of buying either of these (a bluetooth mouse for example or a suitable OTG cable), is there anything I can do? Its so frustrating to not be able to proceed because of 1 stupid box.
Is there a way to disable this RSA check or is there an avenue I havnt explored yet that could solve this for me?
Many thanks in advance!!
