Google has just posted updated factory images and driver binaries for the Nexus 7 (2013 and 2012), Nexus 4, Nexus 10, and Galaxy Nexus (yakju / takju variants) based on the new Android 4.3 bugfix builds JWR66Y and JSS15Q (2013 Nexus 7 only). The new builds follow OTA updates that have been rolling out over the last couple of days.

    Just got the OTA on my n4. Didn't lose root :)

    • Kevin Aaronson

      Did you have a custom recovery installed? Very curious if so.

      • Vibrunazo

        Yea, I have CWM.

        • BelgaSox

          hmmm I am rooted with cwm and the update failed on my N4.

        LMAO. I'm posting only because this made my day (yes, 5 days late).

        Poor Verizon (and Sprint) folks. They don't know what they have (or don't have).

    • Ahronzombi

      because of carriers not google. Thats why they are never making a cdma nexus again.

      One word. Verizon.

    Flashed the new N7 Factory Image, seems to have fixed the GPS problems I was having.

    • Jason

      My GPS is wonky on the original 4.3 build. Ingress is uselss and most times it takes a long time to get a GPS location, even though Maps seems to be ok...

      Weird.

  • Kylecore

    Gah I want to force the update OTA

  • AdamFitton

    Got my OTA on my Galaxy Nexus a few hours ago in Australia.

    What ever happened to posting the Google's actual update URLs, so that people can download them and initiate a normal update manually? That was handy because it was really easy, and you didn't need to unlock the bootloader or us adb/fastboot.

    Does that still work? Or do people just not bother to log the update URLs anymore, now that the driver binaries and factory images are made available?

    I'll probably wait for Google to push this update, not really worth the hassle of downloading a full package and flash via adb.

    • Jason

      I use WugFresh Nexus Toolkit. A little easier than the ADB/Bootloader command hassle. Call me lazy. I use those tools when I need, but Wug's kits is a slick little application that even downloads the right tgz files when just streamlines things.

  • Kenny Bateman

    Why the hell can't I download the files that are suposedly here??? I click on the link for jss15q and it just pops up some list of instructions and clicking on that does nothing!!!

  • RoachForLife

    Is it possible to force an OTA update on my N7?

  • Bumba Nag

    do not get upadte in india ?? :(

  • Raed Ibrahim Albloushy

    I did not get the update at first and then I cleared The Google framework’s data and voila the update begins downloading :)) I just love android however I certainly wish if the updates were a little sooner and hassle free....

    • BlackAce15

      Wish it worked for me

  • Brunobliss

    Just got this update, I'm very curious to know what changed !
