Google has released the JLS36C Android 4.3 Jelly Bean Factory Image, Binaries, AOSP Code titled ‘android-4.3_r3’ for their Nexus 7 LTE tablet. This means that developers, who are constantly releasing custom goodies for this particular device, will be able from now on to work with the full factory image of Nexus 7 2013 and create new custom ROMs, optimized kernels, boot animations and more.
The AOSP code of this factory image has been set to ‘android-4.3_r3’ while the factory image is the latest OTA Update version named JLS36C. Since the developers are more interested in this release you might think that there is not much that you can do with the factory image, but you couldn’t be more wrong. Let’s say that you’ve already rooted, installed a custom ROM, then another one, modded some other parts of your Google Nexus 7 LTE which now resulted in boot failures and slow overall OS speed, then you can always use the stock Android 4.3 JLS36C Jelly Bean factory image to restore it to full stock.
Using a factory image to restore the Google Nexus 7 2013 LTE to stock is easy to complete but you need to know that every file will be removed in the process. However, those who want to use the factory image should know that the Android 4.3 JLS36C factory image measures 376MB and it is recommended for you to download using a WiFi connection.
