    Okay, so it's a bit off-subject than Android but its for our beloved Nexus 7.

    Its a developer image apparently and some things don't work (e.g. audio output) but I'm going to try it just out of interest.....

    Health warning - this isn't for newbies on rooting, as I am still trying to work out how to get it installed onto the tablet myself!

    If you check the release notes, it shows what is and isn't working for each Nexus device.

    In terms of getting it installed, I've had to stop work as I am having to focus on work I'm afraid. But after doing some investigation into how to do it, it's really not straightforward at all.

    To get it flashed, you have a to be running an Ubuntu development environment on a pc or laptop, which means either running Ubuntu from a flash drive, or having dual boot on a Windows laptop. The image you would then need gets downloaded to the development environment.

    Hence, I've temporarily halted any work on it, as I need to spend time elsewhere and I can't afford to have non working tablets or laptops.

    Maybe as time goes on, somebody will find an easier way, such as dual boot on Android.

    I've also heard reports about Nexus 4 running warm and if you run the battery down, you may not be able to revive it.
