Installation

If CWM ask you to 'Disable Recovery Flash' after install, select no ! It will remove the files needed for the init.d support.

Please do not restore a 'system' data backup as it would overwritte some important files

Easy Way
  • Use JROMFlasher (Click here) to wipe your data, flash custom recovery, upload my ROM

Hard Way
  • Require Custom Recovery
  • Copy the ROM to the root of your SDCard (/sdcard).
    - You can copy/paste it from Windows Explorer.
    - You can download the ROM from your device. It will be generally located in /sdcard/downloads
    - You can use ADB : 'adb push ROM.zip /sdcard/' for Windows and Mac/Linux : './adb push ROM.zip /sdcard/'
  • Boot into Recovery
  • Wipe all cache and userdata
  • Flash the ROM from custom Recovery

Have not installed any Rom since I have had the tablet but this looks like exactly what I have been waiting for. I figured since it is already up to date on software what's the point but the tablet ui looks awesome and the tweaks you made are making me change my mind. I can't wait to try it out. Thanks OP

For some stupid reasons, I deleted my installed custom rom via custom recovery. Then i rebooted with a prompt "No OS is installed, do you want to reboot?" I swipe to reboot then i'm stuck at Google screen. I'm already downloading the toolkit. Can someone please help me. Will I use the toolkit when my nexus 7 is in bootloader mode? ( Power button + volume down) And i think i haven't installed my drivers. Can i install drivers of nexus 7 without having to plug my device when it's working normally? Please someone help me.

flash customrom with otg cable
I got into the problem as yours once,
luckly, I have ClockworkMod Touch Recovery on the tablet & otg cable
You can do this by:
. copying a custom rom (obviously, mine is SMOOTHROM) into a usb stick
. connecting that usb stick (containing the customROM), by using otg cable
. boot Tablet to Recovery mode,...looking for sth like MOUNT, to mount the usb stick
. then you either FLASH CUSTOM ROM from your USB stick
but it is safer/better by: copying the custom rom to your Tablet,
then you flash it.

Hope you have Recovery program, and an OTG cable, and can solve the problem
Good luck!

I am going to try this today, but I had a bear of a time downloading it! Is it just me, or is the server particularly slow? I have 60MB download speed and 10 MB up, and it took me over an hour to DL this file. Might just be server traffic, jammed up with all the hoards of adoring fans downloading the rom! But just thought I'd let the OP know, in case he wants to throw up a few more mirrors. Anyway, thanks for the hard work you put into this rom! This will be my first flash on the N7 after having run rooted stock for 2 months...

Tablet ui is pretty awesome in this ROM only thing is that the grid on the home screen is off a bit and the apps are proportioned slightly off the grid causing apps to be in 2 screens at once. Otherwise great ROM man!
