On Thursday, Jan 15th, Google released the factory images for the latest Nexus 7 (2013 edition), as well as the Nexus 10.
They both are shown with a build LRX22G, which is the same build number as the Nexus 7 (2012).
You can use these images for a fresh build of Android 5.0.2 Lollipop for your Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 10 and can be grabbed from here. For those who want to just update OTA then Google will begin issuing these shortly.

After the original Nexus 7 received in update to Android 5.0.2, we were left wondering whether any other devices would be updated to the elusive software version, or indeed, what it actually fixed. Google has today released more Android 5.0.2 factory images for the 2013 Nexus 7 Wi-Fi and Nexus 10 which leaves the Nexus 9 […]

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.

The all-new Android operating system, 5.0 Lollipop, was officially released on November 3rd and it has already been rooted. While rooting has been available for Nexus devices running Lollipop ever since the developer preview, it hasn’t been easy… until now.
XDA Senior Recognized Developer Chainfire, has already updated his famous CF-Auto-Root downloads to include an Android 5.0 root for the entire Nexus line. That means the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013), Nexus 9, and Nexus 10 devices running 5.0 can easily be rooted.
For those of you who don’t know what CF-Auto-Root is, it is essentially the go-to method for beginners who are not well-versed in rooting. You can check out the officially CF-Auto-Root page here.

If you’re the owner of a Nexus device, you’re no doubt wondering when you’re going to get your first official taste of Android L. Well, we now know that Android L will be coming to Wi-Fi Nexus devices on November 3rd, which includes the Nexus 7 2012, Nexus 7 2013 Wi-Fi and the Nexus 10. Of course, that means owners of the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013 LTE will have to wait until “later that month”, presumably due to the intricacies of making a new software update play nice with cellular functions.
This news comes via an anonymous source speaking with Android Police, but it does seem legitimate and does just about line up with previous rumours that we have heard regarding the actual release date of Android L to the general public, namely Nexus devices. Mark the date on your calendar, folks.

Google’s Nexus line has long stood as the company’s ideal vision of its widely adopted, open-source Android operating system. The devices, be they smartphones, tablets or even one-off media streamers, are built in conjunction with select hardware partners and represent an ideal marriage of tech specs with an unadulterated version of Android. It’s Google’s way of dealing with fragmentation (read: skinned versions) in the mobile OS market it created; a reference mark for manufacturers to aspire to, so to speak.
On the tail of the original Android handset’s sixth anniversary and in the run-up to whatever new Nexuses come next, we take a look back at the hardware path that’s been Google’s gold standard for Android.
Android L preview is hot at the moment. Everyone is talking about it and we can’t wait for Google to release it when it’s done, hopefully this Fall. Google released Android “L” preview for Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013) only, but there seems to be hope for Nexus 4, first-gen Nexus 7 and a Nexus 10.
Thanks to Android Police we managed to find out that Google released a source code for Android “L” preview. We were surprised to find out that they did it for both Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (2012), even the Nexus 10, considering people feared Google might not push the “L” update to those device, me included.
Here are the links:
- LG Nexus 4
- LG Nexus 5
- Asus Nexus 7 2012 ( Wi-Fi)
- Asus Nexus 7 2012 (LTE)
- Asus Nexus 7 2013 (Wi-Fi)
- Asus Nexus 7 2013 (LTE)
- Samsung Nexus 10
Finally some indication we might se “L” pushed to some older Nexus devices, way to go Google!
The post Source code for Android “L” preview is now available in AOSP, Nexus 4 and 7 (2012) included appeared first on AndroidGuys.
The Android L preview has been out in the wild for almost a week now and owners of the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 2013 have been enjoying the benefits of a new and slick operating system. Owners of the other Nexus devices have been wondering whether they would get the chance to experience to see what Android L is like, and it looks like they might just get to very soon. The Android L preview source code for all current Nexus devices have been released on AOSP, including the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 2012 and the Nexus 10. This will hopefully mean that eager developers can start tinkering with the source code and produce their own Android L builds in the very near future.
A full list of the available source code files includes (as seen on Android Police):
- Nexus 4 – https://android.googlesource.com/device/lge/mako/+/l-preview
- Nexus 5 – https://android.googlesource.com/device/lge/hammerhead/+/l-preview
- Nexus 7 (2012 Wi-Fi) – https://android.googlesource.com/device/asus/grouper/+/l-preview

- Nexus 7 (2013 LTE) – https://android.googlesource.com/device/asus/deb/+/l-preview
- Nexus 10 – https://android.googlesource.com/device/samsung/manta/+/l-preview
The Android L preview has made many impressive improvements, ranging from significantly increased battery life to the complete UI design makeover known as Material Design. It’s truly captured what we expected from the next version of Android, and even if it isn’t that different under the hood, it’s definitely got the looks to convince us.
Are you excited to hear that the Android L preview files are now available on AOSP? Let us know your thoughts.

Earlier this morning T-Mobile support page listed Android 4.4.3 updates were heading out to the Nexus 4, Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013). It brought up a lot of questions, like, will the unlocked versions be getting it. It is a given that the unlocked versions for those devices would be receiving the update, the news was centered around T-Mobile’s carrier versions. For those that might be a little bit more than irritated by the news, there is some other good news out there for you guys. Google has just released the Android 4.4.3 factory image for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. It does seem to be missing for the Nexus 7 LTE version though. The file size rolls through at 444MB’s and you’ll need fastboot set up to to get it installed.
If you know what you are doing and just can’t wait for the update to roll trough to your device, then head over to developers.google.com and pick up your image and get to work.

Welcome my Android friends. Time to give you some of that precious Android news in a hurry. At least I hope it is in a hurry. Last week, I started doing this type of video just to relieve some of the burden of my double life as a workforce, 8-5 worker, and balancing the YouTube life. Trying to keep these videos quick, and today I achieve that…somewhat. HTC decided to play the false benchmark score game, which breaks my heart a little. The Galaxy S5 apparently has the best display, which I congratulate them for. Enjoy the show!
