After a slightly protracted delay, which saw Jean-Baptiste Queru quit AOSP over legal issues pertaining to the release, both the factory image and the binaries are now available for the Nexus 7 (2013) which has been dubbed “razor”.

The build number on the factory image – JSS15J – is slightly above the build number on all the other factory images available for other Nexus devices – JWR66V – on Android 4.3 which leads to questions of exactly what has been changed in the later build, as well as what specifically was the motivation behind the update.

Nevertheless the factory image and binaries are here. You can start getting ROM support for the latest Nexus 7 with the official binaries built in or flash it back to stock when it all goes wrong. Even though it’s not released officially in Australia yet, you can import one, or buy one from Mobicity, Kogan or dMavo and join in the fun, or wait till late August/early September for the expected official launch.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
