Talking A worthy sucessor - Sero 7 Pro

Well, after 2+ years of watching the devs go absolutely bananas on my Nook Color, I think I've found my next 7" device. The Hisense Sero 7 Pro is a Nexus 7 clone with the addition of a back camera and an SD card slot. Picked it up yesterday, had it rooted and a debloated ROM on it within 20 minutes.

I won't go nuts with a full fledged review, but I will say that for the same price I paid in 2011 for my NC, this device is a beast. Happy to answer any questions if someone wants specifics, but there are a couple of good threads and Youtube videos out already.

I am of exactly the same opinion. I had a great ride with Nookie and all the devs, but this Pro 7 rocks

Just picked mine up today and I'm very happy with it! $150 bucks what's not to like. I have noticed a little staggering here and there but I'm not going to hold it against a $150 buck tablet. Going to root tomorrow and see how that goes.

I have one of these. It's very nice. Like a nexus 7. Can't wait for CM10.1

Gorira, try out the XE rom from xboxexpert here on XDA. It's just a stripped down version of stock with the option to flash the tablet UI mod, but I've been very happy with the performance. Also, his root tool is as painless as I've seen. If it seems to hang, just hit the power button to wake your screen.

You that's going to happen with this? I'd love it but won't hold my breath

Another migration from the NC to the S7P. It seemed like I had no sooner read about the device when I found xboxexpert's thread. Well. If I can root it I need to try it. Now the wife is reading her Castle books on her newly acquired NC. Unfortunately not even my youngest wants Mom's old WPDN.

Mine has been super solid so far. We've got another dev in thread talking about picking one up as well as some noobies like me picking up where we can. Honestly, even rooted debloated 4.2.1 is pretty excellent, but CM 10.1 or PA would be sweet.

Have Nook Tablet (not HD or Color) just got Sero 7 Pro a few days ago. Just rooted it with no problem. Not sure I need custom Rom yet. if/when CM10.1 is avail Will go to that. Have that on Nook and love it.

For now Rooted Stock works well. other that getting rid of ~80meg of junk apps what do you get with the xboxexperts ROM?

might just do tablet ui and circle battery tweaks.

Overall very happy to get 2 cameras, BT and GPS

This Tablet has the potential to one of the hottest devices. It can play some high end games with little issues. A good example is the RavenSword game.
