Google Nexus 7 with Android 4.1 or 4.2?
I'm new to the Nexus 7, loved the size since I previously owned an 7" toshiba thrive. I'm thinking of buying one from Amazon, they have the 16gb Nexus 7 with Android 4.1 shipped as well as an 32gb Nexus 7 with Android 4.2 shipped. Price for both are very similar.
I have read that Nexus 7 with Android 4.1 runs very smoothly because there is Project Butter. I don't think Android 4.2 have Project butter from what I can read online.
So, which version should I get? Hard drive space capacity is not an deciding factor as I don't plan to install a lot of games on it and that I can always transfer files to my computer hard drive.
I want an Android version OS that run the smoothest and fastest, which I heard has been 4.1. While I heard people upgrading from 4.1 to 4.2 they would notice the Nexus slowed down dramatically after the upgrade.
If The Nexus 7 came with Android 4.2 installed, can I downgrade to 4.1? By unlocking the bootloader? Is unlocking the bootloader let me install whatever Android OS version I want on my tablet and able to root it later? I am new to android rooting and unlocking, hopesomeone can tell me more, thanks!
