Yesterday, I wanted to put together a little game station with it, centering around Wii remote support. I've read that the last android version to support the WiiMotes was 4.1. Unfortunately the N7 was launched with 4.3, so there is no official 4.1 build for the phone. I then read that CM used to have their own support for the controller. Can anyone verify if this is true? From the wayback machine, I downloaded and installed CM13, which worked fine, but while the WiiMote would "connect", it didn't actually do anything, and all for lights on the controller flashed indefinitely. Next, I went to the oldest stable build of CM available: CM10.2 (android 4.3). When I went into the latest version of TWRP to install it, I wiped everything except internal storage, and flashed the zip. I've tried this several times, and it always leads to one of 2 outcomes: either succeeds with the following output:
updating partition details... ...done Full SELinux support is present. MTP Enabled Installing zip file '/sdcard/cm-10.2.1-flo.zip' Checking for digest file... Skipping digest check: no Digest file found updating partition details... ...done
Usually successful OS flashes have a lot more output than this, right?
Other times it fails. (Using the exact same file)
I'm having trouble reproducing this error wile I write this, but it was something along the lines of
some symlinks failed.
I know the file was downloaded correctly, because it matches the checksum on the backup of the site.
I would post a wayback machine link but XDA won't let me.
LineageOS and CM13 install just fine, so the tablet isn't bricked.
So, can anyone
-help me install this old build of CM10
-Tell me a way to use wiimotes with a newer OS
-direct me to some obscure build of android 4.1 or older (WiiMotes used to work perfectly in 4.1 for all devices) for flo (I doubt this exists but maybe)
Remember, my N7 is otherwise useless to me, so I don't really care what it takes to make this work.
