KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 7 - Back Up Device Before Rooting Or Installing Custom ROM?

May 7, 2014

I want to install Cyanogenmod and root my Nexus 7 2013, but I don't know what I should do to backup.

I previously tried to root and install CM on my Motorola Atrix HD on AT&T and successfully rooted it, unlocked the bootloader, and installed Clockwork Mod. I made sure to click backup and proceeded to delete the version of Android on the device and install Cyanogenmod. Cyanogenmod did not successfully install and I wanted to restore my device back to it the backup I made. It said that it did it successfully, but the device gets stuck on the AT&T logo when booting up and doesn't go past that.

I don't want to have to go through the same trouble with my Nexus 7 not being able to restore back to a backup in case something goes wrong. I'm using the Nexus Root Toolkit on my PC and will probably use the Cyanogenmod installer for installing CM11 (if there are any drawbacks to using the installer). What should I use to backup my device and how would I restore it back to stock if something goes wrong? And if I have a bricked device, how can I flash it back to stock?

General :: Nexus 7 2013 / Kitkat 4.4.2 - Can't Connect To Web

Jan 21, 2014

I have enjoyed my nexus 7 2103, on 4.4.2, for a few weeks now. I got adblockplus to clean up my browsing. My office wifi wasn't letting me ssh tunnel to my home server, so I set up hotspot vpn shield, but it limits usage in the free version. So I grabbed connectbot and proxydroid to get in, root using wugfresh to make those work properly. Got what I needed from the home server, shut it down, and headed for home.

So I got home, and Chrome now says Unable to connect to proxy server. So I made sure connectbot and proxyserver were not connected, and deleted the profiles I'd set up. No luck. Deleted the apps. No luck. Deleted the apps, no luck. Turned off ad block plus and deleted that, no luck. Cleared out hotspot vpn shield, deleted, nothing.

So I tried factory reset, no luck. Then I read that some people have had luck reinstalling those apps that changed proxy settings, which hasn't worked for me yet. I've tried restoring the backup I made preroot, no luck.

What can I do to get my nexus back online? I finally found the proxy settings under kitkat (totally different than older versions, you press and hold the network name, NOT intuitive). I'm back online, and will tell my self I'll be more careful in the future. But I won't be.

General :: Spoofing MAC Address On Nexus 7 FLO With KitKat?

Dec 7, 2013

I recently bought a Nexus 7 Flo tablet running the latest Android 4.4. I've since been trying to spoof a MAC address on it, but for some reason the wireless card seems to refuse to use the spoofed mac no matter what I do.

There's a more detailed discussion what I've tried in android.stackexchange.com/questions/57922/wifi-network-not-accessible-with-modified-mac-address (forum won't let me link), but I'll repeat the main points here. I have tried both ip link set wlan0 address XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX and busybox ifconfig wlan0 hw ether XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX. They both result in the MAC address being changed as far as I can tell from the output of ip link and busybox ifconfig, but when connecting to a network with MAC filtering with the spoofed MAC address being allowed, the device fails to connect. /sys/class/net/wlan0/address also shows the spoofed address. If I use the device's stock MAC and add this to the filter on the AP, then the device connects successfully.

General :: Nexus 5 - Permission Manager For KitKat?

Nov 14, 2013

I'm on the Nexu5 and was wondering whether or not the permissions manager was reachable through Kit Kat? I've tried the usual permission manager / App Ops stuff from the Play Store and nothing seems to work. Is there a way to access it or did they take it back away with Kit Kat?

General :: Installing Nexus 7 Rom On Sero 7 Pro?

Jan 26, 2014

So, my question is just what the title says. It's probably an incredibly stupid question, but i'm curious nonetheless.

Everyone keeps saying that the Hisense Sero 7 Pro has hardware that's basically identical to the Nexus 7 (grouper), besides the sd card slot, and I was wondering if it's possible to install a rom that's meant for one, on the other.

The main reason I ask is i'd like to install AOKP, PA, or even Ubuntu Touch on my Sero Pro, but I can't find a way to do this.

Even if there are roms that I haven't found yet that work on the Sero, I'm still curious about my original question...

General :: Nexus 7 - How To Roll Back From Kitkat To Jelly Bean

Feb 1, 2014

I have a Nexus 7 2012 wifi version that I have updated to kit kat. I decided to root it but there's no way, believe me I've spent a lot of time on it. No driver available (or at least nothing works). I need to roll it back to jelly bean, then I should be able to get the correct driver and root it. So here's the 64 thousand dollar question: How can I take a device that's already been updated to kit kat and install jelly bean on it?

General :: Nexus 7 Running 4.3 - Why Does Installing Apps Increase Used RAM

Oct 21, 2013

I've have a Nexus 7 2012 running 4.3. On a clean install, the running apps tab in the settings showed Used RAM equal to 450 MB.

After installing some apps, now the Used RAM shows to be 560 MB. I haven't installed apps that throw push ads or run background processes. I do have some free apps that show ads though.

I tried to stop cached processes an d running processes, bur that increased the RAM use. Even app ops doesn't list all my apps. Is there any way I can reduce this RAM usage?

General :: Galaxy Nexus Sound Completely Gone After Installing Go Launcher Ex

Mar 1, 2013

After testing/installing the popular "GO Launcher EX" my sound is completely gone. Of course I uninstalled that GO Launcher EX asap but it didn't work.

My problems:
- No sound during music, media, alarm etc while the sound volume bars all are maxed
- Every few seconds or when I press something usually a weird "tik tik" sound, it feels like the sound hardware has died or something
- When playing music you hear very low sound like "ZzzZZzzZzzz" like the hardware is not working or sound is not coming out

I tried factory reset and other ROMS but all failed so far

Phone: Galaxy Nexus
Build (old when the problem occured): AOPK 4.1.2

General :: Rooted Nexus 7 WiFi (2012) Won't Boot After Attempted Kitkat 4.4 Update

Nov 27, 2013

I am trying to get a friends Nexus 7 up and running. I recently rooted it and installed the custom recovery using my Mac with this guide while the tablet was on 4.3. All was well, but then my friend was given the option to install the 4.4 Kitkat update. After the update, the tablet has been unable to boot - it simply hangs at the startup animation. I am able to enter the recovery boot loader, and enter options to restore from a .zip, however I have no way of accessing the tablet's memory from my computer to put the original operating system back on it- although I think it could be done from Terminal, I am not well versed in command prompts.

KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 4 Messaging App

Nov 24, 2013

My Nexus 4 was just upgraded to the android Kit Kat version via OTA. However, I am having problems with the stock messaging app. No matter what app I choose as the default messaging app Textra or ChompSMS, the pop-up notification for the stock messaging app always shows up, despite the fact that I have already turned the notification off on the stock messaging app. This means I am getting two pop-ups each time I get a text message.

KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 4 - Suddenly Can't Open WAV And MP3

Feb 19, 2014

I'm suddenly having trouble opening up audio attachments/files. Running a Nexus 4 - OS 4.4.2. I get my work voicemail as e-mail attachments in .wav format. Up until today I was able to just tap on the attachment, and it would download and start playing. Now it says "No app can open this attachment for viewing". If I go into the Downloads and try to open it up, it says, "Can't open file". Same if I try and open up a mp3 that's in Downloads. However, opening a PDF or Excel file from Downloads or straight from email works just fine. If I go into the music player I can open up the .wav and .mp3 files from Downloads just fine.

I tried restarting a few times, and also tried clearing the app cache with no luck. What should I try next?

KitKat 4.4 :: How To Take Screenshots While Connecting Nexus 7 And PC Via USB

Dec 13, 2013

my environments:
Nexus 7 (2013) - Android 4.4.2 - Language Japanese
PC - Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

While connecting Nexus 7 and PC (Windows) via USB cable, after taking a screenshot on Nexus 7 (using Power + VolumeDown), a png-file of Screenshot is saved, but its file-size is zero (of course, png graphics is not shown).

Once USB cable is unplugged, the png-file gets correct file-size, and png graphics is visible.

I hope taking screenshots while connecting Nexus and PC.

KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 4 - Reverting Back To 4.3?

Dec 2, 2013

Some issues are correctable through doing a factory wipe. Other issues can be corrected through reloading the image from Google's own factory image repository. However, some things (in particular the battery drain issue) seems to be an issue within 4.4 itself, and the only solution I've found has been to revert from 4.4 to 4.3.

So I'm posting this thread and asking the more knowledgeable users here on AndroidForums to post clear, concise directions for acquiring and flashing these devices back to the Google "factory image".

The reason I'm asking for the community to pitch in is that the instructions I've seen are kind of scattered, are not necessarily up to date, and they can and do vary depending on whether you're doing this with Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, or with Mac OS X, or with Linux.

I was able to re-flash my Nexus 4 in Lion back to 4.3, but I had to do editing of bash shell scripts and even then had to issue the execution of the appropriate shell script from the exact right spot or else it couldn't find the command, or couldn't execute the command. The directions on Google's site were incomplete, and the ones I found on various message boards seemed more like an author's "best guess" than authoritative "you can trust that this will work" workflows.

KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 4 Unhiding Hidden Apps?

Mar 12, 2014

I downloaded the app FVD and was asked if I wanted to hide this app in the app drawer. I clicked yes and now cannot access the app. I see it under settings/app/downloaded/ or all, but can't launch it. How do access it after its hidden? I have read threads on this subject but it seems like it does not apply to my phone seeing how I do not have a menu key to click once in the apps drawer.

Since my Nexus 7 updated to 4.4 I have noticed that whatever I am watching on Netflix (for example) instead of creating a small square on the lockscreen with play/pause (like in 4.3) now fills the entire screen, looks distorted and the play/pause does not always display properly.

KitKat 4.4 :: Nexus 5 - Gmail Sync Will Not Stay On

Apr 7, 2014

I've gone into settings on my Nexus 5, and everything is checked right. Auto sync is on under data usage, and under the Google account. I've tried deleting and re-adding them etc.

Been googling this all day and none of the answers I've found have worked.

Every time I open Gmail, at the top it says "account sync is turned off"

How do I get it to stay on? Or is this a glitch I'm just gonna have to get used to/wait for a fix.
