Android 5.0.2 Lollipop Nexus 7

Good news, Asus fans! Your Nexus 7 2012/2013 Mobile version gets Android 5.0.2 Lollipop right now. We don’t know if there’s an OTA rollout too, but the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop factory images are available for Nexus 7 2012/2013 Mobile tablets on Google Developers. Last year, Nexus 7 2012 and 2013 Wi-Fi versions got the taste of Android 5.0 Lollipop and later updated to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. You might ask yourself what’s new on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop in comparison with Android 5.0 version? Well, the latest version has some bug fixes, performance improvements and many other background fixes.

Android 5.0.2 Lollipop will bring on your Nexus 7 tablets a whole new experience with a new UI (Material Design), new lockscreen where you can view and respond to messages directly, Priority Mode, new Quick Settings (flashlight, hotspot, screen rotation, cast screen controls), easy toogle on/off for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Location. Also from Quick Settings you can manually adjust your brightness for any condition, like adaptive brightness. Moreover, you’ll have up to 4x performance improvements, new animations, new task manager and I’ll stop here because you should update your tablet right now and discover all the features.

You can download Android 5.0.2 Lollipop factory images for Nexus 7 2012 Mobile here and for Nexus 7 2013 Mobile here. The update process isn’t as easy as OTA is, so you might think twice before you do something wrong. You’ll need a software in order to install the update on your Nexus 7 tablet, so my advice is using Nexus Root Toolkit (download). Proceed to update only if you know what are you doing!

If you have installed the update on your Nexus 7 2012/2013 Mobile, tell us what you think so far in a comment below.

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year

PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.

Belgian developer Larian Studios’ work on Baldur’s Gate 3’s Xbox Series S version will improve performance on all platforms, including PS5. The game’s fifth major patch, expected to launch this week, will include upgrades and new features. More details will be revealed later today.

Director of Publishing Michael Douse says PS5 performance improvements may be the “least exciting thing” in the title’s next update, so it sounds like a big one. Larian Studios employees are proud of “finally” implementing tweaks, fixes, and changes, Douse says. Later today, we’ll bring you all the Baldur’s Gate 3 update details.

Those who reached the RPG’s third act have reported technical issues during the narrative’s conclusion, especially in co-op, so today’s update should fix them. New features like a permadeath mode are expected, along with Xbox Series S optimization fixes. What else should be added to the game?
