Last week Google released factory images for the Android 5.0.2 update for the Nexus 7 2013 WiFi and the Nexus 10. The OTA update is now available for the Nexus 7, so you can manually update your device yourself.

We have the download link below, but if you aren’t sure of what you’re doing or you just need a refresher, be sure to check out our very extensive guide on how to do it. The Nexus 10 OTA is still not available, but I would expect a link to become available within the next day so stay tuned if you’re rocking a Nexus 10.

Now that Android 5.0.2 factory images have been posted for more devices (Nexus 7 2013 and Nexus 10) and over-the-air (OTA) updates are starting to rollout, it’s about time that we give you a post to bookmark that will continue to be updated. So even as the update hits the Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and other Nexus tablets or phones, we will update this post. 

Don’t forget to get the latest Android 5.0.1 updates as well, which we kept track of here. Most should be available for pulling, but the manual route is always an option.

Again, we will update this post with more. zip files from Google as they become available.

Android 5.0.2 updates:

  • Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi – [LRX22G from LRX21P, 13.1MB] – Download Link
  • Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi – [LRX22G from LRX22C, 9.8MB] – Download Link (via)
  • Nexus 10 – [LRX22G from LRX22C] – Link Incoming!

Android 5.0.2 images arrive for 2013 Nexus 7 (WiFi), Nexus 10

Posted by wicked January - 16 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

Following last month’s factory image release, Google is now bringing Android 5.0.2 to the rest of its older Nexus tablets. The maintenance update, which first appeared for the 2012 Nexus 7, is now available for the 2013 model, only for its WiFi variant, and the Nexus 10. And as before, there is no official changelog or announcement on what has been fixed in this silent Android release. Amusingly, the more recent Nexus 9 seems to have been left out, at least for now.

Google seems to have adopted a very staggered and piecemeal approach to Android releases for its Nexus line, rolling out updates as soon as they’re available for some, while leaving others for another time. The Android 5.0.2 update itself was rather interesting. It first appeared last December and only for the 2012 Nexus 7 Wi-Fi model or “nakasi”. This was the first Lollipop maintenance update that the tablet received, skipping over the Android 5.0.1 version that was made available to its other siblings.

Now its the turn of the 2013 Nexus 7 WiFi (razor) and the Nexus 10 (mantaray) to get the update. Without a changelog, we can only presume the usual bug fixes and whatnot, perhaps nothing earth-shattering or else we’ve heard about it by now.

Perhaps more interesting is where the update is not found. One would think that the Nexus 9, being the more recent tablet, would get it first, and yet it is curiously missing. None of the recent smartphones have also been updated yet. The most curious, and also the most tragic, of all is the fact that none of the mobile models of the Nexus 7, be it the 2012 or the 2013 model, have even tasted Android Lollipop, making us wonder what problems Google might have encountered for these two.

Google releases Android 5.0.2 factory images for Nexus 10 and 2013 Nexus 7

Nexus_10_TA_Back_Top_Left

Google has just posted Android 5.0.2 Lollipop factory images for the Nexus 10 and 2013 Nexus 7. Until now, the only images that were available were for the 2012 Nexus 7. The build number on today’s images is the same as last month’s LRX22G. Google hasn’t posted any change log, but we aren’t expecting big changes in the new firmware.

The images are available on Google’s developer site and should begin to rollout over-the-air soon. If you don’t want to wait, however, you can check out our guide on installing factory images here, and download the image via the source link below.

Deal: Groupon is Still Selling Brand New Nexus 7 (2013) 16GBs for $149

Posted by Kellex January - 14 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

I can’t believe this deal is continuing to be available over at Groupon. Google’s last 7-inch tablet, the Nexus 7 (2013), after being featured by the deal site for almost two months, can still be picked with 16GB of storage for just $149. We are talking a brand new device, as well, not the refurbished kind that most deal sites are hawking these days. This is a unit that retailed for $229 when it was first released.

Still in search of a tablet? As odd as this may sound, the 2013 Nexus 7, even at $149, is still a heck of a deal.

groupon nexus 7 deal

Still in need of a good high-powered Android tablet, but have been waiting for the right deal? This might just be it as Groupon is offering Google’s 2nd Gen 16GB Nexus 7 made by Asus for a low price of $135 + free shipping (price shows $149.99 on the Groupon page, but apply the 10% off coupon code to get the price down to the $135 deal). While the tablet is ‘old’ by today’s standards, the 2nd gen Nexus 7 is still very much capable of handling any task you throw at it. With the device recently receiving Google’s latest Android software in Lollipop, you’ll get the latest and greatest at such a low price. If this deal interests you, check out the source link to purchase! For the unaware, here’s a quick rundown of the specs:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5GHz CPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB Internal Memory
  • 7″ 1920×1200 323ppi IPS Display w/ 1.2MP Front and 5MP Rear Camera
  • Dual Band WiFi
  • 3950mAh Battery w/ Wireless Charging Built-In
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop

Deal: Brand New Nexus 7 (2013) 16GB for $135 From Groupon

Posted by Kellex December - 29 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

Just before Christmas, we pointed out that Groupon was selling the Nexus 7 (2013) with 16GB in brand new condition for $149. If you bought it then, I apologize, because you can now grab one for $15 cheaper, thanks to a coupon code.

Somehow, Groupon hasn’t sold out of their stash of Nexus 7s after having them available for weeks at that insanely low $149 price. If this new discount does what we think it will do, they will likely sell through the rest in a matter of hours. By using coupon code “SALE10,” you can slash 10% off your order, which brings it down to $135. Oh, free shipping is also included.

If you need a tablet, this is a deal still worth jumping on.

Download: Android 5.0.1 OTA Updates for Nexus Devices (Updated: 5.0.2)

Posted by Kellex December - 24 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

Update 12/24:  Added Android 5.0.2 link for the Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi.

Update 12/15:  Added Nexus 5 link! (Cheers Dustin!)

Update 12/10:  Added Nexus 4 link. Also added Nexus 6 link.

Android 5.0.1 OTA updates are starting to pop-up for most of the Nexus devices, which isn’t all that surprising after seeing the new Android version hit AOSP yesterday with factory images shortly behind it. The first three devices to receive build LRX22C are the Nexus 9, Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi, and Nexus 10. But don’t be surprised if the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi, and Nexus 6 updates aren’t far behind them.

As is the case each time new OTA updates rollout for Nexus devices, we have started a running list of the updates that can be sideloaded, along with instructions for flashing them. We will continue to update this list as more device updates pop up. Also, as a reminder, we only provide the direct-from-Google download links, so these are as safe as can be. 

Note: We will update this post as more update zip files are made available. Continue to check back.

Android 5.0.1 updates:

Android 5.0.2 updates:

  • Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi – [LRX22G from LRX21P, 13.1MB] – Download Link

With the factory image posted for the Android 5.0.2 update for the Nexus 7 WiFi (2012) a few days ago, it’s no surprise the OTA update has been captured. This means that you can download it and manually install it instead of waiting what could be two to three weeks until you win the lottery and receive it automatically.

We have the link below, and if you’re not sure of what to do, make sure to hit up our extensive guide on how to install OTA updates to Nexus devices.
