Deb - Nexus 7 (2013 GSM)

This should probably also work for the Wifi edition (flo).



Halium 7.1 is working for this device thanks to doniks. There is a detailed log by doniks in the ubports forums and a halium/projectmanagement issue. The sources are linked in the forum post.

Kernel & Hardware

Mainline Kernel (4.13rc4 as of writing)

Most of the drivers is already mainlined. Check John Stultzes kernel below for what is missing.

The “John Stultz” almost mainline Kernel (4.11 latest)

John Stultz from Linaro has been working some time on getting everything for the Nexus 7 mainline and the most promising candidate to try on this device should be one of his kernel branches. The 4.10 branch is just 23 commits different from mainline! See here a post from John on the mainlining effort.

LOS 14.1 Android Kernel (3.4.0)

Unclear whether security bug fixes are implemented into this kernel (long term 3.4 kernel @ has version 3.4.113).

Canonical’s Ubuntu Touch Kernel (3.4.0 based)

This is listed because it used the kernel backports to integrate newer drivers in the orginal vendor kernel which might be usefull in some cases. It can be found here.

Device Specifics

This should be populated with guides how to get into different boot modes and similar. Maybe this can be pulled from the LOS device database. For now check the LOS device page linked in the table above.
