I was notified that there was a system update, but when I applied it the tablet was still on the older version of Jelly Bean. I've even done a factory reset and tried again, but no luck. Are there any logs that I can look at to track down the problem?

  • Have you tried over WiFi, or just 3G/4G?

  • It is not rooted. It failed pretty much straight out of the box (I bought it last week). Commented Nov 26, 2012 at 13:50

This turned out to be a hardware issue. I had two relatively pleasant conversations with tech support at google play and asus. Since it was a new purchase I just returned it.


Before updating make full backup of your data.

For update using computer you just need to flash system partition using fastbootfastboot flash system system.img, where system img available at image-nakasi-jop40c.zip available inside nakasi-jop40c-factory-6aabb391.tgz, what you can download from Google Nexus factory images page.

Using scripts from tgz archive will erase your data without prompt!

Dont't flash data, even as you got bootloop (it can be, if you has applications, incompartible with new version of firmware).
