    I have just purchased a Nexus 7 (2013) and it auto updated to android to 4.3 as I was setting up. Unfortunately USB OTG now does not run. I purchased the Nexus 7 for it's OTG feature. I've done a factory reset but it still loads 4.3 Is there any way I can go back to 4.2.2 - which does support OTG on the Nexus 7

    Nexus 7 not visible on PC after upgrade to 4.2.2 June 2013
  • Deb Wilson

    I've looked at the other posts on this topic, but my problem is that I cannot get the Nexus 7 to be seen at all by the Win7 OS.

    I've tried

    • 3 cables
    • switching between MTP and PTP
    • turning on Developer mode
    • enabling and then disabling USB Debugging
    • attempting to upgrade the USB driver using Asus' latest patch,

    and nothing I have tried has it showing up in either Computer>Manage>Device Manager or Devices and Printers or as a file system on the file tree.

    Thus all replies about uninstalling the drivers etc don't work as my Nexus 7 is not visible as a device.

    I also went to Asus and downloaded the latest driver patch for Nexus 7 but Win7 says this is not a valid driver for 64 bit o/s when I try to update the 'Generic USB Hub' which is all I can see in Device Manager.

    At wits end!! It was fine in May 21 when I last transferred files, but I uograded to 4.2.2 when overseas and now that I am back home it no longer works.

    Any help very much appreciated!!
