Android 4.3.1 (JLS36I) Rolling out to the Nexus 7 (2013) LTE

Android 4.3.1 (JLS36I) Rolling out to the Nexus 7 (2013) LTE

What’s the main advantage of owning a Nexus device? There’s the easily unlockable bootloader, the stock Android experience sans OEM “value added” software, and various other perks. OK, fine. There are quite a few advantages to owning a Nexus device. That said, for most end users, it’s the promise of timely updates for as long as the hardware is relevant.

On the topic of updates, a new OTA is rolling out to LTE-enabled Nexus 7 (2013) devices, bringing the device to Android 4.3.1 (build JLS36I). It is not clear at this time what is updated in this new build. However, given that the update is rather small (under 10 MB), we don’t expect major changes to be present.

The image for the updated firmware is not yet available on the Nexus Factory Images website. Luckily, the nice folks over at AndroidPolice have captured the OTA links so that you can update your own device without having to wait. Hit up the source link below to get in on the action.
