Learn how to revitalize your Nexus 10

Increase your storage capacity

As you know, the Nexus 10 is available in two versions of 16 and 32 GB of storage, but surely with a couple of movies and the installation of several applications, you have covered the quota. What can we do to get more free space for our needs? The first option would be to use any cloud service like Dropbox or Google Drive, keeping our files safe but not stored locally, something that we can also do with music thanks to Spotify or Google Play Music.

However, many prefer not to use the internet as a hard drive, so the best option for them would be to use some type of flash device or even an external hard drive. To connect them to our Nexus 10 we will need an OTG cable and an application called Nexus Media Importer (in the case that we are root, it works with stickMount). Once we have any of these installed, we can use a conventional “storage” in the device without any problem.

Keyboards help … a lot

One of the most pleasant things that we can find in tablets is that they are practically the same as a laptop but in a reduced version. They have even begun to replace them at university or at work thanks to the need for mobility of users. However, one of the main differences with his older brothers is the physical keyboard, an accessory that greatly facilitates the task of writing emails or taking notes. In short, something irreplaceable if we have a virtual one.

When it comes to the Nexus 10, we have several options available. For example, if we don’t want cables, we can make use of a Bluetooth keyboard, although if we prefer to connect a cable (specifically a USB OTG) you can opt for a wired keyboard. Perhaps the most practical solution is to buy a cover that, in addition to protecting the device, integrates a keyboard.

Root

In the event that you haven’t rooted your Nexus 10 yet, you should know that you are missing out on a world of possibilities. From installing specific root applications to flashing custom ROMs. The truth is that there are different ways to get root access on this tablet, but the easiest and most direct is perhaps the one offered by Nexus Root Toolkit, a series of tools developed by XDA that will allow us to unlock and root the device in just a few clicks since they are in charge of downloading the files that are needed for the process, carrying out the process and even installing a custom recovery.

If you are interested – which you should – you have all the information in the corresponding XDA forum.

Access flash content

The last option that will allow us to enjoy a revitalized Nexus 10 would be to enable the use of Adobe Flash so that we can begin to see audiovisual content on the web. In _ we have a tutorial in which, if you have Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and the Dolphin Browser, you can do it in a very simple way.

As you can see, the Nexus 10 still has a lot of life ahead of it, so don’t waste it. If you want more tricks, you just have to go through our dedicated section.
