Since releasing Android 5.0 Lollipop, there have been many problems presented and still presents in some devices. On one hand it is normal, because it is a big update with thousands of changes, and moreover, are not too serious errors, mostly related to connectivity issues as Wi-Fi, lag, or excessive battery drain. Annoying bugs, but in no case preclude the use of the devices.
However, recent reports from some users are far more serious. Apparently some Google Nexus 7, 2013 version, manufactured by ASUS with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, have bricked, ie have been completely unusable. According to the holders thereof, only lights but that’s the logo of Google, thus leaving permanently. The exact root of the problem is unknown, but according to several comments may occur just as apps are updated in Google Play, which could be because of an update to an application or service from Google.
Already become famous in Twitter the hashtag #nexus7bricked, using those affected to explain their problem, and incidentally, citing accounts from ASUS and Google to see if they respond and offer a solution, but so far have failed to reply. Yes, some have contacted ASUS through their customer service, but this adds another problem: many of the tablets no longer have warranty in force, which ASUS is not required to provide any solution.
So, the remedy is presented complicated. Perhaps with another update, update that logically would have to be manually installed, unable to start the tablet and install the OTA is resolved. It is said that the problem is motherboard, in which case, the arrangement would have a fairly high cost, possibly above the value of the device itself. It also circulates information network that Google Nexus 5 would be equally affected, although this can not yet be confirmed.
The second generation of Nexus 7 is a tablet running the Android mobile operating system. It is the first to include version 4.3 of that system and was developed jointly by Google and Asus. Google officially announced its launch on July 25, 2013 and went on sale on July 30 of the same year.
