    Hi:

    In the last week, I've cleaned up the guide and added some more content such as Url to PDF, a dictionary for FB Reader, more links and much more. Done for the time-being.

    A few considerations to add to your guide if you are not aware. Both Opera Beta and Opera mobile are incompatible with the tf300 and possibly other models when you try to download them from the play store. Secondly, Airplane Mode by DON will not work on any device running Android 4.2 as the API has been disabled for airplane mode in the latest version

    Hi:

    As of a week ago, Opera Beta and Opera Browser, which replaced Opera Mobile, were not compatible with the Prime, Infinity, Nexus 7 and presumably the TF300. You might have expected an acknowledgement of the problem but several days ago the incompatibility problems were resolved without any announcement of its resolution I think if you check, you will find you can once again download Opera Beta and Browser. Opera Mobile 12.1 has been re-released as Opera Mobile Classic. The Opera Team seems to be taking us on a wild, erratic ride sans communication.

    Thanks. I will make a note of Auto Airplane Mode's incompatibility with 4.2x tonight.

    Best,

    Tom

    Hi Gtanner,
    I have a tf700 running Android 4.2.1, and it has DON airplane mode presently running. The airplane shows at the bottom of the screen near the time, and when you click on it it says that auto airplane is presently running.

    I just checked both of the redesigned opera browsers on my tablet and through the play store on my computer. They are listed as incompatible with my tf300 I may send them an email to find out. in regards to autairplane mode I checked to confirm my statement and found various references to the airplane mode API being discontinued in 4.2 the app appears to work when installed but will not actually do anything. There are some alternative apps that state that you can use them with root access only in 4.2.

    Hi again Gtanner,
    All I can say is that auto airplane seems to be running and WORKING for me, at least for the reason that I obtained the app. Before having the app, my tf700 would discharge the batteries when put to sleep. It does not do that now. I was just last week on a trip in which I did not use the tf700 for several days both going and coming back. The tf700 held 100% charge both times (held the charges for over 18 hours each time) with the tf700 in simple sleep mode. It would never have done that before installing the auto airplane app.

    Hi:

    Good luck on the email. Opera doesn't accept email. There's an email address on the Play Store but it just results in a canned response. I already had Opera Beta installed when Google declared it was incompatible with the Nexus 7. If you really want it, I can send you the apk. You're probably better off with Opera Mobile Classic with real bookmarks for the time being. Opera Beta and Opera Browser users can count on erratic upgrades like the one that wiped out all of my Speeddial/Bookmarks on al of my devices.
