The SM-T230NU (Tab4 7.0) is a regional model, for North America (US/Canada). I can confirm it DOES have an IR 'port', whereas the SM-T330 (Tab4 8.0) does NOT. I have yet to examine an international model SM-T230 (Tab4 7.0).

comment Force Android to display in grayscale
Do you have any support material / resources that describe the size (audience) for this 'feature'' requirement? This could be raised to Google/Android or Samsung (etc.)

comment Will Nexus 5 be allowed to update to Android L?
Agree. The Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013), and (still pending) Nexus 9 are all Google/Android dev. platforms. They will receive any new releases soon after it is released (along with a new platform/device).

comment take Nexus 7 from android 4.3 to 4.2.2
Did you try with 4.4.2 (KitKat+). I have had no issues with my Nexus 7 (2013). Can you provide more details of what you are actually trying to achieve? (not just use USB-OTG)

The Nexus-7 (2013) 'razor' was released with 4.3 (JSS15Q). There is no official 4.2 or earlier versions.
