Android 5.0.2 factory images now available for the Nexus 7 LTE (2012 and 2013)


Nexus 7 2013

It’s been a long time coming, but those of you with the cellular equipped Nexus 7 (both models) can expect Android 5.0.2 Lollipop to soon hit your devices. Earlier today, Google posted the system images and binaries for both the original Nexus 7 LTE , and the Nexus 7 2013 LTE as shown in the screen shot down below.

The Android 5.0.2 update (build LRX22G) is the same build number that already rolled out to the Nexus 10 and WiFi equipped Nexus 7 models. We’re not sure what took Google so long, but hopefully it gave them enough time to patch up all those bugs we’ve been hearing about. From here, you can either manually apply the update yourself (providing you have an unlocked bootloader and knowledge of ADB), or wait for the official rollout to commence.

Still no word on when Google plans on pushing out this update over-the-air, but it shouldn’t be much longer now. Those of you with the 4G LTE equipped Nexus 7 or Nexus 2013 can rest assured the update is, in fact, coming.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. oh snap, I just seen people talk about this earlier wondering where the update it! awesome!

  2. So happy, smart unlock and lower brightness are finally here!

    BTW, og N7 was 4g HSPA+, not LTE, but minor mistake.

  3. At last !! still waiting for 5.0.2 on my N4…. Never happy, always grumpy ;-)

  4. I’m looking forward to this. I hope that they fixed the AT&T tethering issue on the 2013.

  5. My Nexus 7 2012 slowed down with the Lollipop update; hopefully it won’t slow down the 2013 LTE version.
