4.1.2 Issue
« on: October 25, 2012, 02:35:49 PM »
I've had my Nexus 7 since July and I've been completely satisfied with it. Once I got the 4.1.2 update some strange things have been happening and I'm trying to pin down the reasons since it seems to be a software issue and not a hardware one. The first event happened when I was trying a Live Wall Paper, Oceans HD. After setting the LWP and using it for a few minutes the next time I picked the tablet up and tried turning it on I noticed it had reset. No problem, except after the splash screen everything would go dark again and the power button didn't seem to work at all unless I waited for a while, and tried long pressing it and rebooting the device. After a few reboots of this the screen began to behave weirdly, sort of looking as it there was a problem with the video driver since it looked like a an old TV screen with static. I thought the video hardware was toast and was relived the next day when I tried to reboot again that the tablet rebooted to the default WP. No problems after that. I contacted the maker of the LWP thinking that was the problem. However, after trying out another LWP from another maker, the same thing happened after a few days of use. Jumped through the same hoops and got the WP changed to a static one. I went online and read through a few forums to see if anyone had the same problems but was not bale to find the same issue. I read something about the auto brightness and turned my auto brightness off to see if that works. What do you guys think about this? I use the tablet a lot and for professional purposes often. I cannot afford to have it go bonkers during a presentation.

I had that same wallpaper but decided that it affected the performance of my tablet. I never had an event like you are describing though. It made my phone reboot and I swore that my tablet would lag and the battery was draining a lot faster . I  have given up on LW all together.

LWP's are notorious CPU and battery hoggers, the Tegra CPU is a very powerful CPU so I would suggest avoiding LWP's.
Having said that, I've just checked the reviews of Oceans HD for the Nexus 7 and apart from causing lag the reviews are quite good. I would suggest something else is the cause of this, maybe a software bug so try a factory data reset...

I would have to agree with bjs229 and JayJ and add that if you depend on your Nexus 7 for professional purposes, then have a rooted device with a current nandroid backup, which can be restored in a matter of minutes and have your presentation on a usb drive with an OTG cable or have it stored on Google drive or some other cloud storage.
