    How to Install Android 4.4.4 Kitkat In Nexus 7 2012 Tablet

    Nexus 7 2012 is an amazing budget tablet that comes loaded with a set of good hardware configuration. The tablet is released with Android v4.2 Jelly Bean operating system. And yet it has not received Kitkat update. The tablet hardware is capable of running this new operating system. It is powered by NVIDIA Tetra 3 Quad Core tablet and has a 1Gbddr2 ram on the same. It has an amazing 7 inch HD screen that offer you a max resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. It is a vibrant Back-lit IPS Display which is also covered with Scratch-resistant Corning Glass. The tablet has a 1.2 MP Front Facing Camera and comes with 32 GB Internal Storage. It runs on 4325 mAh battery.

    This tablet brings out amazing performance and it is good for day to day usage. But due to outdated android OS you have limited functions. Today I will show you the process through which you can install Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS on the same. We are going to add Android 4.4.4 KitKat Official Stock Firmware. That means the factory rom. This does not require any rooting stuff. If you had rooted then you can unroot the tablet by adding this Android 4.4.4 KitKat Official Stock Firmware. It is tested and it works well. So let's move ahead.


    • Start with backup. We are flashing the rom. So you are going to lose everything. Whatever data you had stored in the internal memory will be wiped out. Just backup everything.
    • Put the tablet on charging. It is essential that there must be more than 80% of charge on the same.
    • Go in settings and then tap on about. There you can find a developer option. You have to tap on usb debugging. Enable that.
    • Connect the phone to your pc. If you have the latest USB Drivers install you won't get any popup. But if not then windows will try to install new usb drivers. This are essential.
    • Download and install Android ADB on your system. Extract the content on a desktop in a folder. ADB is available for Mac, Windows and Linux.
    • Download Android 4.4.4 Factory Image depending your 3G or Wifi version tablet.

    Installation Process:

    • Just check once again that your system has the latest usb drivers installed. Or else the process is going to fail.
    • Go in the folder where you had extracted the content of Android ADB. In that you have to extract the Android 4.4.4 factory image file which is in rar format.
    • Now switch off the tablet. We have to boot that in fastboot mode. For that hold the power and volume down key.
    • The tablet will start in bootloader mode.
    • Once done connect it to the pc through original usb cable.
    • If you are using a windows pc then you have to run flash-all.bat. Just double click on that. And if you are using mac or Linux then you have to run flash-all.sh from Terminal.
    • The process will take a few minutes to complete. Once done restart the phone and done.
