It will void the warranty if its related to software. If you get something like a broke button or dead pixels you will still be fine. the problem with operating it while its stock you can't haven't it automatically go to sleep and wake up on power states. This is fine if you do a setup that you can remove the tablet but if you do a more permanent install it will be a pain. You could try to add and external button for power but i didn't want to open up the tablet to try it.

I went ahead and upgraded to the 5.02 as i wanted to play with the new android version. with that i am running his V3 Beta for it. So far it is working well

I plan on getting a software defined usb radio for it as soon as i get my steering wheel controls working. my module for that should be here Friday. But i plan on just storing music on it or on a thumb drive for when i am out of range for music.

as far as rooting and installing his packages, if you get read up on the process and are carefull you won't have a problem. As long as you get a recovering installed and working before you mess with the operating system you can always find the factory version online. Because the nexus was meant to be more open they host all of the factory images online for easy access so you can always revert back if you have a problems.

I only figured to wait a week or so for the software. I've watched one YouTube video on rooting; I'm going to read up on it a bit more before I dive in...

Rooted and donation sent to Timur.

Yes, Dieselman, I'm impressed with it.

The nexus line is really good. I use a Nexus 4 phone and a Nexus 9 tablet. Never thought to put one in my dash though. Very neat writeup.

SuchTrk, I hope your project is progressing satisfactorily. So far I've obtained:
and

The N7 is rooted and Temur's Kernel is installed; everything seems to be running fine.

A couple of confusing things:
1. The replacement 90* micro USB cable isn't listed as an OTG cable, but it seems to be doing the job.

2. The description on Amazon for the "Y" cable specifically states that it won't charge the tablet, but it is. ???


I connected the OTG "Y" cable in line with the standard N7 charger while watching the Power Event Manager. I enabled F1 mode, fast charging, and firm sleep. Show suspend screen... And show wake up toast were enabled by default.

External power and charging battery indicated correctly when the power cable was plugged into the female micro USB. The tablet shut down and came back to life when power was disconnected and reconnected.

Where did you find the 12V switched that stays hot while the key is in the "start" position? It doesn't appear that the 12V switched to the stock radio does.

Looks good but I wanted to do other things with the BT. Keeping the factory radio and just installing the tablet on top is easyer but streaming music on BT takes a lot of bandwidth. So I desided to pull the factory stereo completely. This way I can use the BT for torque and a radar detector and not worry about music skipping.
