Have the 2012 model of the Nexus 7? Then go ahead and install the latest version of Android. On the Android Developers site, Google posted the Android 5.0.2 factory image for people that like doing things themselves. The factory image posted, though, is only for the WiFi variant (“nakasi”) and Google has yet to post any Lollipop factory images for the mobile data-enabled variant (“nakasig”). The Android 5.0.2 factory image is build LRX22G.

New to the whole process of installing a factory image? We put together guide with plenty of details so you can do it easily.

Android 5.0.2 LRX22G Factory Image for Nexus 7 (WiFi) Randomly Shows Up

Posted by Kellex December - 19 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Don’t bother getting comfortable with Android 5.0.1. Google just posted a factory image of Android 5.0.2 (LRX22G) for the Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi (“nakasi”).  Yep, they did.

This should mean that an OTA update is on the way for this device, but it could also mean that the rest of the Nexus family could see a jump to 5.0.2 as well. As always, we will be on the lookout for OTA .zips and will pass those along as they come in.

Download: Android 5.0.1 OTA Updates for Nexus Devices (Updated: Nexus 5)

Posted by Kellex December - 15 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

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 this afternoon for a handful of 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.

Deal: Nexus 7 (2013) 32GB for $185 on eBay

Posted by Kellex December - 10 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

Now that Google has stopped selling (and listing) the Nexus 7 (2013) through Google Play, we are seeing the device show up far less frequently in deal sections across the web. For a time, you could find a deal on Google’s last 7-incher on the daily at sites like eBay, but those times are no longer upon us. So, when we saw the device show up today in a listing as “manufacturer refurbished” and with 32GB of storage, we wanted to share.

This may be one of the last sales for the Nexus 7. At this point, after the dozens of fire sales on them, I can’t imagine there are many left. If you need one final X-mas present or need a solid tablet for yourself, you may want to hop on this.

Deal: Groupon Hosting Deal on Nexus 7 16GB (2013), Priced at Just $149.99

Posted by Tim-o-tato December - 4 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Groupon is hosting a deal on the Nexus 7 (2013) tablet, specifically the 16GB WiFi-only model. Priced at just $149.99, this is a pretty great deal for a new Nexus tablet, and just to clarify, this is not refurbished. 

With a 7″ Full HD display, Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, update for Lollipop available, and 5MP rear-facing camera, there is no tablet on the market at the same price point that can top it.

Considering our very own Kyle thinks the Nexus 7 (2013) is a great holiday gift idea, then you can’t go wrong with this deal.

Get on it.

Cheers Asad!

Android 5.0.1 OTA for 2013 Nexus 7 (WiFi), Nexus 10 are here

Posted by wicked December - 4 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Google pushed, rather silently if not for a few keen observers, a minor update to Android Lollipop yesterday. While details on the nature of this update is still unknown, factory images for Android 5.0.1 are already available for Nexus tablets and for those who feel a bit more adventurous. But for those who are caught in between waiting for the OTA update, there is an option available to them now that the update files are available to the public.

Unlike a factory image, an OTA update is applied on top of an existing system, so it doesn’t involve a complete wipe of your device. However, it still does require a bit of know-how, especially familiarity with the ADB tool. The process is straightforward and yet still nerve-wracking especially for the uninitiated. Using ADB, one need to reboot the device into bootloader first, hit the recovery option, and then choose to “apply update from ADB”. Then from your computer’s command line, you use the command

adb sideload [filename].zip

to start the actual update process.

The links below provide the OTA zip files for the WiFi only 2013 Nexus 7 (razor) and the Nexus 10 (mantaray). No OTA for the Nexus 9 yet.

Nexus 7 2013 (WiFi)
Nexus 10

The files comes from Google’s servers so you are more or less assured of their authenticity (barring any download corruption). Of course, given the procedures involved, it might be wiser to wait a while for the OTA to land, especially considering it’s likely to be a very minor update. Still, if you want it here and now, at least you have the option.

google_nexus_9_screensIf you own a Nexus tablet, you might want to check out Google’s latest factory image page.

Posted by Kellex December - 3 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

Don’t be surprised if an update to Android 5.0.1 shows up on your Nexus device in the near future. Google seems to have just pushed it to AOSP as Android 5.0.1_r1, which is also known as build LRX22C. 

Before updates, we would imagine that factory images will become available.

We will try to update this post as we know more about it.

Update:  And just like that, Android 5.0.1 factory images have gone live for a handful of devices, including the Nexus 9, Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi, and Nexus 10. Basically, we are looking at the WiFi devices.  You can grab individual image files here.
