New Nexus 7 Android OS (2nd Gen) / Kit Kat App hiccups
« on: November 30, 2013, 12:13:35 AM »
I was curious what apps folks are discovering that are not compatible at the moment. It might help someone decide whether to update or not.
I will start with a CNN.  Recently fixed,  Fios mobile.

I get an error stating no recoveries available for your device now when trying to use RTB to install new versions of such. I know the app can be dangerous if you don't know what you are doing but I have only used it for installing recoveries in the past. CWM touch used to be free... I use TWRP but none of them are there anymore...Anyone know what the issue is?

The Lounge: Off Topic Forum / Samsung Galaxy EK GC110 Camera
« on: September 24, 2013, 10:07:25 PM »
I had some Best Buy Rewards points that were about to expire and I bought this camera on a whim. I saw it on clearance in the open box section and was stunned when I read the box. Jelly Bean 4.2.1 ! This thing takes a killer shot for the money and its like having a mini Nexus. I only have had it for a day but so far it is awesome. I'm not abandoning my Nexus but the camera gives me the best of both worlds and for 300 bucks it was a steal.
Added bonus. My Dropbox account expired a month ago. They wanted 100 bucks for the year to renew. Surprise! The camera came with 2 years of DB @50 gigs. I'm stoked.

Nexus 7 Apps / Chromecast Warning
« on: September 05, 2013, 04:34:06 PM »
I have had my Chromecast for a while now and although limited atm to a few apps , I love it. However, I have noticed that when media is finished it returns to a splash screen. The splash screen shows Ready to Cast in big letters across the top right of the screen. I fell asleep for a couple hours and The letters have started to burn into my pretty new Panny TC P50. I think there might be a setting on my TV for a screensaver when static images occur. Not sure. I have to look into a remedy.
Just wanted to warn folks.

New Nexus 7 Help (2nd Gen) / Cursor Jump
« on: August 27, 2013, 09:44:02 PM »
Not sure if i mentioned this before. Sorry if it is a repeat.. I am having problems with my keyboard.  When editing text it is nearly impossible to set the two markers. I also have an extremely annoying issue that occurs when trying to edit. After editing a sentence and resetting the cursor to the end of the phrase, typing a letter brings me back to where I was before and starts erasing the text. The only thing that fixes it is if I turn the nexus off and on I can then resume . Better yet . Sometimes my kb will freeze and then start deleting text on its own. Like the back key is stuck. Anyone else encountering this? Maybe time for a reset, BTW , this was happening before I rooted the tablet.
This is a pre drop issue. Lol

New Nexus 7 Root, Hacks, Mods And Development (2nd Gen) / OTA Problems ?
« on: August 27, 2013, 09:29:59 PM »
Not having OTA Rootkeeper is a new one for me. I relied on that app only a handful of times, yet I surely took it for granted. I had an OTA update for 4.3 yesterday. I thought it was properly installed because I had a Supersu message popup warning about reestablishing root after the install. I am still rooted but apparently the update failed because I received another update. It failed as well but is hard to tell. The update does its thing and then boots to TWRP. No error message. I am thinking about storing my fresh root/ app install nandroid on the PC and going back to stock until all of these updates are finished.

New Nexus 7 General Discussion Topics (2nd Gen) / Bad Luck
« on: August 25, 2013, 02:39:31 PM »
My semi new tablet hit the ground today. I have a crack in the glass. Bottom right corner. So far it doesn't affect performance and it is out of the user range of the screen. Well I got used to the other being dinged up. It adds character.
I have no extended warranty. How long do you have to buy the extension? Lol

New Nexus 7 Cameras (2nd Gen) / Camera Issues
« on: July 28, 2013, 02:02:40 PM »
I didn't expect much from the camera but I think my rear cam might have problem. Everything has a horrible blue hue, even in the best of light. Is this normal? I will post pic later when I get home.

New Nexus 7 General Discussion Topics (2nd Gen) / New Setup
« on: July 26, 2013, 06:08:33 PM »
 I was lucky enough to score a new 32 at Best Buy. Setting her up now. It is a little time consuming without Titanium. Fun nevertheless!  I didn't have time to grab the Chromecast.
I will pass on anything worth mentioning as I discover it.

I found myself getting emotional after seeing all the destruction and what a little bit of love can do.

Nexus 7 Help / Battery Drain While Charging
« on: May 04, 2013, 06:42:13 PM »
I have noticed lately that while my Nexus is plugged into the wall and I am using it, the battery doesn't charge much. It either drains or stays basically level like using a clutch on a hill. I am using the original plug but a different USB cord(s) than original. I didn't think that could be an issue but now I am not so sure. I keep my light on the lowest level possible. Its really annoying because if the cord disconnects while using it, I get the low battery warning. Maybe it is just aging..

The Lounge: Off Topic Forum / Boost Mobile Free Month
« on: April 26, 2013, 11:19:13 AM »
I changed carriers to Verizon a few months back. I had been using Boost for about 9 months or so. Twice in the past 4 months I have gotten an email stating we activated your phone for a free month for being a loyal customer. Pretty cool. I use the phone mostly just to hotspot. Two weeks ago they threatened to take my number and now they gave me a free month of unlimited service. I really hate my Verizon service. I wish I could go back without the huge termination fee.

Nexus 7 General Discussion / Play Store 4
« on: April 23, 2013, 06:32:38 PM »
I stumbled upon and downloaded the new version of the Play Store. I didn't get a notification for an update. Did anyone get an OTA /notification or update or was this something that needed to be downloaded and installed like I did? Been busy at work lately, I feel like I missed something..
