Hey all

I thought I works start a thread to discuss our observations of the update. This day we can keep other threads clean.

First and foremost, the n7 feels smooth again to me.

I was really sick of how slow it felt on 4.2.1....this seems to have fixed that.

I agree smoother and much faster it seems, boot was almost instant, I installed a game I use to play and it starts faster and runs better. Can say I am very pleased.

Although ADB from a PC works fine, ADB in loopback mode on a rooted device seems broken:

starting adb in loopback (commands entered on the device itself):

Code:
setprop service.adb.tcp.port 5555
stop adbd
start adbd
adb connect localhost
any adb command after that (like "adb shell ...") will fail with "error device offline", which is confirmed with adb devices:

Code:
shell@android:/ $ adb devices
adb devices
List of devices attached
localhost:5555  offline

This worked perfectly in previous versions...

This must be related to Google enforcing RSA authentication with ADB: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2144709

Probably, and this is going to break some mount scripts that use this ability to call adb shell in loopback mode.

As if mounting was not already overly problematic since 4.2...

Re: (observation thread) 4.2.2 discussion
Agreed feels smoother than 4.2.1 before upgraded to 4.2.2 I would encounter lag anytime there is any WiFi data transmission, eg... when downloading and installing an application, when updating or syncing an application, thing use to lag till WiFi was done transmitting and doing whatever it was doing. It seems fine now on 4.2.2

Happy with my n7 again!!!

Re: (observation thread) 4.2.2 discussion
It actually seemed a lot slower than 4.2.1 at first, but, after a few reboots, the butter is back. I didn't notice that I lost root until I rebooted a few times, so that could've been the cause of the lag, as apps were probably looking for su in the background.

Just curious on how soon Devs roll out updates to their Roms,Kernels and Toolkits. This was my first OTA on a custom rom so I am eager to get back to my custom tablet.
