Intel showed its face at MWC 2015 to give the world a yearly update on their upcoming line of chipsets for mobile.

LTE Nexus 7 (2013) JLS36I Restore Images Now Available
A few days ago, we mentioned that the JLS36I update to Android 4.3.1 had begun rolling out to LTE-enabled Nexus 7 (2013) tablets. However, at the time, we found it a bit curious that there was no associated restore image available on Google’s Nexus Factory Images website. Even though the incremental OTA links had been captured and the files themselves mirrored, it’s always nice to have a full restore image of the latest firmware just in case.
Now, Google has finally made the factory restore images available for download. We’re still unsure what (if any) user-visible changes have occurred since then. Some seem to think there may be something related to a kiosk mode, but we’re unable to verify that. Regardless, any update is progress, and being able to flash it directly is always good.
If you haven’t received the OTA or would just like to have a copy, make your way over to the Nexus Factory Images page and download away. And if you have any idea as to what has changed in 4.3.1, which is exclusive to the LTE-enabled variant, let us know in the comments section below.
