So I recently purchased a Logitech k400 keyboard/trackpad combo for my raspberry pi, as well as taking it around with my N10 if necessary. However, for whatever reason, the tablet just won't recognize the keyboard plugged in over OTG. I've tested it on my N7 and it works like a charm. I've done some research and realized that this is pretty much universal.

Is there any way to get the N10 to recognize the keyboard? An app or something?

Thanks!

The drivers for the Unifying receiver are not included in the N10 Kernel.

With the Kernel from craigacgomez it will work:

You can find his standalone Kernels here:

I'm using the "manta-kernel-stock-cgomez.23112012.zip" and its working pretty good.

Hopefully Google will add the drivers with the next Update.

Am i just supposed to flash those over stock, or is there a custom ROM that goes with them?

I flashed "manta-kernel-stock-cgomez.23112012" over Stock 4.2.2.

I have some "normal Nexus 10 Problems" with reboots and lags, but I'm quite sure its not the Kernel.

Try both and tell us your experiences

Hi glensta,
I have purchased N10 two days back and I was really disappointed when my logitech keyboad did not work. I see you could get working. Can you please help me to install required drivers. Please note that I am very new to android. After looking at few videos and links I have understood rooting and flashing but still not very clear. So I will appreciate if you can explain me step by step procedure to get my keyboard working. I am really sorry if I am asking too much. But I would be really thankful to you if you can help me. We can connect over email also if you want.

Thanks...

Hi rbirahul,

If you're rooted and know how to flash a rom & kernel, then it's easy. If not, You'll need to understand this first before going forward.

All I did was I have this rom installed here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2177978

and then I installed the kernel below:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2015874

That's all you need really. The keyboard will work with this setup.

Thanks Glnsta for reply.

Hi Glensta,
No I have never rooted any android device. That is why I have been reading about it. So following are the option which I though of trying.

You have asked to get flashable zip file from below link.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2015874

I hope below is zip file

http://www.mediafire.com/download/sp...05-14-2013.zip

Not sure how to flash zip file. So downloaded toolkit from below link. It has all options like root, flash, boot...... but not sure what is the correct way as I am afraid that I may get into issues.

http://www.wugfresh.com/nrt/

I downloaded toolkit from above link. Install required drivers for toolkit to couple with nexus 10. Now I think I am one or two step away from what I need to do but I am afraid to do that. Do I need to always root android device to flash zip file?

If you think that I should not get into all these issues and drop this idea then let me know. I really donít want to damage on my new N10.

Regards

Hi rbirahul - I'm sure the wugfresh toolkit works fine. I prefer this one: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2001868.

start there and then follow the steps I've suggested already. There's plenty of info out there and it's not as hard as it seems. Believe me I've put plenty & plenty of hours into learning and made plenty of mistakes, but never damaged my nexus 10 beyond repair. You'll need to do your home work.

Also - when someone helps you, hit the "thanks" button as a show of appreciation.
