It appears that to solve the problems generated by Google, it will be necessary to root this tablet. I for one, am looking forward to it, but have a serious problem. I have never attempted this procedure before on any device.
I am hoping and praying that when someone does root the thing, they will be kind enough to write a procedure that can be followed by a noob like me.
I can follow a script very well. As long as the person writing the script doesn't assume I know what is happening ahead of time. The type of script I need is one that includes EVERY step, including the mundane things like plug wire (a) into slot (b). Otherwise I am left to my own devices, which usually means I end up ordering pizza and forget about everything else.
So, PLEASE, someone root the Nexus 7 and write a procedure that the rest of us simple folk can follow. The world and I, will be forever grateful.
