Oh Look, A Brick

My Nexus 7 is not a happy bunny.  It won't even boot in recovery mode.

Also, either my network switch, or my LaCie NAS - or both - are playing up.

Fun.

Update: Found the super-double-extra-secret Android factory reset menu, and Android factory resetted it.  It's working again!  Now all I need to do is reload 300 apps and 600 books.  Interestingly, it reset to Jellybean 4.2.1, not the 4.1.0 that it originally shipped with.

My saved games are gone, but I wasn't in the middle of anything, so no great drama there.  Well, my capital city in Triple Town is toast, but okay.  I still need to see if the Kindle app restores the magazines I'd downloaded or if they've expired; I was wondering what would happen if I got a new tablet, and now I get to find out without even having to spend $299 first.

Update Twi: Yep, magazines are good, but it looks like it wants me to download all 600 books again one by bleedin' one.  The Android Kindle app leaves a certain amount to be desired.

1 Actual Kindles aren't much better for reloading a library. I crashed my Paperwhite the day it arrived by rapidly queueing up multiple downloads.

2 When I got my Fire HD, it handled the reload just fine. (Of course, my library isn't as huge as Pixy's.)

3 I really pity Pixy these days, about the latest spammer. Working on the site must be like working in a cloud of mosquitos.

4 Yes, they're beginning to get on my nerves.  Just a little.

9 Not perfect, though.  Still tweaking.
