DIY mod for hard-to-press Nexus 9 buttons now available

Posted by wicked January - 27 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

We’ll be honest: We love the HTC Nexus 9. We’ve raved about it before — how sleek and elegant it looks, about its 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor with dual Denver cores running at 2.3GHz, and that vibrant 8.9-inch display (2048×1536 pixel resolution). Now if only those really iffy volume and power buttons would have an easy fix. It turns out, there might just be hope for us and the rest of the tablet world who use Google’s premier tablet.

Users of the Nexus 9—specifically the early versions—have complained of difficulties with the volume and power rockers on this otherwise impressive device, noting that these buttons were quite hard to press and provided hardly any feedback to work with. Up until now, the solution had been to buy a later release of the Nexus 9, where the problem apparently had been corrected by HTC.

Thanks to XDA member “lfrst05″, there’s no more reason to dispose your early release Nexus 9 prematurely, as there is now a way to fix those troublesome buttons. The ingenious modder has noted that the volume and power rockers on his unit were not raised high enough above the surface of the body and speculated that this might have been a production error.

This DIY mod for the Nexus 9 is relatively simple, needing only a small Phillips screwdriver, a pair of tweezers, and a piece of paper—along with nerves of steel and steady hands, as, with any modification, this has the potential for disaster if you can’t figure out what you’re doing. If you really want to improve the performance of your Nexus 9 on your own, you can check out the official XDA forum thread (see source link below) for the mod and try for yourself.
