This week Google has published the factory images and binaries for its new Google Nexus 7 tablet allowing users to now restore Google Nexus 7 tablets and smartphones to their original (“factory” stage) state.
The release of the Google Nexus 7 factory images and binaries comes just a few days after the he employee responsible for managing the images quit the role over an apparent dispute with chip-maker Qualcomm, which now has been reported as solved.
The new Google Nexus 7 factory images and binaries released this week enable owners of the 2013 Google Nexus 7 previously code named “razor” to now modify the device. But the loss of Jean-Baptiste Quéru, the Google staffer who was responsible at the time for administering the Android factory image software will be a big loss to the Android community.
The latest 2013 Google Nexus 7 device was launched in the US last month and Jean-Baptiste Quéru is thought to have quit his role after politics made it impossible for him to complete certain tasks, with him stating on Google+
“There’s no point being the maintainer of an Operating System that can’t boot to the home screen on its flagship device for lack of GPU support, especially when I’m getting the blame for something that I don’t have authority to fix myself and that I had anticipated and escalated more than 6 months ahead.”
