Android 5.0.2 Lollipop Factory Images Released for Nexus 7 3G Models

Google has finally published the long-awaited factory images of Android 5.0.2 Lollipop for the cellular variants of the Asus Google Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013) tablets.

While there is no information for over-the-air (OTA) update as yet, users can manually download and flash the zip update file for the Nexus 7 (2012) 3G and Nexus 7 (2013) 3G from Google's Nexus Factory Images page.

To remind you, Google had only updated the Nexus 7 Wi-Fi models, apart from the Nexus smartphones, ever since the Android 5.0 Lollipop release in October 2014.

The company hadn't even provided the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Nexus 7 cellular models, and after the Android 4.4.4 KitKat build from the middle of last year, the company has now jumped straight to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop - which comes with build number LRX22G, and is dated October 22. The update also includes driver binaries, which may be the reason for the delay, according to Android Police.

In December, Google had released the Android 5.0.2 factory image for Wi-Fi only Nexus 7 (2012), and in January for the Nexus 7 (2013) Wi-Fi and Nexus 10 tablets.

The update was incremental and its official changelog provided by Google for the LRX22C build to LRX22G build of the Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013) tablets, essentially focussed on performance, apart from dealing with issues related to tune delivery, batching of alarms, storage, boot time and more.

Now that the factory images of the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update is finally out, we also expect the company to roll it out over-the-air for users who do not know how or wish the manually flash their devices.
