It may sound unrelated but go how come you haven't made an unboxing of the device? Also is there will be a review?

The unboxing will arrive on Monday. I had already shot and edited the video prior to these. I just thought these were more important so I uploaded them first

The white from the light of the computer makes it hard to follow in some spots, also a lot of ppl prob don't know how to upgrade the Google USB drivers (I know simple but could not so adv ppl could get lost etc).

Overall good videos, my N7(2013) thanks you

I notice people always say to turn usb debugging on but I've done it both my Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 and never turned debugging on for either one and it still works the same.

Thanks for the vids!

just bought the old N7 32gb for just under $200 last week. Decided that I don't need that much space and would rather have the better hardware so I'm returning the first gen and getting the latest 16gb version!

Not sure if I missed it, but it should be noted that unlocking the bootloader wipes ALL your data!
