Android 4.3.1 silently rolls out to LTE Nexus 7

Like a thief in the night, a new update to Android 4.3 has crept into LTE-equipped Nexus 7's. We haven't got it OTA yet but as soon as we do we'll post our own screenshots and break down any changes we see for you. The update brings stability and performance improvements as always, Google Keep appears and apparently some changes to the restricted user profiles settings.

If you simply can't wait to get in and poke around, you can head to the following locations to grab the firmware you need and sideload it onto your Nexus 7:

While Google has made minor patches to the 4.3 firmware previously (multi-touch, Wi-Fi etc), they haven't previously changed the version number, so there must be something a little more significant in this update, although it is a tiny increment number. We'll update this article as soon as we get the update and play around with it some more.

Have you got the OTA firmware update yet? Flashed it instead? What have you noticed?

  • y bother go with a I phone because iPhone 3 4 5 5s run the same software ios7

  • It stands to reason that other Nexus devices will get it shortly and then everyone else, but it could just be a fix that primarily deals with Nexus 7 issues (there were a few!). Some users are reporting spontaneous reboots on the 4.3.1 update so it's not all peachy in 4.3.1 land!

  • for what sow only nexus phone are the only one to get it
