Android 5.0.2 factory image for the Nexus 7 (2012) released by Google

nexus72012rear

Still have a Nexus 7 (2012) lying around? If so, you could soon be on the newest version of Android before anyone else.

Google has posted an Android 5.0.2 factory image for the Nexus 7 (2012) Wi-Fi. Yep, that’s Android 5.0.2, not Android 5.0.1. The Android 5.0.2 factory image shows as build LRX22G, which is slightly newer than the LRX22C build of Android 5.0.1 that we’ve seen lately.

So what’s exactly inside of this new update? That’s unclear right now, but considering that it’s another x.x.1 update and that its build number is ever so slightly higher than Android 5.0.1’s, we’re betting that it’s a small bug-fixing update. If you’ve got a Nexus 7 (2012) and want to find out what it is for yourself, you can download the image right here.

    it obvious android 5 was rushed and pushed for too early, its full of bugs

    • ellett

      Er, NO!

      Android 5 is a HUGE update involving millions of lines of code and there WILL be bugs in anything this big. I’m pleasantly surprised at how few bugs there have been.

    Least Google is kicking out fixes here and there…I’m not about to complain!Just surprised that the Nexus 5 I purchased in March 2014 hasn’t had not one (bug) issue on either KitKat or Lollipop!(Lucky I know)

    If Android Lollipop will soon be available on Nexus 7 (2012) than I would probably drop down the plan of buying Nexus 6 or either going buy Galaxy Note 4 that support adaptive charging with high capacity based USB wall charger.

    I have a Nexus 7 2012 Wifi+3G. I don’t use the 3G part, no sim, etc, can I use this image? I’m still waiting for android 5 OTA… but nothing

    I have a Nexus 7 (2012) wi-fi, and I would recommend keeping it on Kit Kat. After two years, it had already gotten pretty laggy, and once I updated to Lollipop it became largely unusable, Even turning pages in Kindle had very noticeable lag, and half of my games became unplayable. I rooted the tablet and reinstalled a clean image of Lollipop, but that didn’t help much. I have since rolled back to a 4.4.4 build and it is much more useable than Lollipop or my previous KitKat prior to wiping the tablet.

    Installed 5.02 from kit kat and love it. None of the issues described in 5.0 so far. Very happy!
