Google Glass XE12 Factory Image and Rooted Bootloader Now Available
A few days ago, we talked about how Google Glass update to XE12 brought a considerable amount of new functionality to the company’s first foray into wearable computing. In addition to new and improved Glassware for YouTube and Hangouts, a lock screen, new search cards, iOS support, and better Google Play Music support, the update also brought the ability to take pictures by simply winking.
Now, Google has released the factory restore image for the XE12 update for the device. And just like with previous updates, they have also provided a pre-rooted bootloader, which can be applied through a few very simple fastboot commands.
It’s great to see that Google has released the factory restore images shortly after the official XE12 update’s release. If you’re a Glass owner or if you simply want to open up the images, head over to the source link below to get started.

With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
