The 2012 #Nexus7 is officially out of Google’s software support umbrella with the device getting the axe after the introduction of #Android 6.0 #Marshmallow. While this move is not surprising, it has obviously disappointed a lot of users. But knowing the Android dev community, it was only a matter of time before a solution was found.
And now, a developer has managed to cook up a custom Android 6.0 ROM for the 2012 Nexus 7 based on stock Android. However, he warns against using the ROM with the Xposed framework and some other third party offerings which could make the device unstable. While this appears to be a solution for users, it won’t be devoid of issues.
But with that being said, this is the only way to get a taste of stock Android if you own a 2012 Nexus 7 right now. If you’re aware of the procedure involved with installing a custom ROM, make sure you head over to the XDA link below and grab all the details you can along with the download link.
