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.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
