Hello world!


  1. Download the custom Android 4.4.4 ROM built by Paranoid Android from here.
  2. Download Gapps for PA custom ROMs from here.
  3. Move these files to your tablet’s internal storage if you want to successfully install it on your device.
    – if you’ve already downloaded the zip files to your tablet then you can skip this step.
  4. Power off the tablet.
  5. Now you need to boot the tablet in Recovery Mode.
    – both CWM and TWRP Recovery variants are supported by this guide.
  6. First you need to create a NANDROID Backup for the already installed ROM.
    – CWM: select ‘backup and restore’, name the file and confirm process.
    – TWRP: press Backup, rename the file and swipe to confirm.
    – do not skip this step.
  7. Apply the Factory Reset:
    – CWM: select ‘wipe data/ factory reset’, confirm.
    – TWRP: press Wipe. Swipe to confirm process.
    – don’t skip this action if you’re running a different Android custom ROM.
    – if you’re running an older PA 4.4+ beta build, then you can install the new PA 4.4 FINAL build over it.
  8. Install the ROM:
    – CWM: select ‘install zip from sdcard’, then ‘choose zip from sdcard’.
    – TWRP: press Install.
    – find the PA 4.4 Grouper ROM zip file and confirm its installation.
  9. When the custom ROM is installed you can flash Gapps zip, too. Use the same options as in step 8.
  10. After all files are installed you should return to the main custom Recovery screen.
  11. Reboot the tablet now in normal mode.
    – note that this first boot process take a while to complete which is why you should avoid pressing any buttons until you see the homescreen.
  12. Use your Google Account info in order to take control over your Nexus 7 2012 Wi-Fi model.

If the tutorial fails to install all files at the first attempt or your tablet enters into a boot loop, then you will need to repeat the whole guide without skipping any steps.
