Nexus 7 can be updated with this new Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean custom ROM that brings AOKP Milestone 1 to this popular Android tablet.

You can update Nexus 7 to AOKP Milestone 1 Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean custom firmware using the tutorial below.

Also make sure, your warranty will be voided when you install this custom ROM.

Disclaimer: All the custom ROMs and firmwares, official software updates, tools, mods or anything mentioned in the tutorial belong to their respective owners/developers. We ( or the developers are not to be held responsible if you damage or brick your device. We don’t have you on gun point to try out this tutorial

A few more optional tips that you should remember:

  • 1. Having problems connecting your Android tablet to the computer? You may need to enable USB debugging mode. See here: How to Enable USB Debugging — for Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich and Jelly Bean.
  • 2. Make sure your Android device is charged up to 80-85% battery level. This might help you: How to Check Battery Percentage. Why? Because, if your tablet goes off suddenly while installing a custom ROM, flashing an official firmware update or installing mods etc. — your tablet might get bricked or go dead permanently. No one wants that, right?
  • 4. Most of the tutorials and how-to guides on Team Android are for factory unlocked Android phones and tablets. We recommend NOT to try our guides if your phone is locked to a carrier, unless we have specified the carrier name or device model.
