Just got a nexus 7 for Christmas. Setup everything, it started freezing, so I reset it. Went to go into google wallet and it gives me an error:

DEVICE NOT READY

Wallet is unable to proceed until this device is fully initialized. Make sure the phone has network access and try rebooting if the problem persists.



I looked it up and I found this:

Please tell me I'm not forked? Is there a work around? Will my warranty give me a new device? Does this mean Google Wallet is bricked totally on my Google account too (I can't use it on another device)?


Geeze, Google. I understand it's partially my fault for being ignorant of the issue, but bricking my device? Really? :angry:

Help please?

Factory reset is part of the OS so its not your fault if that killed wallet, RMA comes to mind

So how would I go about my RMA? Just call them? Says in the link their number is 1-855-836-3987. I'll give it a try.

If you just bought it, RMA to the company / shop you bought it from, explain what has happened and that its a common fault with those devices, if its faulty within 12 months there should be no issues returning it / getting it repaired

I buy from eBuyer, and RMA is done first of all by email, then once it is submitted you give them a call and finalise the RMA by phone, then arrange collection by email again

Where did you buy it from?

It's good that you contacted Google about it sayings as it is a problem with their OS and they need to address it

But if you're not using Google Wallet again, is there any reason to RMA ?

No idea. Christmas gift. The warranty is there, why not use it? I also may need it in the future.

Clearly I'm way late to the party, but just to try and alleviate any fears with the factory reset procedure - I resetted my own (rooted) Nexus 7 a couple of weeks back with no issues at all.

Just as a forewarning - while the Nexus 7 is quite possibly the best Android tablet out there (with the personal exception of the Asus Transformer series), it does suffer from a fault where it becomes rather slow once it reaches to about 2-3GB storage remaining, with the only solution being a factory reset (hence why I did it to mine :p). Either way, don't let that put you off your newly acquired tablet, as USB sticks are fully usable once it's rooted, pretty much alleviating the issue :D
