    Sir can you help me figuring what i have did wrong and a possible solution

    before this i succesfully adb sideload from 4.3 to 4.4 by following your guide…but back then i’m not rooted my nexus 7 2013…
    when i’m on kit kat i rooted my nexus 7 just to use stickmount..and then when i want to adb sideload 4.4.4 to 5.0 today i got status 7 error…it said /system/fonts/roboto-light.ttf has unexpected contents…E:/tmp/ error..
    is it because i’m rooted…because i thing i’m not modified anything in the system…i rooted just to use stickmounts…the weird things is what it has to do with the fonts…if possible i dont want to reflash stock image because i dont want to lose my data..thank you

  3. code101 says:

    Do I need to unlock the bootloader on the Nexus 7 to use the update zip? Will it wipe data on the device?

  4. S R says:

    Seems the Nexus 7 2012 file doesnt work, I have a 2012 model and it returns a error device not found – adb is in my path and the test proves ad is up. Do I need ot run it as administrator?

  5. Yehudah Christian says:

    unfortunately…did not work for me…in command prompt I received the error “cannot read”

    • qbking77 says:

      You sure you pasted the file in the platform tools folder? If so, redownload the file

      • Yehudah Christian says:

        just re-downloaded the file…i did notice the beginning of the second file i downloaded is different…but same results…pretty straight forward video…wasnt lost…pasted into folder, but still nada…this is a head scratcher

  8. Harpersneil says:

    Worked perfectly on my Nexus 5, but my Nexus 7 is currently on LPV81C developer preview and I”m not having any luck. I get the error “Package expects buld fingerprint…” etc.
    Any ideas anyone? Will I just have to wait for the OTA? Will the OTA ever come if I’m on Developer Preview?!

  9. CH says:

  10. raj says:

  11. Jonathan Ferrier says:

  12. MD77 says:

    how can i update my nexus 4 from 4.2.2 (JDQ39)
    to 5.0.1 (LRX22C) directly?

    • MD77 says:

      I solved the issue by flashing android 5.0.1 (LRX22C) factory image with fastboot.

      PS: recovery mode does not work in this situation .. you must use flash-all

    telling me device not found, i unplug and plug it back in. But then in
    my Device Manager it shows the Nexus 6 with a ! next to it. Please

    • qbking77 says:

      Try different cable and port on your PC. You have drivers installed on PC?
      If so, did you go into device manager like I showed in the video?
