Hey,

I already used the search but didn't find anything.. Has anybody a flashable stock recovery for the Nexus 7 2013 Wifi? I want to install the 4.4.3 Update but I can only flash it with the stock recovery.

Christoph

You need to download the stock image from Google. You won't need recovery though. Just flash system with fastboot and you're done.

You will not lose if data if you extract the system image (system.img) from the archive, then run fastboot flash system system.img. This will replace only the system partition's contents, updating you to 4.4.3.

If you run flash-all.bat, you will lose your data.

If you don't have fastboot, download the 19.0.2 (API 19) link from my signature, it's in that package.

Did you also flash the 4.4.3 boot.img? It has a new kernel. (nandroid your present boot first, just to be safe though)

Edit: Flashing the kernel solved the WLAN problem. Thanks again!
