Nexus 7 Polls / Re: The Nexus 9 Will You Make the Switch?
« on: October 16, 2014, 09:26:04 AM »
My wife want's me to pick her up a N9.  We still use our N7's but she feels that her battery doesn't hold a charge and thinks that the hardware is getting dated and laggy.  I'm still happy with my 7.  I used the Android L developer preview for a while and think that switching to ART will bring some life back into the N7 fleet when Lollipop drops.

+loociddreemr Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't the system partition untouched only if you are rooted? Also if you are not rooted and using the stock recovery can you explain the difference in performing a factory reset from the Nexus 7's device settings versus from the stock recovery? I have read conflicting information.

Even without root, the device has no reason to assume that anything on the system partition has been changed, hence no "real" action is taken on that partition. Data from system apps will be removed, such as user accounts, preferences, and settings. This information isn't actually stored in the system partition but in sdcard/android/data or /data/data. The use of emulated directories within these folders allows the simultaneous clearing of both system and user settings. However, the .apk will remain unchanged. If a system app was disabled, a factory reset will clear that condition as a "setting" restoring the app. Deleted apps will not come back regardless.

Now depending on the ROM, a factory reset from the menu options in the ROM itself will vary depending on OEM. Media downloaded from Google play will be lost since it's stored in the /data/data. Pictures from the camera are typically not deleted unless the "format sdcard" option is used.

A factory reset doesn't touch the system partition. That's actually a trick I used to use. If you make user apps system apps, they will be there after a factory reset.

No need to unroot necessarily. Install the full factory image in recovery. Shouldn't give you a problem. Anyone have a link to the image.zip?

This error is pointing to a discrepancy on the system apps binary directory. Have you uninstalled any system apps or converted user apps to system apps? This will undoubtedly cause an error with an OTA. Are you rooted? Custom recovery?

Give us a little more about your situation. Are you rooted? Which model N7? Regular OTA or sideload?

I was on G+ earlier today and someone asked how to install a kernel on a Nexus 5. He was rooted with stock recovery. I instructed him on installing a custom recovery and flashing the kernel, but he bootlooped. He didn't have a nandroid or the stock kernel. I had to walk him through getting the phone in fastboot and flashing stock firmware with Wugfresh. The dude was ecstatic. I sent him the link to my ADB and Fastboot tutorial. Really made me miss you guys and how much I enjoyed helping everyone.

Sometimes booting into recovery while plugged in to the PC and USB debugging enabled forces additional drivers to install. Worth a shot.

It's been a busy life! Lots of OT at work. Wife is expecting again! Due in February. I've been without my Nexus for months. I shattered the screen again. Been holding out for a 2013. My wife says I have to buy her one too!

Nexus 7 Android OS (Jelly Bean) / Re: What does the 4.4 upgrade give me?
« on: November 25, 2013, 04:17:31 AM »
Immersive mode is really nice and hopefully more applications will make use of it in the coming months. As much as I liked the Holo blue I'm really liking the white status icons and overall de-blue of Android.

Sent from my Nexus 5 using Tapatalk
I like the removal of the holo blue as well. I think this was a big favor for the themers. Removing all that blue and substituting other colors was painstaking! Could never find that one .PNG!

Had to flash 4.4 onto my Nexus 4 as nothing good would work.

Now I have the 4.4.1 OTA on my Nexus 10 and it failed via TWRP so not sure how to proceed now.

I assume my Nexus 5 will get it soon also, so need advice for both.

I'm considering unrooting all devices so as not to have to keep reinstalling everytime.

I thought rooting made life easier ;)

I made a habit of making a nandroid of a rooted stock ROM immediately after update without installing any apps. For instance, right out of the box, unlock bootloader, custom recovery, root, nandroid. No apps installed, only Google login. Next time there is an update, restore this nandroid. Update and then immediately back up again. Restore apps with titanium. This preserves the ROM from any adulterations. Easy update at any time!

I'd advise not using that method, more info in my link above...

Jay, it's funny we were all about this method a year ago! Now we know better...
