Earlier today, we reported on the new Nexus 7 receiving a firmware update that will reportedly fix issues some users are having with its multi-touch. It looks as though that isn’t the only update Google has planned for the Nexus 7 as well as additional Nexus devices as the company has just posted factory images of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean for a good chunk of these devices.
Currently, the Nexus 7 2012 and 2013 versions, Nexus 4, GSM Galaxy Nexus, and Nexus 10 are capable of downloading the factory images of the latest version of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean straight from Google. The update, which for the new Nexus 7 is numbered JSS15Q while it’s numbered JWR66Y for the remaining Nexus devices, are particularly useful if you wish to restore your Android device to a completely untouched state, although i’ll also make the latest version of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean available.
If you own one of the supported Nexus devices and aren’t familiar with exactly how to go about updating your device to the new Android 4.3 Jelly Bean factory images, Google has provided instructions to help you through the process. As you’d expect, Google also warns users of the dangers that can be associated with flashing an image onto your device, so be on the look out for anything weird going on.
