Nexus_Logo_Nexus_7_TA_01

We already posted the download link and instructions to install Android 4.2.2 (JDQ39) on the takju Galaxy Nexus, and now we have the same for the nakasi Nexus 7, which is the WiFi-only version.


In order to do the update, your device needs to be running build JOP40D. If you already have a custom recovery, you can just download the Zip file {linked below), copy it to your device, and flash. If you’re running the stock recovery, then download the Zip file (linked below), but leave it on your computer and follow these instructions:

You will need the latest version of adb in order to proceed. Just download the latest Android SDK to make sure you’re up to date.

  1. Power off your nakasi Nexus 7, and power back on by holding the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons while it boots.
  2. The fastboot menu should appear and you should see “Start” in the top right. Press Volume Up till it changes to “Recovery.” Press the Power button to select it.
  3. You will see an Android with a red exclamation point icon, press Volume Up and the Power button at the same time.
  4. You will get a new menu and you can navigate to “apply update from adb.”
  5. Now it’s time to connect your nakasi Nexus 7 to your computer via a USB cable
  6. Open the command prompt in Windows (cmd in Windows, regular shell in Linux and Mac) and navigate to the directory that the Zip file is located in.
  7. Type: adb sideload 6ece895ecb23.signed-nakasi-JDQ39-from-JOP40D.6ece895e.zip
  8. The update will install and reach 100%.
  9. Reboot and enjoy Android 4.2.2
