Since the Google event “breakfast with Sundar Pichai” took place yesterday in San Francisco, a lot has changed and we’ve stepped in to whole new world. From the Introductory release of the new Nexus 7, to Jelly Bean 4.3 release and Chromecast. Something here that goes common and worldwide is the release of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, of which everyone has been eagerly waiting, especially the Nexus users like me. The Source code for Jelly Bean 4.3 was already pushed while the event was on-going and just a few hours later, the Factory Images of the same started to push to the Google servers.
Most of us here (like me) can’t wait anymore for the OTA update and so I myself updated by flashing my Nexus 4 with the latest factory image. Was quite easy, but not for all the users out there. Just, if you don’t know how, read the instructions and update your Nexus easily. The update is out only for the Nexus smartphones and tablets, and so are these instructions.
The process needs your device’s bootloader to be unlocked. Follow the guide link below.
The Instructions are similar, the only thing that differs is the file names. Make sure to download the file mentioned for your device only and use appropriate names as per delivered to you. Make sure to replace the file names in step #7, 9 & 11 according to the once delivered for your device in the Factory Image package.
fastboot erase boot
fastboot erase cache
fastboot erase recovery
fastboot erase system
fastboot erase userdata
fastboot flash bootloader <bootloader_file_name.img>
fastboot flash radio <radio_file_name.img>
fastboot -w update <ROM_file_name.img>
The last command shall take a bit longer for completion, kindly wait for it to complete. As soon as it is done, the device will reboot itself into the very new Jelly Bean 4.3.
