    Exclamation List your 4.2 bugs here

    List your verifiable bugs here. Criteria for a verifiable bug are:

    1. You can reproduce it at will.
    2. If it's intermittent, It has occurred twice in one day of use.
    3. You have a screenshot of it (or you can describe the issue explicitly). (How: hold down the PWR and VOL DOWN buttons simultaneously.)
    4. (optional) You can reproduce it on two devices (same kind, i.e. Nexus 7).


    This is not a thread to ask questions; do that in a new thread. Please just list things that don't work after the 4.2 update, or to post to confirm another person's report (or just like their post). Not sure? Ask in another thread, you can always post here when you've determined you've got a bug. Failure to abide by this will result in a request that the mod remove your post.

    Thanks!

    I'll start. Under 4.1.2 I could beam an image directly from one N7 to another. Now, under 4.2, beaming fails.

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Take a screenshot (hold down PWR and VOL DWN).
    2. Open the Gallery app (stock app).
    3. View the pic.
    4. Place the back of the N7 to another N7 or another 4.2 device which has multi-user enabled. You can be logged into either/any user on the receiving device.
    5. When beaming starts, tap the image on the sending N7.
    6. => On the receiving N7, a notificaiton coms up, "Preparing to beam...." After 30 seconds or so, the notification changes to "Beam did not complete."
    7. => Reversing the direction, i.e. beaming from a multi-user enabled device to a single-user device works fine!

    Disconnecting both from the local Wi-Fi network did ... nothing. I've tried this by placing both N7s on the table next to each other (which worked in 4.1.2), and holding their backs to each other.

    SOLVED: Having an ActiveSync ("Corporate") email account with EAS restrictions, on any user of the device, prevents receiving beaming.

    I have one that's been on for as long as I've had my tablet.
    1. Go to settings.
    2. Tap Wi-Fi
    3. Click the three dots at the top.
    4. Tap 'Advanced'.
    5. Set 'Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep' to 'never'.

    It will never listen.

    I'm having the opposite issue. I want WiFi always on and now it seems to be disconnecting in sleep. I'm chalking it up to the "conserve battery" option they added and enabled by default in the WiFi settings.

    Also, twice now, I've received a notification that I wasn't connected to Google services although a manual sync will work just fine. I think the problems are connected.

    Amazon App Store won't stay logged in for me. Every time I reboot the N7, I have to log into Amazon App Store again before I can use any apps from there.

    This happens to me too, specifically with the calendar sync.

    Amazon just updated their app to correct that issue. See if you have an update for that.

    The only problem I have is the screen flicker when set to Auto Brightness. Easy fix I turned off Auto Brightness. I have not tried NFC. Will NFC work through a case? I have not tried beaming either but I think that should work with a case.

    I have similar issue i get a "Error login the server" notification and touch "Try again" button nothing happen.
    The error notification not coming up again after i clear ALL cache related to Google. Go to settings/app/all
    and then clear all caches in the apps with the words "Google" and "gmail".

    Hope this help, good luck !

    Screen orientation lock no longer works. Screen will rotate whether in landscape or portrait. Worked fine before the 4.2 upgrade.

    screen flickering at low brightness or at auto brightness.
    how: set the brightness to auto

    launcher crashed a lot of times.
    how : 4 or 5 widgets ,Wi-Fi on, chrome and pulse in background and open a game.

    stick mount doesn't work even after the update.

    Really? Are you sure you're still rooted?

    [edit] : you might want to take a look at the recent comments on the stickmount play page... There are some suggestions for things to try to resolve the problem.

    Another possible workaround for you:

    I use an app called "Custom Auto Brightness" that allows me to customize the brightness levels at each light level, and also to adjust how quickly the screen responds to changes in brightness. I have it on my Thunderbolt because the standard auto brightness never reaches 0% nor 100% so the thing is blinding in the dark and useless in daylight. I have it on my Nexus 7 because the standard auto brightness is constantly making teeny little brightness adjustments (though it got better in 4.1.2, it got a lot worse in 4.2!) that drive me bonkers.

    Same here. I just went to Amazon's site, had them email me the latest Amazon App Store link, and installed the new version over the old one. The "Check for Updates" built in to the Amazon App Store kept telling me I was on the latest version.

    For giggles, I did the same thing on my old Thunderbolt. My 'bolt was running a 2.x release of the Amazon App Store (it's at 4.x now, so that "check for updates" has been lying to me for a long time).

    Google Music App skips/hesitates much more frequently. I just got back from vacation, driving from Idaho to San Diego, and back again. On the drive down, while still on 4.1.2, I had essentially no issues with skipping. While in San Diego, it updated to 4.2. I could hardly stand to listen to it, as it would skip/hesitate several times per song. I tried restarting, killing processes, even uninstalling apps that run processes in the background all the time. This is all while playing on-device music, streaming via bluetooth to the car stereo.

    I found that mine gets "jittery" when the battery charger is plugged in. Unplug and all is fine.

    Ive found that Google Now/Google search will slow way way down while still typing, seemingly doing a real time search lookup. I had to hard reset as nothing responded - total lockup. :banghead:

    Ongoing : deleted search history to see if that helps....

    Bluetooth audio now stutters and prone to 8-10 second blank-outs since going to 4.2. Especially with YouTube, TVPortal, etc. Seems to not be a problem with just audio streaming (Spotify, Pandora, etc.)

    WiFi NOT SO MUCH ANYMORE

    Connection is extremely erratic. I need to do a cold start in order to get connection about 80% of the time. So much for letting my N7 go into hibernate anymore. I now need to do a shutdown if I expect WiFi to work when I want to use it again. The WiFi shows connected, but you can not get out to the internet. I called Google Tech Support (15+ min wait - Uggg) and was told, "We have not heard of this issue. Would you like for me to help you do a factory re-set?" Whatever. Coming from the perspective of someone who has done front-line tech support for Windows and served as the Director of Quality for a 400 seat Tech Support Call Center I call BS on this as the first step in the troubleshooting process. This should be the last step and only after other steps are taken that are designed to preserve a customer's data and their applications are taken. Horrible from a customer service perspective. But, hey it's a great money-saver and easy on the bottom-line margins - get those techs off the phone and on to the next person ASAP, versus actually spending quality time trying to correct something. Heck, if your techs actually work on troubleshooting and take some time at it, you either A: Drive your wait times even higher or B. Have to hire more techs. Pretty obvious what Google's approach is.

    I Can't Believe It's No Longer Butter.

    SCREEN LAG - I had a Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 that I returned for the N7 that had an annoying issue that now has surfaced on the N7 since the update. It seems almost like a video horsepower issue to me. On the Tab 2 After installing quite a few apps, the screen swipe became very difficult. The screen would not advance from one to another without several attempts and the original screen would "jerk or bounce back" into position rather than the next one "taking over." Out of the box when the Tab 2 was relatively clean of additional apps, the screen swipe seemed fine. Well, now since the 4.2 update abortion from Google, my N7 is now behaving in the same manner - just like ICS and not the "Buttery Smooth" element that Google delivered in my factory version of Jelly Bean. GRRRRRR......

    GoKeyboard - Typing has become so laggy that I am going to have to remove it.

    VOLUME - Yup, mine has noticeably decreased. I have a third party app that boosts it up. I've re-adjusted it and those settings seem to be holding now.
