It won't nullify it. People returned their n7s rooted and customs Roms and received their replacements. You can always unroot and return to full stock. I doubt we will ever see official support for 3g dongles.

you have a nexus man.no need to worries about that.google offer system images also for this,every nexus broken i heard of was changed in RMA without problems of custom roms\kernels\root

EDIT damn,in the ppp's app comment on googl play there's a comment by an italian who sad that k3765 web keys don't works.it's the same i own,from vodafone carrier (included in my dsl contract)but i never ever tried due to fact i haven't the usbOTG cable (ordered yesterday from ebay).i think that in many web key it's needed a little rework via putty (app for windows).i did this on my wb key tom have it working on transformer,and i think that being both asus tablets,and with this little work,many types of web key can works.curious to test it hen i receive my cable!

yes,it's very simple man.RMA is the assistence centre in case of problems.with nexus image i refer to THIS.they are google's images for users who want to re-stock the tab to its natural conditions,or if you screwed the tab and want to do a clean install\format of all.it's praticaally the google standard firmwares for related version of nexus devices.with that you can always restore it with factory's state.there's more to read,do a simple search here or google,we are OT with that.

EDIT
if yu have a not-working key web,i suggest trying THIS,how explained from D and so on with the app putty for windows.pratically it deactivate the composite devices of the 3g dongle

I am from India too, got my N7 in August, I have been in the US since the last 2 years, moving back in Nov. Dont worry, Asus said they will honor N7 warranty in India. Plus N7 is launching in India in Nov for around 15k. So please dont commit sacrilege by not rooting a nexus. Its part of the Android commandments- "Thou shalt not use thine nexus unrooted."

I tried this with a friend's huawei, can't remember which model but newer than mine and it worked fine. With my E160 it goes a bit nuts, won't detect a modem and doesn't work with manual settings.
Does anyone have an E160 working with their N7?

Got it, for anyone interested, sending the following at command to the modem port (use a computer to do this, use Google to find a utility for your OS, Hyper Terminal works on Windows) disables the built in SD card reader and the emulated CD ROM drive. Now it works in the N7 after a reboot.

at^u2diag=0

If you want to enable them again (and stop it working on the N7) it's

at^u2diag=255


I see that sert00 posted a link to this info already but it was a little buried in the post...

Thumbs up
I can confirm that this works with my 3G/UMTS ZTE K4505, commonly found in Europe (I am using it with Vodafone.de). Only had to manually set the PIN and the APN. The wiget itself is a bit finnicky with my set up - Stickmount seems to interfere when the widget is looking for an open modem port and attempts to mount the inbuilt Micro-SD reader on the stick. I simply unmount all devices via Stickmount, remove PPP widget from my home screen and then re-add it. This seems to fix the problem, I am then able to connect.

Kudos to Josua!
