I have a D2+ Boa and I just got it to work. No issues, just flashed the kernel and rebooted with the DAC attached. Now to figure out how to get this working for my One X...

This is a very useful post. I've been doing a lot of research on how to get this working and also be able to charge a tablet and use a OTG USB DAC at the same time.

 

My plan is to use this for a tablet in my car. Right now I currently have an Alpine w910 head unit which has a burr brown DAC. I believe it has RCA outputs for front/back/subwoofer. What would be a good DAC to pair with a tablet for this type of situation? I'd preferably want to not take a step back in audio quality (and maybe even take a step forward).

 

 

Thanks,

bru

Does anyone know a way to enable this on the new Nexus 7 4.2 update yet?

Not a Nexus 7 guy, but I am sure you can grab a 4.1.2 custom ROM and stick the mentioned kernel on top of that.  Pretty easy to do: download the ROM and flash it just like the guide says to install the kernel. Then install the kernel just like the guide tells you to.  Should work like a charm.  The kernel most likely will still work with 4.2 but I would check around before making that assumption or you may end up bricking your new toy...

Unless someone has a better suggestion, this is going to be my Christmas gift to myself and I'll ask a DAC dt880smile.png.  Or maybe I could ask for both haha.

 

Some 4.1.2 ROM's:

OK, will do once I get a USB DAC, don't have one yet, and it will probably be a while, as the Nexus was my Christmas present.

I am pretty sure that's what I am getting.  After Christmas I will pick up a DAC, cable, and most likely a USB hub so I can play files off my 1 TB WD portable drive.  Or maybe I have no idea.  Family is really riding me for a list and I haven't found anything that I really want.  Pretty much anything I have shown interest in is way too expensive (maybe after I finish college biggrin.gif).

 Nexus 7 has upgraded to Android 4.2.1. When rooted (see first post), install the Faux kernel (v.0.12b11), and it works like a charm with Fiio E17. But you have to put in the usb wire before you start the N7.

I hadn't heard that. Got Any links? I know ASUS plans on releasing a slightly cheaper 7" that will be quite similar to the Nexus 7, for $150:

Great, thanks. This is really cool. The Nexus 7 just keeps getting better. I paid $250 for the 16GB at the initial release and its oh so worth that price. But $150 or $99.... wow. No one should not have a Nexus 7. :D
