What issues with moving apps to SD card have been dealt with?




Doze mode is automatic. Simply leave your tablet with the screen off without moving it for a period and it will automatically enter doze mode.

Can anyone confirm if it's safe to update yet? No wifi destroying bugs, no battery usage through the roof, etc?

Okay, I cannot install this update. I am rooted and I have a TWRP recovery. Every other OTA update has worked fine except this one. Any tips, or should I flash back to stock?

- Android 6.0+ OTAs requires an untempered /sys partition, guys. Unrooting and flashing stock recovery wont suffice! = your sys partition will still have been tempered with! The only way to take OTAs is to flash the whole img back. (EDIT: flashing the /sys partition should be enough, but thats still a lot a flashing around) (Or use systemless root, but that's another story.) Update was successful here; new buttons placement is a bit weird, but I guess we'll get used to it..

[/quote]Actually this update fixed the WiFi issues I used to have, and I don't get the miscellaneous consuming my battery anymore. I really hope it stays like this because I've been looking for a fix to these problems for a month now

New buttons placement are actually awesome, I love them. Only reason they seem bad is because people always hate to change their routines and things they are accustomed to but the new placement actually makes more sense. And besides it's an Android change not an Nvidia one so if you really hate it that much and refuse to get used to what is new then it is probably best to go talk to Google about it.

Running great so far. Installed without a hitch on stock recovery. I had systemless root on 1.1 and now again on 1.2. Makes OTA installs a snap. :)

On a side note, I trust many [s]crybabies[/s] users will be happy to learn they got rid of the "Miscellaneous battery reading bug". (Even though most will probably find something else to complain with) I'm pretty darn sure it really was only a battery reading bug than actual battery drain, but in any case, you shouldnt see it ever again.

After updating to 1.2 there is a black line running through the bottom third of the tablet. How can I fix this?

I always roll back to full stock of the last version before taking the OTA. But that's just me.

Seems OK for me. Battery seems to be fixed though I'm still connected via WiFi and airplane mode is on.
