Google Nexus 7 Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS image released

June 30, 2012

After launching its first tablet ever at this year’s edition Google I/O, a device that also happens to be the first one to run Google’s latest Android version, the company decided to release the full OS image for the Nexus 7 and make it available to anyone interested in it.

The image will let Google Nexus 7 owners restore the tablet back to the original Android 4.1 Jelly Bean version (build JRN84D), in case anything wrong happens while meddling with the device. That means you won’t have to be afraid of bricking the tablet while trying out new things, although that doesn’t mean you should go ahead and go wild on your Nexus tablet, especially if you’re not comfortable rooting the device, installing custom ROMs or performing other similar procedures.

The OS image, codenamed “nakasi,” a music form, is available to download from Google’s developers site and measures just under 250MB in size.
