By Jenalyn Villamarin | February 13, 2013 4:03 PM EST
Google Nexus users are offered with a couple of available methods on how to install the highly-anticipated Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update in their devices like the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. For the Nexus 7, users can either choose from using a simple trick that usually works with these kinds of updates or downloading the latest Android software from Google then install the update manually.
The first method is suggested to the Nexus 7 users but they are cautioned that sometimes it does not work in every tablet. "Some owners use different variants of these steps to force the update so Nexus 7 users should try different combinations of these steps," the web site GottaBeMobile commented.
Here are the steps for installing the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update:
1. Go to Settings > Apps > All
2. Locate Google Services Framework.
3. Tap on Force Stop.
4. Choose Clear Data.
5. Return to the Nexus 7's Settings then go to "About" and check for a System Update. The update will then prompt for download and install the Android 4.2.2 update will be up and successfully run on the Nexus 7.
The second method is to download the Nexus 7 Wi-Fi Only Android 4.2.2 update directly from Google though it will definitely take some time. Nexus 7 users must make sure the tablet is currently running on build JOP40D.
If for some reason the Nexus 7 does not have JOP40D, Google has it available in factory image from this web link: https://developers.google.com/android/nexus/images#takjujop40d. Unfortunately, this method will not work on the Nexus 7 3G version.
Installing the Android 4.2.2 update through custom recovery can be done once the file is downloaded in the internal storage. Restart the Nexus 7 into custom recovery then choose "Install zip from SD card." Choose the downloaded update file in the internal storage. The Android 4.2.2 update will then become available on the Nexus 7 tablet.
For the Nexus 7 users doubtful in trying these methods on installing the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean update on their tablets, the Over-The-Air (OTA) update will soon arrive even though Google remains tight-lipped about how long the update process will take.
