How to install Android 5.1.1 LMY48I Factory Image for Nexus 10:

If you are running an older Android 5.1.1 LMY47V build on your tablet and it is a stock firmware, then you can skip the ‘factory reset’ and use the guide to update the tablet without losing any data.

This can be done by modifying the ‘flash-all.bat’ installer. Here’s how to do that:

  • download and extract the contents of the firmware archive.
    – you will obtain various files.
  • open the ‘flash-all.bat’ file in a text editor.
  • find and delete the -w command.
  • now save the changes.

You will have to setup the Android SDK and the ‘platform-tools’ folder on your PC:

  • download the Android SDK from here.
  • install the Android SDK.
  • now find and launch the SDK Manager.
  • download and install all the SDK packages and drivers.
  • open the SDK directory and find the ‘platform-tools’ folder.
  • next, download Google USB driver and install it too.

Now you can start the Android 5.1.1 Factory Image installation:

  1. Download the Android 5.1.1 LMY48I factory image archive from here.
  2. Extract the archived files on your PC.
    – place these files in the ‘platform-tools’ folder.
  3. Power off your tablet.
  4. Now boot it in Bootloader / Fastboot Mode.
  5. Connect the Nexus 10 to your PC via USB cable.
  6. Open a command prompt window in the ‘platform-tools’ folder.
    – do it by pressing SHIFT and right-clicking on the folder’s empty space to select ‘open command window here’.
  7. Enter adb devices in command prompt in order to verify that the tablet has been detected by your PC.
    – if the tablet has been detected you can continue to the next step.
    – in case the tablet is not recognized you will have to setup once again Android SDK and reinstall all usb drivers.
  8. You can start the Android 5.1.1 LMY48I Factory Image installation by double-clicking on the flash-all.bat script.
    – confirm the installation.
    – note that the process will take at least ten minutes to complete.
  9. Reboot your Nexus 10 in normal mode after all files are flashed with success.

Unplug the tablet from PC when the ‘optimizing apps’ screen appears.

If you need more help you can reboot the device in normal mode.
