Why I built an Account Free Google tablet. Including links of what was done. Some basic criteria. No accounts created for downloading, installing or configuring except for mail accounts. No rooting. No pirated apps. Something that can be easy for a user to do including installing and updating apps. One ad supported app installed, but hope to find an alternative.

This is relevant to my interests

I've been greatly interested in tablet computing, but have been dismayed at the Google/Apple-centric environment out there.

This kind of tutorial/episode seems like an excellent way to start breaking away from that. Thanks for posting it!

Have you considered trying an alternative ROM, like Cyannogenmod? I've never done anything close to it, but I've heard it thrown around as an option...

Thanks for the first episode, here's hoping it's not your last!

Thank You.

I have been planning to set up my Nexus 7 is a similar way. I will be rooting and using Cyanogen Mod but I will be using your guide as a template for the rest of my configuration. What are your thoughts on using Amazon's app store for commercial apps? I would like to use it to get things like Netflix and Audible and Amazon wouldn't have as much control over the entire device as Google would.

Couldn't root.

I was not allow to root when I did this. When developed, I was working as Mobile Device Manager for an international company. Rooted devices are not allowed on a corporate network. Also rooting causes issues when there are OS updates. I'm pretty sure many other people are in similar situations.
