Got a Nexus 7? Get the update!

SHARE

Though we aren’t exactly part of the opening wave of Nexus 7 availability here in the Philippines, I know more than a few people who own one. If this is any indication of the number of Nexus 7 users in the rest of our country, then there are now quite a few, and not all may be hardcore enough to get the update. Google released the official 4.1.2 Jellybean update to Nexus 7 owners in other countries a few weeks back, but for the rest of us, there is still the option of installing it yourself. Why put yourself through the hassle? Well, aside from general updates to help with system stability and speed, you will now be able to use your 7 in landscape mode. That alone is reason enough to make the jump. If you want to do it yourself, androidpolice.com has a quick guide HERE. Remember, back everything up, and if things go south, let this be the warning: you are on your own. That being said, if you follow the instructions, you should be just fine. Good luck, and happy updating!
