The LTE version of the Nexus 7 2013 just started shipping to the US last week. If a week of running on a stock ROM is entirely too long for you, take heart: even while you read these words, modders and ROM developers are hard at work building all kinds…

It was just the other day when it came out that complications with Qualcomm licensing was keeping Google from posting the binaries and full factory image for the new Nexus 7 tablet.

I’ve been using Samsung’s Galaxy Note 8.0 for the past week or so, and it is hands-down one of the best tablets I’ve ever used. The form factor is great, and the S Pen adds some really useful functionality to this little beast. If you’re looking for a new tablet in a smaller-than-ten-inches form factor, I readily recommend this one.
And once you’ve decided to pull the trigger and buy one, you may want a quick and easy way to gain root access, flash a recovery, make a backup, and all that other fun stuff that so many Android users like to do.
