Forum Thread: I Get a Notification

That says "unable to update for past x days" This thing wants to upload the photos and videos I take to "somewhere". I do not want my stuff in the cloud. I think, I was tinkering someplace and said do not upload but obviously some part of this nexus 7 wants to upload.

Forum Thread: Start Here by Introducing Yourself to the Community

I have been trolling WonderHowTo for the past 3 years (actually since I began to root Android and jailbreak iOS smartphones, that is, if you actually consider Apple products to be "smart."). Anyway, I started this forum (and the Samsung Galaxy S3 Forum) because I actually bricked a few devices - which, as you can imagine, really screwed up my day - and wanted a place in which we could share lessons learned (or whatever).

Forum Thread: Trick my Nexus 7 into thinking it's in the USA.

Hello. I am new to the world of modification on any device, but I now have a Nexus 7 and have heard it is very modifiable. The biggest issue I currently have is that I live in The Netherlands but I want my Nexus 7 to think I am in the U.S. I have looked into VPN apps, but honestly find them a bit scary as they seem to get deep into the system. Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions for how to trick my Nexus 7 into thinking it is in the U.S. without having to go too extreme? Thanks!

Forum Thread: How to Enable "Unknown Sources" on Your Nexus 7 for Access to Awesome 3rd-Party Apps

Google's Play Store is packed with some great apps, but since we're the rebellious types looking to fully utilize the capabilities of our Nexus 7s, we're going to need some 3rd-party apps—apps that can't be found in the Play Store. Don't worry, it's not some sketchy way to acquire black-market apps. This function serves conventional purposes, like getting the exclusive Nexus 5 Google Launcher on your Nexus 7. By enabling Unknown sources, we can acquire device-specific apps with ease.

Forum Thread: Fix for Slow Charging Issue

So guys, it's pretty well known the Nexus 7 has a painfully slow charging time. If you're using an aftermarket charger like me, it takes AGES to get the battery to 100%. Has the new 4.2.2 update solved this issue? A custom kernel of any help?
