JB 4.3
« on: July 25, 2013, 04:39:17 PM »
Anyone tried flashing their Nexus 7 (or 4 or 10) with JB 4.3 yet?

Images are already available, but it doesn't seem to be as straight forward as before.

Yes I tried installing the update in zip file format from CWM recovery and received "Assert Fails:apply_patch_check, ("/system/vendor/lib/hw/power.grouper.so") showing Status 7. This indicates a kernel that is "not stock", so I restored the stock kernel and tried the zip update again and had the same results. My next attempt was a sideload of the zip update file and I had the same error. I am looking at the stock rom 4.3 on xda Here, but I am curious as to whether the OTA will give the same error, so until I receive feedback that the OTA fails for the same reason, I will wait a day or two before trying the xda 4.3 stock rom. Be advised, that the App Store version of SU has issues with 4.3, so make sure you read xda 4.3 stock rom post if you fail to access SU after applying the update with CWM.

Here is a method from android police:
http://www.androidpolice.com/2013/07/25/how-to-update-your-2012-nexus-7-to-android-4-3-jwr66v-and-root-it-right-now/


I'm in no hurry, waiting for ota.


This is the method that I used, trying option 1 and 2. I would be interested in hearing, if anyone achieves success.

Chainfire has released an updated SuperSU overnight.

Think I'll wait a few days before trying to update.

Yes unfreeze any apps that came pre-installed on your Nexus 7 and then install Voodoo OTA RootKeeper and run it to protect Root (just to be safe) and if you have CWM recovery, answer "NO" when asked on startup after the update, "do you want to replace your current recovery?" Answering yes will replace CWM with the stock recovery.

Install Rom Manager free from the Play Store and use it to boot recovery and if it fails reinstall recovery with one of the toolkits.

Looks like there was a new release of the SDK toolset that needs to be installed.

Root is broken on 4.3 even with Chainfires updated SuperSU zip.
Anybody that flashes the OTA will need to re-root, Voodoo OTA RootKeeper does not work because of the security changes Google have made to Android in 4.3.

I've updated my Nexus 4 but not my Nexus 7.

OTA updated OK but SuperSU needs to be re-flashed.

Gonna try it now.
