Well, my N7 is pretty much useless at the moment. Came home from work and tried using the Netflix app and it wasn't working, big surprise there. I cleared cache, cleared data. Nothing. Uninstalled, reinstalled, uninstalled, reinstalled...app still not working. So I figured I'd power off and restart. Now it is stuck on the X. I never unlocked or rooted it.

I guess I'll leave plugged in all night and hope it does something in the morning.

Wish we had something like that in DC. Looks like it's road trip time!

YouTube is pretty much broke on mine.
It will Chromecast okay, but videos never play and it FC almost everytime.
Need to find another 4.3 ROM.

Edit: This looks promising.

Have you tried booting into stock recovery and doing a factory reset? About all I can recommend if you don't want to root it.

Are you talking from the Power + Volume down menu?


Forgot about this: Trying now. Thanks for the hit in the head Anti! I needed that! It is working now!

If your tablet is on, power it off.
Press and hold Power until the device powers on, then immediately press and hold Volume Down (while still pressing Power). You will see the word Start with an arrow drawn around it.
Press Volume Down twice to designate Recovery mode.
Press Power to restart into Recovery mode. You will see an image of an Android robot with a red exclamation mark.
While holding down Power, press Volume Up.
Use the volume keys to scroll to "wipe data/factory reset" and press Power to select it.
Scroll down to "Yes - erase all user data" and press Power to select it.

This. Figured I might as well root it while I was at it so I could have a backup.

More rumors of the new Nexus phone to be based on LG G2 and this time word is of a glass back. Why, oh why, must they insist on glass blacks?! Who the heck wants a glass back?! Thankfully this won't be on Verizon...I hope.

Glass back would be annoying for those who drop things.

Everyone has dropped a phone at some point. There is absolutely no point in glass back. It forces people to buy a case of which I have never done.

Glass on the back of the phone? That's so stupid.

The glass back on a phone gives people what they cry about a lot, a higher build quality that doesn't feel like cheap plastic. Aluminum has it's positives, but it also has it's negatives like denting when it drops. I'm personally not a fan of the glass back, but it doesn't get on my nerves.

Can anyone recommend a simple 4.3 rom for the Nexus phone? I don't want something like JBSourcery. I just want something simple and not full of so many add on stuff.

I've been running Stock 4.3 because I'm waiting for AOKP. I tried quite a few ROMs but none had the either fit and finish of AOKP or the stability of Stock.

Sorry Halon.

Happy Sunday y'all!

As Pup said, one can flash stock 4.3 for the GNex.

Halon, I'm using a Nexus 4 these days, sorry for the confusion. However, because I will continue to use the Nexus line, once a Nexican, always a Nexican!

Not sure why this is posted here randomly, but the only people who would say something like that about the Moto X are people who only understand hardware enough to know that more cores and higher gigahertz mean better benchmarks.

Ugh cracked the glass on my Nexus this weekend - phone still works, no cuts on my fingers. Ordered new glass and tools from eBay - has anyone replaced the glass on this thing? How difficult is it?

Maybe this is a sign its time for a new phone?

Good morning - happy Monday!

Took the day off tomorrow for my birthday, woo woo!

Good morning - happy Monday!

Took the day off tomorrow for my birthday, woo woo!
Happy early birthday!

No clue how hard it is to replace...you checked ifixit yet? I know they did a teardown back in the day.

Those commercials where the guy keeps cutting his fingers when he unlocks his phone is pretty hilarious. Sorry to hear your screen broke, but glad you aren't cutting your fingers on the screen, ha

Yeah just tripped and landed right on my pocket. Didn't even think anything of it until I got home.

I'm surprised I haven't cracked mine. There have been many times at work where I would be leaning up against something or lifting a piece of metal and my phone ends up being part of the activity.

Is this the first image of the Google Nexus 5?

Doesn't look like a glass back. No "Google" on the back either.

Well, it's official. My Moto X is ordered. Maroon (crimson as Motorola calls it) back with white front and silver trim. 32GB. The bad thing is it isn't expected to be here until next Tuesday...far from a 4 day turnaround they promised.

Got a screenshot? Sounds very nice looking.

They must be sticking with the 23rd release and just letting you use MotoMaker before everyone else?


Watched Kick Ass 2 yesterday. The first 40 minutes or so was kinda boring but the rest of it is great. If you didn't like the first you probably won't like this. I've watched the first one probably around 10 times.

Apparently Jobs tanked. Good. Ashton might look like him but his voice always sounds like Kelso from That 70's Show. Here is Woz's review of it...Jobs, Reviewed by Steve Wozniak

These are the colors I used. You can go in and save different designs and then just click order when you've sufficiently debated on your color choices, haha. I created my wife's so I can click order when she's seen mine and decided it's really what she wants. She's concerned it'll be as big as the GNex, she doesn't like that.

I think I saw a pic of it being the same size as the iphone 5. Go find one and she can judge from that.

vs galaxy nexus...http://www.phonearena.com/phones/compare/Motorola-Moto-X,Samsung-GALAXY-Nexus/phones/7885,5595

It's just a tad bigger than the iPhone 5. I think when mine comes in she'll be ready to order. I'm not really even sure I can order a second one at this point...I may check this afternoon.

I got to play with a new Nexus 7 today at Best Buy since I had to go in and buy refill cards. I have to say it is simply stunning, but I have to resist until the LTE version comes out. Jmar, since you work in the Best Buy Mobile section, do you know if I were to pop a sim card signed up for the 30 dollar plan with 5gb of data into a data enabled tablet and have it work. It just would make so much for sense to use the the 5gb that comes with that phone plan rather than only get 2gb for the same dollar amount.

I agree, I don't think it's the Nexus 4 because it doesn't have Google and/or Nexus written across the back of it. That has been their trademark on their unlocked Nexus devices.

EvLeaks: PSA: that "Nexus 5" is probably the LG Optimus L9 II. Nexus 5 (Nexus 4 v2?) looks to be a Motorola handset.

So my app downloads have skyrocketed over the past couple of weeks. Since August 5th I've had over 200 active installs added which puts me over the 6,000 mark

Just an FYI regarding Moto Maker, it appears Moto has removed the ability to add custom engravings on the back of the phone for the time being, if not permanently. I couldn't get mine added this morning, kept giving an error, but it wasn't important to me, so I just ordered anyway. Called a CSR for Moto to see if it would be added back in case my wife wanted something on hers and was told the feature had been removed from Moto Maker.

On a brighter note, she also checked my order status and it was in process and should arrive in 4 days, contrary to the 7-8 days estimated at completion of my order online.

Wow, kind of lame they took out the custom Engraving. That is a huge feature.

Congrats on the app downloads - mine have been falling and falling lately for some reason. Oh well - people are still using it and loading ads everyday.

Need to update it with some new features though. Maybe on the plane ride over to California next week.

Morning all. Some crazy rain in my town yesterday, lots of roads flooded and unfortunately a few homes and apartments too. Thankfully the worst of it stayed about a mile from my house, we still got about an inch, but some people got 5" in two hours!
