When announcing Android Lollipop Google surprised us all by stating that they would be updating the 2 year old first generation Nexus 7. While Nexus owners everywhere have been dying to get factory images for their own devices such as the Nexus 5 and more recent 2013 Nexus 7, 2012 Nexus 7 owners get a sweet treat tonight by means of a generous leaker.
Signed factory images for the 2012 Nexus 7 have been leaked out and are now available for download. According to sources familar with Android Police, this is the final build (LRX21P). Before you head to flash this however, keep in mind that there does appear to be a small issue with the bootloader. That is however pretty easy to fix by simply skipping that step and flashing system.img and boot.img. You can download the factory image from Google’s own servers at the link below.
