    Default Nexus 7 4.2 won't update

    Whenever my Nexus 7 prompts me to update to 4.2, it begins to update, and then it shows the little droid character "dead" with an error sign. What's up with this?

    Something is wrong with your recovery. Backup and try factory reset everything or use custom recovery and flash stock 4.2 ROM. Just my way there are probably simpler ways.

    I had the same issue. A factory reset didn't solve the problem. I ended up returning mine.

    This is probably what I'll end up doing. The Walmart I got it at is 30 miles away and it's a bit inconvenient. This is the 2nd Nexus 7 I've gotten, I returned the other one because it had random stuff opening and flickering, screen freezing, etc. I'm about done with Nexus, they need to get it together and stop selling defective tablets.
