Google first released the Nexus 7 in May of 2013, and it is still being developed for today. XDA Recognized Developer semdoc has helped to bring official AICP 13.1 Oreo nightlies to this aging Google flagship.
AICP ROM comes with its own tweaks and options that stem from other popular ROMs out there. This means that the ROM borrows the good features of others and combines them into one complete package. While this may seem a little bit shady, the Pac-Man ROM developers have gained permission from other developers to borrow the good features.
– privacy manager is missing at the moment
– no option to config the buttons
– substratum doesent work
- While custom ROMs are a great way to get a fresh experience on your phone, installing these custom ROMs is a risky process. You’ll need a rooted Nexus 7 2013 and a custom recovery TWRP in order to install custom ROMs.
- Make sure that your phone is charged at least 70% before installing the ROM and also create a backup of all your important files. Creating a Nandroid backup is the best option if you have storage space available.
