virgopunk added a topic in Tesco HudlLater model Hudls?Hi,
I finally took my original Hudl back to Tesco for a replacement. The screen issue was too much to deal with finally. Have to say they were great all the way from 'Ken' at Tech Support to the staff at my local superstore. So I now have a rinky-dink new tablet which appears to NOT have any screen issues. I also noticed that the power and volume buttons are slightly bigger and stand proud of the frame (which they didn't on my original). So it seems that there are revised models. The model number is the same in the 'About this tablet' screen but I wondered if anyone else had a newer version and whether they encountered any screen issues?
So far so good though :)

virgopunk added a topic in Tesco HudlRegularly powering offHello there. I'm semi-regular reader of the forum. I wonder if anyone may have some advice on a problem that has recently started happening on my rooted Hudl? Basically the damn thing keeps powering off for not apparent reason. It doesn't do it all the time but often enough to be very annoying. It means I have reboot several times a day. As I said it's only recently started to become a real problem.
I'm using Xposed with Xblast and GravityBox and so wondered if any of the mods might be interferring. My other theory is that it's something to do with the govenor possibly? It's set to cfq and ondemand. The CPU is at max 1416Mhz and min 504Mhz.
Other than my two wobbly ideas about the cause the only other thing I can think of is a HW problem.
All advice gratefully received.

virgopunk added a topic in Tesco HudlTouchscreen Calibration appHi, haven't been here for a while but my Hudl was one of the 'dodgy' ones with screen issues. I've been getting phantom key strokes etc which has been a real pain. I was debating whether to send it back but the prospect of re-installing stock was causing me to procrastinate.
I use my tab for a lot of comic reading using Perfect Viewer and was experience continual phantom key strokes which would knock the current file on a page or call up the settings etc (all very annoying). Of course quick press of the power button would resolve the problem but only for a few minutes.
so, I thought I'd do some trawling to see if there was any possibility of fixing the issue through a software fix. I've seen some discussion of tweaking the build.prop etc but I chanced up on this thread on XDA and decided to give the apk a go.
It's still early days but so far (touch wood) I haven't experienced any issues. I'd be very interested to hear of anyone else's experiences trying this little calibration app. I'll also come back and update the post if it hasn't worked (I'm expecting it not to just because so much of the evidence suggests a deeper lying reason for the issues). I'm hoping that a KitKat firmware update might resolve the problem but obviously we don't have any firm date for that as yet
Still, as long as it's not harmful I think it's worth exploring every option.

virgopunk added a topic in Tesco HudlJust how similar is the Hudl to the NexusI've heard it said that the Hudl is quite similar (from a component pov) to the Nexus 7 (even down to the screen problems!). Is it conceivable that there could be some bleed over from a ROM dev perspective?
I know I'm probably being a wonk but I just wondered whether some of the work done on improving the Nexus 7's screen would work for the Hudl.

virgopunk added a topic in Tesco HudlHudl thoughtsHi all,
I've just joined MoDaCo since it seems the only place there's a proper Hudl discussion forum. I'm a regular XDA reader and having been flashing custom roms on my Galaxy Note for over a year.
I picked my new Hudl up yesterday and rooted it via Kingo with no problems.
What I'm wondering at the moment is:
1. Is it possible to get CWM working on this tab?
2. Anyone have any thoughts on whether its possible to colour calibrate the screen (one of the very few quibbles I have with the tab so far)
3. Does anyone know if it's possible to add a menu softkey (my other quibble)
4. Anyone have any opinions on custom ROMs for the Hudl. I'm no dev but it'd be great to have a custom CM mod for this tab. I use the CM Asylum rom on my note (may move over to the new Omni rom though) and something like that would be brilliant
Anywho, it's good to have found this forum and I hope we get more people interested in bending the Hudl to our will ;)
