Updating rooted Nexus7 to Lollipop 5.0.2
« on: February 11, 2015, 10:15:19 AM »
I have a rooted Nexus7 (2012).  An update of the OS, going from KitKat to Lollipop, downloaded without my doing anything, but I didn't accept the update.  Do I have to root all over to update to Lollipop?  If not, what do I need to do to wind up with a rooted tablet running Lollipop?  How do I specify the correct 5.0.2 build for my Nexus7?

Use WUG FRESH's toolkit and use the guide that S. Prime has written up.

Thank you.  In the meantime, is there some way I can erase the 5.0.2 installer file that Google downloaded and remove the notification that the OS upgrade has been downloaded?

You can disable the notification for the upgrade. When there is a notification, long press on it, click on app data and turn off notifications.

If I remember correctly, the actual downloaded file is in /cache.

Yes that worked for getting rid of the notification.

Yes, the zip file was in /cache and I erased it.  The name of the file told me what Build I want to upgrade to (LRX22G)

Thanks
