Apologies all if this is not a new topic, but I couldn't find it elsewhere. Please redirect me if it is. Daughter just deleted a folder with 2 years of pics and video on her Nexus 7 2013 2nd gen. As it was done outside of the photo app it can't retreive the data from within the app, so I'm looking for a way of retreiving the folder itself. I seem to have found that all the apps that say they can do this need a rooted device to work, so, firstly, does anyone know of a way to root a 2nd gen Nexus 7 2013, now on Android 6.0.1 using Mac OS X? Obviously a free version would be appreciated if at all possible...

Many, many thanks if any of you can help. :-)

Hi. My daughter's Nexus 7 running Android 6.1 (I think), is intermittantly working and then not working on it's ethernet internet connection. This started after a system update and seemed to correct itself a few days later, but then re-occurred, and now appears to have stuck not working.
Anyone out there had anything similar happen? Is it a setting that gets reset on update?
I would be grateful for any help on this - I've exhausted my ideas on this one...
Many thanks...

Dear Nexus Community, I am here because I have run out of ideas for connecting my daughter's Nexus 7 (2nd Gen, running Android 6.1 Marshmallow, not jail broken) to the internet.
For various reasons we need a wired rather than wifi connection. Previously we have managed to get it working using an Ethernet cable from the Router, joined to a Female Ethernet to Micro USB adaptor, straight into the Nexus 7 (We were using Android 5.1 at this time, but it also ceased to work whilst using 5.1).

Seemed to work well for a while but the adaptors don't last long in a young person's (ok, my daughters), hands. I bought a new adaptor recently, and since then, haven't been able to access internet on the Nexus. Did the latest adaptor arrive damaged? I don't know, but it shows it's red light upon being connected, and I am under the understanding that this means the adaptor is showing some sort of network link. I have been into the Nexus and checked no obvious lack of connection/damage/wear with the microUSB housing. All is solid there.

I wonder if some kind genius might walk me through the set up for the Nexus to access a wired internet connection, just incase I have missed something obvious, and/or point me in the direction of any tools to analyse where the problem might be located.

Many thanks to anyone who can help on this one! I have a passing knowledge of Android, but probably miss as much as I have found.
Regards,  pymason :-)
