General device information and quick tips

Factory User Manual
Nexus Q Guidebook - Here

Bootloader mode w/ out adb
From dormin at RootzWiki(original thread here post#3)
  1. Plug in the Nexus Q
  2. Immediately cover the center led with your hand
  3. Remove your hand when the ring light turns red
  4. The device should stay red and be in bootloader mode

Easter Egg
From Sam Byford w/ article here)
  1. Plug in the Nexus Q
  2. Launch your Nexus Q app
  3. Rapidly tap the Nexus Q ball (in the app, don't B**ch slap your actual Nexus Q)
  4. You will enter a Magic 8-Ball mode
  5. Ask it stuff! (doesn't really do much right now)

Factory Restore w/out app
From princeofvegas at RootzWiki(original thread here Post#5)
  1. Unplug the Device
  2. Plug it back in and put your hand over the center LED
  3. When the LEDs turn red continue to hold your hand there until the LEDs turn purple/blue
  4. Factor Reset is complete!

*Please let me know if you have a hack/mod/tweak or other that is "stable" for regular use so i can list it. By "stable" I mean things that can be done easily by the non-dev people. I left off things like pushing adb commands from a phone to launch apps etc.

**Note, I'm not a dev just someone who wants to help out. If you would like me to do some thorough testing PM me!
