Nexus 7 “razor” JSS15Q Factory Image and Binaries Now Available (Updated: JWR66Y Images Too)

new nexus 7

The new JSS15Q (Android 4.3) factory image for the new Nexus 7 is now available. This update to JSS15Q should fix the multi-touch and GPS issues that have plagued the device over the last couple of weeks. If you haven’t received the update over-the-air, you could always flash these files. Waiting might be the better option, though, as I’d hate to see you completely wipe your device clean without realizing it. 

The binaries are available as well.

Update:  It looks like the new JWR66Y factory images for all of the other Nexus devices are available as well.

    Yeah…not so much. Just flashed this factory image to my new N7 (second one from Best Buy with this issue), and am still able to replicate the buggy touches like in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZRiMiNzs0U&feature=youtube_gdata_player

    Bummer. I really want to keep this thing as otherwise it rocks, but I’m not going to get stuck with faulty hardware beyond my return period.

    Finally going to make it usable?

    I love my new N7 but I have experienced plenty of bugs with it. It seems that the bluetooth pairing with my phone for internet connection wont work. As soon as I hit the option to connect for internet it immediately unchecks the box. Ive had a few apps freeze up on me from time to time, as well as the touch sensitivity seem to disappear at points. Hopefully this will roll out quickly.

      I get paid over $87
      per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able
      to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she
      convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I’ve been
