Hack the Nexus 7 to record 720p videos

Google Nexus 7 is without any doubt an amazing tablet, and it comes with a bag full of bells and whistles but still it couldn’t stop the hackers to come up with some extraordinary tweaks. If you like shooting videos with your Nexus 7, but you are not satisfied with the video quality, then you can take it up a notch. A developer known as hillbeast over at the XDA-developers forum turned the Nexus 7 into a 720p shooting tablet.

Out of the box, the Nexus 7 comes with a 480p video shooting capability, but the device supports 720p shooting at a hardware level, so why not? Hillbeast mentioned that “Google didn’t add the media profile for 720p to tell it how to use 720p”, though after installing the hack, you will be able to record 720p videos.
