Pre requisites

  • You must have your device unlocked and rooted.
  • You must have a custom recovery installed, like latest TWRP or CWM. To help you with all of that the Nexus Toolkit might come in handy.
  • Your tablet should be charged over 80%.
  • Some common sense and ability to follow instructions!!


  • Download the latest nightly from here for the Wifi Version
  • LTE Version can be downloaded from here.
  • Download the GAPPs from here or here.

With that done, let’s get this show on the road.

Step 1

Boot into recovery mode. To do so, power off your tablet. Press and hold Volume Down and Power, all at the same time. Release the buttons only when the Fastboot / Bootloader Mode menu appears. Use one of the Volume buttons to change the START text to Recovery Mode. When Recovery Mode option is listed in the above part of the Fastboot Mode menu you can press Power. The custom TWRP / CWM Recovery menu should now appear.

Step 2

Backup your current ROM from your custom recovery.

Step 3

Do a complete wipe, data and cache.(includes Dalvik Cache)

Step 4

Navigate to your SD Card and select the ROM zip file. Flash the ROM. (For your convenience we advise that you keep the zip file at the root of your SD card)

Step 5

If you’re so inclined, flash the GAPPs package by navigating to the SD card and choosing the GAPPs zip.

Step 6

Reboot. The first boot will take longer than others so don’t worry.

We leave you now with a few screenshots of this ROM. If you have any problems please ask in the comment box down below. We’ll be happy to help!
