Tablet [Q] [REQ] Nexus 7 (2012) build.prop

Hi there!

I rooted my Nexus 7 when 4.4 was released in the UK, and now 4.4.2 is out, I want to update to that, but when I try to flash it in TWRP, it tells me that there are unexpected changes to 'build.prop'. I have indeed changed that file, but made a back-up. Unfortunately, it has not remembered that that backup existed, and as a result, I have no way of changing it. ES File Explorer refuses to make any changes to any system files even with Root Explorer.

Could anyone post the Android 4.4 build.prop for the Nexus 7 (2012)?

Thanks,

JJE990

oldblue910 (OP of the OTA thread) maintains an archive of past & present factory images for nakasi, nakasig, etc.

You can dig anything you want out of the system.img files using simg2img. See here, here, or here.

Don't you make nandroid backups of anything? TWRP .win files are just "tar" archives - might you already have the factory "/system/build.prop" in a Nandroid somewhere?

cheers

Unfortunately, I don't have admin rights on my PC, and the admin doesn't want me installing software onto the PC. Is there any other way I can obtain it? If not, could someone please get the stock Nexus 7 (2012) build.prop file from Android 4.4 KitKat for me and post a link?

Thanks,

JJE
