    Android 4.1.2 Is here for the Nexus 7! There are Several ways to update.




    As some of you may know by now, Android 4.1.2 is currently rolling out to select Nexus 7 devices. So far we have found that it adds Landscape mode, a new bootloader that will allow you to boot into recovery from bootloader mode, and other performance enhancements. If you are running a custom Rom or any firmware other than bonestock then you know the process to receiving an OTA is a tedious one. There are a few ways that you can update your device to 4.1.2.

    First Way- If you are running bonestock you can wait until you get the popup window shown above asking if you would like to install the available update.

    Second Way- You can return to stock using a tool like Nexus7 toolkit, then manually flash this file in custom recovery

    Third Way- You can return to Stock JR0O3D and follow a lengthy ADB manual install guide like this one

    EASIEST WAY- You can simply flash the STOCK ROOTED OTA file found here via custom recovery over ANY custom rom or firmware! (be sure to WIPE DATA!)

    So there you have it. Let me know how you came out!

    So, no wipe necessary? As in, I can keep AOKP on my N7 and flash that over it and keep all my data?

    Not so sure about that "easiest" way.

    Didn't know I needed to wipe - just installed it using Rom Manager (with nandroid backup and wipe cache.)

    Locked my system up tight. Not only wouldn't it boot normally, but it wouldn't even boot into recovery.

    Had to use adb (via Nexus 7 toolkit) to push CWM back onto the phone then restore from nandroid.

    If you can get to bootloader mode you can flash recovery manually via adb [How To] Manually Install ClockWorkMod Recovery and ROOT

    Or you could unbrick via wugfresh nexus toolkit

    No update as of last night, hoping it will come soon. Does the OTA require a wipe as well?
