u will have to replace the screen if only the glass is broken and all controls work beneath the glass.

Changing the screen is an option!
The new screen costs 10600 !! yes more than the cost of the tablet itself !! so that is out of question for me.

Re: Glass of My Nexus 7 BROKE. What to Use It As?

That's surprising. I thought the Nexus 7 was more robust owing to the design. Then again, I haven't dropped mine and my sister hasn't dropped hers either.

Okay, what you can do, is add it to your TV to make it a "Smart TV". A MHL adapter, the respective cable ( and power source might be necessary ) and a bluetooth keyboard and mouse and VLC or another Media player that can stream, and you have an Ultra low power HTPC for your TV.

The way I see it, the ONLY inconvenience would be turning it on. But BTing the rest will seem feasible. There's a youtube video testing the multitasking on the Note II in a much similar fashion where a guy hooks it up to a desktop monitor, so you can check that out as well.

I would love doing this on my own, but I'd have to change my PC setup and run my FTP server for media all the time. Also, I'm at my desktop most of the time so wouldn't exactly need a "smart tv" as such, considering I have my Note II to do the stuff I want it to.

Hope this helps, or sparks off some other ideas.

---

Also, check if the digitizer+LCD is fused to the glass. If that is the case, and the LCD isn't broken, you should be able to just replace the digitizer for a much lower amount.

You can just reset it to get out of the pattern lock. afaik it's power +volume down buttons when you restart the device.

And as the screen as you said costs 10k, you better get a new tablet and use this one as Aumkar said.

Re: Glass of My Nexus 7 BROKE. What to Use It As?

Use it as an HTPC / Media Player for your HDTV! I use an Android dongle just for this purpose.
Just attach its hdmi out to your tv, install xbmc for android and use it remote app on another android device like your mobile to control it. There is also DroidMote app which you can use as a remote control or you can buy an air mouse.

Else, you can use it as a webserver by using the servers ultimate pro app (even I use ftp and ssh on my Android dongle)

Do a factory reset in clockwork recovery to get out of pattern lock

You could sell it as well. People buy broken screen devices to salvage it for parts. I wouldn't expect to get a decent amount for it.
