So I recently got a notification about the Android 4.4.3 update and of course I am rooted. I got TWRP recovery and I am ready to flaah the OTA .zip file. Now my problem is that somehow my LatinIMEGoogle.apk is corrupted, but only the stock version (the one that can with the AOSP ROM). Now I am using the updated version from the Play Store and that's why I can write this message now. This problem prevents me from updating the Firmware of course. Now the only thing I need to do is to restore the system partition through recovery. I could find a Nandroid backup from the past but it somehow also already contains the broken LatinIMEGoogle.apk file so restoring didn't help. Now I am here to ask kindly if somebody mind sharing a Nandroid of the Android 4.4.2 system partition to let me restore via my recovery. I tried to search in XDA but somehow nobody has such kind of solution. (They always refer to the factory image from Google website) which I don't want! Because to set up my device from scratch takes a loooooot of time. Down below I have attached a photo of the flash failure so you know what I mean. Gesendet von meinem Nexus 7 mit Tapatalk REPLY

No data, no boot, no recovery. (Because I have them) OR you have another solution to this problem and it would be nice if you can tell me 😊 Gesendet von meinem Nexus 7 mit Tapatalk REPLY

If you're up to flash it, just be sure to back up beforehand. Hope it helps. Envoyé de mon Nexus 7 en utilisant Tapatalk REPLY

You do not have to flash all the partitions; you can pick and choose. First extract the system.img file from the factory image archive, then push it using Code: fastboot flash system C:\path\to\system.img REPLY

Wouldn't that wipe your device?
There's a light at the end of every tunnel. You just pray it's not a train.

It won't wipe it because you're only flashing the system partition of the device, worst thing that could happen is a bunch of FC's upon booting it. (which is unlikely but we never know)

Also @ChiDi9901 be sure you choose the odex version if you want to not have problems while getting some newer OTA. The stock roms are always odexed, just saying.. XD
