slopdate 4.2 by Merlin
« on: November 16, 2012, 02:05:43 PM »
Methinks the Mirrorcast is not the Grail of which we seek. It would seem that summoning the beast Netflix or Hulu and projecting it into the Circle would require 2 wyfy spells while the Nexus amulet contains only 1. Perhaps a helper spell such as the Blue Tooth or Orange Eye or Yellow Finger would be required. Or the merging of 2 amulets with sticky tape and an Ourouborus would suffice. I must consult the Leenux Grimoire.

Enough of that.
So multiuser will eat storage with multiple instances of the same app.
And Miracast will turn the Nex7s into a console that kids will fight over and destroy.

Do I need to install this update to get the next one?

Yes, when the next update comes around, you must be current on the update path.

That's not how I read it.

I thought only 1 instance, but multi data folders so that each user had separate user files.

Just added a new account and you have to install apps again, but they're instant, no downloads.

Well the 4.2 broke my amazon appstore. No longer memory resident, have to be online and login to amazon to use all payed for apps from there. Uninstalled appstore, reinstalled, rebooted. Waiting for appstore update now. Suckseggs.

Got reply from amazon support, they suggested uninstall, reboot, reinstall. Tried that 4 times already.
Found a thread at xda, it's a known problem to amazon and they're working on it. So they stall and give me the runaround? Not cool. Still suckseggs.

Each log in to appstore creates a new device instance, for a maximum of 25. Have to go delete all these nexus 7s periodically. Pita. Rantover.

On the + side, wifi connects are 3sec instead of 15 and web pages load much faster. Success.

A bit harsh, maybe. 'Support' could be automated A.I. canned response. A bit cheaper than outsourcing to India. I should build a robot to do my job before I'm beaten to it and join the ranks of the once-employed.
