Google has released the official Jelly Bean 4.2 images to its servers. If you can’t wait for the OTA like me then the manual method will get you 4.2 now. See how below,
I’m doing this on Fedora 17
NOTICE: Do this at your own risk. There is a chance of things going wrong and you might end up with a brick.
1. install adb and fastboot
yum install android-tools
2. Download the Jelly Bean 4.2 (JOP40C) factory image. Link
3. Extract the downloaded file.
tar -zxvf nakasi-jop40c-factory-6aabb391.tgz
4. Make the install scripts executable.
chmod +x flash-all.sh
chmod +x flash-base.sh
flash-all.sh will erase all data and flash everything.
flash-base.sh will only flash the bootloader and radio.
5. Make user USB debugging is on for your Nexus 7.
Settings –> Developer Options –> “On” –> USB Debugging –> “On”
6. Boot into fastboot
power off –> power on (hold power + volume down)till you get into the fastboot screen.
7. Unlock the boot loader.
fastboot oem unlock
confirm on your Nexus 7 screen.
8. Run the install script.
Google’s Nexus 7 was recently launched in Malaysia. Priced at RM999 for the 16GB model.

No one likes bicycle helmets, they’re heavy, bulky and simply look weird. However, they keep us alive and I’d rather stay alive with an ugly helmet on then die without one.
The overall design of a helmet has not changed for a long time and it always seemed impossible to come up with a better design until now that is.
Design students Anna and Terese thought it was possible. 7 years of hard work later they came up with the invisible helmet “HÖVDING”.
It’s essentially an air bag designed into a collar that fits around your neck with a custom shell designs to match your outfit. It will inflate in 0.1 sec when abnormal movement is detected either from a collision and when the rider falls of his bike. Read more
You can buy a “HÖVDING” for 3998 SEK (USD 600) from their online store. I love the design, I’d buy it now if I had the money , guess I’ll have to wait.
Watch the video and be wowed. read more
