Hi, I purchased my nexus 7 about 3 years ago, and now they have the new nexus 7 which has a lot more features. Is there a lot of hardware changes made to the new nexus vs the one that came out 3 years go, I'm wondering if I can update my rooted nexus 7 to have the features and stuff of the newer nexus 7.

Thanks

Have you kept your older N7 up to date with updates?

Software wise there wouldn't be a big difference.... But the new n7 could have hardware features the old one doesn't have....nothing you can do about it.

Yes, I usually update it all the time and re-root it. I saw that there was an app that came with it that would turn the tablet into a kids tablet, then you can put in a security code and it turns the tablet into a normal tablet, i'm not sure what it is called.

I have the older 2012 and newer 2013 N7 models. Both are running Android 4.4.2 and the same apps. The newer N7 clocks ~50 faster Antutu scores, and has a 5 Mp front camera and wireless charging capability that the older model can't touch.
