Root your Nexus 7 Flo (2013) on Android 4.4 KitKat (KRT16S)

I have finally laid my hands onto the latest tablet released by Google in partnership with ASUS. It is none other than the Nexus 7 Flo (2013). This tablet though slimmer (8.65 mm) and lighter (290 gram) than its predecessor is much more powerful.

It comes with a 7.02″ 1920×1200 (323ppi) 1080p HD IPS  display, and running on a Quadcore 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with 2GB of memory. The default OS loaded during shipping is Android 4.3 Jellybean, at least for the set that I received. Please kindly perform an OTA update to Android 4.4 KitKat before proceeding with the rooting guide.

Google Nexus Series Released!

The Google event on 29th Oct was cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy approaching. However, that did not stop Google from releasing 2 new devices and bringing to the total number of current models of Nexus devices to 3. Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 were released while Nexus 7 was upgraded. Google sure knows how to pamper its partners. Nexus 4 is produced by LG, Nexus 7 by ASUS and Nexus 10 by Samsung.
