Default Nexus 7 (2013) Auto Updater with Root Restore [4.4.4]

Nexus 7 (2013) Wi-Fi Auto Updater with Root Restore

Nexus 7 Flo Auto Updater with Root Restore by Unfathomable
Build: Nexus 7 (2013) Flo Wi-Fi
Android 4.4.4
Recovery img: TWRP
Compatible only for Windows PC
Compiled from Modified Factory Images on Google Developers.

This kit is designed to update Stock rooted Nexus 7 devices to Android 4.4.4 while retaining all user data as well as root permissions. This will also work on non-rooted devices with an unlocked Bootloader.


Before you Start:

# This toolkit is designed to update without wipe but anything is possible, so I strongly urge you
to back up all data. Also I am not liable for any lost information.

# Please configure all ADB drivers

# Place phone in Fastboot mode. Power down the device; (Press and hold Power + Volume Down)
until the device boots into Fastboot.

# Extract all files, open the EXE file in the provided folder and follow the prompts Carefully.

VERY IMPORTANT!
After your device reboots, boot your Nexus into recovery. TWRP recovery should boot. Select the reboot option and reboot system.
You will be prompted "Swipe to flash SuperSU". This will restore all Root permissions.
*Also in the event that your device is stuck in a bootloop, just wipe the cache and you should be good to go!


I am open to feedback and if this helps please give me a thumbs up!


I am not liable for any harm that may come to your device but I am open to help.
Thank you all.

Which .exe? I see fastboot.exe and adb.exe in the .zip file. But there's no other executable. it just appears like this is the full 4.4.4 image files, but no "kit" that I can determine. I don't see how this would specifically save userdata.

As long as the boot loader is unlocked you will be ok

Your computer is recognizing the EXE as infected?

Yes, Quarantined it as quickly as it was unzipped. Symantec was recognizing it referred to as "Suspicious.Cloud.5"
