Android 4.2.1 (JOP40D) for Nexus 7 Wi-Fi/3G – Manual Update Available [Updated]
Those with a custom recovery can just download the zip below, move it to their device, and flash away. If you're running stock recovery, substituting only the zip file name in Step 2.
Just after users began reporting that your Google Nexus N7 3G device were receiving an update to Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (build JOP40C, to be precise), it looks like the manual update package is available for download. As could be expected, this coincides almost perfectly with the launch of Google's newest additions to the Nexus family – the Nexus 4 and 10.
For those ready to download and install manually, the process is easy. If you have a custom recovery, just download the zip (linked below), move it to your device, and flash as usual. Those with stock recovery should keep the file on their computer, and just follow a few easy instructions:
Disclaimer: I'm not responsible in case of brick of your device - proceed at your own risk.
- Reboot your Google Nexus 7 Nakasig, holding the Volume Up and Volume Down buttons while it boots up. Once you see the fastboot menu and "Start," press Volume Up to navigate to "Recovery" and press the power button. Once you see an Android with a red exclamation point icon, press Volume Up and the Power button together, which will bring you to a new menu. Navigate to "apply update from adb."
- Connect your Google N7 3G to your computer with a USB cable.
- Make sure you have a recent version of adb that supports the sideload command (if you don't, download the latest Android SDK to ensure your adb is up-to-date).
- Open up a command prompt (cmd in Windows, regular shell in Linux and Mac) in the same directory as the JOP40C zip file you've downloaded.
Type in the following:
adb sideload 65880f56b1c0.signed-nakasig-JOP40D-from-JOP40C.65880f56.zip
You should see a progress bar, which will eventually hit 100%. At this point, your device is installing the update.
- Reboot and enjoy! You are now running Android 4.2.1 on your Nakasig Nexus.
