We saw in late December that Google had published download links for the Nexus 7 (2012) factory images, but now it appears OTA update links are finally making the rounds. While not much is known about the specifics of what this update brings, Google has been fast to push this minor Lollipop revision to Nexus 7 owners. Many have reported that Lollipop brought reductions in performance, so if you’re one of those people, it might be a good idea to try this out and see if it will help.

Nexus 7 (WiFi, 2012) OTA update download for 5.0.2 now available

A few days ago we noticed that Google had updated its factory image download page with a download link for Android Lollipop 5.0.2 (a build currently specific to the WiFi 2012 Nexus 7). Now, it appears that the you can now download the same software in the form of an OTA .zip straight from Google.

The update should be rolling out over-the-air currently (if you haven’t gotten it already), but if you need the OTA update to update your device manually, the above link is straight from Google’s servers. If you’ve never done a manual OTA update before, be sure to check out our guide.
