Flashing a ROM, even an official one, involves risk. If you do not follow the procedure properly, you can end up with an unusable deceive. Neither AndroidPIT or myself will be held responsible for anything bad that comes your way, so proceed at your own risk.
Be warned: this method results in the loss of all your data, so back up all your data first.
Firmware Android 4.3 for Nexus 7 WiFi (nakasi)
Firmware Android 4.3 for Nexus 7 3G (nakasig)
Fastboot + ADB drivers
- Charge the Nexus 7 to at least 80%
- Make sure the drivers are installed before flashing (see following tutorial)
- Save data
- Download the correct firmware for your model, make no mistakes here!
- Unzip the contents of the firmware in a folder named for example ''AndroidNexus7''.
- Download Fastboot + ADB drivers and unzip the contents to the same folder in Windows.
- Put your Nexus 7 in Fastboot mode, to do this turn it off and press the volume up button, volume down and power simultaneously.
- Connect your Nexus 7 in Fastboot mode to your PC via USB.
- <<If you haven't unlocked your bootloader already, press Shift key and right-click in the fastboot folder, then select ''Open Command Prompt.'' Once the Command Prompt is open, enter the command ''fastboot oem unlock'' and exit Command Prompt. Your tablet will ask if you want to unlock, select ''Yes'' and let it do its thing.>>
- In ''AndroidNexus7'' folder, launch ''flash-all''.
- A window will open, from this moment, leave your PC alone. Do not disconnect your tablet either. You may sometimes feel that the system is blocked, but this is not the case. Some phases are long, so just don't touch anything and wait till the process is complete.
