As predicted, support for Android Lollipop is starting to collapse. The Netflix app on the Google Play store no longer works with the Hudl2. However, at the time of writing it is still possible to side load an official version of the Netflix app that Netflix themselves are supplying. I’ve tried the steps on this page and can confirm that it does work:
However, all bets are off in terms of how long it will continue to do so…
Having a bit of a clear out at the moment. Currently selling 2 x Amazon Fire 7 tablets and a Lenovo Tab A7 on ebay in one 7″ bundle:
All three tablets are in good working order and pretty good condition. They have all be upgraded to the latest firmware version available and factory reset. The Lenovo comes with it’s original box. The Fire 7’s done come with boxes as the boxes Amazon ship them in are cheap disposable one’s. Included are two micro SD cards (one 8gb and the other 32gb). USB charging plugs and cables are included.
Since launching my spare parts store, I’ve been surprised at how popular it has been. So much so in fact, that my supplies of spare parts are starting to run low in a couple of key areas. My supplies of batteries and charging boards is rapidly running out. So if you need replacements for these, please order now, while stock last!
One of my concerns about running a support site for obsolete Hudl2 tablets is that it was always going to be batteries that would ultimate become the crunch point. As they only have a finite life span, every Hudl2 owner is going to need a replacement eventually if they want to keep using their favorite tablet. Unfortunately, the laws of capitalism dictate that as supply runs low and demand ramps up, price will inevitable rise. So I can easily see a scenario in which Hudl2 batteries start selling for hundreds of pounds each on eBay. However, I remain committed to selling my spares at a reasonable price. While stock last.
Finally finished the book had it proof read by my good friend Toby Kilburn and uploaded it to Amazon KDP. Apparently it normally takes them 72 hours to approve a new book, but my one went live in less than four hours!
I’m still struggling with some formatting issues with the book. It works great on Kindles, but doesn’t look great in the Kindle app on Android and IOS. I am planning to get full colour paperback version uploaded today, if I can figure out some issues with the DPI on the images.
Anyway at long last here’s a link to my book on Amazon:
Here’s the blurb I came up with:
The Hudl 2 Visual Repair guide is designed to take someone with no experience of repairing Hudl 2 tablets through the whole process of fixing any type of hardware fault. In includes a detailed step by step tear down of the Hudl 2 as well as covering virtually every type of hardware fault and some common software based issues. Learn how to diagnose, troubleshoot faults and more importantly fix them!
After running a successfully Hudl 2 repair business, I decided to share my knowledge with the world. The book also includes advanced repair techniques and projects you can follow to make use of a broken Hudl 2 as a desktop PC, or Kodi media centre. Packed with tips and techniques, it provides everything you could possibly need to start successfully repairing Hudl 2 tablets.
Including step by step guides to:
Hudl 2 Screen Replacement
Hudl 2 Charging Board Replacement
Hudl 2 Battery Replacement
Troubleshooting Motherboard Issues
For the last few weeks I’ve had my head down using every spare minute I could find to write a Hudl 2 repairs book. This is designed to appeal to the type of person that’s not adverse to doing DIY repairs, but would rather have some guidance rather than blundering around in the dark. I’ve squeezed literally every drop of knowledge I’ve developed about Hudl2 repairs over the last 12 months into it.
Hopefully it will live on the Amazon Kindle store in a couple of weeks!
