Use the Nexus 10 to simulate almost any Android device while testing your app


Sunday 13th of January 2013 / androidcentral.com
We've all heard the stories that say it's impossible to develop for Android because of all the different possible screen sizes and resolutions. The flip side is that the way Android development is done, most of the time that doesn't really matter. I'm able to string together an Android application, but I'm no serious app developer, so I'm guessing the reality lies somewhere in the middle -- having a selection of screen sizes and resolutions to test on can;t be a bad thing.If you have a Nexus 10, none of this matters. Using a tool first developed in 2011, you can use your Nexus 10 to simulate almost any Android environment. Because the N10 screen is so high resolution and has such a high pixel density you can emulate the different sizes and ppi right on the tablet with a few handy commands --"adb shell am display-size" and "adb shell am display-density".Using those two commands while the screen is off will let the attached device emulate the chosen parameters when the screen is turned back on.

Galaxy Nexus owners who have a hard time updating their phones to the latest Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean through OTA updates, or even through a pre-rooted (de)odexed ROM based on the OTA updates, will never have to worry about anything ever again as Google has already posted the official stock Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean factory images for the Galaxy Nexus and other Nexus devices.

What Happens to a Rooted Nexus 10 When Jelly Bean 4.3 Comes Out??


Friday 26th of July 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I have a rooted Nexus 10 with Jelly Bean 4.2.2. I take it if I upgrade to 4.3 my tablet will no longer be rooted. If that is true, then how do I keep it from automatically updating? Obviously if you have Wi-Fi off will stop it, but then you need Wi-Fi to....well use your tablet and update apps. What should be done then? Thanks in advance!

How to root and install Android 4.4 on a rooted Nexus 10 Using Android 4.2.2....


Thursday 28th of November 2013 / androidforums.com
Hi, I currently have a Nexus 10 that is already rooted to Android 4.2.2 using a TRWP custom ROM. Now I want to upgrade to Android 4.4. I don't have the info I used to root it to 4.2.2 and installed the custom ROM. I need a detailed instruction list so I don't brick this puppy. I went here to try to do it: Root Nexus 10 on Android 4.4 KRT16S KitKat and Install CWM/TWRP Recovery [How to] - IBTimes UK , but when I tried to run the fastboot recovery, I received an error stating that fastboot wasn't an external program or command or something on those lines. So I decided to stop and ask for help before I brick it.I don't have to use TRWP again for the custom ROM, just something that works and is liked. I just need to download Android 4.4 and install it and a new ROM if that's what's needed. Thanks in advance!

Mirror Android to Chromecast With a Rooted Nexus 5 Thanks to Koush


Thursday 06th of March 2014 / droidforums.net
The first finalized ability to mirror Android to your TV through the Google Chromecast is now available, thanks to Koushik Dutta. There is a catch though... you have to have a rooted Nexus 5 to do it right now. Koush recently updated his mirroring beta, but it is obviously still in its early phase of development. The main reason the Nexus 5 is currently necessary is because it's supposedly the only phone which includes a hardware vp8 encoder. Here's a quote with a few more details,So far, the Mirror app lets you create a video recording of your Android device, mirror your Android screen to an Apple TV, and mirror your Android screen to Chromecast and Chrome (Nexus 5 only).
