This looks like a single two-way switch. Uhm, does it work? If so, you should probably sell these. But don't forget my commission :money:

How did you connect the volume buttons? More info, please...

Uhm... that's a very good point. Can't just someone connect the N7 to the PC using the OTG cable female and a male-male adapter?


No, you cant, because in OTG cable wires Ground & Sensed are short.

@Timur, its more easier than i thought :
- pull the back cover (no screws).
- Disconnect the battery plug. (gently...)
- Dont unplug the ribbon cable ,its really not necessary!!
- Its hard to expalin but separate the white label that hold the pop buttons from the ribbon cable.
- just solder the wires directly to the ribbon (two wires for each switch).
- now, you can use plugs (like i did) or whatever you like.

Sorry for my english, i hope it was clear, anyway you can see this install also:

Uh... I always thought it would be possible. That puts things in a whole new perspective!! :| I won't be connecting it to the PC very often (so I hope), but whenever needed, that means unmounting everything to reach the USB port on the N7. No fun...

That's what I did for my buttons, just need to have a sharp soldering iron so you don't short out the buttons like I did. I also covered my connections with hot glue so the wires wouldn't break off.

This seems the hard way to do it. I just bought a 5 wire micro USB extension cable and routed the end point to the glove box. Iintercepted the power lines near the nexus 7 end. That way I just unplug my OTG microusb to USB adapter and USB hub and plug in a standard usb cable for using a PC to update firmware etc.

Where did you get your 5 wire micro USB extension cable? I ordered one, and it turned out to be 4 wire. Thanks!

This is when the N7-to-dash movement will really start: http://www.androidau...7-sequel-151548

I wonder if it will have a Wolfson DAC this time? :angry:
