I have never had an Android device before so pretty much everything is new to me at this point. I will be writing a bunch of articles regarding the basics of Android and more specifically the basics of Android 4.2 on a Google Nexus 7. In the process of working to root the Nexus 7 I needed to backup everything on the Nexus 7 device including everything that has been configured to date. I also have taken a bunch of screenshots that I wanted to make sure got backed up before I proceed with rooting it. Backing up the Google Nexus 7 is easy but there are a couple steps to make sure you get everything which I have outlined below.
I just started getting a little time to play around with my new Google Nexus 7 32GB tablet and so far I am loving it. It will be the first Android device that I have spent much time on so its pretty exciting! I love the size of the Nexus 7 because it still fits in my pocket and will be perfect to read or watch movies while flying around the country. Obviously the first thing I wanted to do was root the Nexus 7 so I could have full control of it but the Developer Options setting was missing from my Android 4.2.1 Settings screen. Below I show an image of my default Android Settings screen and explain how to display the Developer Options menu item in Settings.
Earlier while trying to SSH to a device from a Terminal windows on my Macbook Pro running OSX version 10.8, also known as Mountain Lion, I received an error when attempting to connect to a 64 Bit Windows 7 Professional server. The error in the Mac Terminal window stated that the terminal failed to initialize. After troubleshooting I realized that the Windows 7 Pro server, which is running WinSSHD as an SSH server, didn’t like the default terminal emulation that the Terminal window, which is xterm-color256, in OSX Mountain Lion uses. Below we describe the error message in more detail and how to resolve this issue within the Terminal window itself or by installing iTerm2.
I was going through and cleaning up some plugin settings recently on a WordPress site and received an error when attempting to access Feed Comments Number admin settings page. The error states that you do not have sufficient permissions to access the page though that was not the case because I was logged in as an administrator. Luckily I had run into this exact error awhile back and knew exactly where the problem was. Below I describe the error in more detail and provide resolution to the issue.
I updated my iPhone to iOS Beta 6 a couple weeks back and ever since I have not been receiving visual voicemail notifications. Initially I thought people were just not leaving me voicemails but once I finally called into voicemail by holding the number one on my iPhone keypad to check voicemail I realized I had 25 voicemails. Once they were all cleared out I moved on the trying to fix the visual voicemail issue which turns out is really easy to resolve by following the below steps.
