Step-2: Connect and mount the Nexus 7 USB memory on computer using the USB cable

Step-3: Transfer the update.zip to the SD card of the tablet. The file should be in the SD card root, not in any folder

Step-4: Power off the tablet and enter into the Bootloader Mode. To do so, turn on the Nexus tablet while pressing and holding Volume Up and Power buttons together until the Fastboot menu and Start appear on the screen

Step-5: Follow the navigation instructions on the screen. Press Volume Up for a few times until you see RECOVERY then press the Power button to select it

Step-6: An exclamation mark should appear. Hold Volume Up and Power buttons together again. You should see the Recovery Mode menu

Step-7: In recovery mode, select update from SD card then select update.zip using Power button and confirm installation

Step-8: After the installation is completed, the Nexus tablet will boot and it would take about five minutes to boot for the first time

Happy flashing.

I very much appreciate the input. I have a 2012 Nexus 7 (wifi), not a 2013 version.

When I get into the recovery menu the options are "reboot system now", "apply update from ADB", "wipe date/factory reset", and "wipe cache partition"

there is no menu option for "select update from SD card".

Do you know how to use adb and adb sideload? You can always choose "apply update from adb" and then on your PC "adb sideload <filename of update.zip>"

This conversation had its start a number of posts ago where I could not get Windows Vista to recognize my nexus 7 while in recovery no matter what xda recomendations I followed.

The most recent responder suggested an alternate procdure to which you see my response.

Download file - http://click.xda-developers.com/api/...13849803778656

Then go to recovery, choose "apply update from ADB" turn on in CMD adb, and enter command adb sideload <filename.zip>

I'm still scratching my head as to why Google didn't inform customers of the bugs in the KRT16O version to explain to them why they were not recieving the update so long after Google confirmed it was being sent out.

Regardless, I gave up waiting and tried to flash the KRT16S image to my Nexus 7 (2012 wifi), unfortunately what ever I tried I could not get Windows Vista to recognize my tablet while in recovery.

Normally when I connect my tablet to my pc it is imediately recognized by windows. when I connect my tablet to my pc while in adb recovery it will not connect even after clicking the USB driver folders when Windows asks for them.

I've seached xda for suggestions to resolve this, and tried the following:

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, and tried installing latest Google USB drivers as well ast the latest Asus nexus 2012 usb drivers. I also tried with USB debugging both on and off, and with my device in both MTP and PTP, again all without success.

I guess I have to wait another week or more for the ota update.

Thanks Google for not just providing an update link in the Google Play store.

Why the 2012 N7 does not have the ability to flash updates from the stock recovery is beyond me and a serious oversight that Google should fix...my GS3 stock recovery has the option and it is "locked down" Samsung we're talking about here. Not everyone has access to a PC, Google.

Do you have USB debugging turned on? Also do you have PdaNet installed? That would help with the drivers.

It's not been released unto the masses via ota yet.

Why is the right door always locked?

Not getting past 4.4 boot screen
N7 (2012) on JWR66Y, rooted, unlocked with TWRP 2.6. Placed OTA in the root folder and flashed via TWRP. All installed fine and when reboot, it stays on the new boot screen and doesn't go past. Had to restore via TWRP to 4.3

Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Tried again and during the flash process I get "Failed" when updating partition table...
