    Post Stuck in BootLoop and Factory Wiping doesn't actually wipe anything

    I have a similar problem, but I think mine is related to the bootloader. I'm stuck on 3.34 and that's where it fails ever time I try Wug's Nexus Tool Kit. Have you tried Nexus Tool Kit yet?

    Post [Q] Can't seem to flash or update from fastboot or recovery. HELP

    Update, with new information. I tried to do a complete wipe a la the guide that's stickied in this forum, and it's led me to a bit of new information. It seems that my bootloader is repeatedly failing to update from version 3.23 every time giving either the "InvalidState" error, or when I use...

    Post [ROM] VanirAOSP [official] [nightlies] [4.4.4] organized, clean, fast.

    Strange things are happening I'm having some trouble with my N7 running Vanir. Everything is fine most of the time it works, but every now and then, the device just freezes up. I tried to update to a newer version, but none of my rom flashes seem to take. I've also noticed that none of my...

    Post Nexus 7 Help Thread

    Fastboot and recovery won't flash roms or update. I've never had problems like this and I've been flashing custom roms and recovery since HTC G1 days. Maybe you chaps can enlighten me a bit. I can boot into all partitions of my device just fine, regular system, recovery, bootloader all okay...

    Post Android 4.2 Jelly Bean Keyboard

    Has anyone else noticed that it's possible to two finger swipe as well? Like with two thumbs. Its difficult, and takes some practice, but it is possible. Also I've noticed that questionable words can't be swiped; sex, sexual, ass, etc... Don't ask how I found this out.

    Post Adding a Rear Camera to the Nexus 7 - H/W Hack

    I was hoping that this thread would show up eventually. I added a front facing cam to my Vibrant, but it looks like this might be a little more complicated. Good luck, I'm interested in seeing where this goes.

    So, I've had an issue that has been nagging me since about the time I started using PA. Whenever I launch maps the pointer that's supposed to be where I am constantly rotates. I've used many different kernels and all different updates to PA but no fix. Yesterday I installed a GPS tester and...

    Post is there a way to get tablet google search bar?

    I had something like that using Apex Launcher, but after a recent update it changed. I'd be willing to bet that you could get it back using a DPI switch or a ROM like Paranoid Android to force tablet mode from that application. Edit: Works like a charm on Paranoid Android

    Keep holding out on hope op! I had my phone lost for days and days and when it finally came on Lookout notified me immediately. I had it within the hour.

    Post Tasker and Nexus 7

    Set a variable that changes values when you are connected to WiFi and then a task with an if that only executes if the value is whatever when you are not connected. Might not be the best way, but that's where I would start.

    Post Tablet UI on Nexus 7 [How to / Video / Build.prop Modification]

    I think he is talking about the app drawer. After the DPI change my drawer looks like the attached picture. There are more apps on the next page, they just don't fill the bottom of the drawer's screen. I am using Apex Launcher.

    Post How to pair a Wireless Xbox 360 Controller and fix Camera Spin

    So during cinematics like in Dead Trigger when the Zack gets too close, do you drop the controller and have to touch the screen? I suck at this game, so that happens to me a LOT.

    Post Defective Exchanges @ Gamestop

    Funny. I bought my tablet at a GameStop and since then I have been to 5 more stores between Houston and Dallas and the only store that agreed to exchange my N7 didn't because I got to Waxahachie 20 mins after they closed. (My fault obv.) One store refused to even though they had one in stock...

    I would suggest getting it if you can afford it. 90% of the time, I use it at home; but if I'm going on a plane, or the subway, or any kind of trip where I can't count on a strong WiFi or tetherable cellular signal, I don't also want to be forced to deal with size limitations that I could have...
