    Nexus devices don't have special magic in them that lets you modify the system with impunity. If you mod the device badly, you will get stuck. Just like any other tablet, phone, computer, etc.

    If you've modified your device and it's acting flaky, it's not the fault of Google. It's not the fault of Asus. It's your fault.

    Now, if you'd like help modding the device or fixing your problems, I'm sure people here could help. There's no point in trying to shove blame off on the device, though, like it was designed to be "touchy" or they could have done something to avoid it.

    this. also why are you changing the dpi of the device to 160? for tablet ui? use the tablet ui patch for the device to not brick the device. there was a reason google chose 213 dpi. changing the dpi was ur fault so dont accuse the device. the nexus 7 was designed for 213 dpi. a fix would be re-locking the bootloader and unlocking it again. that will reset everything.

    There with you Cammy. I've never had any serious problems with my Gnex, but with all the issues trying to ROM my N7, I'm just going to hold off. Really like it stock as it is, so it's no big deal.

    Ever try a pure AOSP build then adding a tabletUi that doesn't require a DPI change?

    I use that right now.

    Yeah, every time I've boot looped or got my n7 stuck, I'm pretty sure it was my own fault. I haven't had much difficulty with the n7 as compared to my GNex.

    I change DPI to go between tablet and phone mode pretty frequently. Never had a bootloop issue.

    I know its my fault but like my phone is never this touchy. Love changed tjw DPI on it and it powered thru.

    Best to use a JB-safe app to change the dpi, o/w too easy to corrupt your prop.build file or mess up the permissions of the file or folder, which could cause the problem you describe.

    I'm kinda feelin the same way....... I have an lg esteem and I'm constantly modding and flashing cuz I was never satisfied with speed stability or ui or whatever host of reasons but now with the stock n7 I'm......... Satisfied!!!! Very happy playing for now but I'm sure the time will come......

    Not being super great with this stuff I followed Rev. Kyle's instructions on YouTube.
    The only time things didn't go as-stated was when I didn't pay attention, but as soon as I realized my mistake I had my Nexus 7 unlocked, rooted, and the stock browser and flash installed no sweat.

    Sorry to read of the troubles.

    The point really is that there's no such thing as a "touchy" or, alternately, a "tolerant" device.

    There is code and there are system files on the device. There are applications, scripts and mods that change these things.

    The applications, scripts and mods either change things correctly (device is happy) or incorrectly (device is sad). Phone, tablet, Asus, Motorola, Samsung, Android, Apple, Blackberry... the same is true for all devices.

    If you're repeatedly causing problems with your device, you are either using the incorrect applications/scripts/mods, or you are doing something incorrectly.

    There is a lot of good advice in this thread. Read instructions, make sure you're using the most up to date utilities, and make backups. It's easy to do something minor and end up with a bootlooping device.

    But let's not get into teasing people. That's not what we do here.
