The title may mislead you because I did it on purpose. The answer to this dilemna that had been hounding users for so long ever since Lollipop came out is that there is no fix to this.
Sure, some users may be lucky to be able to fix the Nexus 7 bootloop problem if they managed to get past the boot and into the recovery menu. But if you get stuck at the Google logo for all eternity? Well, I am sorry but you are out of luck.
This is also what happened to me. Nexus Root Toolkit did not do the trick. All other forum posts did not solve the problem either.
Google and Asus, whoever is at fault here have left this issue dead.
The Nexus 7 tablet for me was the best in terms of size and hardware. However, I doubt I will be buying another tablet because of this …
Overall I can sum it up to bugs and lag. I was surpised this happened. Google did not bother QA’ing the new Android operating system codenamed Lollipop in older Nexus devices?
This is one big blunder. And it has affected so many users. Worse, it greatly affected my game because it uses Thread.sleep in some cases and it now moves like a roller instead of smooth movements.
So here are some things that I noticed with Lollipop which I think is not advisable to be upgraded until Google provides a lightning quick fix.
WIFI – I noticed it takes some time to connect to WIFI hotspots. I also get cut off sometimes.
System lag – when I go to apps, I noticed slowdown and lagtime during transitions. I feel like my Nexus 7 2013 feels like a 2005 version. Hell, my card game might get bad reviews from ignorant users who think the animation in my app is slow is due to the developer when in fact, Lollipop is to blame
New apps – while this may not be a bad thing, I find no use for apps like Sheets and Slides so why are they sync enabled in the Google account by default?!?!
UI – come on! User interface overhaul? Sure, some are good but seriously, a little consistency at least. Plus the WIFI icon looks fugly. Keyboard is meh but I guess I can live with it.
Chrome loading icon – it looks funny but when you have a slow connection and you opened up a lot of tabs to load webpages, you may notice one of the tabs’ circle progress loading icon move itself in and out of the tab area.
These are the few things that git me peeved with Lollipop and even though this is a new version, I wish there is an easy way to revert back to Kitkat.
And no, I do not want to reset my tablet just to see if thinga will be different. So this blunder is really on Google.
